Car Spotlight>> Mister Ominous

SEMA is a trade show which exists solely so that people can impress other people. Be it with their booth set ups, car builds or flashy after parties, SEMA is always dressed to impress. Though not everyone will be able to –especially with the hundreds of cars on display. So to have a show stopping car, it either must've had pixey dust sprinkled on it or be built by some truly inspired and insane people.

This Cadillac is one of those cars.

The car started off originally as a 1960 Cadillac Coupe. And from there, it was chopped, shaved, dropped, painted by Teo Garcia and was crafted into the work of art it is now by the guys from Sisco Fabrications.

Every single corner of this car has been customized, fabricated and refabricated. 

The interior saw its front and rear seats reupholstered and a big modern looking center console now runs down the whole of the interior. How about those cup holders for each seat?

To get the car as low as it sits, an AccuAir airbag suspension kit was used.

The attention to detail on the car was staggering. Just imagine how long it must've took to fabricate the grill alone.

The rear fins originally had tail lights at that tip, but it has since been filled in for an overall smoother look.

The word "stance" is a word that flies around the automotive internet like ants in a sugar factory. But stance isn't all about an extremely low ride height and wheel fitment, it's about the overall presence and feel of a car. If there's one thing this Cadillac is sure to have, it is some truly ominous stance.

Having presence can be a heavy thing. Luckily, the Cadillac is powered by a 454 Chevy big block. 

It may be hard to tell, but this car was one of the hardest cars to photograph at SEMA for the simple fact that there was always a crowd around it. So getting a clear shot was a test of patience. And if the throngs of people surrounding the car at all times means anything, its the simple fact that this car set out what it was created for: to impress.

This car is smooth as glass.



The most amazing thing about this car to me is the fact that it is black. If you think about how much time and effort went into channeling and sectioning and shaving this car, all the fab work that went into it, that much again probably went into the body/prep work. It's one thing to do all these things to car, but it's a whole other to make sure every panel is perfectly straight before paint, especially on a black car where any imperfection on the body or paint work will jump out at you.



How well a paint job is executed is the first thing I look at on car. To me it's a sign of how much attention to detail was paid to the whole build. I have nothing but respect for this car and the people that built it.



Now somebody hate on it...

I would love to have this car- just cruising on a sunny day with your friends- massive amount of respect towards the sheer amount of man-hours to create such a work of art
