Chris, having met you in person several times, I am deeply saddened by the ribbing you are getting in this thread. You are such a kind, caring person. You don't deserve any of this. Ah, wait a second. Weren't you the one egging on some certain individual regarding my car? In that case, allow me to post of couple of test drive pictures:






Look at that quality control! Just think what would have happened if this tire had blown while you were driving down the highway. That's pure customer service dedication right there by the THR team!

Sleep tight Chris!

In other words...he didn't feel like paying for OnStar, so he puts Darth Bobble-head up on the dash to scare away thieves, instead.

Yup, and for the record, he too, thinks the seats should be adjustable up and down. lmao

She kept telling him to stop: "basta"...and either "you're going to hit something", or "we're going to crash"...something along those lines, I believe....

I know more Sicilian Dialect, than pure Italian...which I think that is. Plus...her terrified screams and that fugly "H" on his jumpsuit kept distracting me.

That's brilliant right there. Don't want to scare him off type of thing. But wait, he's a mod he HAS to keep coming in here and reading EVERY post. Poor sucker.

You know what Tom told me? As he was working on Chris's car...he found that if you chew up the bolt heads with a pair of pliers, you can use a range of different sized socket sets to losen them! Thinkin' outside the box, this one...Chris is in great hands!

If Robomod has auto-ban I'm f**ked [edited]

I think "Cherry Bomb" mufflers will have a new meaning after this build.
