It's louvered, bagged, has a turbo lsx motor, and it's a CONTINENTAL. Hope y'all ENJOY.

LOL, poor mods poorly done. Such a shame, it's a very elegant car.

This reminds me that I've been getting comments these days from kids to lower my car. When I told them it already is, they sneer me for leaving a finger gap between the wheel and the fender... sml...

i'm just saying, if you're going to spend thousands butchering modding an old car, why not do it the right way instead of destroying a piece of our past because you're too lazy and cheap?

LOL Raf, you simply won't find many Stanceworks fans here, unless Stanc3 Chad shows up, or possibly Daron.

It's not even about that. I'm just a little shocked no one else can appreciate the good parts in that car. While I agree the paint could and should be better; and a proper detail would have been nice. IMO it's still a very cool car made better by the mods.

As a side note the person who posted the photos works at hales speed shop. They were probably just taking a quick impromptu photoshoot. I don't know the extent of their involvement in this paticular project.

i don't mind lowering it, even the louvers, but would you stick a twin turbo vette engine in it. would you do it to a classic rolls royce? that was a luxary car back in the day. I ono, just my opinion, that's what makes our hobby/obsession is that people can express themselves however they want even if they're wrong

I judge by what I see, not by what the maker's intentions are.
