Tom, any chance you could work some flames into the design like this?
No problem, orange for sure. And we could use those white plates for covers on the compact spares.

I think the white plates should be the primary wheels. I am sure you could find some nice 20" Chinette wheels. I thought "kiln-dried" was right up there with forged. It would fit right in with the Day-Glo orange undercarriage and the snow.

Why don't we take a thread poll and decide what I should do next to Chris's car? Agent orange, flames, china wheels etc. I will then alter and provide photo proof.

Well Tom, since you ask........

First you have to give GTA all the go you promised so the SC is a given.

But the "extra" that will gaaarrrohhnnteeeeeee a "memorable" experience for Chris and probably no loss of future business for you should include the following, some as already suggested.

Hydraulic suspension for low and hi ridin'

Enough subwoofer so that the Florida license plate goes, Baaazzzzzzzzttttttt bat buzzzzzzzz bap bwap buhhhhzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz at every stop light while he is playing "the wheels on the bus go round and round" for the kids.

A side hinged hood with a mirror on in underside to show of the SC

Spinners...............yes, I mean the hubcaps. Further they should be the ones that light up at night while you are driving and programmed to spell out, "look at my bad a$$ Camaro" while he is driving

And as a nostalgic touch, take out the 4 gage cluster and replace it with an 8-track player/CB radio combo. This should go nicely with the 8 foot CB antennae that will fit in at every truck stop from Pennsylvania to Florida.

Any other thoughts on "extras"?

Oh yes...

He needs a VERY quiet exhaust system to keep the old ladies down in Florida content.

He'll need one of his cupholders converted into an orange-juice machine and linked to the middle box (which will be full of oranges).

He'll also need underglow...Orange. All self-respecting people have underglow, right? And Chris strikes me as an orangey kinda of guy.

Tom, Chris mentioned once how he never misses an episode of... "Pimp my Ride" It's a very popular show for a reason, dont'cha know.

I know this is watermelon, but think orange and run with it.

I am quite certain it will get back on course once you receive the car. So until you have the Mazda packed and are driving the Pennsylvania..............I think the "entertainment" will just have to continue.

I think the end of the "harassment" will come when you post up your first picture the THR with you holding the keys.

So until then........................sorry.
