Default Do you run stock or modified?

From what I have read here, the majority of formites have modified their cars one way or another. I'm curious about how many folks have done some sort of modification and how many haven't. Please comment on what mods you have done, mechanical, electrical, physical (lowering), paint & graphics. I am especially interested in any mods that increased gas mileage to a PT with an automatic. I also need to know more about the "dissapearing trailer hitch", and trailer hitch wiring.

So far, I've upgraded to a 6 disc changer w/ cassette deck out of a Magnum, and soon to be Mopar reverse sensors, chrome exhaust tip, and I'm still debating on whether or not I want a chrome fuel door.

What ive noticed is that you always want more than you have :/ fact of life. but nothing beats the satisfaction of knowing your the master of your car and it looks how YOU tell it to.
