I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of the headlights, but it doesn't ruin the whole car for me. If I bought one, I'd probably be looking for a headlight mod that made it look better.

Normally you guys would be throwing off on things like that, and you would be this time if it was on anything besides the "almighty" Corvette. So they could stick an aluminum duel stack wing on there, and that would be ok too ?

You need to quit spending so much time looking through those ricer mags! BTW, I have those tail lights on my F-250 They were on there when I bought it and I kinda like them now that the shock has wore off. I'm also thinking about furring out the hood and putting a wing on the cab!

lights like that are ricey when the actually are non-projector lights that are supposed to look like they are projectors. ricers try to copy the good shit without paying for it. My car has projector headlights and i'll never have another one that doesnt. they are THAT much better. Kinda like the time I fucked shakira on my boat in the keys, it makes all other women seem dull and un-important.

GMR, I hated the wing on that car, as well as on the Superbird Plymouth cars, but I guess if they are for function, then they are "ok" .

Yeah I know what you mean. Im no fan of wings on cars, but if its for a reason. Why not. Like the 94-04 Mustangs, I think they look better without the little spoiler on the rear deck.

Looks O.K. I am questioning the two vents. First the intake is very small and second the side scoop for the brakes just does not look like it fits in. But who can argue with 3,000 Lbs and 500 Hp?

Of course now all you need is a 200+lb white woman with a sizable poof of hair to drive it.
