Mitzkity is an '06 Daytona Blue with woody kit and old skool wheels. By day she's a li'l surf wagon --



with visor, eyelids, & a 3rd brake light to show her attitude --



In fact, even her front plate is LAZY! It says License to CHILL.



BUT.... finally the girl got a little excitement in her life with the INFERNO. Unfortunately only 3 out of 4 tubes fit, as her behind is being reserved for hunkier exhaust issues. But enough talk about her butt...

Daylight shot:



What I'm hoping for here are some suggestions on favorite settings to show her off - when I take her to the car club, what would be your favorite showy ones?? I'm new at the remote.

And these are her first little movies -

That's a nice HHR you've got. I think they're pretty cool cars. The wood kit gives it a real nice look. icon_cool.gif

Hey SC - can't figure out how to access your guestbook. Anyway, I love that black car with the huge nostrils - what is it? Mean looking thing! Oh, used to have an Expedition, very useful car, now we're into our car clubs and mods. I do like those Explorer wheels you have there - but cleaning them is probably like doing my whitewalls - WORK!

Thanks Knox - wow, those aren't stock grills are they, on your cars? BIG CARS you got there!!! I love people who take care of their autos and don't just dump them for a new model. My 2 cars are here to stay! I'm a fan of the old school look, and many aren't, but I'm here to REPRESENT!!!

thats weird that you cant access it icon_confused.gif dont know what to say to that just try and do it again or something and the car with the "nostrils" would be a Trans Am WS6 pretty nice and the explorer is a RIP car and yes they were very hard to get in between the chrome studs near the lip. and just overall every where but they were sure nice when they shined.

Kinda reminds me of some old school mafia car. Like you would see with two tommy guns sticking out the windows.

ehhh. Ill tell you what. You definitaly did some nice work on it and i can tell you worked hard on it and it is nicely done. BUTTTTT i think the car is ugly no matter what you do to it. Sorry but the car it self is ugly not the mods you did to it. But at least it is done the right way and doesnt look like a 3 year old modified it.

Ya, that grille is definately not stock. And if you're talking about the 3 trucks in my sig, they're all the same car in different colors. I painted it twice biglaugh.gif

That looks straight up old classic woody wagon! Very nice man, very nice.

hot sure if I like the "lazy" headlight eyelids, I would've went tilted in for more aggression, but to each his own.

Ha, I can tell you went for an all out "lazy" theme. Headlights with the cover makes the car look like it's about to fall asleep, that gave me a little chuckle icon_razz.gif

icon_smile.gif Well, an honest opinion is always the best. I have very wide tastes and really don't knock anyone's fav rides. However, when I go to car shows, I always tend toward the restored gassers and old hot rods, and the woodies. Can't afford'em though. The HHR was designed by the same person who designed the PT Cruiser, and is modeled on the 1949 Suburban. The look was meant to bring back memories of that time period, one which is near and dear to my heart - plus it had to be a more comfortable, quiet, sweet machine that didn't guzzle too much fuel or take up 2 parking places. Add affordable, and I was THERE!

Whoever mentioned about tilting the eyelids for a more aggressive stance - VERY good eye you have - that's exactly what the installer told me about them.

Silly Justin: My warranty is intact and my dealership adores the car!

Tim: Many of the HHR owners have gone with a gangster motif on their cars, and if I had got the black one, I would have also. I really think it rocks!!

SC: I figured out the guestbook - thanks.

Kornholio: Thanks - it was a lot of fun to do.

EVERYONE: ROLL WITH WHAT YOU LOVE!!!

Them's fightin' words! poke.gif icon_biggrin.gif

I like the HHR. If the PT didn't come out, I would probably get an HHR. Actually, since the PT and HHR are fairly similar, and the PT has been out for about 7 years, you could always check out the PT groups to get ideas (Although you seem to have a lot of good ideas already. I've always liked the woody motif on the PTs, and it looks good on the HHR as well)

How come the "eyelids" don't seem to fit properly? Or is that the intended design? It looks like the section surrounding the indicator light doesn't follow the lens contours.

Don't worry, the hhr isnt MUCH better then the PT in my book :-P Personal opinion of course.

GoldenRod - I completely agree with you about the eyelids... guess why?? They are PT CRUISER EYELIDS!!!! They fit it completely correctly. I'm just waiting patiently for the designer to do one for the HHR - in the meantime, they are just on with sillicone. Have you been to the website of PT BOB? He has done a lot of my work and actually my car is on there BUT! it's mostly PT's. He's a master painter and mod guy and has been featured in MANY CRUISER magazines. An aging hippie like me, he's a real kick! You should go take a gander at Californiacruisers.com.

But, no one is helping me out with the inferno - I know all the buttons, but I can't do the math that gives me a MILLION colors and I thought it could do a striping pattern with the light? You guys, you don't just turn on the demo mode and let it go with that do you?? That's lame! Oh maybe you are just modding with LED parts and don't have the underbody kit?

Check out my post in the How-To forum. I did a little writeup for the Inferno kit.
