Green Chili
Owner: Lance McIntosh
Vehicle: '93 Cadillac Fleetwood
City/State: Albuquerque, New Mexico
Club: Uce C.C.
Engine/Drivetrain: Keeping things reliable in the true Caddy tradition, the motor is stock. Lance says that it's ugly right now, so we'll take his word for it.
Body/Paint: The color of this car is certainly the thing that has people wandering over to it at car shows and Lance has Eddie Slepicka of Bent Metal Customs in Portland, Oregon, to thank for that. House of Kolor candy lime green was shot by Eddie who also handled the body straightening choirs.
Interior: The stock beige leather interior is accented with custom-painted candy lime green woodgrain dash, door plates and Billet Specialties steering wheel-one of those subtle things that catch your eye and have you looking for a while.
Sound System: Lance's shop, Show Quality Customs in Albuquerque, kept it simple on the sound system end and installed an Alpine CD player in the dash along with TVs in the headrest and a PlayStation 2 for the gamer in everyone.
Setup: Show Quality Customs also took care of the hydro setup, which consists of a two-pump ShowTime competition setup. Adjustable trailing arms, extended upper A-arms and boxed lower A-arms are just some of the things that Lance's mechanical engineering degree came in handy for. Elsewhere, 8-inch cylinders in the front and 14-inchers in the rear get the "Chili" lifted, while 3-ton front and rear springs keep things suspended with two blocks and four switches making sure that the juice goes to the right place. The frame was partially reinforced and powdercoated by Jayson Fleming of Westside Customs in Portland.
Tires: P155/80-R13 Cooper
Wheels: 13x7 OG wires with green anodized rims
