Ya, I've seen picks of this one and an older monte carlo at the mounds at jeepforum, people from the south we're calling michiganders rednecks because of these pics, kinda funny and ironic. Any body know the guys who drive these things.

I saw that tool driving around, and his rig is so rednecked up, that he has to have a spotter walking next to the car/truck at all times because he can only see about 70' in front of him.. nothing closer.

yes he is a hazzard to all ! I often visit the mounds on a quad and countless times been fearing for my life because this guy would come hammering out of a mud hole out of control, The rig is obviously extremely top heavy and he has no roll cage in it..

there is no point to having the damn body that high off the chassis. i could be wrong tho maybe he is worried about body damage.
some one told me he uses exhaust tubing to put that body up there

For running those 44's you're right it doesn't need to be that high. I was wondering if he plans on running big tractor tires or something, like 50"+....either way it's :gay:

I have only seen a few carucks that look okay. El Camino's and Rancheros aren't bad considering they look like trucks to begin with. There is a Subaru Brat running around the Tri-Cities on 38"s that doesn't look bad.
Also there is a guy I see up in Mio all the time with a late 60's convertible Camaro or Firebird(can't remember which) that is on 33's. It looks real good, but would look better if left a sweet late 60's convertible.

he put the body up like that to clear the motor, if he had it lower it wouldnt have cleared the distributor or something, (why he didnt just cut a small section of out of the firewall i dont know). A guy i worked with this summer kind of knew the guy, and yes i think you'e right he used exhuast tubing for his 4ft body lift
