Love it when others go above and beyond in here. It gives other members inspiration to mod their rides and constantly think of new ideas.

This also must be co$ting a pretty penny....so if you have any "Extra" you can toss some my way anytime

Geoff, I'll be down at Dreamakers for liquid breakfast Sat. morning if you want to see car. They close at noon and I have to be in Ouguaga that afternoon and Sunday so let me know and we'll setup a time. I wanted to go to Carlilse this weekend for the swap meet also but to much to do this weekend. If you or anyone else in Northeast want to see the car at the Custom Car Show at Carlilse, PA May 5-7 It will be on display in the Dreamakers vendors spot

Anthony ya a very pretty penny. The bagstruts are cutting edge suspesion and cost near $800 alone. For anyone interested in lowriding the full cost of project for all the parts, DOT certified welder, installation came in at just over $2600. Not shown in pics are the sleeves that govern height and have to be welded directly to the bagstruts and tabs that are welded to sleeves and drilled to attach to front end. Everything has to be custom fitted and height and angles judged by a professional,
it'* not something thats bolts on and ya go. It'* a one shot deal and screw it up-Buy another.

Extra Money??? I feel like the guy in commercial telling of all he has and exclaiming" I'm in debt up to my eyeballs... can somebody Help me!) I'm gonna need therapy and an accountant to straighten this out before I'm done. But it is sooooooo cool

Always good to see someone pushing the envelope John... Remember..keep reminding yourself about the money.."I can't take it with me...and they'll have a tough time collecting when I'm dead" (Least that'* what I keep thinking for myself)

I hear ya Bill, but I gotta eat and have Beer money too!

Shadow I'm in area where i feel lucky to have houses rented AND paying.
Carlilse PA and it'* one of the biggest custom shows in country on 82 acres of display area...... http://www.carsatcarlisle.com/

The show was moved couple years ago to Penn Sate (cause the security gaurds got beat up getting in the wrong peoples face)(and contrary to rumors I was not involved) But money talks and they want us back. Which is cool because they dont let police inside the fairgrounds. It'* a real zoo with everyone in the custom business there and some of the coolest rides you'll ever see.

You sound like my friend: bought a 03 cobra- $23,000
all his mods- $15,000+ (maybe even more)
in debt up to his eyeballz- Yes!
but the best part is, he bought the car and gave it to his wife for her birthday... she has driven it once in a year in a half!!!

Wakefield the pic was taken at the custom shop where the bagstruts were purchased. I have 18 inch GXP rims that I think are going to JimmyFloyd is something is worked out.... If not $700 firm. But have 16 inch wicked swoop style chromes and OEM rubber, Both with 7000 miles on and still look fresh.Came off my Buick Lacroose CXL,... look down through the for sale section of forum and you'll see them.

Green Machine , thats toooo funny. I bought a 78 Mustang II new for wife and totalled it with 900 miles on it . And had to buy her a Thunderbird to hear the end of it.
