Say what you will about those ghetto rims, I think they look great with a matalic forrest green paint scheme. BTW, I am a purist, not a ricer...I like the original look, especially for my sleeper Supercharged SE. It came with those "ghetto rims" and it will stay with them (Pictures will be up soon). I also think that WillWren'* idea of a customized trailer with matching paint/16 in gold rims sounds great.
As for being a purist, I do make an exception on performance mods. All in the name of fun at the expense of unsuspecting rice crispies!!!
A NC engine was designed to run on 87 octane, but by no means does that mean that it won't run better on high-test, especially under street racing conditions. Run what you want and be happy
After all, that'* why we have Bonnies! As for my SC, my owners manual says that my car was designed to run on 91++, but makes the allowance for 87-90 octane. But when I tried it (to save money) the knock controll robbed all of my zip and made the car act as though the blower was only operating spiratically under load. I will never do that again!
