Finally a pic of my baby



List of Mods/Work done:

King Springs Superlows all round with GT Gas shockers
Yokohama A539 Rubber (Bit wider than stock, very good tire)
DBA Slotted Rotors on the front with new Calipers and Bendix Performax Pads
(rears to be done soon)
New Water Pump, New Head, New Power Steering Pump, New tailshaft...Most of the things that have been changed are due to the guy I bought it off being an old dude didnt take very good care of it (coolant was pretty filthy when I bought it, interior was filthy and generally the car needed a big freshen up)

My future plans include a cam, exhaust, wheels ( EL GT or AU XR wheels) and possibly a turbo (wayy down in the future tho)

Let me know what you think!!

Nice Ride...

cars are a lethal weapon,your not invinsible when you get into one,and no matter how much skill you think you have,you are never in control you are always on the edge of death it may not happen today but if you keep driving like you do,you too will end up dead!

Re: Finally a pic of my baby

I'm getting a new windscreen for it this arvo (tried to replace a wiper arm and it spring loaded right into the screen bugger it LOL) and am looking at getting EB ghia color coded handles within the week.. Apart from that like I said the paint is a tad dodgy in some places and i will probly respray it soon... also getting tint done real quick (darkest legal) and maybe a new front bar and rear bumper....

what wheels do u guys think i should go for?
