Kathy! We've missed you!

And how about you rip out the rear seats and replace them with an MTX Jackhammer? That way, if anyone so much as tries to touch your car, the sound waves will literally blow them away

I am not sure if it's still around, but it's an actual product, or was.. and what it did was, it hooked into your car stereo and synced with your RPM's and you could pick what kind of engine sound you wanted and when you drove it made the sound with your RPM's so it sounded like it was your engine.. You could pick big american motors, indy car, import.. you name it.. funniest thing I had ever seen..
I saw the Vroom box on "pimp my ride" that was pretty cool. Do you know where I can get one. I have lots of money to spend so anything that would make my car seem cool would be great.

Saw this two tone 745 a few hours ago and thought it may serve as a bit of inspiration during your build. Enjoy.

How's your lovely build coming along? Got your gold horns and 28's mounted yet? The anticipation is killing me. I keep thinking, "what psychedelic color is DFEL going to paint his car? What type of lift kit is he going to use? Would Chris Bangle **** his pants if he read this thread?"

I would like to suggest that when you take your new beauty out for the first night on the town you have a brand new outfit and hair cut. I'm thinking something like this would do well.



Let me know what you think.

Yea I removed it because it was just a statement that I no longer owned my 745i. I traded it in at a dealership and got a Honda Civic. We have plans to adopt and we decided that the cost of ownership on a 13 year old car was too much.

I don't like the Honda but it does exactly what is was purchased for. I miss my car but the trade off to bring another member into our family will out weigh a car, home, boat, ect. It all can go and be replaced.

Anyone can PM me for more info, I don't want to hijack this thread and look forward in seeing the tv in the trunk with all the flashy carbon fiber.

Hey Chris,

I didn't know you sold your 7. Even though I'm sure you miss it I would like to congratulate you on getting rid of it for such a noble cause.

What you have said about the trade off of the car for another member in the family is spot on. Cars come and go, but the difference you will make in someone's life will be everlasting. Congratulations to you and your wife. Please keep us posted on your new addition.

David

Let me know what you think.
Unfortunately it is too cold right now to build the car. The guy that is doing most of the work does it out of his mothers house in the driveway. He can only work when its not freezing outside. Painting outside in the winter is also bad because the overspray gets on the snow and leaves evidence behind (Dont think we are allowed to spray a car in a driveway, especially not a government housing driveway, so we dont want to leave evidence behind)

That look you proposed would go very well with my new flashy car. The ONLY problem I see is that I might have to lose atleast 60lbs of muscle to pull it off. I know your man servant was quite muscular before you took him under your care and now he is as frail as could be, with just enough strength to do his chores. How did you manage to get him that way? Maybe you can share his diet with me so I too can lose the necessary weight to pull of this look.

Hmmm, Canada must have some high class government housing with paved driveways and all. Ours are either dirt or gravel; anyone with a little heart could rake it over to hide the overspray. Only way the paint could be detected would be with a black light.

If you're going to paint the color to match the fine outfit I submitted I would suggest pulling the car into the yard. The Gecko Green paint should blend nicely with the turf. Go ahead and swap the wheels out before you begin painting as we know they have to be color matched to the car. Then you can set your four OEM 20's in a rhombus surrounding the car. Douse them in kerosene and set them ablaze. The putrid, burning rubber should provide enough heat for your man to do his thing.

Glad you ask, and I agree, you are too damn strong. I felt threatened by my new manservant and required that he lose 125lbs so that I would have complete dominance over him. The diet is simple; nothing but damp cedar chips (the kind used for hamster bedding) for three months straight. I filled an old bottle of 409 with water and misted them down before each meal. I found that five even sprays provides just enough water to stay alive.

You're a big guy. I've seen the pictures. You may want to cut the water out of the diet if you want to be all fancy by the summer.
