Hey Artie.... those SSRs look too big for your NA.. I think it would be best if you sold them to me.

LOL. Yes, those are 17's in that first pic. Those were replaced with 15's. Yoram bought my 17 and 16 inch SSR's. Now I'm just left with the 15's. Contact him. I'm not sure if he's using them on his lotuses or not.

I'll admit, I've always had a soft spot for some combos...

White w/green stripes..



and there is a local guy with a older Viper GTS that is red with charcoal stripes that looks b-a.

Yeah, was a sad sight in my driveway too. V8 is the current plan, it'll probably be a little bit before it happens though.

I'd like to see that. Red with black looks like crap on a Miata (IMO), red with white is bland, I like the red with silver, but not sure how it would look with black wheels. Dark grey/charcoal stripes might do the trick, however.

Don't mind the ill-fitting hood. I was talking to the owner at Road Atlanta and he said it's had something to do with the aftermarket carbon piece that was made for him. Personally, that wouldn't fly with me... but the car is far from stock and would put a complete asswalking on anything on this forum..and he was a cool guy.

Hood risers? Just kidding. Thanks for the pic.

That is sick, and those colors work well on that car. Maybe I'll try changing the wheel color to black to see how that looks.

Mike, it's really bad that you found those pictures before I did, I took those shots and couldn't find the folder they were in.

I like revlimiter's stripes (skinny-fat-skinny centered), and also dig the offset skinny-fat stripes.

This is the main thing I worry about when I consider stripes.

I already get too much attention from the 5-0, and am trying to tone down my car. Just put on a 22" magnaflow instead of my 14" dynomax to try and be less ricer.

Stripes do scream "yes I was misbehaving"

I think it's cute you all have the exact same stripes! Now you need matching helmets plus MT "turbo's and kitties are awesome" tshirts for the next track day.

Of course I get to mock you guys all dressing your cars up the same. You get to mock my pathetic lack of HP and fabrication skills.

Actually, we should just probably all get rainbow stripes. Like that Camaro show car.
