I see, and no problem, Michael.  I hope to have new rubber by the autocross season opener March 7th, so you should have them by the end of February if you want them.

   Speaking of which, the season points totals have been tallied.  It's been a weird year, but if you had only attended 2 more events you would have been in the trophies!  Heck if you had run 3 more you would have probably been in the top 3 in class!

Stuart,

I may be going out on a limb but do you still have this NOS badging?  I am looking for the Iris Blue NEON emblem for the Trunk lid and the Iris Blue Plymouth hood emblem.  I am working on restoring a 1995 NYG Plymouth ACR and those have been 'problemmatic' in locating.

tomorrow is fun car friday, Saturday is a cruise night. 

Since I woke up at 5ish,  figured it was a good chance to get this all cleaned up again from where ive put another 500 miles on it. And left it under the carport for a couple weeks.

Leave it to me and my TR3 to make your Neon look huge! Must be an optical illusion... the Neon looks bigger than that Malibu too!

Wow! It DOES look huge! Think you're right. Has to be something funny with the angle....

Why do I feel the need to drive this again.  I loved how it came alive at 5k when most American V8s are running out of steam.

the k1s and free five year old dunops are on.

Test drive confirmed that these are both faster in acceleration (shorter tires) and stick like glue (i may have three wheeled it around a couple roundabouts on the test drive)

Still like the white rotas better visually. 

With the newfound grip os newfound noise from somewhere. But only at max lateral load, so i not sure how to go about hunting it....
