    No side skirts either. What were you looking to start over with?

    upgrade! car looks pretty clean if you ask me?

    all I can suggest from the pics is polishing your headlights or getting some new ones.

    Yea, its real easy to fix our cars. After about $500 of maintenance stuff I can't really think of how to get my car to run any better than it currently is right now.

    Personally I like the skirts off. I'm saving for a 03 04 cobra. and keeping this car too. I estimate 24k to fix this car in ment condition. The engine I want is 7k so I might as well save for a 03 04 cobra. I want a black one with the fat wheels. I wont change the body on it, but it will have more power.

    To be honest my car is the loudest car I know of in my town. If I rip on it you can hear me, 3 to maybe even 4 blocks away. For this reason I cant exactly get on it at ever stop light, or Cops my think I'm ripping off the line or speeding. The sound at 1k to 3.5k is nice, I wish it was deeper. The exhaust note at 4k + will cream your pants every time. Every now in then when I gear down I get the popping sound that most dont like to hear. Sometimes that sounds very explosive lol. And some times as you slide up the rpms it sounds like a formula one car. Someone mentioned polishing my head lights to clear then out. Please fill me in on how to do this and with what cleaning tools?

    If ur looking for performance, i read that Ford racings cat backs weigh half as much as the competition and actually u gain more h p from Fords setup. SLP is up there it just weighs 16 lbs while fords cat back weighs 8 lbs. This is GT 's of course.

    The pics are too big, could you resize them to around 400X? or 800X?
