Default cruiser question

i've kinda given up on trying to make my large auto a sports car.
I was wondering what you guys think would make it an awesome cruiser ( mechanical or appearance)

Given up? That suxs. Anyway. The things that mean "Cruiser" most to me are the power to get up to highway speed quickly, a nice smooth ride. and many toys, that'* where all the LCD'* and PS2'* come in.

What do you mean? :(
My newest favoritist car in the world is a lincoln mark 8 (VIII)



such a slick looking car.

or my older favoritist car in the world is a cadillac eldorado ETC



but you speak of a cruiser? When you say cruiser... this comes to mind...

Can you believe theres an L27 in that go cart?

i like the old Caddy ELdorado ETC'* myself, the spare tire look on the back of the lincoln doesnt do much for me. You should put some nice rims and tint your windows.

Exhaust for sure, and a great engine note.

Cruisers are all about attitude, noise, volume, and looks must all be taken right.

If you're looking for the sports car feel then you may want to try an SSE or SSEi with the aggressive engine and tight suspension.
