To keep it simple, I would just add a couple aftermarket accessories to give it that street look. You could get a set of some little wire wheels ( if you haven't done so already ) & maybe add on of those tounneau covers with subwoofers built into them already. A company by the name of Hoppin Hydros makes one that you just trim to fit. That might be all I would do as a guy that is never satisfied & always trying to do crazy stuff. Give it one of those lil chain steering wheels & a cool paintjob & your done.

Let me know if that helps & the outcome of your new project.
Have fun!!!!!Smile,Wink, & Grin

Go to your local book store and pick up a copy of Lowerider magazine. You should get plenty of ideas.

What color would the flames be Question Ive seen some really cool black muscle cars with green flames as well as ice blue. I guess the interior should be a color that compliments the flame colors. whatcha think?

That's a good idea match up the interior w/ the colour of the flames!
I think i might do that just gotta buy the paint.
BTW do you think i should save the door handles or take em' off??????
