if its not your taste so what move on...if you cant say something nice, dont click submit


just because its not a Bonneville dont be a hater
Pat I'm pretty sure that you're the LAST one that needs to be high and mighty on that topic.

Anyways....I think that if wheels were a lot smaller I could appriciate those cars more.

Pretty please don't start a flame war on my favorite forum...meaning please don't say anything against other MEMBERS, at least.

Yes, I can find things I dislike about all the cars. There are also parts that I, for one, LIKE. I like the paint jobs on both the Caprice and the Impala (though I wouldn't ever paint anything I own the same color as the Caprice, that looks cool). The Lincoln looks pretty stock everywhere else, but...the rims are either small enough to come close to fitting properly or just look a bit more natural on that one than the others.

I was in no way discrediting the work put into these cars, just the overall appearance with the 30 inch rims. LOL they change the whole stance of the car and it throws it off......ALLOT. If I had to pick, I would say this car is the best looking since its mint and closer to stock.

I disagree. Although I don't care for the style, it'* done well and it'* done right. They couldve made it look crappy, but those cars show lots of work.
No offense.. but it'* done well, but not right..

Look at the brakes on that last caddy coupe.

they're the stock 10 inch drums, like H*** those have enough balls to properly stop 24'*
Question: Whats the rim size got to do with braking efficiency? Sure bigger brakes would look and stop better but if the stock setup stops the car with 15'* why won't it stop the car (as good) with 24'*? I don't think the extra centrical force will have much impact on the momentum of a 3500 pound car but I could be wrong
Someone clue me in.
