Yeah. I really don't like the wheels. Probably look for some OEM wheels, keep it stock. It's blast to drive and the convertible top makes driving fun too.

Just want what I paid for them....$100....I bought them for the Cabrio but I dont want to go that way anymore.  I was going to paint them black or dark brown to go with the car....They are 14s and will need some cleanup/polishing

This picture is from February when I was driving through Macon 3 or my 4 lugs came off on one tire. Pretty scary situation! Shocked

Also replaced a pesky radiator hose, the one to the oil cooler. The amount of clearance there is very small!

Valve cover gasket was leaking so I upgraded it to one of the single piece rubber ones. While doing that me and John at Bugs4Christ painted the valve cover and belt cover.

I also purchased a euro plate foe the front to add some class!

Also replaced the old air filter today.

The replacement was a K&N filter! The difference between the K&N and the stock is a major difference!
