Decided to go back to my roots today. Simple old school Volkswagen’s. There is just something about the beautiful, simple lines of the small bumper mk2. It says a lot when you don’t have to do much to make a car look really good. The example below is basically a stock mk2 with a drop and a rare set of BBS wheels and a clean body. That’s it. And I could honestly stare at it forever. Beautiful.
Ah man, I’m so glad I found this video. True Driving’s member Mike just copped a 2012 Accord coupe and I’m dying for him to drop it on a sick set of wheels. This video gives a sick visual as to how good this car actually looks on 20’s. Dare I say, perfect. It’s pretty simple when you think about it. It’s a large drop with a OEM lip kit and a lovely set of 20 inch Vossen’s. Oh, and you can’t forget about fitment. It’s all about the fitment!
This is for you Mike!
If only, the Golf R coming to the states didn’t start at over 30 grand. You know, I’ve owned a mk5 for the past couple years. So if anyone would be tired of that body style, it would be me. But I would pick up a white Golf R in a heartbeat. Volkswagen did this car right in so many ways. We’ll, besides the price of course. Add a serious drop and a set of uber rare Maybach wheels and you have the only car you’ll ever need in your entire life. No seriously, it’s that good.
As cars get older, they become more and more popular. New cars seems to be missing some of the “character” found in these older cars. The BMW E34 5-Series is a car I always admired. The lines and look it gives off make for a great, timeless car. It’s a surprise it’s not as popular as the other old school BM’s. Maybe it’s just not it’s time. I’m actually considering either the 4-door or wagon for an upcoming project for House Of Tune. Do something like a M3 or LS1 swap on air. Here is one of the many pictures I’ve saved of this car. As you can see it has a lot of potential with a proper drop and wheels. Beautiful.
I realize I’ve been posting a lot of old school Honda’s lately so I figure I post up something a little newer. Mainly posting this because a close friend of mine owns an Accord coupe and I wanted to show him it’s potential in the “stance” category. I mean the car really speaks for itself. You can see how a oem lip kit, drop and a nutty set of wheels can completely transform the car. I can’t think of the name of the wheels off the top of my head. Any help? Anyways, great car, perfect stance.
And in case your wondering, yep, it’s static.
Keeping with the subject of 80’s Honda’s, the Prelude is another one of my favorites. Please don’t ask me why I love these old Honda’s, it’s just something about them! Ever since my friend Gabe had one a couple years back and we would talk about how we could mod it, it gave me a gain interest in owning one as well. These cars really don’t need much. The OEM lines are so perfect there is no need to mess with them. He had a black BA and we thought back then, a drop on some Mugen M7’s would look perfect. Still think it would be a head turner. When stanceworks did the write up on the one pictured below it brought back all those ideas and love for these 80’s babies.
Just like we had planned, a clean car with a drop on some uber sexy yet simple BBS RS is all the car needs. Eye candy.
I think we all can admit that when the Miata first came out in the early 90’s, the first thing that came to mind was that it screamed girl car. Today, as many tuners know, the Miata’s popularity has sky rocketed. It seems everyone forgot how much fun people made fun of Miata drivers. I personally, love the car. It’s a perfect little canyon carver and with the addition of the LSx swap it has pretty incredible potential. Now we just have to prove it can look less “girly”. Now I know there are crazy, much more aggressive ways to mod this car, but I like the simplicity of the white NA below. Dropped on some old school SSR’s(?) and you are on your way to enjoying a less girly car. Good luck explaining it to the girlfriend though. lol
Yes I know, the black NA in the background is insane looking, I have more pictures of it if anyone is interested.
