The way it looked not long after I got it, 3 years ago:







And how it looks now:







It was originally a Chesterfield County Virginia car, complete with roof lightbar, spotlight and stripes. The stripes had been removed with a razorblade and there were rubber plugs in the holes on the roof. The holes have all been welded shut, as well as the spotlight cutout. I also had the trunklid smoothed - no more keyhole or trimholes. Glasstek 2" cowl hood, a repro protoype "sspoiler", NiteShaded tails, black SS Imp grille, bumper trim inserts and wheel lip moldings are the other body 'mods'. The engine was freshened up last winter. It is a stock bottom end with a Comp cam and a set of massaged Camaro heads. Plus the usual laundrylist of bolt-ons. The 4L60e has been swapped out for a T56/4.56 combo. Wheels are ARE TT2Classics.

Coming soon: Window tint (next week) and extended rear control arms & driveshaft.

VERY NICE!
Glad to see something a little different. The Americans really add a nice touch too.

Beautiful car. Those are great looking wheels. For tint, maybe consider the mirror-type tint that Zeibert offers now. Makes it even harder to see into the car, but still legal as far as the % goes.

The two tone paint job looks great on your car! I like the old style wheels too.

Thanks for the compliments! I don't plan on going too dark with the tint. Just enough so that the windows kinda 'flow' better with the look of the car.

And while I'm whoring pics - here's a higher-res shot from a cruise night a few weeks ago, just as the sun was setting.
