How in the hell are you going to do that when it says SuperCharged on each door!
Either it was to small for people to notice or the sign fell off!

No HUD, no compass, yes DIC. I still like it. You can trick alot of people with it by having them think you have a regular motor in it.
What is a "DIC"? Actually, the dual tail pipes are hidden behind the bumper facia and have a turn-down. It is the same mufler as the SSEi without the tips or the cut-outs in the bumper.

As for tricking people into thinking it has an NA, I don't know if I could 'trick' them, but they would really have to be looking closely as it doesn't look like the SSEi. In a street race situation, where we don't stop to compare notes prior to the race, they may not notice the badges while moving, and therefor may not be aware of the SC. The '96 and '97 only had one badge on the deck lid and was therefor a better "sleeper" until it passed the ricer or other victim. I will never deviate from stock appearence as I am a purist in that regard. Performance mods, on the other hand, are a must! Just haven't made my mint yet.

Yeah, and I finally got some pics developed from my vacation, two of which were taken of my car before I left. (my 35 mm was the only camera that wasn't stolen on my vacation). I brought them in today and asked the secretary to scan them in as a favor. She is now having problems with her scanner so it may be later today or tomorrow before I can post. Must trouble shoot equipment first.

I'll hold my breath! I'd love to see it. Probably the only one I'll ever run into! You've gotta great one there.

Don't hold your breath! I've been trying to do this ever since I joined (a few days after you). It will have to be after the secretary catches up and has time to trouble shoot the equipment. I don't know her schedule. I've seen some of these promises to post broken too many times (Speedguy'* website, Your Timeline--no offense). But just like those projects, I will get these posted sooner or later.

Ouch. Your point is well taken. I'll stop pestering you.




Got the scanner fixed yet?

Mine is loaded with every trick in the book except for low jack and the stupid club. That said I know people who could get around it. Knowing those people is the real key to security. Mess with my stuff and you go by by.
