Show us photos of your ride by emailing them to us at or mail them to Super Street, c/o Readers' Rides, 6420 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048. Be sure to send us JPEGs with at least 1500x1000 resolution at 180ppi (that should be small JPEG, medium quality settings on most digital cameras). Don't forget to tell us your full name, where you live and the highlights of your mods.
