Question. Why does your display sign show a 2001 C5? Also, you're missing the Marine Corps "toilet seat" shooting badge. So named because it is the lowest shooting badge to qualify for.

Here's "Silver Fish" in all of its dust cover glory! Bone stock (because I live in California) c'ept for the license plate and tint.

Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.

Not even a "hey, that looks nice", but you're ready to tear it apart with what's not there, etc. Jeez. And that's what you got out of this? Sorry I posted now. Maybe someone here other than yourself may appreciate the effort and sentiment.

First of all, I'm not missing anything. No where does it say it's an all inclusive display of every badge. Reason why you don't see all the badges is quite simple.............no room to display. A lot of the badges have a "senior (star)" and "master (wreath around star)" on top of the badge to denote advanced proficiency, would love to display them all, just not prudent.

The C5 board is the forerunner of this display and you may not see it, but it has "decommissioned" in white letters scrawled across the top at an angle. The C5 has been in many shows for years around the mid Atlantic area, garnering many awards for the display, not the car.

Feel free to pick it apart some more.

GEEEZ! I was just asking a question! Man, get your panties all up in a bunch over nothing! Quit being all sensitive! The thread is supposed to be about cars that have been modified to stand out at shows. Did you read my initial post? Your car looks pretty stock so it really isn't what I was looking for when I started the thread. That's not knocking your car or anything, just stating the obvious.

So quit taking it all personal. I was NOT knocking your ride.
