here's a more recent pic from yesterday:
haha - yeah I know i should have kept the hardtops, try t o post some youtube vids of your exhaust.

Yea it was my first time there so I parked on the other side next to an LSB coupe. Then as I was leaving I seen your car and was so amazed I backed up in the middle of the road just to take a second look

Very beautiful car. It looks extremely clean!
