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!

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

C4  Corvette sawblades on Chevy BlazerImage

Cool wheels that work on everything, v.2.2: BBS LM

BMW E39 on BBS LM:Image

GE8 Honda Fit on BBS LM:

Image 

Honda Odyysey JDM on BBS LM:Image

Loving the bodywork on this S2K widebody:Image

Race ready or pavement scraping, BBS LM go well on everything, just check out this slammed Infiniti Q45:Image This FD3S RX7 has been all over the internet lately, and for good reason: BBS LM’s, slammed stance, clean aero!

Image

Bayside Blue R34 on BBS LM: A match made in heaven.Image 

The ill-loved RWD Porsche 944 works on BBS LM’s too!Image 

Slammed Subaru Legacy making the BBS LM’s work!Image 

The little Suzuki Cappuccino with big BBS LM’s!Image 

Toyota Chaser on BBS LMs:

Image 

Volvo 850’s just don’t get enough attention.Image 

This Beetle has all kinds of Porsche mechanicals:  engine, trans  suspension  brakes, etc. Image 

The BBS LM works so well on Euro’s like this Audi TT.Image

Chevy Luv

How awesome is this Chevy Luv Mud truck?

Image

The thing on the left, looking like a traditional hot rod, is actually a Chevy Luv!Image

Not really a 4×4 any longer: Pro Street Chevy Luv roasting the tires!

Image

I love how rough and gnarly this thing looks.

Image

From lowered to lifted, the Luv does it all!

Image

Although it seems most are low-riders or Pro Street Chevy Luvs.Image

Missing something?

ImageImage

Baja style Chevy Luv

Image

Slammed Chevy Luv on Torq Thrusts!

Image

Chevy Luv totin’ two at the dragstrip!
Image

This one has so many cool details. My favorite is the exhaust stacks.

Image

Chrysler 300C

Kicking things off with a VIP style Chrysler 300C on Weds Kranze BazeriaImage

Next up, a “dub style” variant:

Image

Is there anything that a clean mesh wheel doesn’t look good on?Image

Marching to the beat of a different drum: A road race prepped Chrysler 300C!Image

Sometimes VIP can take on  a different look:

Image

Gangster whitewalls on a flat black Chrysler 300C? Oh yeah!Image

Believe it or not, but this picture is several years old, before many people were really doing anything with this platform.

Image

How about that fitment? Hellaflush Chrysler 300C!Image

Two tone working well on this one:

Image

This is proof-positive that ANYTHING can be fast, even a gigantic luxo-barge can pull tires with enough power and grip!

Image

How the Japanese do Chrysler 300C:

Image

SRT-10 Ram wheels on this Chrysler 300C:

Image

Slammed Chrysler 300C:

Image

Hellaflush, slammed, deep dish wheels, what more can you ask for? Platinum VIP x Liberty Walk, click the link for more info:

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

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

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.

Image

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

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!
