U know... I've never thought of my interior color that way until I re-did my dash... the lighter colors do look classy, huh? lol & i'm hardcore about keepin them clean!

Yup, that's my crazy friends... well just a few of them... normally we fill up a parkin lot w/ lowered cars, minitrucks, a few jacked up trucks & a few muscle cars...we're pretty awesome, if i do say so myself! The guy w/ the maroon dime also has a camaro SS & a 00 cav z24 on airride, oh how i hate him so. hahaha, but he's my best friend so... i at least get to ride in those vehicles... ive drove his SS tho, fastest thing ive ever drove! LOL

And I PROMISE i'm gonna get those pix on here soon... might be wed. but it'll b soon...LOL, i didnt take those w/ my phone, so they're better quality, well worth the wait...or so i hope...:)

hahaha, i dont think i could cut mine...id rub my tires all over the place :lol:
im running on ss/tc struts and shocks, h&r sport springs, and 225/45/17 tires and i have less then a 1 finger gap already, thats why i was trying to figure out how she got 4inches...thats pretty low, must be running a significantly smaller tire by looking at the pics...

hahahaha... nah, better not, LOL... yeah, i have 205/40/17 tires, and im tuckin in the rear & have a finger gap the size of my finger in the front, that's y im thinkin i need to go lower, i want to tuck all around... but im hardcore on the being low thing, my car drags on a normal basis...lol, well usually my muffler does, flat-spotted it a few times. haha...
And on cuttin the rear, i have no idea...some1 else asked me that & i just cant answer it... one of my friends came & picked my car up & brought it back slammed....i knew he was gonna do it, i asked him to. so, he told me about the rear & how it was diff & stuff, but i cant remember exactly how he put it. My car was the 2nd cobalt he did, so i trusted him...

thanks! Yeah i love sunset pix w/ my paint! BFM FTW!

That's what is is all right!

Seriously,, it IS a cake carrier. It's how you transport a cake to protect it and to of course, keep it clean.
