Last time I took my car to a shop the guy looked at my door for about three minutes wondering where the keyhole is before he noticed the fob on my keychain :bo: :bo: :bo:

I watched him the whole time trying not to fall out laughing.
hehehehehe.... good stuff... I'm here with a buddy of mine who is a mini trucker, and he happens to be drinking mountain dew as we read this... lol

And I liked what trucks USED to be... It used to be more of the "I'm broke, but every penny i make goes into my truck" crowd... Now its the "Lets see how much money I can throw at this truck" crowd... :(

It is still like that. There is a bigger group of ppl who save for ever to do 1 thing to their truck, you just arent ever seeing them b/c big companies make show vehicles that get published. Or ppl in clubs like NC, Acrophobia, Pebble Pushers, Severed Ties and shit, they are such elite clubs, anything they want, they get, for free. Acrophobia has a HUGE, like 15 bay warehouse in Florida for their trucks, who pays for it? Their sponsors. Those are the trucks that get published VERY often, but there are still more mini truckers who save and save for things. Hell, i'm about to start the install of a 5 link setup on a friends S10. He has a great job, plenty of cash, but still has to save up like the poor boy way. He's had the front only bagged for a yr. just now getting 2300 to do the rear like he wants. Next winter, tubs and dubs on it. Its gonna take a yr to save for that. There are a lot of minitruckers who have to save yr round for 1 big thing in the winter. :)

I personally am getting pissed about the 50K paint jobs and shit being the top dog, making ppl like me and TPP and other mini truckers feel we cant compete.

a LOT of those apply to me.. i just dont wanna go through and pick em out.
so what is the difference between mini trucks and lowriders? i mean besides the difference between one being a car and one being a truck in some cases, they are both low and scrape on the ground..... :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:

That is easy.

Go pick up a mini-truckin and a lowrider magazine and you'll instantly know.

Lowriders = most of the time use hydros that dont even have accumulators and you can tell they were ghetto rigged just to work, not ride great. What is cool in lowrider mag, was cool in minitruckin 13 yrs ago. Chain steering wheels, velour ineriors, little glass cut mirrors, 13" wire wheels, gold/chrome fender trim, huge murals painted all over the car.

Mini-trucks = generally 20's stuffed under an s10, air bagged suspension (sometimes 5g's of work in the rear suspension alone), usually we have door handles and shit, lowriders usually gold plate them.

They look VERY different



Notice, body dropped (meaning body lays on the ground, not the frame. Lowriders dont even lay on th ground.



The funniest thing is.... hearing a lowrider (usually the black kids in school or mexicans) say, "that's too low"...

Have a mini truck, but not quite a "minitrucker"...

Come to indy Mike.. you wont leave wihtout throwing sparks :p


Gimme some money first... then I can finish up the Civic, then start on the truck... and still have money left to put away for a house and buy a new car, get married etc...


hmmm, 4 for the civ to run, 2 or so to lay the truck flat out on the frame, 20 for a house, 10 for a new car. 800 for a wedding.. i could swing that.

You'll be living in the ghetto of san antonio for 20g's and driving a brand new neon for 10g's and getting married in vegas at one of those little house of marriage places.. 800 for the plane tickets out there :p



That's looking pretty cheap man. :lmao:

I'm guessing 2 for the Civic to run, 2 to lay frame, 120 for a house, and 8 for a ring... maybe have the parents help out with the wedding. Oh yeah- another 7 to finish the Civic (head and paint), then another 35 for the new car, another 20 on top of that for a turbo build... yup.

:lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

Your plan = 37k, my plan = 164k.


:lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:
