    Trying to get some more pics, but the rainy weather in florida sux, As soon as the weather clears ill take some more. I have some older pix of my car under (My Photos). But now its has alittle bigger tires in the back and slightly tinited windows. Its my daily driver. There's only one problem it has a 7.6l engine. So 5 to 6 mpg....But I work not even a mile away and everything is super close to me i dont really ever do long distance driving lol so im good.

    lol yea i can see why you don't always miss it, But this car has been my father's for 13 years i wanted since i was a kid, and when it came down to selling it i told my old man i wanted it, and well we reworked everything new engine, new paintjob, new interior,new radio and well new computer too! lol and we did it all in our garage so i wish i could get rid of it. but i love it too much. it's a car im hoping to be running 11''s = 1/4 soon.

    It is kinda low, But i never really look down to change songs, i use media engine so i just let all my songs play, My Girlfriend is the one ushally controlling it, lol. Im a safe person too never been in one accident or speeding ticket. (Knock on wood!). But your right it is alittle low, but from the drivers seat the screens perfect, i can clearly see everything. Im gonna buy a Remote to control the media buttons soon, should help me fix that low level reaching problem. Thanks for the concern!
