Default Lose that weight

I got to thinking about all of the stories of how we remove the back seats or other items to gain performance times. Humorously, I thought to myself that nobody talks about the weight of the driver. Then a marketing idea came to mind, maybe Slimfast and other diet supplements ought to be sold in the Performance Section at auto parts stores. As the say, "It's food for thought." Groan, 10-4 good buddies.

Yes it is Almond, the brown swoop has metalic flakes in it and it has a red gothic border. Other pictures are at http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/445652 . I'm not sure of the grill manufacturer. I bought it out of a catalog at the shop, Extreme Customs. The upper grill replaces the O.E.M, while the lower grill fits over the existing grill. I had the lower grill painted black first to eliminate the almond color show through. The road runner adds about 5 hp (no dyno tests). I'm adding gofast chrome to the side, a chrome GT emblem over a Red "R". This will give me a psychological edge.
