No offense Mike, but that is waaaay nicer than your last one. I think the pics make it look oddly tall.

Now you just need to update your siggy

Oh, no offense taken. I know this black one looks and drives FAR better than the 95 ever did.

I see no difference in the HiRes photo or the forum friend ones. When you make them forum friendly you are resizing proportionally, so you wouldn't get any weird stretches in the image.

I went out and looked, the tires are Goodyear Allegra'* 225-60-16'*. I do know that the struts were replaced all around about 2 months ago.

Yes it is. Matter of fact, I am the 3rd owner. The previous owner spent about 700 in new parts for the car itself. He owned it for about 4 months before the engine went. Then he posted it for sale. The 1st owner bought it from the local dealer here in town and the car has been here ever since.

The underside is pretty much spotless. If I get a chance tomorrow, I'll throw it up on the rack and try and get pictures.
I have paperwork for an alighment back in December, but its off now. Maybe due to the engine swap?? Dunno, but I'm gonna get that looked at soon.

Looks really good for a car that was towed to your house about a week ago.

BTW, you gotta light up the Pontiac on the center tail.

(Sorry..but Dan'* fixing and won't do extra things like this til his car is fixed......)

That is a sweet looking car Mike. I hope you stocked up on your cleaning supplies! It'* tough keeping a car like that shiny. Definitely worth the time though.

Actually Bill, the car came in on a flat bed trailer thanks to Rich. And I'm really interested in that lighted up Pontiac logo now!!

Yea Tom, I need to invest in a buffer/polisher to fix some smudge marks. You can see under the drivers side mirror where it use to dangle and it fooked up the CC on the door.

I wonder if I can get some free time at the shop today to bring it in and do some minor stuff...

After looking at the unmodified picture and the modified one it is indeed the resizing that made the car look like it sits high.

No need to worry now!
