Yup, might put a 215 in my TR6

Hey john, what was the color code for that vette? From what I read up I think it's gw. If u want, could u post another pic of it? I'm thinkin that might look cool on my falcon, I'm always changing my mind. Lol. And was it single stage or 2 stage, probably 2 because of the flames? And which do you prefer?

thanks alex,
 i may try to get some additional pics of them and post. i've had the monza since '89 paid $235.00 with a blown (up) motor, i've probably put 20k in to it total, everything is chrome, polished stainless or polished brass. swaybars,springs,tank straps all chromed. i have a wall full of trophies for that car, two are over 5' feet tall, another is one that is special to me is my 2nd place in the '93 portland roadster show(invitational only show-- took 4 years just to get accepted) won a couple with the courier back in the day, and about a dozen with the vette (most were all corvette shows) and a best paint trophy!!(it was chosen by the local fire dept.--- i think it was the flames that turned their decision  Wink)

 bryan, i was cleaning out the paint booth today getting ready to paint the bro's f150 bed in a few minutes, but anyways i'll look and see if the can of paint (vette) says a lettered code but it does have the mixing code which will give you an exact color match! i'll let you know. oh btw it is base/clear 2 stage ppg (omni)

if you mean the KW my boss is paying for that. if you mean the f150, probably a couple grand. when i get the roadhammer back i'll have to get a pic of the inside, i think you'll like the shifter!

i'll snap a pic of the celica tomorrow, keep in mind it's a dailey driver and a work in progress.  as far as my 70 c10 chev p/u--- have you seen street outlaws on discovery channel? it is the exact year and color of "the farm truck" minus the crappy canopy.

update on the celica: been working on it a little here and there as time allows.

(second) new windshield installed
new custom aluminum radiator
custom side marker lights installed
new urethane rear suspension bushings installed
upgraded intake system almost ready to go on (waiting on the 40mm DCOE carb to arrive)
body work ongoing...
probably order custom billet 17" wheels from centerline, tomorrow?

Dude you have some pretty cool stuff, I love how there is NO discrimination for you about any of your vehicles. 
Car - truck
Import - domestic
V8 - anything else
polished and pretty - not so much but still a blast to drive

You my friend are the definition of a true "Car Enthusiast"
