This came into the shop yesterday. Personally I find it a little amazing and quite a bit overdone.

Big pimpin'.






Those are 305/30/24 tires on that thing. I have no idea what sort of suspension he's done, but I can't imagine what it's like going over train tracks.

I guess he's going for a blend of style+offroad. Pain in the ass to get in and out of the car.

I just don't understand people sometimes.

Where do you work? It looks like a wood/mill/something but it dosn't look like a garage thats for sure. Yet you get cars like this in it?

I'm not hatin' precisely, I just think it's a little overboard :) Maybe if he had a nice system in it I'd be more willin' to give props. As it is, it's just the 24s, some pod component speakers, and an alarm.

I work at as the computer guy at an audio shop. For now. Yeah, the back garage is nutso. My boss has all sorts of crap back there ranging from wood to PVC to metal conduit to just about any sort of lifting equipment you could desire. Including a lift for to work on my car :D

thats tight. out here (sf bay area) we call those scrapers. i saw a particularly nice one last week. it was a 80ish impala with candy apple paint and pretty much the same rim. those things are as high as most suv's with those rims.

lol. :disappoin ^^
building a good lookin race car is way more expensive.

When you're into bling the only rhyme and/or reason is the bigger and flashier the better.
Your money goes to only what you can see and hear, there is no suspension work done to a car like this. The only object is to cram as big of a wheel as you can in to the wheel well.

There's a 96 cutlass I see around here with like 22's or something. It sits almost 2 feet off the ground but he thinks he's a pimp. :dunno:

...whatever floats your boat I guess...

Can or does any one want to try and count how many spokes are on those?

I'm going to guess and say 100!
