and my opinion too, those rims are terrible, make a car look like
a train car, and if you check out chip foose the first thing he draws
are huge rims, i have not ever seen him redue a car with traditional
tires, it realy ruins the look of the car, i have seen those tires
blow out and the tire flys off like a blower belt and the guy is
ridding on that huge rim, oh well :?

Those big rims are all the rage here in Memphis, impalas, crown vics, lincoln navigators, cutlass supremes you name it and they gotem on there.
Their motto is the bigger the better, kinda like the MR T gold chains of yeteryear.
Landon worked on a cutlass supreme with 24's, he ended up having to put 513 gears in to make it drive halfway decent....lol 8)

Ya'll remember when they used to stick out of the fender by about 2'? Maybe they figure that this is a little bit easier on the wheel bearings.

I concur totally Signs. The thing is... Chip Foose at least lowers the cars, tubbs them, does killer body/paint, & the end result is a great custom such as a 67 Mustang FB that looks modernized. It may not be our cup of tea, but at least it looks good & is done well.

Then you have these 2 Chevelle dudes... what can be said about them??? THERE MUST BE A NEW LAW ENACTED THAT PROTECTS CHEVELLES FROM POTENTIAL MOLESTERS... "HB 64- 72" preventing the purchase or restoration of a 64 to 72 Chevelle 2dr to mentally unstable people who might pose a threat to the stability of the Chevelle image. Those who break this new law will be forced to drive a Toyota Prius for the rest of thier pathetic lives.

the prius should come with a mandatory rope in the trunk to hang your self with because of the shame caused from driving it :idea: :idea:
