    Wow looks to be better than new. Stock+. Color combos right on. Clean and sittin pretty.
    Last call era of true honest car styling really stands out on this one. Tire/rims give a happy personality.
    Has the right stuff!

    Looks nice. Always was a big fan of the 98 Cobra wheels. Had those on my 85 GT T-top many years ago. Wish I hadn't sold that car, but I'm an idiot.
