    yup thats right
    i have been told im a nut case for doing it i have had some tell me that its dumb
    have had some say i guess that could be cool
    have had some say whats the point
    and lots of others say lots of other things
    but when it comes down to it personaly it comes down to what you want and do you want it or not

    this spring and and summer 3 things on my list is to have the hood sand blasted and repainted have the car goen over and shined up a bit in areas that might need to be

    thinking of a new set of 20s maybe the Velocity 815s i like sold my Helo's

    and the lambo doors

    those would be top 3 things i plan on doing over the spring or summer

    now id really like to take 5k and have it repainted crimson pearl but not gona do that
    only time id spend the money for a color change is if i was going to turn this into a show car or it was just going to be my second car as a toy
    wich maybe in a few years that might happen

    thinking of getting an 05 or newer sts 4 or v perhaps
    but not sure if thats gona happen or not time will tell

    An Eldorado - I can see having Lambos cause it's a coupe and only has two doors. (Edit - Actually, an Eldo would probably look pretty bad-ass with Lambos...)

    Sedans with Lambo doors look weird to me. I saw a Jaguar S-Type a while back for sale with Lambos and a very flashy (read: tacky) paint job. Wrong on so many levels.

    But, to each his own. It's your ride.

    also had a flip flop hood
    it was an older model it was a not the 98-02 i know that it was like 93-97

    Re: whats the most extrem customizing you did to a vehicle you have owned

    I'm guessing a front-hinged hood like a Corvette?

    Every time I see that car I have a serious case of WANT. Makes me sad.

    I also saw a Trans Am CE convertible yesterday at a stop light and it was really weird - the driver looked a lot like you. I was slightly creeped out.

    I would have bought that car in a heartbeat, '96.

    Despite what us Americans are bred with, front-hinged hoods are (or at least were) actually pretty commonplace on European cars. When my buddy was helping me work on the Bricklin, the hood opening backwards totally blew his mind! Said it's the only car he's seen do that except Corvettes - I told him it's a mostly European thing...

    As an aside, I suppose the reasoning behind a front-hinged hood is so that the wind won't blow it into your windshield while driving should the latch fail.

    Re: whats the most extrem customizing you did to a vehicle you have owned

    First vehicle I went all out on was an 89 chevy astro van in which I did the following:
    -Silver paint with red ghost flames
    -16 inch wheels with reverse baby moon hubs
    -4 captains chairs wrapped in maroon crushed velvet interior
    -8 12 inch audiobahn subs with 6000 watts of amp
    this was my first attempt to go all out on a vehicle and for the most part was clean and got me alot of attention back in 2001. all the work on this one was done mostly by payed help aside from the system.

    the most expensive one I did though was my 92 honda accord coupe back in 2007:
    -H22A engine swap
    -OBX header
    -OBX chi flow cat
    -Skunk2 cat back exhaust
    -11 Ib lightened flywheel
    -stage 2 excedey clutch
    -chipped P28 ECU street tuned
    -LC-1 wideband gauge kit for tuning
    -15 inch american racing wheels
    -gabriel shocks
    -tien s tech racing springs
    -forbidden short throw shifter
    -ITR shift knob
    -blackhoused headlights
    -amber corners

    all work on this one was done by myself with the help of one good friend and tuning was done by a friend who came all the way from Washington state to Tennessee to help with it.

    as for the cadillac I have now I cant go all out on it since its a shared vehicle between my wife and myself but should she get a newer car and I get the caillac to myself I may do more than the few minor things I have planned.

    and dont start
    Really?

    The only thing that needs not start around here is another of your threads. Go outside. Get some sun. Talk to people. If you're not allowed outside, drop by the FWD section and answer some questions. Be a contributor to the forum, not an attention whore.

    If you don't like my opinion, feel free...
