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.
“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!”

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.
These BBS RS are actually C4 Corvette spec running some Adaptec Adapters; 5×120.65 -> 4×100
I like the front rake of the car, makes it look aggressive.
16×10 BBS RS Rear Rim, just enough lip a really nice fit!

With everyone trying to get the fattest lip under their fenders, this FC Mazda RX7 is refreshing to look at with it’s nomal fitting

Exhaust gasses expelled through Racing Beat Y pipe and Mufflers.

This Datsun s30 240Z is owned by Mr. Vengeance of GarageZero, Atlanta GA. It is lowered accordingly to the “Shakotan” style,
has a fresh set of wheels, and some hints of Bozo with the front external mount oil cooler and upswept exhaust pipes. The
SSR MK III wheels he has sourced look to be sized perfect, and his custom suspension set up sounds very interesting!

Many celebrities are known for thier car collection. Jay Leno has whole warehouse full of unique cars. Tim Allen and Frankie Munoz have thier collections. Jerry Sienfeld as a nice Porsche collection. Now what sets Comedian and host of “The Car Show’s” Adam Carolla’s Car Collecion Apart? He Collects Datsuns, yes the common man’s econobox maker from Japan, Datsun. Don’t get him wrong, he does have Lambo’s and Ferrari’s, but he has some nice top notch Historical Datsuns.
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.)”
