Very cool!

How many miles were on the car when you bought it in 1991? How many miles now? Must of been a dependable car for you to keep it so long?

Yes they are 16 inch, 81,000 when I bought it and now 177,670 just installed the front lip today to see how I'm going to like it. Need to paint it then decide.

That thing is really sweet. Im impressed cuz colts dont always look "cool". Its a great color combo on the wheels and body. Whats your suspension system? Its pretty low is it very stiff?
