Here you go, this is from the 2001 SEMA show. Looks like it might actually be for sale. Style Imagineering built the car, we provided some parts.

Neon on the intercooler, yellow tinted windows, ridiculously OTT billet shock tower brace, big tall shiny wheels, TV screen in the trunk - check. But check the metal widebody.

In reply to Keith Tanner :

Wow.  

Nothing looks worse than a widebody with wheels that don't fill it out.   Sadly, looks like it still has the same wheels 21 years later.

Does one have to sharpen the mouse trap before getting into the car?

I kinda like the widebody, even though I originally read it as "mental widebody".

I remember having to hook up the neon on a customer car after working on it. I felt so dirty. 

I wish I had a picture of that car, it was tooner personified. Purple with a Veilside body kit...
