Default If you had $1000....

If you had $1000 to spend on your car *on your Bonneville*, what would you do?


I would fix everything that is wrong with my interior. Then I would fix my dent collection and put the trim back on my car. After that, I would spend the rest of it on engine mods.

I'd also choose a new paint job and then I would spend the rest on audio related things such as a HO alternator and new headunit. If I had any money left over after that, the rest would go towards some chrome torque stars.
