    Cool article!

    *note the early fender decal and the name, CR-1. This was before they were simply called SuperNatural 475, etc.

    I don't like the way the early RT/10s look. Everything past 1996 was so much better though! But I still don't like the lack of ABS. I'm no expert, but I don't think they had ABS til about 2001, and that's likely the reason you (used to, and still do) see so many Vipers with front end damage.

    If I had my own garage mahal, I'd have a '97 GTS blue with white stripes in there for sure.

    That distinctive C4 shape makes the heart beat just a little faster. I'll always love the C4 - Callaway or stock!



    Beautiful!!

    Sweet, I think that's the first article featuring a Black CR1.

    Sounds good! Keeping the stock color of the car?

    yes i think that would be the best plan. people really seem to have a problem when you change colors , not that i am looking to sell it once its done ,far from it , the artic white has kind of grown on me doing the body kit from them seems easy everything is bolt on except for the doors . so we are ging to paint everything before putting it on the car. i can hardly wait to do this . but then i need good wheels . what ones do you guys/gals like on the areo body

    IMO the Dymags are best - but I'm biased because I love the Dymags I've seen on Callaways here. Then again... Dymags are becoming so rare and expensive....

    The door panels overlay the factory doors. It is easier than it looks...

    A nice set of OZ wheels would be cool. DYmags of course would be best.

    congrats on the aerobody purchase...i have to admit now i am jealous...LOL..my next callaway purchase in the future is going to be a supernatural ZR1 and then install an aerobody if need be...I think you are definitely doing the right thing...down the road I believe the aerobodied cars will be worth more...I absolutely love the deep dish rims for the zr1...has to be 36 mm offset in my opinion and oz's or dymags are going to be extremely difficult to find...a nice set of polished HRE wheels would be nice but an expensive alternative until the deep dish dymags pop up definitely add some photos even during the install would be really cool...once again good luck with the install and ur definitely doing the ultimate option for the car

    thanks all for the kind words , i am getting excited just thinking about it ,xmas early . does the black car in the article have oz wheels ?. if anyone knows where there is a set of either oz or dymags please let me know . my buddy mark the painter is trying to talk me into the g/s stripe in red which would match the interior . the stripe is the 1 big one that goe down the center of the car,he said he could even do it as a ghost stripe , he really is an amazing painter what he can do blows my mind . what do you all think ????????
