CarfaceOwner: David SandovalVehicle: '96 Cadillac FleetwoodCity/State: Phoenix, ArizonaClub: Phoenix Prime C.C.
Engine/Drivetrain: The stock 350-c.i.d. LT underwent some modifications to increase its performance and appearance.
Body/Paint: Being a professional painter at Roosevelt Auto Body in Tempe, Arizona, David knew that no one else was going to perform the prep and paint on his car. He used a "secret concoction" of orange, reds and purple, and then called on celebrated pinstriper "Bugs" of Gilbert, Arizona, and muralist Tom at T-Step Printing in Tempe to finish the job with fine-line brushwork and murals featuring Al Pacino's "Scarface" character with some seductive femme fatales in various states of undress.
Interior: It was a big day at Big Dave's Customs in Phoenix when they rolled out the newly reupholstered Fleetwood with its butterscotch leather seats, fiberglass dash and door panels, custom striped door panels and orange carpet.
Sound System: A Kenwood Excelon head unit sends the signal to JL Audio amps and speakers, including 12-inch subwoofers. Soundwerks in Tempe gets the credit for the system.
Setup: As featured in the July '06 "Dumps" section, the custom hydraulics setup featuring Red's whammy pumps was hooked up by Leonard and Craig at Hoppers Hydraulics in Phoenix. The three-month project features Delta dumps, 8-inch (front) and 10-inch (rear) cylinders, 4-ton springs, four switches, six solenoids, four batteries, tubular battery racks and a custom round cooling filter that keeps the oil from boiling. The 2-inch "fat boy" blocks are plumbed in 31/48-inch tubing and hooked up with fiberglass and painted panels. Pete's Custom Metal Finishing in Phoenix chrome plated the setup mingling in the trunk with the audio components.
Wheels: 14x7 Dayton with powdercoated spokes
