Time to come clean / spill the beans

This is the place to kick a few tires, drink a few beers, and tell a few tales.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

The winter wheels will be the factory Pontiac Rally wheels that came on the Grand Prix.

Great job of turning someone else's failure into something pretty cool. I like it. Of course the wheels are not your first choice but they are paid for and I get that. I know you will continue to refine this. What most people don't get is that you are not looking at a $500 a month car payment, plus ridiculous insurance premiums. Everything you have done increased the value of the car. I hope the job situation improves but in the mean time you are accomplishing a lot.

The Budmobile lives!!!

Looks good, IMO.

Except for those wheels......gaaaah.....why would you have EVER spent money on those.....heaven forbid you ever put them on the Hero!!!! :poke:
Listen.....if you were even remotely involved with cars back in the 80s and 90s you would know that those wheels were THE CAT'S ASS back in 1991 when I bought them. The fact that the tires are like new now and I have no money to spend is more than justification. Add in that they also nail the stance is something that even you could learn from.

So there,....... :hand:
As soon as I saw those wheels I thought heck yeah 90s throwback! They actually do not look too bad on that wagon!

Thanks for the positive comments. Anyone who ever attended a NSRA or a Goodguys event in the 90s will understand my previous comments on the wheels. They spawned an entire industry and multiple large companies during that era.

As long as you don't drive around in your multi-colored parachute pants it should be OK. :whistle:
