guys how come no one has mentioned about the EL CAMINO..ultimate pick up for me..it was produced from 1959 through 1960 and again from 1964 through 1987..it had 2 differnet engine options..a 12valve 4.2l v6 which pumped out 130-150bhp and an 16 valve v8 5.7l which pumped out 350bhp and an 1/4 mile timing of 14 sec...all this during the late 1960's..
oh and dont be surprised when u hear about 10sec camino's..






a picture says 1000 words huh????

This happend last nite... I was in nyc bar hopping, usually i come across many jaw dropping modified cars there but last nite it was the ultimate! I was driving back home and i see in the rear mirror a truck with 3 LCD screens on the front grill i couldnt believe my eyes so quickly turned back... and there it was an escalade totally pimped up this thing was awesome it also had a 20 inch LCD in the back seat facing the driver so when i turned back i could see the tv it was wicked... so i pulled over and desided to talk to the owner.... to my surprise it turned out to be a very well known rapper... he insisted no pictures but he was nice to show me his car from inside.

The truck had lambo doors that looked wicked... it had around 20 LCD's (all over the place, wiser, sterring, head rest, doors, etc) + a 42 inch Plasma in the back that pulled out at a flick of a button... i know its difficult to imagine but trust me guys this thing was the real deal.

I managed to take one pic from my car.... not very clear but somethings better then nothing... if you look carefully you will see 3 lcd's in the front grill and the 20 inch LCD can also be seen. Enjoy!

I guess he got the LCD's @ whole sale price lol... but it really looked wicked! I have never seen anything like this truck. I really wish he had let me taken some pictures.

Well you never know some other night if i spot it i will definately capture it on cam.

Exclamation The Suzuki Carry, Bagged!!!

Check this crazy pick-up truck, not much of a pick-up actually, looks like it needs a little picking up itself!!!

However, the reason im posting this truck [Looks so much like our very own Wagon R] is because there's a similar one in white featured in The latest sequel to 2F2F!!!

Look out for it!!!





The Japs are crazy, aren't they, but you gotta hand it to them man!!! Drift away!!!!
