I normally don't go for lowered cars. But good lord. That is awesome. Love it! Is that LT1 purple metallic?

That looks awesome to me, I like when the wheels fit just right in the wheelwells. And if a 305 sounds that good with different mufflers maybe I should consider doing something to mine... Laughing

I'd hit it. Smile

But absolutely hating the blacked out bumpers and grill. Yuck.

Agreed on the grille/bumpers. I think they'd look cool in body color with bumper bolts though.

I think the black accented stuff is perfect. Really sets up the body for depth and shape. I bet it would be even better all black. But a PITA to keep clean

Yes indeed, that car is nice looking, great color choices, subtle, austere and VERY Bad-Ass.

I've got the same Canuck springs in mine, very firm riding, and well balanced front to rear.

do you have a picture of the canuck springs car? Also, do you have a link where to purchase them. I'm gonna go with those or sprints at this time.

Leave it to me to not like it! Of all people right?

Hate the black bumpers and such, and its just too low for a box for me. Call me old fashioned but I like(ed) the way mine sat with a little bit of rake.


As a car, I love it! It just needs to be an inch higher for me! But thank god its not rollin on dubs Surprised

'Hate to burst your bubble...lol... but I think this is an older view of the car. It may, or may not have 20"+ now. I'll check the big forum again later. But, it appears to have a subtle rake in the vid. It works for me. I dont like the reverse gasser look like the ca[color:e8d7=#000]rs Kurt Russell destroyed in Death Proof. No thanks.

Why does everyone do that to these cars!? Just buy a friggen truck! No need to lift it! Oh well, I like the look to an extent reverse gasser is going a little too far for me! LOL just a slight rake.


Taken from the Big Board THIS is what I look for in a box

I think the car is great except for the side exhaust. I keep everything the same but change the exhaust exit.

I think boxies look better without the chrome trim on the bottom. I tried taking the trim off my 87 and 85. Needless to say, it'd be best if I left it on. Well, considering they were holding the panels together... Mad

Haha, I would have to have the chrome replaced after my car is painted. The biggest bitch will be getting the spear molding to look right when it's painted. I really can't ave that replaced when there is nothing to replace it with Rolling Eyes
