    Max Damage I'm thinking about it!

    I see you have the Monitor AC? Does that work? My GS cal car has one also...

    Do tell the story on the exhaust flames too please.

    I can't remember what brand the A/C is, but I'll take a peak and let you know. Yes it works good. The flamethrowers are a Hot Licks kit, they're the "hot" mod I hinted at earlier:

    Have been admiring your car and the mods/upgrades you have done from afar since you got it. When I saw the black one I thought immediately about your ride...yours is pretty hot (even without the flames)

    Oh, forgot about this part. I also painted the fender sections in the engine compartment yesterday. The exhaust tips were hanging a little lower than I wanted so took it to the exhaust shop my buddy works at and I did a little undercarriage detailing while it was in the air (and yes, I realize mostly blacking everything out is basically frowned upon. But I drive this car. My engine also shouldn't be "purple".).

    Took my cousin and one of the kids from work on a 400 mile backroads road trip to my favorite show and cruise of the year, Car d'Lane in Idaho. The flame thrower pic was taken there as well.

    Spent a lot of time inside the last couple days because of the heat, but managed to take the Caddy out for a really good drive after running errands in it today. And I realized just now, staring at it and having a beverage, it's a total keeper. You just get in it and go, in total comfort, for as far as you want to go. No issues, no oddities. And it looks alright doing it. 2nd favorite I've ever owned and I've had a few.

    Nice car. Looks like the flame is one of the highlights of the show.

    Apparently when they tell you to run "straight through" mufflers with your flame thrower kit, they know what they're talking about :eek::D. Definitely the loudest firework I heard all 4th of July weekend when it popped while showing a few friends the effects in the some 24" Thrush perforated packs and put in the original position. Car sounds wicked now, super deep toned, and probably added a legit 20-30 hp. And we chuck even bigger flames now:D

    Road trip in the smoke yesterday. Came across this beauty at one of my stops. That's one of the smoke jumper camps in the background of the second pic.

    Family was down for my cousin's wedding a couple weekends ago. Little brother Layne (alaskagn) and I took the Cad on a 5 day, 1000 mile road trip, visiting his friends and some other parts of our family, hitting little towns and cities along the way. Car never missed a beat, and got driven in a pretty big rain storm one day. Surprisingly it didn't melt like some guys think their cars will.
