    I've tried taking pictures of Dark Chinstrap or Dark Tote bag, but either the ground is shaking so much from all the bass or it is hiding behind the growth on it's hood. ;)

    So you bought it from Mark? Get it on a lift I want pics of that rear suspension, and you need to bring that thing to Circleville for AutoX next summer.

    Dif specs in the back? I imagine with an aggressive dif that would be a drift monster.

    One benefit to all your chrome being blacked out is that it is keeping the chrome underneath pristine. :D

    Didn't one of your cars have a set of chrome lip wheels at one point? It is hard for me to keep track of all of them :)

    There was a Fox body AutoX monster at the Miata event last weekend and it had me thinking that might be a fun project since Fox bodies are pretty cheep and easy to modify.

    Fox Mustangs are easy to mod. Like a MINI all the good mods are well known & parts are easily available. No need to reinvent the wheel, do a bit of research & mod away. :)

    I wish I could find a picture of the car from the AutoX the rear tires were practically touching each other in the back. I didn't understand why till someone explained the lack of camber for a live axel car.
