Lies Mack, those wheels are way too new.

Mean-Another interesting choice if you're looking in that range and want something scarce-ish would be an Evo IX. I love them.

Yeah right Mack, we all know the wheel hadn't even been invented yet. We all know you actually rocked one of these:

Yup. I had a set of these on my 69 firebird. Wide as heck in the back and small in the front. Had to use air shocks to keep the fenders from rubbing on the tires. LOL.

There are a lot of people from your generation that say "I had a set of airshocks on my ________." My dad broke the shock mounts on his '70 Chevelle with airshocks.

My dad still has his 78 z28 in his garage. It hasn't been driven in years. I want him to get a job again (he's been laid off 3 years now) so he can save up money to restore it once he properly retires. Otherwise I'll have to do it for him. He still loves that car.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

Sounds like mine, my dad passed it down to me when I turned 18 (after I had painted it for him), now its just sat due to another car im building ('81 Celica GT). I really hope to get a new set of floor pans and interior soonish so that I can get her back on the road.

I miss my Z-28... My wife has been wearing it on her ring finger since we got engaged...

I did a ton of work on that car. Huge cam, dual holly 650's high rise intake, (air cleaner stuck out the hood lol. ) Turbo 400 tranny with shift kit, stall converters. You couldn't take off without burning rubber. It got about 4 mpg. Hence the need for the yellow 78. I drove that when I was just goofing off, as it had a regular holly 350 carb and got about 17 mpg. 

The lowrider was my real toy though, I'll never forget my parents faces when they walked out to the driveway and I was cutting the top off with a saw... Lol. 

First convertible lowrider in NC... We had a blast in that truck. Course it was so low that I couldn't drive over a can on its side without hitting it... I won a bunch of car stereo competitions with that thing. Rockford pro 15's built into the bed with a walk through to the cab, I had a TV and VCR in it (For all you young pups, VCRs are like DVD's except you have to fast forward on tape to get to the good parts...) Bass hit so hard it would flip quarters off the roof. I could pull up to a light and shake the mirrors of the cars AROUND me. lol. Loved that thing. It was really obnoxious, but we took it to freestyle contests all over the country. 

Here it is after I hit a bear in PA and repainted it in my driveway. 






They tremble at my name...
