I'm too scared to do that! Not to mention I've never owned a car that nice.

Closest I can come is this... No proof but I did hit 80 on the flats with it, didn't slide it though, they wouldn't have appreciated it, Heck I shouldn't have even been running 80 to be honest!



But really, the only reason we had it with us is it was a mobile cooler...



You know, just drive past the roped off area, park it right in front of some official trailer on the starting line and grab some beers! Nothing to see here, move along!




You do see some cool ***** out your windshield up there though!






We will be back again but next time it'll be in my friend's '30 ford that he's building.

LOL, looking at those pics, I remember joking how funny it would be to roll up to the street races in a lowered nissan 240SX with a buick straight 8 in it... That would definitely confuse that crowd!

Jordan started taking pictures of other cars in the desert doing the same thing...but this one that he shot was a bit nicer than mine.



Lol, he went out and romped a 250,000 car through the desert for a photoshoot. Thats kinda like trophy trucks right? hahahah

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, I just found a picture of Andy's future! Literally in so many ways!!!





It was mixed in a thread I was looking at with some suburu pictures. Before you laugh, just know that the guy that fabs up these cars is the elite of the elite and his work is as much art as it is functional! You should see the rally cars he's built!








Yes, that is a coilover in the back!

Nah. I wasnt there for that photo shoot. However, coincicdently, we (me, dani, her family) were headed back from shooting (guns), out by nelson and i saw my buddy (jordan, the photographer) in his integra pulling out of the dry lake bed out by searchlight. I was all "wtf?"

Turns out he was out there shooting the lambo which had already left, and he had finished packing up his equipment.

He passed me on the highway, and thats where we got the picture in my avatar. I see him drive by doing like 75 hanging a freakin 5000 camera out the window haha.

I havent gotten to drive any of the lambo's yet. Back when he lived in town a year ago and did all the photo work for lambo of las vegas, he would need people to transport the cars to different shows and stuff. I swear every time he offered I was in the middle of a hike or something at red rock.

The guy that builds those wagons above, here's his daily driver...






Long travel subi anyone?



Factory bumper and crossmember? LOL



Power's worst nightmare, popping a trunk hatch to see a hole this big!!!






Don't stress though Power, it can be fixed...





Need a little chassis structure?





And yes, they built the front end to equally match and take the abuse of your normal DD as well. LOL



Pretty sure that frame plating isn't a factory option.







Point being, I suck at fab work!




Teaser of one of the actual rally race cars that dude has built...










metal porn...

It'll never work!!! It's not a jeep so therefore it's impossible!

Merrick went around the block last night in my hooptie though, rides too damn smooth for what it is! Something must be wrong!



Marn, I could picture you in something like this with a gun rack on the back window...

I would ask and not have a second thought about it! You get used to rejection.

Sucks that it won't work! The biggest downside to owning that instead of a Jeep is that not only will it not work but I'll be forcefully removed from the forum for no longer owning a Jeep!

Swap the front bumper on that truck for Marn to something with a big cow catcher and it would fit right in in my hometown.

Just start using your welder more often and they'll let you hang out, they'll even bring you sodas when they meet up with you. It's proven fact!
