Gangster Award Goes to…

Last Sunday we went to the Prostate Cancer Show & Shine and show some support for the guys that put this on. We didn’t put enter our cars into the show because, as you can see from the pictures, we probably wouldn’t have fit in very well haha. However, there was one GTR there and an Eclipse that looked like it came straight from The Fast and the Furious. Black paint with gold sparkles, yellow accents and interior, suicide doors and all. I didn’t end up taking a picture of it because I wasn’t sure if I was going to even try and edit it. In retrospect, I should have taken it so I could have posted it here for you guys to see because my description is pretty useless.

Anyways, the show was definitely something different than what we were used to. Everything from classics, muscles, and completely custom and hand built cars were out that day. I’ll admit that I almost felt like I was looking at the same thing over and over again. Mustangs, Shelby’s, Camaro’s… It all started looking like the only thing that was changing was the color of the car. I guess that’d be the same if they came to our shows haha. Although, the cars and their pristine condition and the power they were all pushing was amazing. These are the cars that are truly garage queens – they don’t really get driven unless it’s to a show or to rip around the block real quick to put a smile on the owner’s face. Everything from the paint to the leather on the seats, the dash and floor mats looked like they’ve never been used. I personally couldn’t own a car and never drive it no matter how much I loved it in it’s perfect condition.

As we were walking, we stumbled across this Camaro… my jaw literally dropped. It’s like a little bit of JDM lived in this guy and his car. Let’s take a look…

Perfect swirl-free paint finish. Almost looked like it was murdered out but wait…

Carbon lipped wheels. I have no idea what wheels they are but I loved it. He had the size and offset on point with 315’s on the rear. What made me the most excited was that they weren’t gaudy, blingy or obnoxious wheels. This car was already my favourite – what more could I ask for?

As we were drooling over his car, the owner came by and opened up the doors for us. Take a close look at everything in this car. It looks as though nothing has been used. The carbon accents flow inside onto the steering wheel, gauges, and he’s wrapped the center console area with carbon too. Take an even closer look and you’ll see paddle shifters. Fully functional, 4 speed paddle shifters.

A pulled back shot to see his seats. Again, pretty mint except for the little wrinkles from driving to get gas from his house I bet. Nicely bolstered too.

The details don’t stop there. We didn’t notice it at first, but he had a full carbon hood as well. Painted to show the classic racing stripes, except the racing stripe was the exposed carbon. At first we thought it was just vinyl but a look underneath shows that it actually wasn’t. The paint job was absolutely perfect.

A look in the engine bay and it once again – it looks like it’s never been used or touched. There are no scratches on anything and this had to be the cleanest bay hands down at the show that day. You can see his bumper is also carbon – painted the same way the hood was. His trunk was also carbon and the stripes went all the way down to the back. Now if you scroll back up to the first picture, you’ll see a little “lip” – or what we would call it anyway, and that was full carbon as well.

I hope the guy won something because it was definitely an eye catcher. Super nice dude to talk to as well. Well done, sir.
