    I saw the best car/truck I have ever seen a couple days ago. It was a fastback mustang on I am guessing a bronco frame. It wasn't lifted anymore than the body lift required ot put the car on and those usually look ugly but this was cool. Had a light on the roof and he was plowing a driveway /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif. Would probably looked real nice with some 33s and agressive tread. Pics look a little photochopped, could be wrong but yeah to me they do.

    The guy that owned it first put all the dents in it. Its also really rusted in parts but who cares its just to drive off road and have fun (geared down to a top speed of 45 mph). We are in the process of cleaning it up and repainting it flat black.

    We have some new stuff to put on it that arn't in the pics. 33 baja claw radial, skid plate. we have to get new wheels for it becuase the claws are 16 and are wheels are 16.5. We are also moving the rear bumper back another foot. We have a brand new convertable top for it to.

    shaggy may have a place for a pic of that /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif i bet you dont have to worry about center of gravity as bad thats for sure, but you still need a roll bar in it.

    ya I made the site to basically host the impala pics. I might finish the site eventually. And if I do finish I may find sombody to host it without banners and popups.
