Dude, your car came out perfect! I love it! You need to do a photoshoot. I bet it gets quite few second takes. Garage is sick too. I want a clean setup like that. I need to upgrade the lighting soo bad.

I owned one for eight years- hardly a piece of ****. :buttkick: The fact that, considering their age, there are so many still alive and kicking says a lot.

sxxxt- where did you pick this one up? Has it always been an IN car?

Oh, okay. I was curious as to the "Midwestern rust" factor (what killed my 1GN).

I guess I've heard more bad things about 1st gens than good, but I still want one badly...they just look bad-ass and would love to have a '98-99 R/T coupe very much. Can't wait to see what you have in store for yours!
