Welcome! Love those wheels and color. Very unique for a base model.

Eibach springs are a really good mod for base models because of the bigger wheel gap in the rear. I installed on mine and it really transforms the look of the car.

Enjoy.

+1 on all that except if I did springs on a base car I'd go one step further to H&R's. Drops it another .25" which is all good since the gap on the base car is quiet large.

Blue is my favorite color and could not focate one when I was looking. Great find! Looks like you may be able to enjoy year round.
Hove you walked out to the garage just to look at it yet today?

I'm in N Houston - photo was actually taken south of Katy. But it does look like Dallas area!

50 year dream? I never had that much patience! Got my first at age 19.
