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

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!

Default 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.
