About “Vivid LS”

This car is a 1 of a kind 2002 Lincoln LS V8. It is a real show stopper.

I have owned it for a little over a year and it has been a show car since June. I took it to about 30 shows last year and won 35 awards.

I have a few plans for it and will attend as many shows as possible this coming year.

I have landed 4 sponsors on my own by busting my ass to make the LS the way it is.

Dunlop Tires
Street FX Underbody Lighting
Umnitza Lighting (Halo Kits)
Stoner Cleaning Supplies

I have about 5 more in the works.

About “Project M”

This was my 1999 Chrysler 300M, also known as Project M!! The scope of the project is simple, to make this car do something that is was not necessarily built to do, be a quick street car, and a decent drag strip car, while being in the lap of luxury!! We have pushed the limits of the stock PCM programming. Now, we have upgraded that as well.

This is what the car has done at the track. These results were reached on 11/18/2006 at Edgewater Raceway Park in Cleves, OH.
Best 60': 2.099
Best 1/4 Mile ET: 15.014
Best Trap Speed: 90.84
We ended the 2006 season .015 seconds away from the 14's!! We will break through the barrier in 07...stay tuned!!!

**UPDATE** this car was totaled in an accident on 2/21/2007.

RIP My Faithful Steed!!
