      I like it a lot, but if it were mine, I would definitely change out that rear hatch for a stock one and I'd put on a golf ball shift knob.

      This, too. And black out your mounting screws for the headlights and turn signals in the bumper

      How do you open the hatch? And I like the car, but I would set it a little closer to the ground if it were mine.

      car is super nice, remember seeing it on here in the past. take good care of it. I personally think the hatch is unique. Wheels arent my style but very clean car none the less.

      goodluck

      Looks like a clean car. Maybe smaller wheels and tires?? Looks like a rabbit on steroids.
      I even like the hatch.

      I'm interested in your block and head combination, any issues joining the two, hows did work, what kind of power are you making. I posted a thread about doing the samething but everyone said the compression ratio would so hight you would have to run race gas.

      What size tires are those? They look like 195/50's.

      Very nice car. I'd de-silver stripe the front grill, go back to two front wipers, get rid of the beer tap shift knob, point the lights correctly and call it good enough until I tackled replacing the trunk lid. All very minor stuff in the grand scheme of things.

      Car looks good, but as was stated before get a regular hatch for it. Also a bud light tap handle in WI, shame shame. Don't wreck it on any of those hilly roads out there

      Please dont wreck this car- I remember being a high school senior- If u want to drive fast, just go to the racetrack.

      Not that it matters, but what do the high school stuendts think about your car. Im curious bc I am a high school teacher!
