Hey gang....some of you may know me from Four Eyed Pride. Long time fanatic of the four-eyes, with a '82 GT (13k mile survivor) and a '85 GT (15k mile survivor). Tonight I am bringing home my new baby, a '93 Canary Yellow & Black, 5-spd with just 2,600 on the clock.
She still rides on original rubber, which I want to replace and keep stored for any MCA/Concours Duty. Now...let me state I am for the most part a purist and love my cars bone-stock, but I am not against a tasteful mod here or there. I'm torn on wheels and would welcome opinions and even some pics if you have them:
*The easy choice is a new Chrome 16" Pony Wheel & Tire kit from Late Model Restoration, and remain stock.
*An enticing choice is the upgraded 17" version of above, for a more modern low profile look.
*An an even further enticing choice is a 17" black wheel with machined lip from American Muscle....this is also ~$450 less.
These if you are not familiar....http://www.americanmuscle.com/blackwithmachinedlipponystyle-17x8-8793-sumitomohtrzii-stan.html
. No pony emblems so I would have to source those.
That last option is very enticing as I think the black would look great in contrast with the top/interior. But it would be an obvious mod from stock. Decisions decisions.....
I'm in no hurry and probably won't do anything until this winter for next season. This year I think I'll just leave it as is and enjoy it at local shows and cruise-ins.
