LOWERING ?

what ... ???

u don't like the raised look ... its all they talk about in the new import mags ... :D :D :D

i dunno yet ... few options ... what do y'all think ... i don't need it slammed to the ground ... just enough to half the gap there is now ... which is about 4 fingers ... plus ... my wheels are 17x7.5 ... pretty fat ... and i don't want any rubbing ...

a) konis and eibachs
b) konis and h&r
c) ground controls

WOW, its amazing what rims do for a car. Look totally different. I say go with the GC's/Koni setup. You can adjust to offset the uneven look (higher on one side) you normally get with HR's or Eibachs.

thanks

thanks for the comments and suggestions ...

the rims do change the car a lot ... the hyperblack look was exactly what i was looking for ... a cross between silver and chrome ...

i'm still not decided as to which way to go to lower the ride ... i'll have to look at all the examples on this site again ...

more to come soon ... i may have a big surprise coming this weekend ... pics to come ... ;)

Hey Man.... sweet lookin coupe!:)

I am jealous of those rims and the body looks mint..... shiny anyways.

What color are you going to paint it..... ?

I wish I had a dark legend again...... wait a minute..... they dont stay clean so I will stick with the light colors for now.

Anyways, I will know its you next time I am cruzin through Edmonton and happen to pass by your ride.

funny

its so odd that the pics make my coupe's body look mint ... in reality ... there are many cosmetic scars on it ... dents, dings, deep scratches, and rust on the rear wheel wells ...

but not to worry ... i'll have that taken care off within the next 2-3 weeks ... body work and paint job scheduled ... and i will keep it the same color ... and i should get my clear corners and clear bumpers put on then as well ...

mckenzie93 ... be sure to say hi ... i have a few friends with legends here ... one with a dark grey coupe, and tow with sedans ... and they're all gonna be hooked up this summer ... maybe we should have the first ever ALBERTA LEGENDS MEET ... ****nn ... forget maybe ... lets set it up ... i'm gonna go out of my way to get a hold of the other legends i see around town ... there are at least 5 more that i've seen ... and we'll all meet up ...

PIMPIN'

That sounds awesome man!

I think there are a few members here in Calgary as well so maybe we could get ahold of them as well. I dont know about Edmonton, but really close to my house is Race City Speedway. Maybe we could meet up there and represent the legend at the track. I went twice last year and so many people were creamin' on my sedan. 2 people offered me money to buy it (should have sold it). But I was the only legend there. There was a pack of about 15 new Celicas there that were defenitaly from a meet because there were Celicas from Saskatchewan and BC there.... and at the end of the night they were all snappin pics and stuff.,.

That would be fun...;)

By the way are you going to buy that 1995 Coupe in Edmonton?

That would be a sweet car man..... only 58000km, pearl white on black leather, one owner. I am trying to convince a friend to buy it. I think the guy is asking too much though....but If I had the dough, I would consider buying and trading for my 6speed.

:cool:

nah uh

no ... i'm not buying that coupe in edmonton ... that was the same one for sale a few months back in bc ... the guy bought it for $21k+ and thought that he could make a lot bringing it to alberta ... good luck ... $28k for that is insane ...

i found someone with the identical coupe ... with 56k ... even less clicks ... and no accidents ... i'm flying out of town this morning to view the coupe later this afternoon or tomorrow ...

i'll let you know what happens ... cross your fingers ... if all goes well ... there will be 2 legend coupes in the family ... my girl is selling her 95 accord ex-r v6 w/ 141,000km so we can get it ...

if all goes well ... it'll be fun deciding which one to drive ... :D :D :D
