Default The Imp is back and now with Attitude

been a long while since I've been on here but hey life happens LOL

here are some pics with the new wheels and tires added to the Imp

These are the Factory 18'* from my Equinox SS that I sandblasted then had done body color to the Equinox. but for the time being they are sitting on the Imp wrapped in 235/50/18 Goodyear Eagle GT'*

More pics to follow tomorrow after the Imp gets a bath and hopefully the sun comes out and makes the Carbon Flash Metallic on the wheels POP like they are supposed to!

That is one confused car. First it goes full 9C1, now its got rims and what looks to be aftermarket exhaust. Have you been feeding your car coffee again?

Yes Tommy and lots of it!!! It now has full SS grilles, my trademark red/black Bowtie, debadged, Equinox SS 18'*, and a full Magnaflow stainless Exhaust (insurance paid for that when my rear end got stuffed) she also has a full FE3 suspension and not a sign that the spotlight was ever there LOL

it'* got a nice low rumble when it'* idling and a nice purr when she'* on her way.

I'll have to get a video up of the exhaust. I've met up with a few forum members recently but I has the SS when I did so no one here has seen this car in over a year LOL

looks alot nicer that way, than the cop stuff IMO. i wouldn't have guessed oem cobalt wheels they look aftermarket. it does seem like they are putting nice wheels on every other brand small car though. seems like they cheap out with all the chevy wheels though.
