I can appreciate skill just as much as the next guy, and yeah this car took some skill... but REALLY? Mustard and Mayo on purple paint? thats a fail.

From the little I can see, the interior looks nice, as does the paint job.

Mee too - appreciate different looks and others opinions. Those rims are just plain stupid though - renders the car unparkable with curbs.

Kudos for the work, it COULD have been a nice looking car. Just poorly executed.

The quality of work may be impressive, but the work itself is just a disgrace to the nameplate. I'm all for customization, and making a car represent you and your personality, but not when it represents your pants hanging below your knees and wearing fake ass gold chains.....dawg.

Alfredo, a slab is a style of car in the same way that "lowrider" or "tuner" is a style. They're real common in the south, especially in houston. I'm pretty sure theyre mostly with old big body cars from like the 60s and 70s such as a Continental, Eldorado, Impala, maybe some kind of Buick, whatever. They are known for having bright ass candy colors, usually crazy interiors such as ostrich, vogue white wall wheels wraped on some "swangas" which are rims in which the center hub sticks out a lot. other slab things include pop trunk, a sign on the inside of the trunk lid, crazy door hinges, subs, lighting, fifth wheel on the trunk. listen to a couple bun b songs, he explains it haha. Thats pretty much what i know about slabs. if theres more or if i said anything wrong let me know htx and jbru

Those are...

17" Orangutang Swangas.

And they stick out TOO DAMN MUCH.
Those are classless.
But yeah, the interior is sweet, and the paint is nice.
Along with the suicide lambos. I love the door handle relocation.

To each his own.
I would love my Impala to look like this, but candy red.
And on 20" regular Swangas.

Rear doors look useless, unless your one skinny mo&%erF*&%er. Wheel's...NOT. Guess some guy's taste is all in thier mouth.
