Reading here though, my driving needs to change a good bit, and to fix the a/c so the windows can stay up (and t-tops on, but their just so cool )

Though many of the mods you guys give to other cars, is pretty much already here on this. No grille opening, full width air dam underneath (the center scoops up air for the radiator, the sides direct air around the tires). Hidden wipers.. small mirrors.


Lets see how far it can go

"All I know about music is that not many people ever really hear it. [...] But the man who creates the music is hearing something else, is dealing with the roar rising from the void and imposing order on it as it hits the air. What is evoked in him, then, is of another order, more terrible because it has no words, and triumphant, too, for the same reason. And his triumph, when he triumphs, is ours." -Sonny's Blues
