    Hi All. New member from DFW area. I own a 97 GT convertible with 110k miles. Been doing small upgrades to her recently, so still mostly stock. Installed BBK mass air flow housing/sensor. New Steeda Tri-Ax shifter. Installed new headlights/fog lights. Just got finished putting new brakes/rotors on. I am currently working on building up my suspension piece by piece so I only have to pull the wheels off once. New springs are a 1 in drop all the way around. Still want to make a lot of changes. Here is an a photo from about a year ago.

    Oh yep! I'm very familiar with the Keller area.. I actually use to live up there by the new Costco in the apartments right next to it.

    Thanks. I bought it used, great deal on it, couldn't pass it up and needed a car. I will have to take some photos of the interrior. The front leather seats were in pretty bad shape, but all the electrics still work, so I bought some leather seat covers. I also painted the tops of the door panels black to match the line of the dash.

    I bought it used, and it came with chrome on the front and polished aluminum on the rear. I still have not replaced them, but I have swapped them so I have one set on each side. So the drivers side is chrome, and the passenger side is aluminum. I will eventually replace them with all black wheels.
