Import Alliance Atlanta 4/21/13 v.1: Trucks

Certainly not the expected first post I’m sure, but considering I have a blogger following me called “Truck and Ute”, I figured I’d post some for him! His blog below:

BMW X6M:

Slammed GMC Jimmy on sick wheels:Image

Not the biggest fan of the flares/fenders and bedside on this Datsun 620, but they are pretty well done:

ImageImage

This Datsun 620 has been all over the internet. I should do a post on this thing sometime! It’s got a lot of neat design touches and engineering.Image

Big Ford F-100 lurking:Image

Lifted Ford F-250 cruised around for a while:Image

Should have taken more pics of this lowered CRV on Work Meister reps.Image

Another Honda SUV, the Element, this one was on some clean polished wheels:Image

Big whale of an Infiniti FX45 looking good lowered on some mesh wheels:ImageImageImage

Clean Grand Cherokee SRT8:Image

How about a dirty Toyota Land Cruiser?Image

Toyota Pickup, N50 chassis lowered on Mitsubishi Starion wheels:Image

This clown was trying to do donuts in this litfted Tacoma… open diff plus tall ride height does not a drift make.Image

Totoyta Pickup, N30 generation. This guy has been on Stanceworks with a lot of pics of this truck. I like these trucks a lot. Image

A few more Toyota Pickups, N40 chassis, and check out the turbo setup on the last one!ImageImageImageImage

 

More pics from Import Alliance, comment if there’s something you want to see!

Inspired examples of OEM wheels on the “wrong” car! v.1:

Inspired by a thread over on vwvortex.com I present Inspired examples of OEM wheels on the “wrong” car! v.1:

Toyota pick up on Fuchs wheels:

Image

Ford Ranger on Mustang wheels:Image

Ford Fusion on Bentley wheels:Image

BMW E36 on X5 wheels:Image

First Gen Camaro on Corvette ZR1 wheels:Image

Chrysler Aries K with SRT4 wheels:Image

Mitsubishi Lancer OZ wheels on a Mitsubishi Colt:Image

Crown Vic wheels on Ford Ranger:Image

 

 

Honda Civic with Jeep Cherokee wheels? Why not?!Image

C4  Corvette sawblades on Chevy BlazerImage

Bonneville Salt Flats

Prepped for only one thing: SPEED.

Bonneville prepped First Gen Mazda RX7:

Image

The rear quarter window gives this one away: Datsun 240Z.Image

The Banks Sidewinder Dodge Dakota: World’s fastest pickup, and powered by a diesel.

I will be doing a post on some of the Banks project vehicles sometime.

Image

 

 

 

Would you believe this Salt Flats prepped Ferrari 575 Maranello was slower than the Dakota, only hitting a best of 212.6 so far?

Image

Can you believe this started life as a humble Fiat 600?Image

Thunder from down under: A Ford Falcon taxi?Image

Dakotas aren’t the only pickups to play in the salt. This Ford Ranger was mighty quick too.Image

Banks yet again, a GMC Sonoma this time.Image

Note the engine and ridiculous front end on this Honda N600!Image

Maybe one of the most beautiful cars to hilt the salt, a Mercedes 300SL.Image

Up on 3’s, v.2:

 

 

Click here for post 1:

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!

Image

First Gen Ford Focus, silver:

Let’s start off with a rear wheel drive swapped 5.4L powered version:Image

Cosworth Ford Focus:

Image

Image

Wagons can play too:

Image

There was never a sedan SVT Focus, but that didn’t stop one guy from doing it:Image

5 lug swap with BBS RE on Ford Focus:

Image

 

Ford Focus on Cobra R wheels:

Image

 

And a ZX3 Focus on Cobra R wheels

Image

 

Unusual cars to see stanced, v.4:

Nissan Primera/ Infiniti G20 on Work Equip:Image

Toyota Corolla/ Geo Prizm on XXR wheels:Image

Geo Storm on banded steels, cambered out and hellaflush, from Japan of all places!Image

Toyota Tacoma X-Runner on Varrstoen 2.2.2’s. Definitely something I could see myself driving in a few years.

Image

How about a slammed and blacked out Ford Flex?Image

Flatbed Mazda B-series pickup stanced on steelies!Image

Not something you see very often: a slammed, vintage, supercar: the Detomaso Pantera on air ride.

Image

Tjin Edition Pontiac Solstice on One Lug wheels:Image

Well that’s an interesting license plate frame on your Mercedes CLS:Image

When worlds collide: Work CR Kai on a Supercharged V6 Ford Thunderbird.Image

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

East Coast Fitment Fitment Festival 11/03/12 v.1:

A collection of images from The East Coast Fitment Festival in Concord, NC.

This Pontiac looked slammed in more ways than one. Image

I love these fender flares, I would definitely use these if I had an E36!Image

Mustang Mach 1 wheels on this Nissan 300ZX looked good.Image

This paint was crazy, it had a ton of pearl or flake or something in it.ImageImageImage

Not a fan of this paint job, but at least it was well executed.Image

Why orange grille and wheels? Because racecar.Image

The fitment this Evo was rocking was pretty impressive. I love these deep dish Work wheels.ImageImageImageImageImage

JDM front bumper on this Infiniti M series looked good… I liked his flag too. Image

R32 Skyline wearing a Veilside kit was a treat.Image

More to come!
