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!

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

Cool wheels that work on everything v.7: Buick GNX/ Pontiac Trans Am GTA

These wheels came factory on the Buick GNX, as well as a slightly different version on the the third gen Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA.

These are one-off 18″ versions of the GNX wheels on a GNX.Image

Volvo 240DL on GNX wheelsImage

First Gen Camaro on GNX wheelsImage

 

 

Pontiac GTO on GNX wheelsImage

5th gen F-body Chevy Camaro on GNX wheelsImage

It’s hard to tell, but apparently this Acura Integra is on GTA wheelsImage

Firebird Trans Am on GTA Trans Am wheelsImage

C4 Corvette on GTA wheelsImage

Wish there had been better pics of this Chevy Corvair on GTA wheels.Image

BMW’s bolt pattern is almost identical to GM’s, so here is a BMW 318 on GTA wheels.Image

How unusual is this? A tastefully modified S-body Blazer on Trans Am GTA wheels!Image
