I hope I can get mine looking that good! (you've also helped me confirm what my car would look like with the headlight trim painted black, I don't like it.)

because it is. :-P

i like the way the body of the car muffles the sound a bit, i like how it blows dirt and dust out the side of the car with the mean ass sound when you get on the throttle, doesn't attract so much attention from law enforcement because as far as they can tell i have a broken exhaust instead of an in-your-face huge pipe out the back.

it actually exits toward the right rear tire and out the side, the pipe just doesn't make it that far.

possibly because it is from a damn CHRYSLER!? i work with what i can find at the junkyard, i have a trans am spoiler but i am not putting more holes in the trunk lid until i find a spare.

Should put a long, sweeping drag race spoiler on the edge of the trunk. Something to cover the chutes.

yeah the spoiler is not a perfect fit, it is better than having none. i will do another spoiler when i get a fresh trunk lid to have as a spare... i don't want to molest the current trunk lid with holes until i have something to default to if it leaks.

+1 on the Canistos. I wanted a set for a long time for Sylvanna before I decided on going deep dish.

Should change it to Strom. Your car is old, white, and powerful.

Pretty sure Matt's car has a baboon heart. Hey, another thing it has in common with Strom...

There's also this:

I still maintain that Canistos look like ass on the C70, but really really work on your car. I never would have guessed it.

I always wondered what this quick little monster looked like. Nice clean ride man. Those canistos are some of the wider wheels from factory volvos. Always a plus.

you know i looked at that, went out with a level and checked them, they aren't actually crooked. it must be the angle of recess against the colored trim? i thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, i will go check it out again tomorrow in some good light.

thanks for the compliments all.
