  4. Dig the car, but put the whitewalls back on, please! Oh yeah, fix that droopy door handle while you're at it. :D

    Nice car both ways, but liked the contrast of the whitewalls better........but that is just me. Maybe put the trim rings back on the blackwalls.

    I like the black walls maybe try the rings but I think I would just make the door handle set level.

    That car is screaming for a set of thin line red wall tires. No question.
     
  17. So the change is the tires or the chamge is from inside the garage to outside the garage. I am gojing to say different tires or not changing from inside the garage to outside the garage is a damned good change. ;)

    Now here is an even better change, get out of that parking lot and go kill some bugs.

    I like the black walls by the way. I have always prefered blackwalls to white walls. White walls have always been so mom's car to me. Guess I am just not a died in the wool custom guy.
     
  18. looks great either way!!

    Like the black walls, gives it that shine-hauler vibe. Droopy door handle says used regularly.

    Black walls for me,

    Not usually a fan of red wheels, (Don't shoot me), but they do look right on that car.
