needs a drop^^ just buy some used springs if you don't want to spend much money. and then space your caps out and it'll look 10x better.

I love the cars, just not the bumpers. They stick out entirely too far for me. Yours looks pretty clean. Nice!

My bumpers are tucked, only about an inch further out than the late models.

Some more driveway shots, washed off a million dead bugs. Cars basically the same, made my corner splitter blend with the regular splitter. Working on a new intake for the miller MAF still.

OK. Here's the 88 as she stands. Still needs work, but she runs well.



Gotta replace the exhaust, and do shifter bushings, engine and trans mounts next. I miss my eta.........

Crappy cell phone pics. My daughter dropped my camera.

Your bumpers are under there. Rip that stuff off, and find some good bumper surrounds.
