Those wheels are so cool!
Theres a Corrado round the corner with them and I lust after them daily, haha.
The roof looks sweet like tropicana 8)

lol. wish i could of had the 9's on it rather than the 7.5's but there is just no way they would fit without some custom arch work. take abit of machining also to get them on here even as they are lol. this is james on marks computer btw

i love your 5, it's definitely up there with the best. strap your engine to a matress and get someone you don't like to catch it when it slides down the stairs
keep the machinery between the greenery
