Hey Everyone,

My name is Blair and I live in Los Angeles. Thanks so much to whoever is responsible for this site. You've all given me a lot of valuable insight about this incredible car.

I bought my 300 C just over one month ago. The car came as a fully-loaded black 300C. Like a lot of us, I wanted to give it my own special spin. My goal was to create something that looks like it could've been a special version offered by Chrysler.

What I came up with is what I call the "Tuxedo Edition". I can't tell you how nervous I was about taking a brand new car, and completely redoing it. I realize the results may not be for everyone, but for me, they're just what I wanted.

I chose to two-tone the car. I haven't seen anyone do it exactly like this. I wanted to play-up the Bentley look by doing this. I think it works.

I pulled the center seat inserts and replaced them with leather that matched the darker gray of the interior. That color just carries over from elsewhere in the interior. We perforated that leather with a Mercedes perforation. Then I designed a logo which uses both the Chrysler wings and the 1956 Chrysler 300 script. We had that design digitized and then stiched into the leather panel. Though you can't see it, the same was done with the backseats.

I just got it back from the exhaust shop yesterday. I went with Flomasters. The roar is incredible and I love it.

Anyway, I just wanted to share with everyone what I've chosen to do with my 300. I hope you like it. These are just great cars.

Best to everyone,

Blair

Hey Blair, Lookin' good!!! I especially like the absent door mouldings, although with such a wide-bodied car, I worry what my doors would look like after a few parking lot encounters. Your look is extremely bold yet tastefully done. You said it yourself... it may not be for everyone, but for YOU, it's just what you wanted. That's really all that matters... well done neighbor!

Very nicely done ! that paint scheme is actually mimicking the maybach which is a 300k dollar car so that look is definitly classic. Again Very nice....

B, I like it a lot. The quality of your paintwork is exceptional! I love the two tone interior as well. Those rimes are twenty two inch DUB shorelines right? Anyway enjoy your very different and sharp " C "!

Blair, I have said it before but you guys in the US are an inspiration :)

I find it amazing that you shell out your "hard earned" on the car and then set about pouring money into all the mods.

Your car looks just great and surely would have remained unique if you had not shared your ideas with the world on this forum :rolleyes:

Great package and attention to detail. Enjoy your ride.

I give you a thumbs up on the car and I give you two thumbs up on being a Texan in LA. I'm a Texan in Japan right now. :D
