    Darn right tough choices. It is hard to seperate the car from the photography. It is but shouldn't be, all in the presentation.

    well the problem with getting new pics of boogie is that she is torn apart and being restored while i am deployed to the middle east

    this is a better shot of her...dont mind the wheel gap...it got fitted for a set of Hi-Lo adjustables while i have been gone so they brought the back end down some to give it a better stance

    Rally, I think ODOT just cut thier budget for snowplows in Cleveland. They just ask that you drive around all day whenever it snows :)
