    Default Dereck's 92 Town Car With Turbines!

    Hi Guys

    I have finally fitted my "new" Turbine wheels to the old Townie and I must say the ride is smoother, the handling more precise, the steering lighter, there is no road noise and my gas milage has increased more then by fitting a Turbonator

    Now if I do not get nominated for Panther of the Month and subsequently win Panther of the Month I am issuing a fatwa against GMN

    Apologies for the poor picture quality but the glare coming from the Autobalm shine was reeking havoc with my camera's CCD

    That car is clean and smooth, very nice. Needs a window tint and duals, but besides that it's perfect as is.

    It's got duals you dummy! Just cause it has duals, doesn't mean they have to be poking out!

    Lookin' great, mang!! Those wheels really set it off, and look like they were meant to be like that!!

    Hi Guys

    Many people have asked about the licence plates, I had them made using my U.K licence number because I am a sad boy living in the U.K wishing he was living stateside and Arizona is top of the places I would want to be.

    definately tint the windows...not sure about the laws there but darken them down...Any car looks so much better with tint IMO.

    But it looks sweet

    Tom it was necessary to be rude like that, you could just say "it already has duals they're just not visible unless you're under the car". The insults should be kept in the battlefield.

    Also i'd like to know if the engine looks as clean as the body does.

    Ooooo that looks nice, granted it's always been nice but those wheels really set if off.

    That is far too much awesome to behold. Your car pulls those turbines off sooooo well.
