Not sure how well you can see just how much badness is going on in these pics but I saw this in Mt Clemens and had to get some shots for this thread. Its an s10 with full width axles, the front is...well...horrible. The whole axle is shoved over to the drives side by at least half a foot and the back of the leaf springs are not even bolted to anything, just sitting there rubbing against the bottom of the body. Yeah, not on the frame. Rubbing on the body itself. The front brackets are pretty bad too, that's a bolted on bracket on the bottom. The large vertical piece is prob 1/4 thick but its just 1 piece of maybe 4 inch wide 1/4 place perpendicular to the frame and it has already bent backwards. The front u bolts looked like bent all thread. Thankfully this thing didn't have an engine, trans, t case or driveshafts. I don't remember seeing steering either

Boat trailer fenders... Check!
Parts of a TV antena tower... Check!
Front off of a late 70's motorcycle... Check!
Drive train from a 1960's VW... Check!
Bench Seat with genuine Naugahyde covering... Check!
Beer keg gas tank... Check!


Definitely Booty Fab!!!

Only thing that makes this thing OK is the POW/MIA sticker on the windshield...

Sadly enough that isn't tower pieces, it looks to be a old Chenoweth sand rail frame. From the looks of it probably a old stadium racer.

ive been searching on my s10 forum, but i remember something similar to this, a guy just made some absolute ridiculous shit of a lift on his truck and got flamed very hard for posting about it, im trying to find it, its quite epic
