    Lookin good bro, keep up the good work. Don't be sorry about having more entry ports (doors), on this honey. That is one of the slickest quads going, super nice flow, please do not remove the back door handles to disguise this fact, bad effect in my opinion. Great you and yer Pop are car pals. Rock on guys! ~sololobo~

    Yeah as far as 4-door sedans go, these are the ones to have. You'll have the coolest car in the school lot, as far as I'm concerned.

    Any planned body mods? If I can make a suggestion, '54 Oldsmobile caps look great on these :)
