Don't hurt me but I used to be someone who would say spending all the money to mod a car like this to make it fast is a waste of money, and you should just get a faster car to start with.

That was back when I drove my LS1 and LT1 cars...

Now that I had to get something more practical and really like my car and have begun to do things to it, I can see why people do it...and I will continue to do it as well.

We don't do it to be the fastest on the road, we do it because it is fun, it makes our cars unique, and it makes them more personal...I started with appearance mods on my car, because in the last 12 cars I have owned, I have always had something unique and driving something that looks the same as every other model of that car on the road just isn't any fun or enjoyable for me... Now that it looks decent and is unique I can focus more on making it a little bit quicker.

Anybody can look good and run 13'* in a _________...... but how many great looking Bonneville'* and decently quick ones are out there? ..... exactly..

I get asked a lot at the pumps if I have a custom paint job. Reply back with nope came in this color. Your car on the other hand is over the top but in a good way.
