Shockwave Customs exhibit pics from 7/16 - 7/18

I was not able to make it to the Chicago Auto Show last weekend, but I was still able to see some quality customized vehicles at an exhibit set up by Shockwave Customs from Friday, July 16th to Sunday, July 18th at the Donald E. Stevens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

Shockwave Customs is located in Frankfort, IL and is one of the best vehicle detailers in the United States of America. The company is listed as one of the 50 best retailers in the country by Mobile Electronics Magazine.

The reason why Shockwave Customs is rated so highly by their peers is due to their precision in detailing. Here are a few pictures of their handiwork.

As you can see from the first picture, Shockwave Customs is not out here playing games when they customize their vehicles. The side view is tremendous. The orange candy paint on this car looks even more amazing due to adding the black racing stripe along the bottom of the door. The orange and black pattern accentuates the orange rims and the tires.

The doors are definitely the focal point because the doors open up vertically to make this car look like a condor. The LED lighting accentuates the beige color throughout the inside of the vehicle.

I took a picture of the front of the Chevrolet so that you would be able to see how well Shockwave Customs lowered this vehicle. The front spoiler protects the car and the driver from serious damage of potholes. I apologize for the photo being a bit blurry, but you get the point that I am conveying.

This red Porsche is one of Shockwave's best show pieces they possess. The red candy paint makes this Porsche even more luxurious. The side panel with the Shockwave Customs logo along the bottom of each door works as good advertising for the company.
White Pontiac FirebirdTaken by Author

Out of all of the pictures I took of the vehicles last weekend, this white Pontiac Firebird was my absolute favorite from Shockwave Customs. During the 1980's, this classic vehicle was one of the highest-selling cars in the world. However, interest waned in the vehicle which resulted in Pontiac shutting down the production of the Firebird about 20 years ago.

Nevertheless, classic car enthusiasts still enjoy this vehicle. From the above picture, you can see why there are still fans out there of the Firebird. Shockwave Customs went all out with this customization with tinted glass windows, custom headlights, LED lighting, and white candy paint with gold trim on the front grill, on the side windows, and on the rims. As an added touch, they also souped up the spoiler in the back.

I took a picture of the back of the car so that you can also see that Shockwave Customs also customizes sound systems as well. For this maroon vehicle, they added vertical installation to the trunk of the car so that everyone could receive a full view of the sound system. Shockwave Customs added a couple of subwoofers along with a couple of amplifiers. The LED lighting gives the vehicle a clean, symmetrical look.

If you are looking to contact Shockwave Customs so that they can soup up your car as well, then you can either call them at (815) 469-9141 or visit them at 9565 W. Lincoln Highway in Frankfort, IL. They are open on Mondays through Saturdays between 9 AM CST and 6 PM CST. Shockwave Customs is closed on Sunday because they deserve to rest after putting all of these customizations together on a weekly basis.
