Yo, this fitment is straight ignorant! (I secretly like it though) But hey, there is a small amount of ignorance that goes into cambering the crap out of your front wheels for fitment. This is pretty popular in Japan, especially street drift cars. It seems that there is a bigger contact patch when the wheels are in full lock during a drift. Not sure how true it is, but it seems to work for some drift guys. In the case of the car below, a street application, it seems to be for looks, which is cool because stance is badass (or is it?) To be honest, I dig it. It’s different without being over the top gaudy. And as far as fitment, it’s on point. Heck, look at the amount of fender work was done to make those wheels fit. That’s dedication.
Who can dig?!
AccuAir has and will always(as long as they keep doing what they’re doing) be cool. And when your cool, your stuff sells. Ok, so maybe not that simple, but you get what I mean when it comes to a successful air suspension company. By the way, did you see the iPhone controller coming out next month? Now that’s cool.
Body dropped old school trucks have been my ultimate weekness. I even posted a picture of this truck, not too long ago. It’s absolutely perfect. Modern drivetrain and wheels, with a completely custom chassis. And the best part was that they didn’t paint it. So dope!! Here’s a little video on some info on the truck as well as some reasons why AccuAir is cool. Ha!
Not many people know about my obsession with motorcycle’s. And really, the north east doesn’t have any big meets or gatherings that pertain to it. It’s really a shame because I am slowly seeing them become more and more popular. I was in soho/the village yesterday and was really shocking in the number of cafe style bike’s I saw. It really is part of a lifestyle for many, and for others part of a really badass dapper look. For me they are an extension of my passion, they are pieces of art, they make a statement, and they give you the all important feeling of freedom. I have been a HUGE classified Moto fan ever since they started, their style, and creativity is unmatched. This latest monster is based off a Yamaha XV1100 and has a crap load of custom mods. Check to see what a stock XV looks like and you’ll see what I mean. So dope. I love the addition of modern parts. You can sit and stare at it for hours. That makes it a work of art.
I wanted to post something really different then the norm today. Looking through my iPhoto I came across this picture of a R1 that I absolutely loved. Firstly, I love the new R1’s as is it, but slammed on air with extensive mods is another story. Now, personally, I wouldn’t go this far with a motorcycle, but I’m sure it would be SICK to see this thing rolling down the highway, slammed to the floor. You have to love the murder black and deep red frame. I would rock this for days!
I really love these race inspired builds. Crazy high horsepower swaps, full cage, lightweight parts, meaty tires, and much more. This Corolla is a perfect example of that kind of build. If I remember correctly the motor is from a Volvo, which is pretty interesting. Or maybe it’s just a JZ swap, can’t remember. Either way this car is done RIGHT, down to the custom carbon fiber doors and trunk. You are looking at a crap load of perfect execution.
There are just some things that shock the crap out of you with something that comes out of left field. You ever see a car and just can’t stop staring at it? I have to say, I couldn’t believe what I was looking at when I saw this photo. For those wondering, those are BMW M1 centers with custom lips and barrels. How he came up with a spair set of extremely rare wheels is beyond me. HUGE props to the owner for fiting the most outrageous set of wheels on a MK2 ever.
Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past couple days, been on recovery all weekend. Anyways, the Mooneyes show was not too long ago. This show is probably one of the better custom/hot rod shows in the world. People from around the world bring out their latest creations to show them off in Japan. As you can see Japan sure does know how to make some really sick custom rods. Not to mentions the tons of custom bikes.
