Default My Trip to the SMS Supercars for Molly's Birthday

Thought I'd share some photos with fellow members of today's trip to SMS...

I brought Molly a cake on behalf of everyone here... she was quite pleased...




The SR race car in the lobby, and that's the very sweet Nicolette in the mural...






Some shop pics... the story on this Molly Pop 570X will come in a couple of weeks, but the paint job was amazing...




The complementary pinstripes on the doors and dash of the SMS Supercars are a nice touch...




She's almost done... getting ready for a photo shoot tomorrow...




The "Bruce Almighty" Saleen S7. Steve is very proud of the S7 program. Do you know the secret name for it? "Project Molly," of course!






The SMS 570 and 570X line in the main building of the SMS campus...






Some 2010 Mustangs getting ready for transformation...




More of the 570 and 570X line...




Some members' vehicles in for warranty work and upgrades...




It was a good afternoon, and it was fun seeing Molly, Liz, Steve, Sean and Clint and the rest of the SMS team -- especially Spring! A quick shot of the main building before I headed back to the office...

"Some members' vehicles in for warranty work and upgrades..."

*sigh* that angle reminds me that I need to sit down with some metal polish and go over the stainless exhaust tips. :-> Anyone have a good way of putting a protective coating of some sort on them?

Gotta say, that yellow still makes my heart beat faster! Can't wait to pick her up...

Chris.

My PJ would fit well in this corner.

I'd say an excellent chance! By Knott's, those particular cars should be at dealers across the country, and likely in the hands of happy owners.

Steve appreciates everybody's patience, but he told me when we finally see what they've been working on, we'll all be saying "whoa!" And it won't be just a show car, it'll be a finished production car with the line going in full swing.

Thanks for sharing those pictures. I have two questions though. What is the Charger doing in the building? and whats the deal with the Challenger with mud splatters doing in the assembly line? I love the picture of Nicolette in the Challenger in the lobby, there needs to be a poster of that...

The Charger and the Challenger with mud splatters would be "SpeedLab" customer cars getting work done.

It seems you're not the only one who wants that poster with Nicolette.

Hey Jim! I am still open to bringing a car down to that show we discussed if so desired. Don't forget to pass that on, and Ronda say's the Molly project would be perfect! LOL!
