Just because a lot of BMW owners on here aren't into that 'look' and want near enough OEM feel for their cars, it doesn't mean stance and stretch is crap for everyone else. Blimey.
Right in the feels, I get you 8) :lol: :lol: couldn't agree more!

I'm with you there......but, such stupidity isn't new, as I'm old enough to remember when it was supposedly 'cool' to do this sort of thing to Cortina's and Capri's etc. :lol:

And I probably shouldn't be too critical, as I'll be driving around in a vintage hot rod before too long :oops:

Each to their own Monsieur Wibbles. If everyone did the same thing, the world would be a boring place :).
For sure mi amigo. No offence meant, just my opinion.
Fully understand :). None taken, everyone has different opinions but that's what makes the car scene great I think, so many different styles and ways to build your car however a lot of people bow to pressure to fit in with the crowd and be sheep, i.e. the VW Scene, air ride, Rofitoms or BBS' and it's a "Build".

I don't see anything wrong with that. Looks quite nice actually. British style Gasser.

Not really Gasser style, got to be high up all around for a Gasser, that 'tina is just a typical 70's UK custom scene thing.

For 70's/80's UK Gasser you need to look no further than the infamous issue number 1 of Street Machine and the legend that was Henry Hi-Rise 8)

It reminded me of the Gasser style is what I should have said. I like the Gasser look :). Is it a Ford Hot Rod you're building/getting? I can't remember.
