The Honda is nice as far as rice burners go.

The GodFathers look good on the Imp. but wow that Imp got hurt on the back quarter didn't it? Ouch. It's a good street, pimp ride. I'm surprised it's not tinted. I'd do it.

Might want to spray something on those rust spots, they're already serious and of course it's just going to get worse right before your eyes. I'd hate to see that.

I know that big ouch but I bought it like that also I keep it in the garage. I'm just low on cash at the moment. I have had the car since 04 I have the driver fender I got off e-bay just have to put it on. I just need some help with the rest of the body work I need some help fabricating a sail panel every one I run across is rusted out too. As far as tint soon real soon. I also want to paint it a root beer metallic. Thanks for the good comment's.

Buy some CRC cold zinc galvanizing paint ( http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/(aa...SKU=1000000945 ) as it will stop all rust cold in it's tracks and protect what is left for several years.

I found a 71 in the junk yard to get the tail light rear area from but the sail panel is rusted out as all the other sail panels are as rusted or more than mine.

I like the 71! My first car at 16 was a gold '71 4 door 350 2 bbl with a black vinyl top. I flipped the pan so it sounded like a 4 bbl. Man, the memories.
