Slow And Old

Ok, so my wife and I go out for breakfast one Saturday morning and she says I think the car dealer down the road has one of those new cars you and the boys were talking about, let’s go take a look.
When we get to the dealer they have a black 2SS/RS M6 inside the showroom.
My wife asks if that was the “kind of car we were talking about”, I said yes and proceeded to climb all over this thing, front seat, back seat, push all the buttons… so after a while she asked if I were ever to get one of these cars what options would I get or change from the one I was looking at and I told her I wouldn’t change anything and she said that’s good because this is your birthday present sign here!

For almost 2 years and 25,000 miles the car has stayed stock except for the muffler delete until now.

Thanks all,

On the wheels I am going to stay with the 20’s with 315’s in the back and I’m 99 percent sure I’m going Gloss black.
I like the Forgestar F14’s deep concave or something similar. I need to decide soon I don’t have much tread on the tires I have now.
