Marn, it's all personal opinion but I do not like, they look cheap! Liked your other wheels better. For the record, I'm not even a fan of black wheels either! I even said it to Merrick just a few hours ago that I don't like black wheels but they looked good on yours! Just saying! But you're still welcome to park it in my driveway. I should be around most the day sat and sun working on my hoopties.

Andy, no, no spoked wheels. If I had my way, it would be rolling on BIG wheels that are like half way tucked in the wheel wells. Rear would be fully tubbed and the front would pretty much not have any wheel wells and the tires would run just below the hood while at normal ride height. But flip a switch and it would lean and lift a tire on command! If only it would get 30+ mpg too!





Not sure who your guys idols are but this is one of mine. This is Destry Abbott, he's a Phoenix local that's 40y/o. Been a pro dirt bike racer most of his life and been loyal to one brand for just about his entire career. He's an amazing role model for kids and someone most adults could look up to. His teen kids post constantly about how amazing their dad is on facebook and the family pictures that are constantly posted by him and his family sure look like they mean what they say. Anyways, I thought these were some badass pictures of him training today on his new bike to get ready for the 4 x-games rounds he'll be racing this year along with the endurocross series. Even if you've never ridden a dirt bike, I'd think you could appreciate these shots!







Tossing a 200 pound dirt bike around like it's a bicycle!!!!






This is a dude that got hit by lightening a few years back while riding and according to his son that was right behind him and witnessed it was able to gain consciousness and actually ride his way back out of the boonies to meet help. This dude is a badass!!! Yet, when you see him at the track he rolls up in an average looking ride and will chit chat with anyone and everyone just like any average joe out having fun doing what they love the most.

cheap schmeap!

This baby was top of the line back in 73, it was the original 'luxury utility vehicle' and it came with all the options and only the best items! Back then hub caps were the greatest thing because you didnt have to see lug nuts!

Lol, no hard feelings, its okay, its not what you like, it's what I like.....and apparently everybody other than you on the internet hahaha.


haha, this is a stock 1973 hub cap:


I prefer the dog dish style though.

Its okay, the black rims made it look beefy or tough or something, but these make it look more vintage, and alot more original.

Thats how I explain my style. "stock but not"

now it looks 100% stock, except its got a little lift and beefy tires. Everything else is stock!

on a side note about luxury, There's a guy on IFSJA who has the original paperwork from his 88 grand wag, and back in 88, it was $29,000 for a freakin jeep! I'm tellin ya, these things were expensive, and luxurious!

speaking of hydro's, one of my buddies in high school put hydro's in an old Buick Regal. He layered the batteries in the back so that it would let him do a three wheel while going straight up the road. It was funny seeing a bunch of white guys with hydros. The best part was that we cruised down to the ghetto in St Pete right after the riots. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Pet...a_riot_of_1996

Hey, since most crime occurs at night, we should institute a sunset curfew! No one may leave their homes after sunset! You can't do that! It's punishing everyone for the actions of the few! It's infringing on others' right to go wherever they want whenever they want! People just don't think about stuff and how important decisions are!

100% agree! The 2nd Amendment was written by men who threw off the chains of tyranny for men to keep government in its proper place...as a defender of liberty, not a grantor of security.

When does this curfew end? I have to be at work at 0500 tomorrow. The sun won't be up yet so I think I should just sleep in!

Ends at sunrise! You get to sleep in! Oh, and those who like to frequent night clubs, they're going to be out of business(gun shops/manufacturers) because the curfew law prevents people from being out after dark!
