Appearance "mods" complete.

I finally got the car looking the way I want for now. Its time to start getting more serious on the engine mods. Let me know what you think.

Very nice actions shots, and I especially like the transparent hood shot, very cool. I have a brand new 2014 Caprice PPV 9C1 (black, V8) coming in a couple days. Looks just like yours, well, not exactly! Have a great day.

Dave

I like the driving lights and the front blacked-out bow tie. The car needs to be about 1/2-1" lower, I think. The color is PERFECT, though. ;)

No its one of these I got from ebay. One has gone on every 9C1 I had beginning with the first 9C1, a 1988 model.

Garner,

With your permission I'd like to use at least one (or more) of your excellent quality photos, I'm tossing around refreshing some of the front page pictures soon and I think your car would look good somewhere on the site masthead.

Thanks
Eric

Man, parking that car just past the crest of an overpass must've given more than a couple of drivers an 'Oh Sh**!' moment! :lol:

Do the 'LS-X' labels foretell possible under hood updates? ;)
