AWESOME!

One small issue--unless you have larger, custom wheels, these cars NEED, NEED whitewalls. They just end up looking too much like a truck, almost, with just big, plain blackwalls. Oh yeah, and get rid of those deer horns....

Otherwise, looks IMMACULATE, even more so than mine, since it has a few scrapes on the sides of the front bumper and the driver's seat foam is a tad squashed down.

Here's mine for comparison:

Oh yeah, and you'll have some real FUN keeping that white vinyl top actually to stay WHITE....well, unless it's a rarely used garage queen.

Yeah I dont like the vinyl top. :( Thats my only gripe with that car.
I will use vinyl cleaner and some kind of sealant on it. Hopefully that will help with it. I didnt know those little horn things were removable. LOL! Will do that.
I plan on keeping it covered or in the garage whenever Im not driving it. Hopefully that will keep the top clean. The guy before me garaged it all these years when he want driving it.

I wasnt aware they still made whitewalls these days. Any ideas where I could get some?

I do love the color scheme though. :)

Yep, just keep the top clean and don't let staining things set in long (like bird crap or, in my experiences, stuff from trees). And keeping some kind of a protectant on it will help a lot too--right now we're using Mop N' Glow, as suggested by a few other posters here, and it seems to work better than other things I've used.

As for the tires, you really don't even have to look too hard to find them, as just about every "passenger car" tire you find in the FW's size of 235-70-15 are whitewalls anyway on one side--sure the ones on the car now aren't flipped, black out/white in? We just put new Kumho Touring A/S 795's on ours and love 'em--great tire, especially for this car.

And the deer horns--YES, you can take them off! They should just be attached with little sticky pads underneath, so if you can pull the horn itself off, any remaining glue can most likely be rubbed off with a fingernail or some Goo Gone.

Again, great car!

Definately agree, I got mine this week, put em on, and the ride is much smoother, white walls look great (old tires had dull whitewalls), and handles MUCH better in the rain (seems this winter and they will tell for the snow!)

Told ya! ;) At first, I didn't feel or hear that much of a difference, but the first time I drove in a down pour and didn't slip or spin at all, I knew they were good. Now others who have ridden in the car before and after think it is quieter and feels softer, so I guess it must. Should last a while too, rated at 70k warranty.

Yeah there great, though i think they screwed something, went out today, got a squeaking from my upper left tire when i apply the brakes (mind you it wasnt there till today) so dunno, gonna see what happens!

But those tires are great thanks!!! And they ride great, my old tires, were spinning when I took a tight turn, these stay right on the road!
