I would scan the title to prove it but i don't wanna give away that much info

I am waiting till spring to get it repainted red. What do you think would look good I havn't seen many eclipses like this w/ the black roof

Something like that would be a great everyday driver for me. Anything would be better then the beater I have now. Wish I could find a deal like that.

well when I got the car the motor had jumped the timming belt and stuck a valve into the side of the cylinder I have heard aboiut people bending the valves there were not any valves left in the car there was a mouse nest in the glove box in and un the spare tire but they didn't chew the seats at all the interior is spotless the side skirts were falling off the car was covered in some film I took some wax and a buffer to it and the color came back so far I have put a new fuel pump on it casue it was stored with a half tank of gas. both axles I threw the egr away put a header on it cause the exhaust manifold was cracked chopped the hell out of the air box put a k&n in it I got a greddy e-manage on the way and I am looking to put a body kit on it and I want a diffrent set of rims to run during the summer,

Would a carbon fiber hood look ok with the black roof line?
Do you think white rims would look ok?
I want to put a neo drift kit on it from http://www.asylumms.com/

What you think??

What you think?? I think the CF hood would look good.......The white wheels.....UHMM, I dont know. My choice would not be white. Maybe gunmetal or just plain silver, but not white.

if your going c/f hood with the black roof, ive always wanted flat black rims. but thats just because my cars flourescent blue. but maybe c/f hood black roof and flat black rims would look good? yea definatly not white with red and black. gunmetal is also a good idea.

Yea, with a cf hood I would get black rims. You don't want to many colors on your car cause then it starts to look ugly IMHO.

It's still a great deal even with your new pet rats included.:D
