    Sorry bout the weird ass title.. didnt know what else to call it.. damn i havent been here for a while and i miss it!!

    anyway.. as some of you might have already seen the valvoline commercial with the red SN95 Cobra, well the sound that car is making, is not really it's sound

    They used my car for sound and used his car for the vid.. here are pics from that day

    Are you serious? How did you land that? I saw the comercial I was pretty excited because you dont see many sn95s on TV.

    I was working for a company called Picture Car Warehouse before and they called them in and asked if they had any 96+ Cobras O0

    So they (Picture car) gave my number to the them (valvoline) and they gave me a call

    I told them what i had so they liked it and later on i found out my competition was a 2007 Saleen :eek:

    Me, being myself said i'll race the guy to make up the final decision lol but they said no.. it's okay.. we need an older car to show that our oil will help older cars last longer

    So anyway, with that being said.. they loved my mods but the problem was i had an H-PIPE and they wanted an X-PIPE so i went to my muffler guy and told him the situation

    He said he'll charge $700 to make the 3 inch X-pipe.. so they paid him the 700 and i got a $1,000 for me taking out of my own time to get the exhaust done :bunny3:

    So now i have a 3 inch x-pipe and 3 inch h-pipe

    Though they didnt want to use my car in the filming process because it would throw the viewer off with the car looking like 2 or 3 different cars at different angles (hence why you never see a color changing car in commercials)

    Saw it last night and it is an awesome commercial. I was yelling at everyone in the room to shut the hell up and they all think I am nuts but your car sounds bitchin man. Too bad they couldn't use your car for the shoot but at least they used another sn95.

    Red is the best color anyways lol j/k!

    The red cobra was alright.. his exhaust (no offense if he sees this) didnt sound good AT ALL to me...

    They were raping the shit out of his car.. turning it on... turning it off.. revving over and over again..

    I just sat in mine and gave it a few revvs.. then did one WOT revv and hurt the guy's ears that had the earphones on O0

    If it's in the dvd (When i get it) i'll post it up lol
