    "Buzz" after lowering and 15x7 rims w/ 195/55-15's

    Finally got around to clipping the front and rear springs together... here is the new retro inspired look:

    Such a nice mix of retro/modern. Great job! (Followed your other posts about your suspension drop and appreciate all your insight and experience on them!)

    Well... I have some bad news about "Buzz". There was a woman driving an Acura who pulled out of a parking lot right in front of me. I attempted to miss but I had ran out of lane to miss her - long story short, Buzz has a bit of damage. I'll know if he's totalled sometime next week. I am still fuming. GRRRRR

    Noooooo! Well, as has already been said, so long as YOU are OK, that's all that really matters. When cars get totaled, it involves paperwork, some money, and annoyance. When people get totaled, we have to dress up in fancy clothes and have the worst party anybody could ever imagine.
