    Finally got the welding done and suspension in!!! I like the look of the rake with the moog springs i got on there.

    These wheels and tires are temporary until i figure out what we are putting on there

    Neat. You could always go with a set of t type wheels. You might get lucky and find a fool who thinks he just has "80s vector rims" and get em cheap. There's a guy near me who has 3 that are on a truck (actual t type wheels, conical lug seats, lip around the cap opening, etc) for a $100. I asked him if he'd take less since the tires are junk truck tires, there's only 3, and no center caps, he said no. So I went one state over and bought a full set with the original caps, and probably the original or 2nd set of tires that were ever on them for $300 lol.

    I do think the best factory wheels on Regals are the T Type/Turbo T Wheels. GNX wheels a close second. Don't like the GN or the 85 down T Type wheels so much.

    it's really looking great so far! maybe one of these days, if the DD project and the GP will co-operate, I'll be able to get back on my Regal...
    on a medium to light car like yours, I think these would really look great, if you're trying to stay close to stock looking...
