Default Old man's DD hatch with NSX wheels

With soaring gas prices, I decided to buy a good gas car. Like every car in my life, I can't leave anything stock. So @ 34 years old I called up a good buddy I've known for years to help me out, Adam from Weaksauce. I picked up a few things here and there from H-T members...heres a few pics (I'm no photographer). I'm partners in a bodyshop here in the Austin area so eventually, we'll go over the bodywork and paint on this car when we have time (probably never). I've got SIR bumpers sitting upstairs storage @ our shop waiting to get painted as well.... NEW PICS OF HATCH UPLOADED ON PAGE 2

16" NSX (four fronts) I had to locate some hubcentric rings to make them work....






some of the work we do

some of my weekend toys

my 39 chevy



394 whp supercharged Lexus GS400





Turbocharged Silverado



The new look w ctr wheels for daily driving...still got the NSX wheels as well
