that front end nods thanks to the fox body, the body lines are sharp and clean, and the power is just insane for a factory produced car. going into production? that is the 04 show i guess with the old body style

I was never one for the fr500 rims, or that bumper.

But that is very nice. I like the numbers! That is what usually matters most to me.

It looks a little bare on the back without at least a factory wing or something though.....

Needs more of an aggressive look in my opinion. Great numbers, but the body could be nicer. Too plain for my taste. A stock body is by no comparison than that body style in my opinion.

it seems like it might obstruct airflow with the hood. what i dont get is it is a "heat extractor" v6 hood from 01-04, but the front end is closed up from where heat should go in...

styling is plain, but fast- kind of like luxury ownage (cadillac cts- northstar v8)
