Who is this brave (wise) soul?

Does the car have headlights?  I ask because they are worth $500+ each.  In my ramblings of considering a Crossfire, I always figures headlamp sale recoup and then run smoked plexi where the lamps should be. 

He still has the giant and odd (read expensive) 19" rear tires. Other Benz wheels will fit. I'd have gone to a square set up all around. 

Is this car under $2k?

Don't quote me, but I think I heard that with recoup it may be under half budget with he headlights intact.

I think surfshibby owns it?

For as much dogging as the Crossfire takes...  my better half loves hers. We put it on an 18x8.5" front and 18x9.5" rear. Outside of the dumb headlight / turn signal issues they all have and some other minor quirks, it's been a great car. Just passed 100k on it.

Wish I was there. Tod sent this great shot of Bill in his Viper. Extra points for my truck charging the battery on the PLB MR2 in the background!

Last one from the potato cam of that red CRX. That thing was awesome and I'm sorry I didn't get to talk to the owner.
