yeah the wheels look good in the pic but up close you can see the results of 25 year old aluminum. theyre all corrodid and dirty and polish didn't make much of a difference. I want to put 17-18 inch wheels on it if we decide to get new ones. The ride height is perfect though not planning on any mods in that department. Stock suspension in the back and big block springs in the front to raise the front a little. Also plan on flowmaster 40 series mufflers since the ones now have small rust holes and new racing seats similar to the ones in whoevers C3-R that is, only not sparcos, somewhere in the $200-300 range.

he also had to have the fenders opened up to fit the bigass tires. the wheel opening is larger than stock. and does anyone else have a problem here with rocks or wheel weights flinging off the wheels and hitting the front fenders from underneath:bang hasnt happened yet since the new paintjob.

here is a scanned picture from last summer before I got digital camera:
Wow, sounds just like me. I've got a 69 that just found its way into storage until I'm home for the summer. Mine's a convertible though.

Oh, and the only picture I have of it is scanned from when it was a show car some 10+ years ago:
