Car currently is in "intermediate winter mode..."

It is running the steelies with the 225/50/15 inters, and i also have a set of brand new Blizzaks for full winter mode!!
Am also using the Kamei grill, so the chrome badgeless wont get damaged in winter! We havent had any snow yet, so, the inters and the chrome mirror covers are still on!

Bump this up!!

Somebody has to want a winter beater with show winning capabilities!!!

By the looks of the car I'd say that it does not classify as a "winter beater" :p

Good Luck with the sale, the car looks sweet. If you were a bit closer I might consider it but I'm not sure what I'd do with two Candy Whites :thumbup:

Pardon the ignorance..What is that on the sides? Is that an effect of the picture or is that a jeep cherokee wood wagon look? Just curious. Its in some picture but not in all.

You are correct, it was woodgrain. It started as a joke for a show, and the response was so overwhelming, I ran it for an entire season of shows.

Gonna snow here tomorrow (and rained all weekend), so I didnt get the car washed and get the interior done. It has rained in 10 of the past 12 days here in Indy, so once we get a single dry day, I will get the interior pix and clean car pix very soon!!!

I would be up or a roadie to meet 1/2 way, but the car doesnt like snow very well with the current suspension on the car, and I cant get the time off work!! Shipping is available however......;-)

As I've told you before, this was the reason I joined www.clubb5.com and started to mod my car - shame to see you selling, lets hope someone here buys it and carries on the good work

Bump.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone, it brought a tear to my eye, especially after the luke-warm reception I got at Treffen last year!!!

I am not interested in parting the car out at all, as the modifications add value for no money in the car!!! (actually, I am just too lazy to part it out - lol)

I really want to pass this car along to someone who will love it and care for it as I did.....this car is 95% to being a certified show stunner, and just needs a couple things to make her the perfect project I envisioned when I bought it!!!

bump and thanks again for the compliments everyone!!!

S4 suspension upgrades came from ECS tuning...

sorry for the delay on interior and trunk pix! Has been a long, crazy and crappy midwest week! Rain every day, like I'm in seattle or something (no offense to the pnw peeps, but i dont know how u do it)!!!

Pix will get posted on Saturday if the car isnt sold!!!
