My try on 'pimping' a toy car!
After learning that a friend of mine, Chris owns a 12 years old Proton Saga, I believe that his car should be pimped! After 12 years, Chris' Saga doesn't stand well to the test of time, thus a refurbishment is always a wish for him. Every teenager (including me and Chris) dream of owning a sporty car that grabs attention like the Honda Civic, but of course, we as students can't afford it. Driving Chris' stock Saga into college doesn't make a huge impression to passerby or college students, thus he needs something EXTRAORDINARY to impress, especially the girls!
First, Chris' Saga totally needs a repaint job! Next, alloy wheels! 16-inch, multi-spoke rims would be perfect for a Saga! It's not considered as pimping a car if it's without bodykits! Underbody front, side (with LEDs shining down onto the road!) and rear skirts are needed, as well as a rear spoiler! *greedy* What else? Black tinted windows, chrome door handles and the list goes on!
A turbocharger is needed for the aged engine to haul the heavy chassis of the Saga. This is because certain amount of engine power is lost as it ages, and automatic transmission doesn't help much either!
It would be best if the whole interior can be redesigned! But for now, we'll go for the practical ones. What needed are a sportier designed leather-wrapped steering wheel with flat bottom design, black leather bucket seats with RED STITCHES, instrument panel with red background lighting and definitely a better looking gear knob! A built-in GPS would be great, or make-do with a standalone GPS unit too!
No ride is fun without an exquisite stereo sound system! Since Saga is a sedan with a proper boot, I'm sure that Chris wouldn't mind to sacrifice a small amount of boot space for a whole-new stereo system!
But then, all we can do now is to hope that Chris' car will be chosen to be pimped by Xpax, or maybe by painting a Mini Cooper toy car while waiting!
