Hi there guys,

I just thought I'd share some pics of how my car changed over the Summer and fall....

Fisrt, here is my car almost stock except for the 350 in it


Then my changed with a Hooker Exhaust and Micky tomphson tires


Then along came 15x8 and 15x10 Cragers, and the interior was redone with white piping along the seats ( Front and back)


Then finaly Came the Harwood 4in Cowl hood I bought used, Some Mr.Gasket hood pins, and sunpro Gauges.


There is more to do In the long New England winter, so keep posted smile

Comments?

Looks great, very stout with wheel/tire combo, mixed emotions with the graphics on the covers and piping around them..
I much prefer clear covers, especially during inclement weather and/or night driving..
I'd like to see a better side view, the pinstriping looks fantastic, really spiced it up..

What are you running in the back, a 295? Looks good. Awefully nice paint to get nicked up by the tires sticking out though.

evolution.....


Evolution is a mystery
Full of change that no one sees
Clock makes a fool of history
Yesterday's so long ago, don't agree with what I know.
Tomorrow becomes a place to be.

I see the line in the sand
Time to find out who I am
Looking back to see where I stand
Evolution
Evolution

See my reflection change
Nothing ever stays the same
But you know the names The Game
We all know what it means
Nothings ever what it seems
Unforgiven, unforseen

I see the line in the sand
Time to find out who I am
Looking back to see where I stand
Evolution
Evolution

Take it back home...





lookin great wink any more info in them wide kickass wheels on rear, ?? pics?? side view??

Yup, you are correct.

I am going to have to say that I personally love the new look. Pinstripes/4" cowl(even though I used to think they looked too tall)/blackout covers with the decals/and the wheels-tires-stance looks awesome.

Good Job thumbs
