...could they?
sure they do. That's what they are on now. R comps fit different then all season. Something to do with side wall construction, all tires fit differntly depending on sidewall construction for that matter

Sam I know your thinking of how good these would be for when you take it to the strip, Only need 2 for traction in a strait line, if your still interested in the 3 tires let me know.

Should have probably checked if I tightened the clamp for the coolant hose under the intake manifold. Almost shit a brick when I saw it leaking coolant.

Paint those ****ing fog blanks black!!!! jk! Looks better than rust, and cutting your front springs was definately the way to go. Reverse rake makes Jesus cry, you know.

LOL @ the Golf. Is that the pimped version of the circus car for the clown?

Looking good though Sam. Keep up the good work bro!

It's actually a OEM VW. Not many of them, but it's called a Harlequin edition, a panel colour from each colour of that year.

And thanks. I have a basketweave on the back right. I need a wheel straightened.

Really? For me, I think you'd have to be on crack to order that colour scheme. But, it really is original. I think you'd be screaming way to much attention with that. One oppsies and your screwed because you could probably be scene from space with those colours lol.

Harlequins can actually look pretty good, but I have not seen another car pull it off (saw it tried on a civic was bad)



In Sams case multi color >>> Rust

Ha; didn't notice the plate on that harlequin when I read your blog post on them-- CLR BLND

I remember the Harlequin golf coming out, whatever magazine I was reading as a teen-- and it was either Road & Track or european car, I guess-- made a moderately big deal of them... I never realized how few of them there were or that they'd still be a cult item however many years later.

All and all, resale value not coming into consideration, I'd rather Sam's M50 e30...

Learn to love the wobble! I have It's a free massage!

Scott, trim your fatass sig, it knocks every thread you post in further out of whack than your stupid-ass comments do...

(see, you could have been getting love for equating Sam's ride to a novelty VW... but no, fat ass sig = hate...)
