    You lucky bahstidge! I'm not a fan of yellow, but it looks way straight! And yes, having the GT wheels is a nice touch.

    Painting the hood flat black would set this thing OFF, like a mother!!!

    And set the value back a few grand too. I like it just as it sits. Looks great!!

    If I were keeping the car for several years, the hood would have a ram air scoop along with the flat black. If I were flipping it, I'd only look at anything to enhance the price for little effort and/or cost.

    Love the car, but just can't love the wheels, even though they are Ford; sorry. That car needs some Torq Thrusts, Salt Flats or Magnum 500's.

    What if, indeed? A SOHC means the sky's the limit
