Dodge Charger Daytona / Plymouth Superbird

Not a vehicle you see modified very often!

Petty colors look good on this Dodge Charger Daytona:

Pro Street with the big and littles wheel and tire combo:Image

Love the look of the big tires and worn, battle scarred exterior hunkered down:Image

There are actually a few converted convertible Satellites i believe that have been given the Dodge Charger Daytona treatment:Image

This thing is so crazy! I’m pretty sure it is a tube frame type vehicle with fiberglass body panels.

Vin Diesel drives this gorgeous machine in the latest Fast and Furious movie:ImageImageImage

Another flat black Charger Daytona, prepped for the 1/4 mile too!Image

Someone should build another one like this Speedster style Dodge Charger Daytona:Image

Viper powered Saab 9-3

Some people are crazy, and awesome, and simultaneously talented. An unsuspecting Saab got torn down to this:Image

Then got some body work:

Image

Then got mated with this:Image

A whole ton of fab work later, it got to this:

Image

Image

It got painted, and showed:

Image

Then some fresh paint and carbon fiber, along with new wheels, and finally got to shred some tires:

Chevy Camaro drifting! That’s some stiff suspension!Image

Ford Escort Cosworth, getting it done on the track:Image

Ford RS200, not even caring that it’s missing the right rear tire.Image

GE8 Honda Fit letting some daylight under that back tire:Image

Drifting W123 Mercedes Wagon? Oh yeah!Image

The rarely seen Nissan Pulsar, on the autocross course:Image

Nissan S13.5 doing what it does best: Put on a show!Image

Drifter counting: 4 cylinders, 3 wheels on the ground, 2 doors, 1 turbo, 0 bumpers.Image

Aerodynamics can’t keep this Porsche 911 planted.Image

Another WRC Subaru makes its way into an up on 3’s post:Image

Toyota Camrys can play too:Image

 

Only dynamic suspension can get a car up on 3’s on flat ground. This bug shows us how it’s done!

Going against the grain

These guys march to the beat of a different drum:

Ford Faimont Rally cross?

Image

Saturn SW2 Touring Car?Image

Volvo XC70 desert exploration vehicle?Image

Audi Quattro drift car?Image

BMW E30 tow rig?Image

RWD Honda Civic drifter?Image

Lamborghini Gallardo winter beater?Image

Old ’40s lifted and diesel swapped tow rig?Image

Nissan 240SX rally cross?Image

Subaru GL prepped for wilderness survival?Image

Random sickness, v.4:

3 wheeling Fiat Abarth!Image

Modified Hyundai Veloster?Image

Was just talking to a friend the other day about how you almost never see the Kia Soul modded…

Image

Maybe a big Japanese GT-VIP style Lexus GS430 is more your style?Image

For more speed, add lightness: Lotus Cortina carrying the inner wheel through a banked turn.Image

Big Mercedes W126 laid out, likely on air: straight up gangster.Image

Another german on air ride: Mini Cooper on BBS wheels.Image

Sorry for the low res, but how awesome is this arctic prepped Nissan Frontier?Image

And some Japanese drifter conversion weirdness: Nissan S13 with Mercedes headlight conversion.

I’m a sucker for air ride and roof boxes. Any car is better to me with those two things. Like this Scion XB 2nd gen.Image
