    Thread: 73 Caprice x Rolls Royce Phantom (warning.. pics are big)

      It's not even DONE yet, and the owner has $150,000 into it...

      --Supercharged 572 Merlin Big Block
      --TIS 30" rims w/air-bagged suspension (notice how it sits at regular height)
      --Kandy Red paint (look at how deep it is)
      --10 12" Kicker subs
      --Complete one-off Phantom front clip

      I'm sure you guys are wondering why has it cost $150,000 so far?

      Personally, I'm not feeling it. Give me another $150,000 and let me buy a real Phantom.

      So instead of an engine, it has a guy who chills in the engine bay and moves the car flinstones style? Cool!

      Well done.

      So... that's a little over 60K... was the rest invested in drugs? j/k

      I saw a Fiero the other day on a tow truck.

      You could only tell from the rims.

      It was a kit car impersonating a Lambo Mercialago.(SP?)

      For what it is, job well done but there are many other auto projects I would rather endeavor with $150K.

      WOW you guys are pretty nice actually.

      for good quality of work.

      for one UGLY looking car

      Just because you can....doesn't mean you should. Seriously, the $150,000 would have been MUCH better spent by just giving it to me.

      That $150k could have paid off my house and left me with enough to buy a really nice ride.

      The pictures look good enough to give him props for the work, as long as the bodywork doesn't look like doo doo close up. But not my style. Either he can sell it to some pimpsta gangsta rapsta balla for more than he has in it, or he'll lose his arse on it down the road, or it'll end up stolen.

      Good for him, but not for me.

      Cheers, Adrian

      Good to know he lurks here....Your car looks like a tasteless piece of junk. 30inch rims, true balla right there, chromin up a rim off farm equipment and putting rubber bands on there, that is real crunk.

      Would have been better with some real Phantom wheels or something a little more corresponding.

      And... the bottom of the front misses some chin.

      Looks ridiculous. Like a photo-realistic cartoon.

      And something about the front clip doesn't look right.
