Dude. You need some sun. Looking a bit zombie-ish yourself.

Great looking car. Will check out the vortex thread looking for detail pics. The window nets are way too poser-ish though.

Cool car!

What music is that? It reminds me of Oblivion or WOW.

You know I like it, I think you spent more than budget though....

Thanks for some kind words gents. I did go over budget. But I still did the majority of the work myself. I am super white... I live in Minnesota :) The nets are now bolted in with a release at the top (they were not in the vid). The music is royalty free somethin somethin.... Sorry we ran out of time on the engine sounds. With a busy job and a one year old it was tough to even find time for the shoot. Tuning in the spring!

It's a car video without car noises, that's like making a porn flick without a sex scene.

I do love the car and video though, re-release with sex added plz.

I had that problem too, until I realized that Vimeo plays them in HD, and my computer sucks. If you click the HD logo you can turn HD off and play in a lower resolution, and that should play much smoother if your computer has problems with the HD.
