Cool 'stang, I've always liked that shape. 4.6?
Corona looks cool, as always. I still think it'd look better on the stock 13's, or maybe a set of 13x8 slot mags? Meh, it's still cool :)


Thanks bro! Nah its a v6. Has several different model upgrades on it tho so you cant tell until you hear it. And as far as the wheels go on the yoyo, the stockers are gonna go on when I find a super cheap set of tires to go on them. Painted them quickly today :)

Thanks guys. Im still trying to find 2 more 15" cressida steelies to coat in the same color. Then it will be more legit IMO. Put 12mm spacers on it the other day all the way around so my center caps on the honda wheels fit. Still got to get the toyota decals made to cover the lame H lol.

P.S. Dont buy points from autozone because even though they fit, they dont work.

Ass is getting raised soon. Driveshaft decided to hit in front of where I clearanced :evil: I found some helper springs that go over the shocks that I am going to compress the shit out of and install on my shocks, hopefully raising it and effectively stiffening the suspension. I guess we will see. :?

Got dis bish on the road finally. GOnna have to buy a weber 32/36 DGV in order to make it run perfectly because I am tired of dealing with this stock one. One wheel is mismatched because im broke from lawyer fees and cant afford to buy one to match. But all will change when I graduate from UNCC and become an engineer. :mrgreen: Also its not low enough because the tires are too fat and it needs 14's instead of 15's. And I had to jack up the rear end with helper springs around to shocks to keep the driveshaft from hitting the tunnel.

The wagon has lived and died several times since my last post. It lives as of right now which is good but still really needs a weber and the radiator checked out before it can be a legit driver. After I graduate in December there will be some big changes as I will start my job as a mechanical engineer and be making enough money to do what I really want to.

Completed my set of Cressida steelies via ra20sd! Painted navy blue. Weren't as dark as I wanted but when I powder coat them they will be. The chrome trim rings I took off of a 53 chevy in "the storage building"(thanks pops!) :mrgreen: Had to roll the front and rear wheel arches and pull the fronts out to clear. Ordered some portawalls to see how they look. more pics soon
