Black on Black Pics - Up Above Salt Lake

Finally got the car washed today so I could take some pics. The weather had not been cooperating and you can see there are still plenty of clouds. This is my (still foolishly staggered) winter set-up of LM-25s on the Breyton GTS-R rims. I think the car looks pretty damn mean. I know many dislike the black wheels (heaven help us on a BMW!) but I wouldn't have it any other way. I will rock the darkness proudly.

These shots were all taken up in my neighborhood so you can see why I was an idiot to go to this car from an STi - soon there will be 6 feet of snow up here. Sorry I'm no photographer; I used my wife's pink camera to take these then cropped the hell out of them in iPhoto! Ha. At least the scenery makes them look good.

Great pics, even better color choice.:wink::biggrin:

I absolutely adore SLC and the valley, mostly for the people, conservative culture. A buddy puts on a model car show in SLC, haven't been there for over a decade though I have considered moving just for the culture.

I am going to have to respectfully disagree with those wheels, The red (time attack, is that what it's called) stripe is too far in the wheel, and from a distance you can't tell where the tire starts and the wheel ends. Maybe that's the point, but I just am not getting it.

Not feeling it at all.

Now, great scenary in the background though, and the stance & offset of those wheels is excellent. Loving the dark look bro!

Yeah.....SLC and the periphery is a great place for the weather, the snowboarding, the mountain roads, but the conservative culture - that would be the sole checkmark in the minus column for me. The fact that they declared Utah for McCain with 0% of the vote in made sick and the LDS church's recent meddling in other peoples' business in California swayed my opinion of it from primarily indifferent to....something lower than that, anyway. The church/state line here is occasionally a bit fuzzy, as well.

I don't let that stuff wreck the place for me, though. Life here is great until I can't find anywhere to eat on Sunday evening.
