This is a neat spin on a very conservatively designed car. Overall, I like it, but I don't like how he did the exhausts, and what is that on the rear window?

Diffferent for sure, but I don't really like it all that much...exhaust, blue stuff around the bottom, hood pins, rear window...they all kinda bring it down for me, IMO

A 1985 Delta 98 Regency Brougham, yes. This '91 doesn't do it for me. It looks like some kid just learned what complementary colors are.

That olds looks all riced up. I don't like it. The tint, rims and how it's lowered looks good with the car, but the hood pins, hood scoop that looks like it's just sitting on the car and not part of it, the exhaust, the mismatched colors, and all that other crap has got to go. The interior looks ok but it doesn't need the two tone, unless the exterior is two tone, but its not.

I would tend to disagree with the "showcar" statement that owner keeps making.

After thinking about it for a while, I have to say on the whole, I think it's kind of a dumb idea. I like how its lowered a tad, and its got decent rims, and tint, but the hood pins, hood scoop, exhaust, and paint color has to go. I also think he should have fabricated a center console, and taken the digital dash out of another Ninety Eight.

If I would have done it, It would be black, with tint, and some BBS style rims, but I would have kept the interior pretty much stock, maybe some aftermarket wood dash appliques.

Rims kind of like these:

Okay, I'll tell you how I would do that car.
1.Rims have got to be a little bigger
2.hydros, nuf said
3.salvage the orange by putting some heavily metal flaked gold flames
4.exhaust would come out the side, in between the front and rear doors.
5.no hood pins or scoop
6.straight black interior
7.definatly loose the blue pin striping... wait thats not pin striping... Is that rubber tubes??? LOL
8.Engine would be golded out (gold paint if not gold plated). BLING BLING!
9.loose that sticker on the window
10.cant have a car like that without fuzzy dice
