Yeah. I really don't like the wheels. Probably look for some OEM wheels, keep it stock. It's blast to drive and the convertible top makes driving fun too.

Just want what I paid for them....$100....I bought them for the Cabrio but I dont want to go that way anymore.  I was going to paint them black or dark brown to go with the car....They are 14s and will need some cleanup/polishing

This picture is from February when I was driving through Macon 3 or my 4 lugs came off on one tire. Pretty scary situation! Shocked

Also replaced a pesky radiator hose, the one to the oil cooler. The amount of clearance there is very small!

Valve cover gasket was leaking so I upgraded it to one of the single piece rubber ones. While doing that me and John at Bugs4Christ painted the valve cover and belt cover.

Also replaced the old air filter today.

The replacement was a K&N filter! The difference between the K&N and the stock is a major difference!
