      The front bags are RE6s and the rears are Aero Sports. The car does not begin to lift until about 55 psi. 80 psi is still very low (1" of ground clearance to the exhaust) but rides and handles...

      Since the body on this car is so high, here is a picture of the pan and chassis when the car is aired out. It may be hard to tell since the floor isn't uniform, but the back end of the pan is about...

      Not the best picture but this is normal ride height. The car airs up about 2-2.5" (which only gets me about 1-1.5" of ground clearance to the exhaust since it flexes into the body when I air it out)...

      Do you have pictures of these wheels?

      Yea I am not sure if it is a 500 or a 560 that he drives in that movie but I think that is a bit above his price range in those days. Either way, I just need to find a fence to drive through, whilst...

      It's been a busy past couple of weeks but here are a few pictures of the new setup. Wheels fit very well but the back wheels need spacers to get rid of the interference with the chassis and lower...

      I will work on more drivetrain and audio pictures for you guys. The previous motor had a hole in the block so I ended up with a freshly rebuilt long block by Adsit in Indiana, so the majority of the...

      A little teaser for what is to come. Ended up getting 17 x 8.5s (pictured) and 17 x 10s. Hopefully these offsets and tire diameters allow this car to lay frame instead of having the tires hold up...

      Yes that is a Nardi wheel. It makes the steering feel amazing since the original wheel is 4" bigger and the power steering is way overassisted.
