my old setup was 15x8 stamped steel american racing wheels ( couldnt afford hammers) with 50 series sidewall. 195 50 15 I believe. torsion bar loosened all the way. bumpstops taken out, hangers redrilled, frame C notched (with a pipe), 4 inch blocks, only bigs and littles on the leaf springs.. gabriel air shocks for adjustability!!!!

fenders were rolled with a baseball bat... and to cover the warpage we bolted up stainless steel fender trim...

tweed interior, vinyl insets, spray fleck dashboard, graphic equalizer / booster , M&M 8 inch see through subwoofers. color matched shifter, shifter boot, driving lights (with covers), color matched wiper blade (only one like a lamborghini) with double b;lades and wind wings (2 sets) sotck mirrors replaced with baby turbos mounted on the a pillar. swatch shields sunglasses hanging from the colormatched bandana.
N2Deep back to the hotel cranked as loud as you can.

any further questions? ;D
You nailed it man,,, I need a time machine to go back and get some of that stuff,,,,,,, You cant find a good equalizer / booster these days!!!

i love old skool shit...

my buddy in high school had a mazda... started out on 14x8(yes, 14x8) sawblades...with 185/60/14's!!! you talk about a stretched out tire! 3" blocks and belltech spindles.... a while later he upgraded, and swapped the blocks out for belltech leaves, he was sponsored by Soundstream back when they were actually built here in the US.... and uh he dragged through 2 sets of u-bolts, and he loved people asking how he got over speed bumps. "I don't."
