Have a look at what this guy is selling. I noticed he mixed in some pics of the original car with his.

I think this is the "Kruse auction" car shown in the replica cars section of the site..... If i remember correctly the blower case is attached to the top of the bonnet!?

Agreed.. If it were mine, I'd want to spend some money getting it a bit righter..

Before it went Wronger again, that is... ;)
(I'd still want to do the thing as it was described in the movie - DOHC & all, update the suspension and make the wheels the same diameter all the way around.)

Subtly different in appearance.. but a better Cop Car.

No 20's with rubber bands.. I'm thinking of something around 275/50-16 out back and 225 or 235-60-16 in front.
On a NASCAR-style D-Slot alloy anodized matte black.

The 15" wheels in back and 14's in front always bugged me.

Particularly after I ran like that for a bit in my Javelin.. (255/60-15's in back and 225/70-14's up front.)
Beastie plowed like a drunken Arkansas Farmer with the 14's on the front.

Swapped a set of 215/65-15 onto the front and it made a world of difference.

I don't like the "Bling Bling" wheel look at all, but an inch or two larger diameter rim & slightly lower profile tire still looks good and makes a very noticeable difference.
(Plus if you go too low profile on the tires, first bump or pothole and your rim's F**ked.)
