The stylist who penned the Ford GT supercar had a different job on this week’s run of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Camilo Pardo joined shouting head Ty Pennington and the rest of the crew of laborers, contractors and hangers-on to rework the home of the Peter family of Queens, N.Y. The Guyanese family, now living in America, lost their home to fire in 2004 and had been living in the burned-out shell. Pardo joined in with the effort to design a bedroom specifically for 21-year-old son Monesh, an aspiring car designer. Pardo put together bedroom furniture derived from the Ford GT parts bin, including a desk chair made from a GT seat and a lamp made from one spare supercar headlamp, forever earning the envy of Peter’s brothers and more likely, the dudes over at Popular Mechanics. The room also got wallpaper made of Ford GT designs and original artwork from Pardo’s collection. The family also received a 2007 Expedition EL from the show.
