The pie plates were removed. You can't really tell from the pic but the outer part of the wheel and about halfway in is colored blue to match the car - but ofcourse it looks a bit more metallic because it is on the wheels. The center half of the spokes and cap is silver. I took this pic right after I got the car but about 1 yr. later I had the wheels done (some very minor rim rash in a couple of places) and at that time I had the color restored on the wheels. It tends to fade slightly over time (but is very hard to capture in a picture because it is subtle). I think only a couple other PB editions have color tint on the wheels - forgot what years that was but maybe people who own PB editions can weigh in on this. For my color the tinted wheels are very nice and doesn't have a "painted" look. The light metallic blue blends well with the silver wheels and like I said, is subtle but you can tell it is there (just deosn't pick up well in pics).
A more recent pic with current wheels. Coilovers coming soon...only been waiting to be installed for 6 months now...
As a Texan, I believe that this beautiful car should live near to the NM mothership in Dallas, and I would be happy to provide a nice garage space for it should you choose to do so! I'd even be happy to drive it to NM for you wo let it visit
Just an offer...lol

I believe that several digits in the VIN designates the number of your car, e.g., 200th made out of whatever. The 2004 PB had 400 made and at one time I think I figured out where mine was in the line-up from the VIN. Each digit in VIN means something!!
Ohhhhhh I'm going to check mine out ASAP and see what number it is. I'm hoping # 1
Nice tips, guys!!! Thanks!
We have 2-3 NM Editions and the Thundercloud is so beautiful in person against the pimento leather. The drop, wheels and kit Viet has on his just enchances a beautiful car even more. Love the "godfather" of all SC's....the NM!
