Default Wrecks to Riches

Anybody watch Wrecks to Riches last night? - show about Barry White'* speed shop.
They did a special on Mustangs. Anyway Ford selected them as a builder for a Ford Booth competition at SEMA and "sold" him a bright yellow Mustang GT for $1 and he proceeded to turn it into a "Super Muscle Car."
The newer Mustangs have been growing on me lately, especially with just a few cosmetic body pieces to make it look incredibly aggressive - not ricey at ALL in my opinion. Anyway, after watching the show I couldn't help but dream a little bit, so I busted out GT4 and got one of my own . Here'* a few shots of my Barry White inspired Mustang GT.
Barry White'* "Super Muscle Car" version (sorry couldn't find any better pics)


GT4 Version (best I can do)


Like my clear corners?? Too bad it'* only photoshop and can't really do it in the game...


I just posted it in the "toys" thread, but here'* my setup. $50 including the seat. The wheel was about $100 but well worth it to me. Many miles of fun so far When is an H-pattern shifter and clutch pedal coming for a video game?? I can't wait!!


Any other GT4 people on here?

I saw it last night and IMO the one Barry'* shop built was one of the best realistically obtainable one there.

One of my faves was when they built the GTO
