Re: My EL Ghia

ahhh it breaks your heart to see an XR in that shape! Very sorry for your loss!

But on the plus side (and what a plus it is!), that Ghia is some serious drool material! Excellent choice in wheels - somehow I don't think you'll have any problems with the 'old man' look any time soon!

Congrats on a great ride, some really great touches you've done to it.

Re: My EL Ghia

Thanx for the comments everyone very much appreciated.

Sadowsky5 - trust me it still breaks my heart today. Being my first car and all, and having a dream to own one for many years. However that dream only lasted for 6months. All i can say its that at the end of the day their just cars and try not to get too attached to them.

EFFalcon - im not too sure what springs they are. All i asked was my car to be lowered. And all i was told that kingsprings would be used. I left the rest up to the professionals.

ratm160 - Yes Droooz's ghia, or should that be Droolz's ghia because every droolz over it; is very nice but i dont think i have anywhere near the money to play with my car as wat he spent on his.

Thanx again everyone
