Wheels really suit the car, love the parallels.

Good to see it back al.

Real men run fixed suspension not bags!
My golf is pretty low. You have to jims of go over speed bumps a wheel at a time.


i'm really tempted to try bags, i just want suspension i can adjust from inside the car...my cars not slammed just because i wouldn't be able to get it out of my drive if i did slam it.

It is taxed (OUCH), tested and back on the road. Now all I need is for the rain to stop so that I can get it out of the garage! Fuel is a lot more expensive since last it was used too!

Those big old carbs aren't exactly subtle either. It fires flames from the exhaust on the over run which starts to cost more in money than can be good!
