Was a nicer day than expected. I look like a tomato and so did everyone else by the end of the day. Here are some of my pics didnt really take many until it was over and only a few were still hanging around. After we cruised to a nearby reservoir and shot a few more.

A beautiful morning
Image

Me and a few buddies after most people left. I also just noticed my friends M5 somehow snuck into the backround of these pictures even though I didnt see her all day :chin:

Image

Image

Matt, your buddy actually hung around with us after and it made for some nice photos at the reservoir.

Everybody's cars were looking amazing today. Love the wheel change Matt :yeah:

It really was an amazing day to cruise with the t tops off! Nothing like a bunch of V8's burbling in to show those subies and hondas whats up!!

I also look like a tomato, and kim is even worse. When she gets sun she just fries. Thanks about the wheels, I absolutely LOVE how they come out and how they look on the car as a whole. I couldnt be happier and it makes the hours I have working on them all worth it.

BTW, Mark, you know the GT40 that showed up with us, did you hear what happened? He had to be towed out because he bottomed out (on train tracks driving to the show) and cracked his oil pan. There was a HUGE oil spill in the far lot from him loosing a ton of oil.

I heard that he split the oil pan but nobody knew exactly where. The train tracks make a lot more sense than a bump coming in. I followed the long ass train of oil to find out who was losing it and ended up the GT40 :lol: Poor guy.

Seems to be a love/hate thing with them on this board and others. I like them honestly. I had a set on my former iroc and this car came with them. I think they really clean up the rear end of the cars. The grid style tail lights these cars came with really date them and this cleans it all up in my opinion. The one piece of advice i can give you is to not get the headlight covers. Ive heard nothing but horror stories with those.

Nah as far as i know hes never been pulled over in it.

As for the charger....get rid of those STUPID wheels and H-O-M-O doors and it would be a nice ride. They just ruined it with all that cheezy crap. Its meant to be riding on some keystones, cragers or mag 500s. Not Donks. :puke:

the pistons on the doors of that charger must be crazy beefy! Those doors are no light weights!

That datsun is pure sex on wheels but I am biased. I waited for a while for the owner to come around at the CCSU car show, I never did get to talk with him.
