Yes, the car previously belonged to Mr. Mathews.

The car is undergoing some serious alterations though, as you can tell.

I don't really like to show it off much now, until I change a bunch of stuff, and make it more "mine".

Understood.
I guess you're keeping the Leda Coilovers?
What's going on w/ Simon these days?
I remember the first time I saw that car VERY well.
(Despite a slight Buzzzz....
)

Simon's good man. He still wanders around on the boards. (Maybe he'll chime in)

He still has his Murker race car, and he's got something else that he's currently working on, however I can't spill the beans on it yet.

He was talking about maybe attending JetFest. I'll give him a call today and see if he's going to make it.

are those 35 series tires? they look like rubber bands!
eh, 35series really isn't that bad, i have em on my daily driver with 18s and a pro-kit drop...not ONE flat and not ONE bend in 3years...

rides smoother than most 17s with a 2inch drop

sick brakes, jealous like whoa

Clean the rims you lazy ass. Atleast I have SVTs now to keep up. I'm powdercoating the calipers the same color.
