Thanks for all the compliments! To answer the questions, yep, its supercharged, and the exhaust tips are OEM 76-81 trans am. They are on both sides along with V Force mufflers. The wheels are OEM Ford Mustang, with aftermarket center caps.

Love that car. Looks really clean. Rims are a great fit and those tips are exactly what I want to do with my car. cool

Who's GP is that in the background? Looks like a SD spoiler on it.

5x114.3 bolt pattern is available in almost every wheel style out there - use hubcentric rings and torque wheel nuts carefully!

- Geez it pisses me off that they label wheels as 114.3 instead of 4 1/2 inches...

- Robo, all '98 & '99 Rivieras are supercharged...

- Screw the rims, I L-O-V-E those Firebird exhaust tips!! cheers

Yes, both of those cars in the picture are kick-ass. They are my favorite models to own and mod the hell outta. I like that they're both two door coups. One is the ultimate luxury and the other is Pontiac sport muscle! I really was wanting that same exact GTP but ran across a sweet blk. Riv and I couldn't pass it up. I like your idea with the exhaust tips and would like to hear a sound clip too!
