About “Project: Aaroncoupe”
This car is pretty much stock besides the override of the smog system and the computer system
In my street racing days, I beat a lot of cars in this Monte. All of them were before the rebuild with a 150,000 mile motor, haha. to list a few
-2003 Dodge Ram 5.7 Hemi
-lots of rice grinders
My only loss thus far was against a 1996 trans am. It was a buddy of mine, I knew I didn't have a chance but raced anyway to see what I had, and got embarrased haha. It has a lot of poop for a 305, can't imagine how an LS1 would do in her :D
What's to say? Fairly high miles (88k as of 01/2007) for its age, but apart from the front bumper being in need of a respray and the wheels showing signs of age/slight kerbing hasn't fared too badly.
Would benefit greatly from actually having some power. Nice enough to drive, handles competently, just woefully underpowered.

Mods for “Slow-cus”
Nothing exciting (so far) - variable intermittent wiper stalk, map lights, swapped ashtray for felt-lined storage tray (surprisingly useful!). Also added steering column stereo controls and a Puma gearknob - the first is very handy, the second just looks and feels nice. Woo!
Would like 16" Zetec wheels (similar design, but biggerer+nicerer) and -30mm suspension drop. A lot of money for no real gain, better just to buy a faster car...
