I watch the show all the time, and love his bikes, but I'm not feeling this design.

On a positive note, I did notice on the preview that he put a Whipple on it!

I'm gonna be mr. positive... i appreciate creativity, and where he was TRYING to go with it, but it was not done well.

I'm a big fan of flat black, and i think the rivets could work, but the side rivets are just the wrong lines to go with the C5. Needs more angles, not swooping curves.

But yea - let Chip give it a try. Even if 89% of his builds are two tone, they always look good.

And Lets go Bears - Beat Xavier.

It's all about the TV show. Without that, those two businesses would have folded long ago.

Leave the custom cars up to guys like Foose. TV doesn't do a lot of his cars justice. I saw one of his Mustangs in person a few years ago... freakin awesome. He knows how to use the lines of a car in a good way, and really has an attention to detail.

I like the way his two tones kind of stand out as his. I walked up to a '68 Mustang at a car show that was two tone dark gunmetal gray and silver with some yellow/orange pinstripes. I mentioned to my friend that it looked like something Chip Foose would do... and he walked up behind us and said - yes I would and did! Stunning paint work and complimenting color use.

Looks like he took the Bike build off a little far and took the Rivet concept one step further... not a fan, it does not look right IMO.

It look pretty good to me. The rivets aren't a bad touch. It isn't that bad and Iv'e seen WAAY worse than this on cars in general.

He didn't do much to it but painted it, new seats, a speaker or so, and a aftermarket shift knob . Maybe he had a time crunch. I used to watch the show so I got respect for his work.

Would I buy it even if it was $35,000? No. You can't hit a home run on all projects.
