Cool Pimp my Vintage Ride

Hello boys,

I did some masti. Heehee.

Car: Cadillac series 62
Year: 1952
Engine (whatever I know): V8, 4.1 liter
Condition: OMG! OMG OMG!!
Everything works. Auto transmission, Power Windows, Entire Sofa seat goes back and forth, Canvas Top is motorized. All in all a very good car.

What I did: Full time pass masti. Did some visualisation and planning and got some nice FLAME ON graphics done. I assure all you car lovers, when I remove it, the paint will be fine, dont worry. This is all thanks to some fine work by X-Treme Graphics, Mumbai. They used some lovely Vinyl made in Germany.

Why: Just. Because we're mad.
It was for the Times AV expo at Bandra, Mumbai at the Taj Lands end.
Also we were launching a new speaker (a new component set, if you want to know) SO I felt like doing some mad stuff.





I had no cleaning stuff and no wax. I cleaned the whole car with a new cotton cloth & one full bottle of Colin on that day and the result was a very shiny car. Super duper.




Then we set up a DJ thing. And had our resident DJ Hussain spin some stuff, straight into the car. I did some spinning too. PARTY!!





Then we got one funky smoke machine and put that in the car



Oh what fun



Normally_crazy ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin bhi hai.



Thats powerfreak too



Here's revvhead in the car



Along came 2L8uloose, elf and Rtech. Notice Elf saying "What the..."



Here is a picture of Rtech moderating his ears while some people stare at him.



All in all a good time was had by all.

The End.

Nice pics Sam boy. Yeah the car was seriously in OMG OMG condition. Didnt look about 4 decades old. And yes you are one crazy fella pulling off something like this in a Classic and on top of that clean it with Colin !! But what a back seat the car has - absolutely plush and insanely comfortable.

We had fun - hanging out at the JBL pit stop and generally roaming through the venue. Even learnt a few DJing tricks as well - thanks to Hussain. The Denon turn table was too cool maan.

And well the sound from the boot was crisp n clean, a pity you werent allowed to play it LOUD.

cheers

normally_don, after you left we got the necessary permission to BLAST. That's why the dandiya king was covering his ears.

Lovely work there Sam, the stripes look gorgeous!! And they better not peel the bloody paint off!!! Seems like everyone had a fun time & why the hell is the Dandiya King moderating his ears at a sound & video expo??

You should tell him with his upcoming wedding he should learn to relax a little at times especially in public

P.S. Just noticed the flames sort of match the tatoo on your leg, Good work!!!

OH MY GOOD LORD!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. Kapasi - IF by chance someone has NOT mentioned this to you - you sure have style! This is out of the bloody world!

PS: I think you just found the Baarat vehicle for Dandiya King! No excuse not to dance!!!!!!!!!!

I'm seriously lost for words. I hope this is YOUR car and not a JBL car.

PPS: I just saw something like this today where I am currently, but this beats that pimp ride by a mile and a half.
