Did you do any underbody work? Frame connectors, bracing, that sort of thing? That'* an awful lot of car to be jumpin around.
Love the paint, and that interior is SPOTLESS... Not so hot on the little tiny wheels though. I understand that the clearance is needed for dancing, but I would love to see that thing slammed down over some 18"* with whitewalls, or even some not-too-blingy 20"*... :pimp:

I've been looking at a blue Parisienne down the way, and if the guy'* willing to part with it, I want to do the old-school lead sled treatment...
