Default First time whorage of the Red Rocket!

Well, this is my first time ever whoring since I've bought the car almost 3 years ago. I finally got around to washing her and decided to bust out the camera and post some pictures on here for your enjoyment. I hope you enjoy them!







The sound system. A 12" Alpine Type R and an Audiobahn A8000T. It gets pretty loud and was cheap when I bought it. I'm planning on cleaning up the wiring soon and mounting everything so it'* bolted down.



My head unit, Kenwood x790, and a voltmeter for my amp so I can monitor my voltage easily. Fits into the perfect little spot.



Back seats. Just wanted to show how great of shape they are in. The cord running through there is for the voltmeter and I'm working on a way to hide it better.



My dad'* play toy, a 2001 or 2002 Corvette Convertible. Not even 5,000 miles on it. Absolutely beautiful.



19" chrome rims and tires.





My dad working on his 1964 Corvair Monza Spyder Convertible. It'* been restored but he'* putting it all together. He also has a 1969 Dodge Charger that is currently being restored. Yeah, he'* a little spoiled.



My dad'* daily driver, a 2000 SSEi. He loved mine so much he sold his 93 Park Avenue Ultra and got this.







My rims and tires before I cleaned them. They look better than they actually were.



After cleaning

Thanks. He had a 1995 maroon convertible Vette that was super rare but he really wanted a C5 so he bought it off of eBay from a guy in Texas, haha.

that'* a good look for the Bonneville emblem to go right there above the headunit. If I had enough room after getting an aftermarket that'* something I would do. The car looks good on the outside as well.

Yeah, it lights up red at night and fits in perfectly with the other lights and colors of the car. I'll try to get a night shot sometime soon.
