Shaving the weight any way you can!

Love that powder blue color but I'm not much on rusty look. Owned too many of those when they weren't fashionable at all! :P

Very cool Falcon. 8)

Yes my heart has always been on a track at the edge.
I'm more than a little green every time you post about track time.
Enjoy to the utmost!!!!!

Hey Joe, the tires and wheels in the pics are a set of street tires I got off a buddy that sold his Mustang. They are 205/60- 15 front and 225/60 rears. And yes they are 15X7 Americans. The Hoosier race tires I’m using are 225s on 15X7 wheels for all four.

Thanks, Joe!
I would like to install 225 on rear but too wide, I do believe. Barely fit an 8" under there now.

It’s pretty tight with the 225s out back, I had to flare both sides and I see a little tire rub from cornering.
I considered mini tubs but decided it would be outside the main plan for this car. I’m just having fun and the tires are wide enough to scare hell out of me when need be. :lol:

Thanks Fred! This next track day should be a good one. It’s a Saturday and Sunday affair and its basically unlimited track time Sunday afternoon when everyone goes home.
On late Sunday of the last event there were only a few of us out there hauling ass and having fun.
