    How the black hides all the subtle body styling that the red factory paint shows. The seats and rims. Also don't believe it's worth 900k more like 500k maybe with it's hacked up chassis.

    Lovin Fast n' Loud.

    Can't wait to head back to the states, planning on heading down to the shop and paying a visit (It's pretty amazing, they actually let the public drop by and check out their current projects between filming)....would also love to get a signed GMG shirt

    Everythings bigger and better in Texas :p

    Will do man.

    Got to remember to take my Chevrolet jacket back into Foose Design this time to try and get a signature from Chip (just missed him last year) (My US trips usually end up with me going to all the well known workshops)

    This time around Gas Monkey and So Cal Speed Shop (not interested in West Coast Customs, not a fan of their outrageous styling)

    Damn those twitter updates are getting annoying. We have stupid show logo on the right hand side taking up space and now this twitter feed. Really distracts from the show.

    Have watched the first episode from this year (last weeks) and it was a bit of a letdown on the mechanics / fabrications side of things. The flipping cars side was good but there was just no enthusiasm from the workers on the build and it showed. Still worth a watch especially for the sales side of things.

    They were a bit but by the looks of things it was them or the stockies, which in all honesty could have been pulled off if they were slamming it like they did. Looking at the problems it had with even a simple build was a bit worrying, cant imagine what it would be like if they had gone for one of their more all out builds.
