FWIT I measured both cars, the height from ground to top rim of fender is 27" on 71 vs. 31.5" on the 72. Need to drop by 4", or simply remove the shackles that the PO installed to get much larger wheels.

They look pretty darn good to me! Not sure which one I like better. Trans Am is awesome, but I really like the look of the early formulas too. Best of both worlds.

Your neighbors must love all the money you save them by not having to drive to attend a car show.  They just walk over.

Good lookin' rides Jack.

If I'm forced to pick a favorite, its gotta be your Formula.  Love those Snorkel Hood Scoops.  :cool:
