Photo shoot of my 66

I took the 66 for a little drive on the new rims. They don't rub I just took it on a short trip trying to get more time behind the wheel (2nd time out). Things went pretty smooth compared to the first time out. Didn't stall it on the way up to the park I spun the tires at a stop sign, I let the clutch out to fast and the guy behind me gave me a dirty look, lol.

Anyway, I wanted to play with the wide angle lens, so here ya go. Some with a normal lens as well.

Looks incredible.. Rims/tires look perfect..
So, the only problem is that it is too fast..
I haven't had that problem yet, you are lucky!
That car looks dead straight and black doesn't lie.
Take the car to the corner store or whereever, just get used to the 4 speed and enjoy your new car, awesome!!
You won't have to drive it far before someone will stop you to ask about it, sweet!

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

Long blond hair, sun glasses, and a little dog.

I think the paint shines pretty nice

Thanks guys. The color really looks different depending on light and angle. I like it when it looks like in the pics. With an overcast day it always looks like that. In direct sun it is quite a bit lighter.

Eric, front are 15x7 with 4.5 backspace and tires are 235/60 R15. Rear are 15x8 with 5.5 backspace and tires are 275/60 R15. Of course I think the white lettering really completes the look

I also cleaned out the trunk (as you seen in another thread) that had 3 tires and a bunch of old engine parts. So it helped raise the rear a little.

Yea, you don't want ANYTHING in the trunk that can fly around and dent the quarters from inside when your running through the gears or cornering hard!!
