Virginia Tech RB David Wilson’s Pimped Out Car Is Pretty Sweet (Video)

Late in the Sugar Bowl between Michigan and Virginia Tech, ESPN showed a video of Hokies running back David Wilson’s pimped out ride. It probably was a bad idea, because everyone watching thought the same thing: this was a sure NCAA violation. The Key Play provided us with the picture and some background on the ride:

While at home last January, Virginia Tech running back David Wilson spotted a 1978 Ford Thunderbird sitting in a Danville, Va., back yard, knocked on the stranger’s front door and negotiated a deal to buy it for $2,000.

He then took the vintage car and added about $7,000 in enhancements, including $3,000 for a vinyl interior and a new paint job, another $2,000 for 24-inch rims, $800 for new tires and an additional $800 on a customized stereo system.

“Where I’m from, it’s kind of like everybody my age got one,” Wilson explained after practice Monday, adding that he’d been saving money up for a while and his parents gave him a loan. “It’s the thing to do.”

Here is the video of Wilson showing off his wheels, plus a few more pictures:
