One of her first Mod's (No the Take 5's are not for sale)


Her first GTG


Closer to what she looks like now across the mighty Mississippi from what was the Lower 9th Ward prior to the Beast Katrina.





How the Hemi's and Mustang's see her:



3 years worth to come.

Wow ..... I have not been around in a while, Dub still on blocks, no time and I have to drive a PT Cruiser instead of a super sneaky Dub.

NOLA ... See Cori's answer
Cori ... How are you ... It has been a while XoXoXo. Thanks for coming to NOLA for the rebuild.
Jacob ... I was the First and the Last, was hoping they'd let me drive it up there!
Downtown ... Have stock 23mm front, handles great after installing springs and Konis and setting rear bar to second to weakest setting, before springs and konis and at a tighter setting it would get into trouble. Hope that helps and sorry for the late reply.

A friend of mine says the Cruiser reminds her of a hearse so that's what I think every time I see one. :p Darin, does yours have the wood paneling? I think of National Lampoon when I see one with the wood. :D

Here is my sig for my new account on the rebuilt eclubvw site ... I used to spend as much time there as here. I don't think I have added the PT to my F150 forum sig. It explains things a little.
