My friends always fight about who rides in the back....I had to drive them across campus and they couldn't come to an agreement so they both sat up front...lol

I'm loacted in Bowling Green, Kentucky...we've pretty much had just semi-cold rainy/ sunny warm weather for the past little bit...although I'm due for new tires badly...Dad probably won't let me wait much longer to get them since the old tires are so bad...and he is paying so I'm gonna go ahead and get the lb's put on...

I'm getting tires at Big O...they ordered them...should be here tomorrow and they said they could put them on tomorrow....I think the tires are FALKEN ZE329 if I'm not mistaken....$530 out the door...for the tires, balancing, rotating, installation and a warranty....seems like I got a pretty good deal...I hope they ride well

Wow I didn't know they made the LB's in chrome! Lookin cool duder :cool:

The blacked out windows look rad too... gotta go super dark on a black car.

And to answer your question, yes, there was a Black Betty on here... owned by Sarah in Florida, and yes, she now has a Sundown Orange NB.

Thanks everyone!

I didn't know the longbeaches came in chrome either....I ordered them from ebay in just a regular finish and the seller called me and said he was out of stock on them and they shouldn't have been posted....supposedly it was a program error, and he offered me the chrome ones for the same price because it was going to be a month wait of the regular ones.....

he sells the regular longbeaches for $399 a set and the chrome ones for $640 a set...so i got the chrome ones for about $240 cheaper...i was very very excited

I got falken tires too....best tires I have ever had....Betty feels like a new car and I haven't been so happy with her since when I got her

he also includes the center caps with the rims for free....and they shipped from florida to kentucky in about 3 days

his store

the chrome longbeaches
