This is, by far, the pimpest car I have ever owned. It's so unique and so far off that it is cool. I'm thinking of ways I can fix-up this car, including adding some spinner hub caps, a steering-wheel cover to match the seats, and perhaps a buddy Jesus doll to stick next to my angel.

Missing from the images are dice on the wheels lock knobs, on the valve stems, and on the license frames.

This will be my everyday driver from now on. The car is in excellent mechanical condition, interior is alright, and body is rust-free. It will suffice. However, would you ever believe me if you saw me in this thing that I had an elise in the garage? :D

MW,

Did you buy this pimp mobile? You need to get some spinner hub cabs fast. Maybe even some flames on the hood.

I like what you've done with the seat covers, and the steering wheel is quite nice.

Pondering whether Shinoo will offer those seat covers for the elise.

Definately get the chromed, chain steering wheel!! Go straight to the dentist and get one or two front teeth done in gold.

And we'll need pictures of that, too! :)

I'm liking the seat covers. This car has style. Not good style, but style...

Exactly my point. I could have bought a typical honda civic, but that would be boring. This I can play with. It's hysterical.

Do you think this is the first sign of madness? See what this elise wait thing is doing to me!

this pales in comparison.
So true. We in the FIAT club recognise our inability to function in a normal society. I even know club members who own more than 10 fiats. Although, at any given time only 1 might be working.

Hmmm....:eek: :rolleyes: ;)

Maybe I should add a pimp/ho line of apparel? MW, ship those seat covers to Wicked Weasel. I'm sure they could fabricate a couple thousand of their suits from your covers. I'd be happy to pimp 'em...

Don't forget to add the thingy to the steering wheel so you can hook it and turn the wheel so that your palm spins over the rotator knob (can you tell I have no idea what it's called.)

Hmmm, very nice, Lillie !

You might want to consider getting a spare B210, for parts !:p

Cheers, Mike

P.S. I really like the fact that you upgraded to the dash angel with the moving wings - my dash angel has only the fixed wings...

Babak, let me demonstrate my age, they were called suicide knobs. And I remember them well.
Now where did I leave that Geritol?

Thank you for the clarification. Forget the Geritol take I-caps. :D

In my time (let's not go there), they were called "necker knobs". Power steering was unheard of then and, with your arm around your girlfriend (no bucket seats then either), it was extremely difficult to turn the steering wheel very far with just your left hand. Thus, the necker knob.

You know with the seats in the Elise so close it'd be like having a bench seat. Except that s/he will have to do the shifting to keep the arm around the neck. :D
