The WCC HHR Boasts Massive Rims, Massive Plasma Screens and Massive Audio

Chevy's HHR hadn't even hit the show stand yet and a California chop shop had modified it, prior to displaying it at the 2005

West Coast Customs, the customizer that is regularly featured on MTV's "Pimp My Ride", did the dirty work, chopping the roof, adding roll pans, a unique front fascia with blacked-out mesh grilles, massive multi-spoke rims and low-profile rubber.

A "West Coast Customs" graphic caps off the modified cargo area, backlit in cool blue to accent the interior motif and exterior paint scheme.
