I did'nt know that show was still on, I haven't watched an episode in so long. Anyone know if they ever did a G2? from the pic I'd want to lower the front end a little. where's a video link?

if anything i'd LOVE to see a LEGEND overhauled. atleast chip did classy and awesome cars, instead of the pos's from pimp my ride. no wonder the dude tried ebaying. i bet if chip overhauled a legend it would have a nsx drivetrain, lol just b/c we say it can't be done. haha

I agree chip gave you some flash in your car but a tasteful amount not over doing it and performance mods an all around job unlike pimp my ride just made your car look good except for that impala they did that was probably the cleanest car they did

Why do you think those guys can do something you can't?
All they do is spend the sponsor money to buy premade stuff. I have yet to see anything amazingly custom done on that show... and putting NSX drivetrain in a Legend will be a VERY custom job.

/\ exactly, they have the MONEY to DROP a custom drivetrain like that. thats all it is. plus if/when major modification is gonna be needed those guys are the pro's at it. Yea they can do something I can too but its sure gonna be easier for them with their resources we don't have.

I'd have to beg to differ on that one....

Last I checked, there were no kits available to easily convert a 57 Chevy Bel Air (I believe thats what it was) from a sedan into a coupe....they might have even made it into a convertible....if that cant be considered "amazingly custom" then I dont know what to else to say :dunno:

did they do anything to the mechanical parts? new stereo is ok, new seats are better, body kit is ok, paint is better, rims are ok, new tires are better... what about brakes? did they fix his wiring? any exhaust work? every episode ive seen involves a car that severely needs maintenance and the only work they highlight being done to it is a body kit, annoyingly conspicuous stereos, and a mini bar in the trunk.
