How do YOU define pimping.....

I consider it slapping gaudy tastely crap on the car making look like a pimp owned it.

Me I have some period correct mods to mine.

Are you going to drive this car everywhere, or park it in a garage and drive it on clear and sunny days? I wouldn't bling up the Benz if you will be parking it often on the street or in a mall parking lot.

stock appearence = under the radar

YES ! like that green one, basically big chrome wheels and dump it on its guts! loose the cannons at the bak tho, its just not right! my interrior is cream leather or fake leather what ever they came with, wood grain is perfect, outside is maroon over silver with a few little door marks that can be touched up with some chip stick. She looks beautiful whens she's washed ! im 17 by the way, me mates at school call me a pimp and she's all stock haha.

Ive seen that blue one on cardomain Nomada. Im so evious of that interior and the hydraulics. Definately a clean looking custom. I plan on doing the same suspension setup with 20" spokes...should be interesting...

He's done a good job on that car, especially when you see how he used to have it
That interior is fantastic for sure

Yeah hes definately put some good money into it. I love the late model seats and the way he recolored the dash... Im not so sure about that steering wheel though. Personally, I would have made a different choice on that. But Hey, uniqueness is what makes it yours....
