There is one thing that not many automotive enthusiasts talk about but it is a widely-known fact that they love their rides and are proud of the changes they've made to customize it. Pride is a interesting trait. It comes along with accomplishing something or someone else being accomplished. It also shows up when a person joins a club to hang out with other like-minded enthusaists. Brian Fry from Fresno, California owns this 2006 Chrysler 300 and he is a Member of Negative Camber. This club is more than a group of friends with a similar interest. When the chips are down, these men and women come together to help eachother in any way possible. Brian's 300 exudes his own pride in his NC membership and this group of extraordinary people with a club logo taking the place of the Chrysler logo on the front grille. He went to the SEMA Show in 2004 and saw a Chrysler 300 finished and had to have one. So he bought one and has been having fun with it ever since. A fellow club member taught him to always keep it clean and classy which has resonated in this custom build.

    The car was dropped down to the asphalt using an air bag suspension setup consisting of two Universal Air Suspension Aero Sport 9-inch air bags and two Universal Air Aero Sport 7-inch air. The air delivery is made using two Viair 480c compressors a 200psi pressure switch, eight blow-proof 1/2-inch air solenoid valves, a hand-held 7 switch box, as well as D.O.T. approved fittings and hoses for front, back, and side-to-side controls. It also has a stainless 5-gallon air tank and a set of billet front/rear cups. Installation was completed by Universal Air Suspension. The car now sits down over a set of 22x10-inch Foose Nitro 5 Wheels wrapped in 265/30/22 Nexen tires.

   Before the custom club logo could be added to the grille, Brian's car needed a new paint scheme to change it from factory to full-custom. That task was handled by Don Valenzuela at Valens Autobody and the painter was Tommy Gomez. Brian chose the Viper Blue and a large metalflake was added into the paint as well as into the Viper Silver for the other half of the car. It makes for a great color combination with a nice 1/8th inch Orange stripe to split up the other colors.

   This Chrysler's interior couldn't stay the same if it was going to grab any attention away from the exterior of the car so Brian brought the 300 to Daniel Arevalo at Deez Unique Interior in Sanger, California to add gray leather and blue suede. Now his ride is a little more comfortable on those long trips from Fresno to wherever his car show quests take him.
