    I wish mine was even CLOSE to what you had to start with.. For a few simple mods, it already looks better and tougher. What else (BIG PLANS?) do you have in mind?

    Gorgeous! Love the color.

    billy -

    I like the drop, but prefer the original wheels and caps. The Olds "flippers" are too much. Maybe wide whites though?

    Hope you can resist the urge to hack it up. Just my 2-cents, of course. Do what you will, and have fun.

    I like the dog dish caps better too, I'm just not a big fan of those flippers. Maybe with thin trim rings the original caps would look nice.

    The color's really nice in person, it's hard to describe, it's almost like a candy.

    I hope you find a sun visor for it. I agree, it should be cholofied, not customized, you being a Mexican deep in your soul.
     
  14. Did someone say visor? PM me or check the classfieds...price is neg.

    I like the stance better now, but I think it'd look great as a tail-dragger!

    Do you have an EIGHT TRACK to play some FOREIGNER?

    Can't wait to see it in person and hear those straight pipes.
