The paint was great! I like how the grill came out and the body kit was cool. I didn't like the rims and all they did for preformance was a Mopar intake and a catback. I mean we never even heard it run! The "A" team should of contacted the 3CF "A" team!!! That motor would have been done up right! Glad Chrysler decided to give them the car. It was sweet to see Foose do up a 300.
Finally watched it and honestly I wasn't all that impressed. I'm a big fan of Chip Foose's work and all, but I think they seemed to be limited with Chrysler/Mopar parts... but I'm sure they were the ones that footed the bill. That all being said, this was done on the floor of SEMA - so given that, I can appreciate what they did. But I'd love to see what Foose would do with an SRT back in his shop with no limitations.
I am a fan of Foose also - the designs are great, but I have always had an issue with the premise of the show. Take someones car under false pretenses, replace everything down to the chassis while the owner is sitting home stewing - and give him back what essentially IS NOT his or her car. I actually watched an episode a few years ago where this guys dream was to spend his retirement restoring his car. The wife and kids had it "overhauled" and although the car was cool, his response after the initial surprise was "now what am I gonna do". I kinda felt bad for him.
That being said, If you were "overhauled" , and you really didn't want it or like the way it came out, Can you sell it ? Or does the show require that you "show" it at various events for a specified duration of time ?
Not hijacking the thread here, just puttin' a spin on it.
