Chevy Astro
Aviator Grey
Flat black 18x9.5" Porsche twists with as small as looks 'right' tires
Low but static
Fiberglass smoothie bumper
Strategic color coding and gloss black trim/badge work
Spoon mirrors

At first I thought v8 swap but I don't really care... Stock 4.3 is a-okay.

Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm this vendor on Ebay sells rep decal kits...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-E36-BTCC- ... 27cc4c7e23

I should get one for the Jetta - just leave out the brand specific decals! (Vauxhall Cavalier one would work best!)

White 2008 Diesel Grand Cherokee, with chrome accents on doors.
SRT8 body kit all around (chromed tow hook where dual exhausts would normally exit)
Straightpipe with turndown, just peeking out. Chrome tip.
Slight drop
Mild concave chromed 3 piece BLQs (no lip).
LED tail lights in stock appearance style.
OEM HIDs/Projectors
Licenseplate: LOL HI

Me driving with one hand on the wheel, gangster lean on the seat, biting down on my lower lip with my upper teeth sporting a chrome grille, raybans on, big white tshirt, hip hop blaring.

Driving slow, so as to not hurt any hoes that are chasing after my car, but fast enough so that they don't try and come in through the sunroof.

And that, folks, is what Summer 2014 looks like.

2013 Ford F150 XL (black textured grille and bumpers)
Single cab, long (8') box
5.0L V8
Vermillion Red
Harley Davidson/Raptor black housing headlamps and tail lamps
Ditch the 17" steelies that come with them and swap for those sweet factory 20" silver wheel offering from the FX4
Lowered 5/3 on Belltech lowering bits with drop shocks.

For reference, these are the wheels and the drop pictured on this vehicle, but the wheels here are in dark chrome instead of bright silver:

And here's a base model XL in red:

Was thinking about mk2s on the way home last night.

'89 4 door jetta in that misty light green with GLX interior
power windows, a/c (I feel like an old man typing it out :lol: )
good coils w/my air setup
d90s
2.0 tdi with upgraded injectors, tuning
6 speed with diff

That would, for me, be a perfect all weather daily.

That car sounds dope, and it exists, but with different wheels. Will try and dig it up but it was a west coast build.
