Not bad for an amatuer :wink2::stickpoke:

Congrats!

Wow, what a laundry list there... I think you forgot a few :wink2:

Having ridden personally in this car, I can surely tell you that this is an excellent representation of an awesome build with special attention to detail, thinking "outside the box", and a really unique combination of mods and imported-direct-from-Australia components.

Well earned, Nate. Well earned! :D

brad02ss 01-05-2013 04:05 PM

Congrats! That's a hell of a car, I can't wait to see how the CTS-V dash conversion works out.

Great ride...
 
Nate has probably put more time (and money) in his g8 than most of us combined. He definitely deserves the title.

HOWEVER: i want to see more pics of the car, i'm sure everyone does, but then maybe i don't know where to find them. Nate please we all envy your car hook us up with some pics!

by the way add holden hood to the list of ext. mods.
