Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.

Why do they call it "common sense" when, in fact, it has become so uncommon?

That's my opinion, it outta be your's.

They say "Maserati" to me more than Corvette, but to each his own.

My first impression was kind of negative. But the more I look at them, the more I like them.

They look like someone took some wagon wheels, chromed them and then said, "What the hell, let's add some more spokes!" My opinion?

Kind of looks like a descendant of 70's era Pontiac honeycomb wheels.

My first opinion is exactly what I posted. When I first saw that picture of the car and before I read any of what you posted, I looked at those wheels and went ugh!

They look like glorified wagon wheels to me. You asked, I am responding.
