Hey Ghost,

I must say, the Gold and the Silver do not go together very well. To me, it clashes like pink on red . . .

I think the gold would look okay if you were to gold plate all of the chrome on the car (otherwise, I think the gold looks really tacky [xx(])

I'm sure someone else will have a different opinion though . . .

Regards,
Bryan

Ghost:

I does not look good!! However, if you get all of the chrome done in gold, I think it would look good. Of course, please! do not gold plate the rims. My opinion: it looks 1/2 assed!! Sorry, fiancee...!

This 1997 s600 is not mine, i own a 97 s500, and this car was on the internet for sale, and since it only has 38000mi and owned by the u.s government,and was a good deal, i was interested in it, but wasnt excited about the gold like most of you.

I wonder how costly it is to re-chrome it back to normal.

Ghost:

I don'tthink it would be that expensive, I'll say less than $1K US. Is there a web site where you saw this car? If so, where is it?

UGH...

I agree, that the gold doesn't look very good.


Shmelvin- When people say things like 'That's Ghetto', it annoys me. It is completely ignorant. Seeing as how I lived their until age 10,I would know that not all people in the ghetto drive cars with gold plated everything. don't believe everything you see on TV.
