While most of the population drive around like a bunch of automatons, not being able to identify the make of a car without seeing the badges over the tail lights… there are still guys like us, who spend our lives concocting the craziest wheel, paint, and swap options… all in the name of jaw-dropping, show-stopping ingenuity. But no shit right? I’m not telling you anything new here. I’m telling you that most of the self-proclaimed trailblazer “ain’t nobody seen a setup like this before” kind of talk often refers to nothing more than dilly dallying with fender pulls, paint shemes from obscure GM vehicles, and basically stuff that looks like child’s play compared to diehard builders. So what’s the best way to really show what you’re made of?? To really prove yourself as capable in this scene? Well – buy a car that intimidates most.
