    Kiwi, It was big of you to admit that you bounced the car a little to get that effect. I was wondering about the traction as well. Doesn't matter. That is a BITCHIN shot of you and the car. I saved it to my collection!!!!!!!!!!

    Imitation is the finest form of flattery...

    What shade is that? Mines just gold engine paint out of a rattle can from *duh* Carquest.
    Sure is mighty purdy huh? I think all of my engines will be that color, like a signature.:D

    I had originally planned on going candy apple red and cream on mine.....but now I'm thinking black and gold.
    Think I'll go back to red and cream.:D

    Same damn gold! **dies**

    Hahaha black and gold is a new wave, we could be twinsies! I'll learn to wear button down shirts and you can learn to wear my leopard print high heels.

    Lengthen your calves, but MURDER on your ankles.:D

    Tony,

    Who makes those valve covers? I ran across a pair of those and the guy thought that they were Corvettes from '69 up. They are similar but not the Chevy part. I may buy them just because they are unique.

    I've got a set of Cal Customs.....minus the breather holes and with no provision to punch them out either.

    Those look like the later models but who's to say.:D
