would you chrome your ride?

Home  \  General Chat  \  would you chrome your ride?

Hi all! Does anyone else here think that chroming a ride ( a fast car would be nice..) is a cool thing? And is it legal anyways? Never gotten around to finding out but I know it'd probably cost a bomb! Cheers..

Ive seen it done on a few cars, its certainly unique but its just obnoxious

Ive also seen one of these in person, have pix of it somewhere, but the whole car was polished to a bright chrome finish, and the stripes were polished to a matte "brushed aluminum" look

It certainly looks cool on this car:

But that is just a concept....

looks good... as long as it's on a nice car, a straight car, and a clean car.

And not in a dull and dreary place like England. Wouldn't the car blind other road users when the sun hits them?

Its a very classic design. There is a reason cars like this...

...all look similar. Long bonnet, seating just above the rear axle, low profile roof etc.... Its called a sports car. You two should meet sometime. :wink2:


There is absolutely nothing you can do to a Bugatti Veyron, including chroming the entire body, that would make that car any more obnoxious. It wouldn't matter if it was painted bright pink with a rainbow on the back of it you would instantly envy the bastard who owned it.
