Coolest car on TCL.
Subscribed! Super clean car!
Fix the gauges dandling by the wires and it will almost be perfect.
Skinny wheels & sticky tires are part of what makes these cars so much fun to drive, especially on bumpy back roads. Yes, you can get even more grip with wider rubber but you lose some of the fluid handling characteristics. I love sticky, tall, skinny tires on small wheels. Keep it period correct!

What is a Homologation car you ask?
The most egregious mod is the 16v bee stinger antenna. But I kinda like it
time for a small update. I've found the time to take care of the gauge problem. I made a little pod to hold the two extra gauges for the turbo, a boost gauge (Callaway no less!) and a air/fuel ratio gauge I didn't want to mount it and have to drill into anything, so it took a little extra time to figure something out. here it is. and I found a cool surprise when I took the centre console out.

when I took the console out, this was hiding behind it. obviously from when the cassette player was installed in the 80's sometime
