You usually put them in the doors, Carl.
I would at least take the time to get the wiring ran to the doors. I can take a picture of where my rear door speakers are located and send it to you.

Would this be stupid? I have an old suit case that I keep in the car to conceal spare parts and tools. Rather than putting holes in trim panels, I was thinking about putting two 6x9's in the top of the case with some type of quick disconnect for the wiring so I could remove it easily to carry stuff. One problem that occurred to me is that the speaker magnets would attract any ferrous-based items in said suit case.

I used to have a couple suit case radio set ups in my air cooled days. I think it’s cool but that’s my opinion.

Boom baby! Four is better that two...








$25 for the fronts, $50 for the rears, $25 for wire, etc. Sounds good!

Thanks for the dope Virgos Gavin! These are going to make some sweet snow wheels.

195/60R15 vs 215/55R16. Virgos are classic. Any problem using non-Virgo lugs? Maybe go to a slightly taller 195/65 snow tire.

MTL in the trans, redid the upper alternator bracket. Start putting together my tool kit. I think we’re ready.

It drives the best it ever has for me! The Virgos that came with the car had trash tires. So I "improved" it by going to steamrollers (215/55R16) on Hydras. Steering wander ensued. (And of course all the worn suspension / steering junk). The tires that came on the new-to-me Virgos are worn. Plan to spoon on a new set of 195/60R15 all-seasons and drive to Davis in non-tramlining bliss.

Hydras now for sale. Maybe the set up would drive better on a 7 or 9 series.

My kid took the photo. Amazing.

Great photo, the Virgos look loads better! I've never liked Hydras on 240s personally.

you do want 16s, but the hydra is not the most attractive wheel out there.

Turned 51 today.

Spent a few minutes with my youngest. She moves out in two weeks. In some respects my relationship with my oldest is better as he starts his life on his own. Still kind of sad. Every father should have a daughter.
