What do you get when you combine Star Wars and West Coast Customs? Vader's Ride!
Airing on the Velocity channel on Apr 15 at 09:00 pm EST will be "Inside West Coast Customs" with where they will create a customized Star Wars themed 2012 U.S. built VW Passat. The one hour show will take you from renderings to the real thing. Here is the episode description:
"The Force is strong with Ryan on this build. Lucas Films has asked West Coast Customs to build Darth Vadar's ultimate ride, and it's a dream come true for this Star Wars fan. Ryan channels his inner Jedi to come up with a car that will please."
ORACLE Lighting was happy to assist in this build and help "Vader's Ride" stand out with custom RED LED accents under the car, in the custom trunk, and even inside of the wheels! In addition to all of that our team built a custom set of LED headlights like nothing we have ever done before. The great thing about working with WCC is that they take us out of our comfort zone when it comes to designs.

Just watched that on tv last night... It was pretty sweet even though its a vw passat... Id rock the sh!t outta that car lol
the lights were cool. the work was top notch.
but its a VW. A freaking VW. Dark Vader is not riding in a VW, period, lol. Did the car have subs? I didn't see that part of the build.
I want to see WCC do another magnum, 2 door if possible.srt. If I hit the lotto, I'm buying an srt8 and sending it straight to them with the condition that I can help on every part of the build.
Ryan chose it cause the commercial with the little kid starting it with the "force"
Coming to you guys with any custom lighting work in the future.
I saw the episode..It was soo F'n Schweet..You guys defintiely did an awesome job on those lights. There was so many styling ques that I want to incorporate in my ride... one day!!! how much does those new LED strips go for?

Sick Sick Sick!!!
Nothing wrong with VW in my books. I hate to say it but germans make good cars. I dont mind driving my girls passat at all. for a 2002, It is in great shape. Engine runs strong, steering is nice and tight. No complains at all. Good thing i dont have to work on it though. That part does suck!
