Figure I'll toss my SHO back in again.

Ok every one, this is my 1996 SHO.

Here is a Exhaust clip for those who love the V8 sound.

And here is a vid of her with the local car club. Over 1400 members strong.

Love my car had her for almost a year now. And enjoy driving her everyday. The car guys in my area have accepted her as well. We all get along really well. You can see her in her natural habitat.

She is not perfect but love her anyways. I have done a few mods to her,

Some speaker changes.

Engine bay painting.

Some porting while doing the painting

Of course she has welded cams.

All in all she is a great car. Love her and how she is and acts. Here is some more pics for your enjoyment. The first pic on this post is my voting pic please.

Anyways hope you enjoy her. As you all know I do.
