In my opinion, oldschool rides deserve oldschool wheels. Or at least wheels that look like oldschool. With the introduction of cheap knock-off wheels the last few years, alloy wheels have become a huge debate within the car communities. Some are ok with buying knock-offs, probably for different reasons like available sizes and especially the price, while others frown upon them.

I’m changing the layout again. Was never completely happy with the design of the previous one, especially the variable width. Using fixed width this time, and far smaller featured images, to hopefully make the website a smoother experience. Please bear with me as I sort it out.

A few more pics of the P11. The OEM GT wing is generally too heavy for the bootlid dampers. This makes the bootlid slam too hard when you close it, and the wing vibrates, cracking the paint. Add a few years of use, some rain and road salt during winter – and you get rust.. The rust will be dealt with, all the holes welded up, and the wing replaced by something a little more subtle.
