      It's Dupont so you know it's something good, and expensive:

      I usually don't go for that kind of thing, but that is epic.

      Perfect color for that car. It would be such a shame to loose those great lines with a black car.

      That's fantastic... my only objection is that I don't care for 'chopped' cars too much. I'd rather have the roof line normal and practical. But, wow, what a car.

      Frank DeRosa has always built radical custom Cadillacs. That's one of the more tasteful, and it's gorgeous!
      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      it's such a big car that it's still practical.

      Love the DuPont Registry...that was my playboy when I was younger. That and penthouse...

      If I had that car, I'd probably drive it for five minutes only to turn around go back home and wash it.

      Chopped or not, that thing's hot. I particularly love the extreme attention to detail, and how hidden things are for the air ride management. Nice little tough having it hidden away.
