Whatever happened to...?

Whatever happened to the group purchase or whatever someone had worked out with APC on doing clear altezzas for the tbird? I havent heard anything. Anyone know anything on if and where to get these?

probably dropped it because APC is too big a company, and even they realize that clear or altezza lights on a t-bird are odd looking to say the least.

Actually it's the Japanese name for the Lexus IS200, the originator of Altezza taillights.

But yes... Rice rice baby..

The only modification I would do to improve the taillights would be to make them all led. Leds are brighter and come on instantly. ----- But they are ALOT more expensive. I can dream.

Hey ASSASYN,

I just got the ride (actually updated from a '90 to a '96). Give me a week or so, and I'll have pics. I'm going to do it all right from the getgo: join TCCOA, get the webpage, list the ride. Thanks.

thanks for the head's up

Thanks - actually if you (or anybody else from Southern California that stumbles across this thread) knows of any good performance shops in the Long Beach / South Bay area that does better than average work, give me a holler. I need that kind of inside info. for when I want to start modding the car.

I haven't personally located any really good speed shops yet cuz I am working on exterior right now then working my way in. I believe JBA might be a good place to start though for some tuning and stuff.

no rice is putting a fire extinguisher on your a pillar. If you look at the upcoming and concept cars you will notice we are getting away from the ugly american orange and red reflectors. WHICH I would like to see something for the thunderbird. Its a luxourious look, and some of us happen to like it. If I wanted a "they suck" post Id ask.

Let me know when you get the bird shaved and done.

Then go post over on a honda forum if you don't want to hear anti-rice people complain about ugly white/silver/bling-bling garbage.
