Not much different...20x10 on all 4 corners. Just wider and better looking. I also got different tires-- Vredestein Performance 275/315....

"The Boss" wouldn't let me pull the trigger on the Niche Concourse-----

New Wheels and Tires!!

Got new wheels and tires ordered after I sold the others to Darryl Hatke. I wanted to enhance the original calipers by coating them with clear lacquer. They really turned out great, and the color matches my CGM rally stripes along with the red pin striping.
FedEx delivered the combo and Jackson and I were there when he showed up with the goods. We purchased them from Jon at BestWheelDeals.com. I said it before and it is worth saying again, "Jon is the best of the best when it comes to customer service"... We unloaded them at the garage and proceeded to rip open the boxes---we had a great time together. He is super help and I love him so much!! He then had to put on his Halloween costume...yeah...BumbleBee...from Transformers...looks pretty cool!!
Well, 1st Born Blue had to get into the act...she is not willing to take a back seat to no 'rookie".
Putting the wheels/tires on the car was cool, because things fit so tight with the 20x10 Maas' Modular and the Vredestein 275/315. They clear everything under the car. I am so impressed with the tread pattern...aggressive yet quiet!!....Now when you turn quickly to the right or left, best have your belts on...cause it is going to turn.....NOW!!! End result is Jackson is again happy, I am excited and ABL99 looks like a million.....
Enjoy...Kurt ABL99...

AMAZINGGGGG shots of the car with the new wheels man!! Holy moly! You picked em' great. Are you happy with the way they turned out?

Also, the transformers Halloween costume is the coolest, LOL. If I had kids, that's what I'd buy them for Halloween.

Thanks TCAT for looking....
I really like the look of the 20x10 and 275/315....and they perform just fine. I think I will put an ad in the local paper next spring reading....Wanted...lawns to roll..

Jackson is the best grandson anyone could ask for...We asked God for a healthy, happy baby, and He give the whole package...We thank Him daily....

The tires look meaty . That's the way it should look. Also, that would be a great ad, hahaha.

Whyte Horse Show

Car Show at Whyte Horse Winery....Cold, but had a great time. Had over 100 cars, trucks, bikes. Wine, food, music and wonderful people....That is what it is all about...
ABL99 was entered in the LM (late model) class...again, Vettes, Shelbys, etc....She was fortunate enough to bring home the "Best in Class"....

I had faith in her as a winner!!........Blue is a 'crowd favorite'.....

Kurt...ABL99....

This is ABL99's thread! LOL

I was just about to post something about ABL99, but I at the same time read Kronix's thread. Man, I can hardly wait to see and hear THAT beast with the new cam and all the goodies to go along with it...

What?!?!..this is ABL99's build thread!!!.....Oh well, I love paying respect to others more than our own...

Better check out his for the upcoming events.....

I will get something of ABL99 on here....Kurt ABL99....

Hi Tom,
Everything is super. I have been enjoying everyone's cars and their threads. I made mention of The Kronix on my thread the other day, not having anything to post about ABL99.....
I have a small video to post once I remember how to do it. It has been too long since the last one.
I see your ride is as cool as ever! How have you been?...Oh yeah...I have been spending quality time with Jackson..He just turned 4 on November 11, 2012....a Veterans' Day boy and darned proud of it too....

Keep in touch my friend....Kurt ABL99....

That's great news man! Sounds like everything is fantastic. Let me know if you need help with the video posting, and I'll do the best I can to help you post it up. Your car is still looking phenominal and clean as a whissle as usual!

I've been great, thank you. I'm just keeping busy with work, and I just adopted a kitten for my girlfriend and I. So, that little guy is keeping us busy too. It's really fun though!

Have a great holiday weekend my friend!

I wanted to post this vid. If this one works, maybe I can get one of both the 1968 and 2010....



I guess ABL99 will turnover her new shoes!....
