Supermarkets > dad.

I think this'll be just another excuse to replace that tail that was already a bit cracked in the first place Now just a matter of scoring one in a junkyard.



Oh well, I'll just ***** some other pics to make it not look so bad.


o.O shiny - the car is a bit dusty however, as you can see




New tires: Cooper-made Starfire Flite-line IV'*, replaced the really worn out 215/60R16 Goodyear Eagle GA Touring. $320 for the four, bought at wholesale (connections, too bad only for immediate family, else I'd try to hook you guys up), they seem to ride a bit quieter than the Goodyears.

heh, I knew I'd get a comment about that strut.



It'* only 4 years old, and for one of those years, the car was parked in a garage, undriven. Generic KYB strut. The Monroe air shocks put in last summer don't look too good, either

Agreed. Theres something about the black 89-91 Bonne'* that I like so much. It makes me think about how nice my car would look with paint, and some less faded tails.

Damn dude, I am surprised that strut still works! It does look like it is going to fall to pieces.

Finally repin gets new tires, too!
