I love how you murdered out your GXP. I had that in my plans to do on my Yukon XL DEnali but I came across 4 Giovanni 23x10 rims that I couldnt pass up. $525 shipped from CA to ND. I looked up the actual price for these rims and they cost over $1300 a wheel. So $5700 shipped compared to $525 shipped savings of $5175 I couldnt go wrong.

I used to own a 1985 Gray Cutlass Supreme. That was my first car and I loved it. I bought it with everything stock. The body was is good shape so it was time to get to work. I had 15 inch wheels(back then rim size didnt matter) I put Chrome rims on her with 275/60/15 in the back and 225/60/15 on the front. I ended up rear ending a car when they grenaded the brakes illegally in front of me. So I took advantage of that and put a hood scoop on it and a rear spoiler. A friend and I work on a 350 small Block, rebuilt it and dropped he in with a few modifications. Just a reminder out there dont drive a nice car to college and have it parked in the student parking lot. I went to the University of North Dakota and my car was broken into 5 times. The first time they got all of my CD'* and stereo. After that I started pulling everything out when I went into my dorm. Evil *******. I have never harmed a car or broken into a car because respect other peolpes property. I wish there was a way to shock the **** out of them once they sit in the car after they have broken a window.

thanks for the input guys, even myself i'm still not too sure on it. It matched the car perfectly but as they mentioned, it looks plastic/ricey. I admit it
i was bored and i wanted something to do.
worse get worst i'll remove the badges and install new ones.
i'll keep it like this for few weeks, I'll remove it later... maybe? lol

I really like that badge. It fits the car well. I'd keep it like that.

I love the Black and red. It flows with your car. If you would have anything else that was chrome on the vehicle I would say leave it but you got it blacked out with the red rim strip, go with the red and black. Awesome car man. My GXP is silver with alot of chrome extras, chrome door handles, Chrome window inserts, Chrome wheels, so the chrome emblem works on mine but yours has to stay black and red. I also agree with V8 advertising. Especially when the guy at the light looks over and see'* Bonneville and then you blow his doors off. Keep it man. Take care

Did you paint your calipers also, what type of paint did you use for that. Your car reminds me of Keaunu Reaves Charger in Street Kings.

I just noticed you Heads up Display, 112MPH Nice. I had my GXP at 144MPH and it started I was nervous about getting clocked so I slowed her down. 144 would mean license pulled, exhibition, danger to others, and care required. I like my cars to much not to drive them. I am such a hippocrit because my R1 rarely sees double digits.

Thanks, glad everyone likes it... well almost everyone, except the hater with the nice GTO *drool* lol

Zigger, that’* 112km/h. I'm in Canada lol but I did do 237 km/h before which is somewhere around 147MPH, it was fun at the moment but the second I stopped I realised how stupid I was and how I was committing suicide without noticing
