    Body shop for Paint Recommendation?

    Ahhh the old body shop jail. Went threw that twice for my 427 Cobra. I know a few shops up here in northern mass/NH that do awesome work. I did restorations for a while back in the 70s/80s. NO $$$ in it.. Ins work is where ya make the $$$ and a lot less aggravation.

    Turbo Regal Reign comming to an end?

    X2... Drivers and good tuners ! Not just for the engine. The whole car. You can have the 1000hp cars that can't get outta their own way. Good for smoke shows at the car shows. :cool:

    Biggest tire on a 15 x 10 4 inch backspacing

    Not that big. you have air bags ?? 10" rims really make a 275/60/15 huge. Had a friend that ran radial T/As on them . They did stick out some. I am sure others will chime in as far as tire sizes. Good Luck

    GS Nationals!

    I dont know about 275s. For a stock car I'd go with the 255s. We ran them for years with no problems. Ohhh get AAA+. Cheaper and easier towing a blown up car.
