    Hey Guys, i Just picked up this Calais What do ya's think of it.
    List of mods,

    Fresh White Top Paint,
    Rolling on 19 Inch Hp Chromies,
    Superlow Suspension,
    Tan Leather Interior,
    Extractors and 2.5inch Exhaust right through it,

    Im in the process of getting the stereo all pumped up,
    Just got the new USB port JVC headunit, with some 4inch Kenwood's in the front, and soon to have my 350 watt kenwood 6*9's in the back,
    in the middle of painting and getting some vs speaker pods put into my doors.

    thats enough dribbling,
    let me know what you think

    Nice lookin calais.. Love the leather.. I have seen another VP with the same colour leather... It was for sale from a wrecker... Was going to buy it, but it didn't with the door trims... So I let it go... Kinda kicking myself now...

    Not a big fan of the calais down by the shifter tho, but that is just me... I like the pic that you are using in your avatar.. Nice back drop...

    Nice ride mate. I always liked the look of the VN/VP dumped with the square wheel arches. That pic with your car in front of the rock wall looks great too. Where was it taken?
