I have a name plate coming next week sometime.

Erick can't get to the install of my radiator and heat exchanger because of your POS car taking up space at his place. I have an appointment mid November after he's done with SEMA.

Thanks Fly, I really like the stripes also.

There's something about how they play off the angles of the hood vents that really make them work. Haven't had a chance to do any full length photos yet... but soon.

Ray, any reason why you didn't get the same color stripe as your rocker panel ones? I think I would've went with the stealthier darker ones. Just my measley $.02.

So this is what a photographer sees right before he gets hit with a golf ball.

Here are the latest pics of the Challenger. I forget how to put small thumbnails on here.

It's lowered now 1.5" in the front and 1.0" in the rear (the nose used to be a little higher than the rear) and now the rake is much better.

I rear-ended a tourist that slammed on his brakes in front of me. You can kinda see the damage to the nose. It's not that bad, but I have a new front clip in the garage ready to be painted.

There is a pretty neat function that is NOT in the manual of the car. If you hold down two buttons on the steering wheel for 10 seconds, it gives you a performance menu on the info section of the dash. You can scroll through different bits of information, and the last screen is a 0-60 calculator. When you are stopped, it blinks "READY". Then when you step on it, it calculates your 0-60 time. It's hard to get traction, but my best time is 5.16 seconds. I'm getting a Predator tuner for it, and with the 93 Octane tune it should drop to around 4.6 seconds. Not too shabby for a 5300 pound car... much more than your 3600 lb cars!!

Wow... everythings turning blue!

Kinda like when I turned on my DVR tonight and I get this message..."You currently have no shows recorded".

There goes 40 hours of recordings.

The company that makes them doesn't offer that color yet. When you see the whole car they blend much better because they pick up on satin highlights on the car like the wheels and lower valance ducts.
