Bagged Volkswagen Vanagon on Gotti Etoile

Volkswagen Vanagon on Gotti Etoile

Lowered Vans get me very excited. Although pictures of this Volkswagen Vanagon have been on the net for a while now on
Airsociety.net, Ive only seen it lately and can’t stop looking at it, I am intrigued. It is bagged, and the complex suspension
has been majorly redone, even the engine has been raised to accomidate the new height.

 

Volkswagen Vanagon on Gotti Etoile

“What’s keeping this car both lifted and lowered at the same time is a set of Air Lift 2500 fronts and 3500 rears. Dual
ViAir 450c compressors sit neatly out back hooked up to a 3 and 5 gallon tank. You read right, dual tanks. He also raised
the 2.0L ABA OBD1 Turbo motor up higher in the engine bay to give him better clearance when aired out. Talk about dedication!”

BBS RS ON BMW E30 16x10 16x9

A Couple of my friends are building a couple of BMW E30 projects, and they asked me how big of BBS RS’s Can they fit under
thier arches? I said 16×10 and they didnt quite believe me. This E30 was the first car that came to mind. I sent them a link to
this car, and now they are looking for similar specs.

Enkei RPF1 + Ford Maverick = JDMUSDM?

FORD MAVERICK on ENKEI RPF1
When I think of a Ford Maverick, I think of the 70’s compact car that sort of looked like a big Ford Pinto. I used to see them around when I was a kid, but now they are nearly extinct in my area. Add some lowering and some Japanese Road Wheels [ Enkei RPF1 ], and a total transformation has occured. – Enkei RPF1 on Ford Maverick

Adam Carolla Camel GT Datsun 280z s30

What a beautifully restored s30

 

“Scattered throughout the room, bathed in natural light from large windows, we found a Datsun Camel GT pace car built by Bob Sharp parked next to a Paul Newman / Bob Sharp Racing IMSA 300ZX. A few feet away, sitting next to the tool cabinets with its rear wheels riding on rollers to ease movement around the shop, was a custom Datsun Roadster 1600 racer with radically-flared fenders in bright orange. (Adam hasn’t raced each of these, and he may never, but he currently participates in his share of on-track competitions in his stunning Bob Sharp Datsun 610.)”
