Don't ask me how I know, but you'd better go 3-fingers, hehe.

Ditto those 20"s set it off.

If only my car had been "finished" 3 years ago it would have been okay, now the bar is raised so high, it's tough to compete. My little "dubs" are no match for those wheels. I don't know what everyone else is doing but I have modified C5 Corvette markers on my car.

Starting from this:


Lowering to this



Widening to this:



Raising the bar to this: American Exotic

And the car isn't finished! Oh yeah, poor excuse for bumping, but pg 6 need pics, hehe.

Honestly, I didn't think it would look better at first, but it turned out really great. That says a lot when you start out with an already great car.

Yes, I am going to run without side markers until I am forced to put them on the car. I passed the out of state inspection so I should be free and clear unless I run into a cop with an attitude. The guy's at the inspection station were more interested in checking out the car and asking questions then anything else so it went pretty well.

Yep...that's turning out awesome!
I can't wait to see it completed,with paint.
Although I do like the flat black.I've just about decided that my next project will be a flat black notch.Doubt I can afford a chop top or a wide body...but I can always dream.

You are lucky, I often run into jerks that are just looking for reasons to fail me.

Okay, head straight to Starbucks (bring the camera), park the car, go inside to order up some brew, sit back and take notes of how many people are viewing the chopper, take spy pics, and come back here to report and post, hehe.

Never Forgotten...

Yes, I got this in memory of my 19 year old nephew that was killed in Iraq 3 years ago this Thanksgiving. I had them on my '88 GT but the plates stay with the owner so when I sold the T-Top I moved them to #13.
