i do have 2 new pics of exterior and a few old interior pics that don't look that great:

exterior:




interior(old pics, it looks more cleaned ^ now):






i want 2 get some rims....i might try and go 2 a junk yard some day and find used escort GT rims because those look pretty good but what things should i do? i am leaning more for looks than performance because i'm not going 2 get awhole lot of performance from this engine, if i were to drop a GT engine in it i would have 127 stock which would have much more potential(and it gets better gas, hehe). i want to try to make it look nice not ghotty.

give me your opinions CF!!
you asked "what should you do with your car"

While I think you should use it and drive it if that is what you mean

IMO from what i've been reading you should wait a year, save some more money and put money towards a car that can be modified to look good. No offense, don't make yourself look bad on the streets. Don't put a body kit on it, don't put any type of nice rim unless its specifically for your car, and don't put tons of money into the interior.

Heres why..My friend had a car that was exactly like that interior and out but was a ford tempo. Yes even murder red seats. anyways he did the neon thing, nice sound system (which you could do) and was tempted on putting nice rims and even a body kit on it. Well thank god he got some sense into him. He wait only a few months to get a ford ranger with a hood scoop, dual exhaust, nice sound system, slight lift, and a chrome strip at the bottom. It was 8k but one verrrrrry sharp truck. wasnt a hick one by all means.

In the end he said it was worth the short wait. He woulda looked like a fool and wasted the money making him keep the car for over a year.

Try to get some racing bucket seats. Get a better sound system, sub, whatever you can manage on your budget. Lol, maybe try to get a tint so its cooler in the summer? I'd want some cool rims, and some neon leds under your car so when you go cruising at night, your car gives off a cool glow. G'luck.

Ah, thanks. That sounds awesome. Why did Dev make it sound like a bad thing though?
