DVR Alert: West Coast Customs' VETT.I.AM Custom Corvette Project
by Keith Cornett
West Coast Customs kicked off season two of their show on the new Velocity network with a project built around a custom 1958 Corvette for the Black Eye Peas’ Will.I.Am. If you missed it, you’re not alone, but the good news is that after consulting my TV guide, it looks like the final episode of this project will be shown on Sunday at 8:00 pm EST. You’ll want to set your DVRs now because this looks like a really cool project.
The VETT.I.Am Corvette features a 1958 Corvette fused with the modern amenities of a 2008 Corvette. The front end was custom hand-fabricated with custom “White Wall” wheels and inside, the interior is from a 2008 Corvette. An integrated touch screen computer and West Coast Customs’ sound system were also included in the custom buildup.
The shop was made famous for its custom builds on the MTV show Pimp My Ride and TLC’s Street Customs. Check out Inside West Coast Customs, Sunday at 8:00 pm EST on Velocity.
