EDMOND, Oklahoma -

Thunder super fan John Bling drove a 1980 Ford Grenada in high school. In 2011, he transformed the ride in a rolling tribute to the OKC Thunder.

Player pictures from the 2011 team are plastered on the outside. Team memorabilia and merchandise lines the interior. Upholstery has also been covered up with the Thunder logo.

During the team's 2012 run to the NBA Finals, Bling transformed a mini-van into another Thunder-mobile. This year, he's driving his best Thunder creation yet. It's a 1985 Cadillac Limousine.

Once again Thunder players and team colors are displayed on the outside. The inside has one part dedicated to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, along with many unique Thunder items.

"I don't want to be ordinary. I want to extraordinary," says Bling about his Thunder pride.

"I'm just trying to stay Thunder up no matter what," says Bling who produced a rap song about the team.

Tuesday, he and his family are taking the limo to a road game for the first time. In fact, none of the Bling's Thunder rides have been outside the state.

The Edmond resident doesn't fear any backlash from Dallas Mavericks fans because, "Thunder love is everywhere."

Bling says he decided to drive to Dallas after hearing from all the Thunder fans living in the Dallas area wanting to see the car.
