Interior is a mixed movie car theme with a few custom touches by the owner. Auto Meter Phantom custom gauge panel was fabricated to customer specs, the Go Baby Go Nos panel is direct from the movie set but has the addition of a purge button that sprays the fog out the grill like two snake fangs. Scat seats with 5 point harnesses hold you in place, custom built subwoofer box takes the place of the original back seat, custom built 8 point roll cage for strength, subframe connectors hold the car together. Interior work was performed by Tops Auto Trim.
The trunk holds the NOS bottle as well as the battery, with a custom sprayed finish that has both insulating qualities as well as good looks. PSE wheels with Nitto tires take hold of the road with 17x 9.5 rear wheels and 17x8 front wheels, Nitto drag radials hook the car hard and standard Nitto 555’s work up front to point the car in the right direction.
Custom painted Pepper Grey Metallic with Black Metallic stripes shine to a show car slick finish that draws everyone in at car shows and on the road. You can’t drive this car anywhere without people stopping you to take pictures or taking pictures with their camera phone while driving down the road, it is truly an eye catcher.
This car won at Dallas Autorama and has won first place at every show since it has been built.
