    This is a photo of my 68' IH 908 when I bought it. Since then I have put on factory 15x7 chrome IH wheels with 255/70/15 tires on it, and took off those awful mudflaps. It is in storage right now so I can't get a better photo. I hope to get to work on this after the Buick gets done. Last summer I put 5000 miles driving it to work (I got 14mpg). I also have a 92 rusty nissan sentra(35mpg work car) and 99 chevy Z-71 (boat puller), but they aren't worth taking photos of.

    Just updating my other cars... got a job an hour and a half away from home making decent money and decided that I should probably get a new car... got rid of the Honda and became a REAL ricer... but at least its sorta quick. Just to quell the questions, the reason I got this over the equally quick Cobra is RWD vs. AWD... I drive a bit too much in poor weather and end up stuck in pretty bad snow storms that I certainly wouldn't have gotten out of in a RWD, 390hp/ftlb car.



    And it does pretty well in the snow...

    Hey Eric,

    Glad to hear your working good! Good choice for a daily driver. I'd take a WRX in a second!

    Heh, thanks guys. No change in the Buick yet and unfortunately its still together, however, I will be moving to a job a bit closer with a bit more set hours and will be finishing school in a month, so that means more time to work on the 'Ick. :D

    For people who might not know what my car is... its a 2004 Subaru WRX STi ..

    300hp, 300ft/lbs.

    Subaru says the quarter is in approx 13.3, but independents running in cool weather are reporting 13.1 or 13.0... 100% stock :D
