    My 2005 Crossfire SRT-6

    Hey what's up everyone!

    First and foremost, I apologize for the lack of pictures. I was an avid Photobucket user for years and had hundreds of pictures on my Photobucket account that of course I no longer have access to. That said, I implore you all to visit my Instagram account (@osshwa) for pictures of the car since just about every picture I've ever taken or had taken of this car can be found there.

    I'll try to keep this short, sweet and to the point. I bought my SRT-6 back in March '14. Prior to the SRT-6 I had a few modified cars including an '88 RX-7 convertible, a '97 M3 coupe, an '07 Cobalt SS and the car that the SRT-6 directly replaced, an '05 Mazdaspeed MX-5. My goal with the SRT-6 was to build something.....different. I've been big into the stance/low car/aggressive fitment scene since 2010 and wanted to apply that look to the SRT-6 since it had never really been done before. Keep in mind that most Crossfire's are driven by 50+ year old men. No i'm not profiling, that's the god's honest truth. I went to Chrysler Nationals at Carlisle for my first time last year at (at the time) 30 years old I was by far the youngest owner there....lol. That said, I don't foresee a lot of elderly gentleman slamming the balls out of their Crossfire's like I did. Anywho, when I bought the car it was a bit of a ******* child. The paint was worn out and oxidized, the headliner was falling off, all of the badges were faded to hell, the plastic trim was chipped/gouged, etc. But I bought it because it had low mileage and was local. It's been a long road bringing this car back to life but i'm excited to have brought it to the level it's at today. Lots and lots of custom work was involved with this car given that Crossfire's don't exactly have a booming aftermarket. For example, the front lip/side skirt extensions are for a differently car entirely, but have been modified to fit my car. Also, the paint isn't OEM (it came factory gloss black). I had the car resprayed Mercedes-Benz Obsidan Black Metallic to pay homage to the SRT-6's sister car, the SLK32 AMG. So the paint is kind of an "OEM+" upgrade of sorts. Anyways, rather than keep blabbering on i'll let the mod list do the talking. And as I mentioned before, my IG (@osshwa) has plenty of pictures to check out if you're interested in seeing it!

    Sweet! The Crossfire is one of the best looking cars in recent history and is really underrated. The SRT version makes it even better!

    Thanks man! One thing alot of people fail to realize is that an SRT-6 is literally a re-bodied MB SLK32 AMG. It shares the same chassis, engine, transmission, etc. as it's MB counterpart. So you get AMG Benz power with a Chrysler price-tag.
