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!
I can’t express how much I love when people take rusty cars with crazy patina body drop them and drag frame. Even better when they leave the body as is it and completely update the entire drivetrain and suspension. I think it’s becoming so popular because you simply cannot replicate the look. Hopefully it doesn’t become too mainstream but I really do enjoy seeing it. I came across this picture of a really dope example of what I’m talking about. Many people don’t understand how much work goes into a proper body drop. It’s pretty intense. And after all that work, leaving the patina gives the truck that much more character. Oh, and having baller wheels always help. So dope!
What a great color combo as well.
Being skilled to build a car on your own takes a whole lot of skill and knowledge. Building a car completely from scratch, well that takes a whole other level of performance. Something I would love to, but would probably never do is take pieces of steel and aluminum, put them together, and create an actual, real functioning vehicle. I really can’t express the amount of love and respect I have for the Australian who built this truck. I really can’t wait to see how it does on the track. But at the same time, I would be wayyyyyyy to scared to beat on it!
Like I said in my last post, it’s always great to see a dope truck, that is not only modded but is also functional. Found this Datsun (sunny?) in one of the various blogs I follow and thought it was so cool. Perfect, period correct mods with a little function added to it. Props, again for not being scared to actually use your car.
It’s one thing to have a show car/truck that is so built that it needs to be towed to a show. Besides that some shows are very far and people just don’t want to chance driving a show car far distances. That brings you the need for tow vehicles. And if your a car nut, any car you own you just can’t leave alone. We have all seen our share of radical tow vehicle’s, but I found another to add to that list.
Where do you even start with a tow truck like this? It’s just about as sick as the truck it’s towing. Damn it would just be so dope to build something like this.
I can not tell you how much I respect the guys who started Icon 4×4. We’ve countless amounts of shops restoring cars and trucks. And that is all good and fine. But a group of guys that take the time and not only restore classic cars, but make them one-hundred times better, those are the guys you have to love. After watching the video below, take the time and check out their website, seeing what they improved and completely rebuilt. It’s a really impressive task and for me, is a complete work of art. These guys not only have skill, but have a real passion for creating the absolute best. And the trucks come out looking damn good as well. So before you become outraged at the $150k+ price tag, look at what really goes into creating a completely new truck. I could only dream to do something so significant.
I have been posting a lot of classic car recently. Like I have said before, classic cars have a soul that you just can’t find in a new car. It’s a completely different kind of monster. We’ll speaking of monsters, below is a different kind of classic. I have always loved every generation Toyota Land Cruiser, and this mid-80’s example is no different. I have very little doubt that this car was built in Japan, it is absolutely mint and is rocking a set of truck Volk TE-37’s. So freakin dope!
It’s pretty crazy that clean examples of this truck are still fetching over 10k. Well worth it in my book
I really love body dropped truck. I also really love lowriders. This truck seems to have feet in both camps. The large wire wheels are very different for a body drop truck, but it seems to fit in quite well. Man, I want one bad!
Now, I would never build half the trucks on this video, but do have a huge respect and love for body dropped rides. There is a lot of work that goes into a body drop and I can respect the dedication that goes into a project like that. I do want to eventually have a hand at a body drop dually and vw bus so I like to keep up with the new-new in the truck world. Definitely dope to see these trucks driven so damn low.
Throwin sparks all day!
I keep saying this, but there really isn’t a style of car/truck I don’t like. I really respect the work that goes into a truck that is laying body. Seriously, if you haven’t looked into the work that goes into a body drop, check it out. I guarantee you’ll have a brand new respect for these mini truck heads that some love to hate. This Toyota took my love to another level. No clue as to what model is it, but it’s old school and rare; that’s all that matters. Oh and throwing a LSx swap in it helps a tad. Damn this thing is sweet!
