Awesome stuff. Time to put on some flame throwers and full hydraulics for the suspension. Fantastic.

Which one, specifically - the one on two (or four, depending on the time of the day) legs or the one on four wheels?

As for names, I have a very unoriginal suggestion which nevertheless describes this monster very aptly - Fire'n ICE ?

Sounds good - just call her 'Marilyn'. Simple and to the point.

Or pick up any famous lady's name (except JJ, Sam!).

lol@steeroid

The thing is, JBL already has done a Marilyn Monroe car, called the Hollywood Honey and that would not be original. Fire N' ICE is funny, but not everyone would get it.

That is something I would have never let anyone do to my car, but on someone else's car, its cool. Both the design and the workmanship are great.
With those huge speakers, I guess you just need to shift the balance to the left speakers and the car would veer to the right.
Amazing work Sam. What's your next project?

That's one smokin' ride! (Literally too, as long as the smoke machine stays there, heh, heh). Sam, I can't believe you made her shine like that with just collin and some old cloth!

Names for the car:
Freya
Aphrodite
Siren (In greek mythology, sirens were beautiful women who lured sailors and mesmerised them with their song--and made them do things the didn't want to do)
Calliope (One of the nine greek goddesses - also called muses - of music)

Siren. I like Siren.

The JBL Siren. That sounds pretty hot. Another one to add to my list.

And guys.... I am not going to call the car Umrao Jaan under any circumcisions.

No Monroe? How about Brangelina?
'JBL Jolie!' has a nice ring to it.

The Eyeballer was disbanded and put to rest. It lasted 2.5 years and did some extensive touring in the country. The point was made and then we put her to rest
