Now tell the story about beating the firebird in the ES. I have always wondered about that.
ok, it was my buddys car. a 95 3.4L firebird, it had a dual twin flowmaster exhaust a K&N CAI and some sort of chip. so we were alittle toasted and it was about a week after i got my trep back from the trans shop, i had put 500 miles(break in period) on it that day. so we got in my car (this would be a good time to say he lives waaaayyyyy out in the country) and drove from a bridge right down the street from his drive to the nearest cross street, it just happened to be 1/4 mile. so i took him back to his car and we drove to back to the bridge, while we were doing this my third buddy was setting himself up at the cross street, we all had talkabouts. so we lined up and my buddy at the cross street started counting, 1,...2,...3 and we both punched it, well he had me off the line, but as soon as i hit 2nd gear i started to pull away fast, at third i had him by about three cars and by the time we hit the cross street i had him by a good seven. there thats the story of how i beata firebird ina es.

One suggestion that will help a lot... take a can of flat black spray paint and go to town on the wheel wells and all the rusty parts that are visible behind the wheel. When you have a nice set of wheels like you do it sucks when all that crap behind them starts taking attention away from them.

You're not suggesting to paint any of the plastic parts in the wheel wells, are you Pat? They should still clean up and shine up real nice!

on a 14 year old car... i think most of the shine is gone. I've found it much easier in many of the cars I've painted to spray the wheel wells and visible, but beat up looking suspension parts. It at least hides them from any unwanted attention.

Looking good, although not crazy about those weird looking "port-hole" type things on the front fenders.
yeah they were free so i gave them a shot, i hate them, they come off when the weather warms up.
