Love the street car setup, part of me wants to ditch my side pipes and roll bar and go this way. Also love the dark blue, on my list for paint colour.
Won’t sugar coat it I really don’t like the wheels. I don’t like big modern wheels on cobras and don’t like chrome/polished wheels on anything, but to each their own...

That is a clean, sleek example. It really shows some good body lines. Wheels add the right accent.

I think that it looks great. The wheels become the focal point since you don’t want side pipes. Smaller wheels would give it a more period correct look but build it the way you want it.

Thatís the look! Although I agree with others on the wheels being too large, too shiny and I would add: a little too far out of the wheelwells.
If you like big wheels I would at least use painted centers and tuck them in a bit.
Iím still fighting with myself because I like the street look so much but donít think it is compatible with my drivetrain (Aluminum FE with borla injection and IRS)
