I am SO stealing that car ;) man that thing is P.I.M.P.

bit of advice - does your camera have a "night flash" mode? It exposes the shot as if flash were not used, but uses the flash. built in flash on most cameras is made for close range.

Mine has that option, and I swear by it.

normal flash:


night flash:

Nice! Then again I'm a bit partial to black 242's. I really like the Bertone interior. Makes me want to glue some wood on mine...

I just love it when people say "ur" instead of "your" and "u" instead of "you", I mean it's saving those extra few milliseconds is soooo worth it. NOT. But I do agree that a bad picture really shouldn't be shown, although that picture of yours isn't that bad anyways.

That's a sweet ride you got there! Sounds like you've been having a lot of fun with it too! Suspension, engine, exhaust, music, etc... Great all around. I'd like to see some daytime pictures, especially of the front!

John
