Well, I partner one, and there's the brokerage too. It gets pretty busy. confused_face.gif

I guess yeah if we broaden the definition of "run a casino".  Hey veyron, even with Interwebz anonymity, you'll understand if we don't want to get too deeply into this in public spaces.  Let's just say that things will make a lot more sense if you start treating "retired" as a euphemistic code word for something else.

 

Anyway, back to cars.  Achmed, have you seen that Trans Am body kit that is available for the Camaro.  I applaud the effort, but I'm not sure if I'm crazy about the look.

I still have nightmares about the last Camaro-related post you made; so this better be really good. ph34r.gif

It's a kit by Hurst, and it costs more than the car ($55k). blink.gif

Nope, still registering my "throw up and black out" response as bad as the Chromero did....

Still a ways off:

And here I thought he had just bought partially into the garage that did all his automotive work for him....made sense given the extent of his automotive love. redface.gif

Well, I guess it's better looking than the Camaro, but that price is ridiculous!

Out of curiosity - does the kit do anything but make an already ugly car even uglier?

I'm afraid Ima have to disappoint you there.

But hey, look on the bright side.  At least it's not a chrome Trans Am kit...

Supercharger, new tranny/shifter, new cams and crank, adjustable suspension, anti-roll bar, new T/A interior. It's by Hurst, so the markup is high, but it is more than just the body.

So which of the cars in the collection brings this song to mind? (if any)

While we're on the subject, which of your cars does this apply to?
