    I was finally able to buy my dream car, 1997 GTS B/W basically stock with just under 29000 miles. I am the third owner. The second owner put less than 500 miles while he owned it for almost 10 years. As a result, I have have a few issues to deal with. First was the get some new wheels and tires. Other issues I currently know of are:
    • Oil leak at oil cooler
    • Radiator leak
    • (2) A/C lines leak
    None of these have kept me from putting about 2000 miles on it since I bought it at the end of June. I look forward to learning from everyone here how to maintain this car and just enjoy driving it. 9BA20101-ABCF-4D78-8D6F-BAB9E82E9540.jpeg 1A9077DA-21C6-4271-8757-B3BA5E588A55.jpeg BE58F0C9-8327-4AA4-A508-8E7890F6CF13.jpeg F69ED1C5-5FB3-4471-81A3-934FFF02FE3C.jpeg 7A48B567-D288-4205-A115-3061BD0E2A36.jpeg

    They are Forgestar’s. I got them from Tony at DV8 Motoring. It took about a month to get them once I ordered them due the a a availability of cores and powder coating. Cost was much more reasonable compared to other options. The wheels are very high quality and reasonably light weight. I have used them on my Dodge Challenger Hellcat and been happy with them.

    Just put some Forgestar's on too. Really like them. Tony at DV8 was very helpful.
