    Not my cup of tea, per se, but some of the younger folks might appreciate these. Personally, I'd like any one of those cars... Totally Stock... Stock LOOKING anyway..

    I agree with you on the stock looking part Al, those cars just look silly. If you want to jack something up, get a truck thats what they are built for........

    GIANT waste of money IMO

    If any of you are familiar with where benton harbor michigan is located, I work there and live like 10 mins away. Anyhow there are about 100 of this type of so called cars running around. One particular evening when I was doing a ride along with the local pd, these knuckle heads decided they would shut down a main road to drive like assh&^%s, backwards, stereos pounding and hanging out the windows. All this while recording it for youtube. Needless to say we ruined their fun. They should of all been impounded for indecent exposure. They look so stupid it's rediculous. I love paying for welfare so they can get their rims, paint, and bumps.:lol:

    Holy crap! They look like some of my kids toys. I didn't know they made wheels and tires like that. I wonder what compelled those guys to put McDonald's and Skittles on the sides of their cars.... Personally, I would have gone Jack In the Box and Kit-Kat.

    Agreed a thousand percent.

    I agree with everyone. Those cars are classics, our history and are completely ruined. The young people seem to like them, especially around here, but I will never get used to them. Those rims and tires cost thousands of dollars, and they are usually financed through Rent-A-Center type places for exhorbanent (sp?) interest rates.

    Sometimes when the PI business is slow I do repo's for the local title loan companies and small finance companies and I've had to snatch a few of these. They are almost always parked in the driveways of completely run down houses that smell like old piss with sagging floors, moth-eaten and broken furniture and the kids are filthy and running around in dirty diapers, looking half starved to death. I guess you can figure out where their priorities are.

    Oh, and by the way, I know it is mostly the African Americans who we see in the pictures, but I can tell you from experience, it is pretty well divided down here between blacks and whites.

    Apparently stupidity knows know bigotry.

    I agree with all you guys. While I may be part of the younger generation (18 years old), I can't stand this kind of stuff. I don't like huge blingy rims, rap music or trying to be "gangster", unlike 90% of the other kids around here. If you're going to put a lift on a classic vehicle, why not put it on a truck (like mine :p)? I like my country music, bonfires, chevy trucks, and all that. I wasn't raised on a farm or anything either. It's just what I like.

    Tale that red chevelle (i think?), third picture down on the left. Imagine how it would look with some nice old school rally rims, a nice paint job, no lift, and a nicely built 350. IMO, it would look damn good.

    Thanks man! It's my pride an' joy :lol:. And I've done every single mod myself since it became mine and was completely stock. (Well, it's not officially mine, still have to finish paying my parents for it. But the title will be in my hands in a few months!)

    Sounds like they were trying to copy the idiots out here. They call them Oakland Side Shows and they shut down the freeway by blocking traffic then being stupid

    ...WOW... I'm sorry but if I was driving along and saw someone doing that in the middle of the road where I was trying to drive I would plow into 'em with my bull-bar (I didn't build it just for show haha). Stupid stuff like that just pisses me off.

    Wow. first off, i'm 17 and in this younger generation. personaly, i think all that is just incredibly stupid and selfish (regarding shuting down a dang freeway). and as far as young folk bashing goes, why are they (other than me) so lazy? they've got to be handed money and wont work for it. i live around alot of rich kids (i hate that) who's parents buy brand new porshes and lexuses (lexi?) and have never touched a lawnmower, nor have been within 5 feet of one. I work for my money, buy all my own stuff for my truck, and do all my own work on my truck. i have been the man of our house for the past 9 years and i cant beleive how much more responsibility i have than kids in this generation. sorry for that little rant.

    Ok everyone, remember what the farmer said "to each his own" - I also think they look about as cool as pink socks and a frilly shirt, but they probably think a lifted truck looks crap. I look like the typical "biker" big, bald, (no tats, yet) but i personally wouldn't be caught DEAD on a Harley. I just think paying THAT much money for such OLD technology is a waste & nothing more that a 2 wheel penis extension. but in that I'm the minority - f - it, I LOVE my 2007 KTM Super Duke & would NEVER part with it. But thats just MY opinion.

    BTW the skittles car is, I believe, a mid 70's Impala.
