Good choice going with the Pony. Price tag was a bit steep for what gas prices are. But if you want it bad enough you will pay it. Nice ride!

98 Black MTX (no options) retired at 339k miles. Powder UDP, Kamikaze header, 19mm RSB,Fidanza flywheel, progress springs/SR struts, Otter strut bar.
02 black MTX (loaded) 127k miles. MMI intake, LXQ1. Waiting for warm weather to swap the rest from the 98.
its hell trying to find wheels for this thing. i know what i want, but nothing will fit. like i said,, im trying to go retro with it . ive yet to find a decent set of cragers that will fit, and it pissing me off. i really really hate the wheels.
98' MTX - Bolt on.
Debadge and tint of course.
Now here is the route I would take. Lower the front, not alot, but enough to give it a more agressive stance. I wouldn't be too overly concerned about handling. From getting the automatic v6 I assume you won't be beating on it. Just cruising. Decent aftermarket rims, and maybe a wider set in the rear.
Mach 1 hood, and a nice set of louvers for the rear quarter glass.
That is as far as I would go into over all looks. Then I would get intake/header/cat delete/exhaust for a deep growl.
For as much money as it would really take, I think it would look spectacular like that.

ive made up my mind,, i dont want to change the appearance too much, no way i fucken wit a beauty like this too much. so the mods i will put on is as follows
tein lowering springs
gt front grille, with fog lights
de-badge it of course]
darker tint on windows
and white letter out tires, with original rims
perhaps, maybe a open intake hood, (to help keep temp down )
and then just ride off in the sunset.

I highly recommend Cooper Cobra tires.
I'm on my second set on the Z. They look great, nice fat sidewalls. My first set lasted 75-80K miles and would have gone further but I wanted fresh tread for winter, which they're great in. They handle great too. Cost me about $80/tire for 195/60/15.
