the car is super clean and has been tastefully modified to keep it almost like original. since it was an old car i wanted to make the pics look old and vintage looking. i think i went over board on some of them

That's a really gorgeous Z car. I've got a major soft-spot in my heart for those cars. What's all done to it performance wise?

i think i went over board on some of them

Yeah, just a bit. Try to keep a little tone in the body highlights.
It looks pretty good in #s 3 & 8. I've always liked those, & he did a great 'restoration' job on it.
