    LOL. I read it wrong.
    Good idea.

      So do I.
      Heres pictures of my '63 Impala and my Cadillac.
      The Impala has air ride and the Cadillac has hydraulics.
      The pics are kind of bad because they were taken with a cell phone.

        Heck, down here in the south we call them there things "speed bumps"........



        (No, it's not mine... :sigh
        THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT PATRICK! Trucks where made to be in the air, not on the ground! If I wanted to ride around sitten on the ground I'd buy a skate board!

        Naw Seriously its cool Blaine if you like the low riders. Build those things untill your Blue in the face. Cool hobby, my Youngest Brother builds those Hydraulic cars and Tangs (Rod/Strip)
        They just arent for me, Now you take a car crushing MONSTER now we're talking! All that V-8 American Made Power ORORORORORO! kinda like Tim Allen thing there for the Drama. LOL

        In my picture I'm about 6' and you see where the door and top of the cab is in relation to me standing next to it.
        Trucks should be like the cheep seats or nose bleed section of a ball park, HIGH IN THE AIR!

        Good luck with your project truck, can't wait to see pictures of before and after.
        naw its cool.
        I'm a big auto enthusiast period.
        hot rods euro street racers 4x4s and all, any thing modified gets my attention.
        mini trucks have just always been my favorite.

          No, but I have alot of friends that do the same with their cars. That and street bikes to. But I traded my bike for a 36" wb mower though. It had been sitting wrecked for a while. I let my friend ride it and when he brought it back he was walking and bleeding. Oh well. I've made my money back thru the mower. I'd rather have the mower now.

            Sorry guys for not posting... been on vaca... can that be considered a hobby?? Anyways.. We are going to be selling casual wear... i guess if i had to list the competition... it would be quicksilver, roxy, etnies... surfwear, skatewear... along those lines... we are "this close" to sending a few designs to be produced... Our marketing plan will include direct mailers... internet (myspace, facebook), and since were only an hour from the boardwalk and beaches, we'll be spending weekends giving out flyers, occasionally some products... we're also gonna have beachballs custom made with the company name and website on there and give them out for labor day... its not bad... 250 for less that $150...(Were probably gonna do the same for the landscape co at our annual fishing tourney)... When the site get up and running, ill give all our (team gopher forum) members and percentage off... Hopefully the boys will show me some love so I can get this off the ground... 200 sales would really help!!!

                James how do you come up with the designs for your clothing? Is there anything you can show us before you actually have it made?

                Will it be silk screened or embroidered?

                I can't wait to see what you come up with!

                  sure steve... for example, this is one of the images we will be using of a girls baby doll tank top... it will be screened and the hats will be embroidered... but here it is...

                  I put an ad out on an artist forum and got in contact with a few guys..

                    Oh that is very interesting! How would you describe such a theme? Or define the brand? What feel are you trying to create from wearing such a brand?

                      good questions steve... right now were looking to hit the 18-30 market... some cutesy designs for the girls and some kinda tougher designs for the guys... we just signed the deal to get our hats done, so we should have some products in the next two weeks... then well go from there. we have three solid shirt/tank top designs for women... 1 solid hat... one maybe... and nothing for the guys yet... but i have the ideas... Ill keep you posted.... Im gonna set up a poll for one of the designs...

                        You know, something like that design could be used for your clothing line.

                        I am guessing this would be targeted more to the skater/surfer enthusiast? Possibly? Or someone who likes that lifestyle?

                            What do you think those motors are? Off a dirt bike? Maybe 250's? Doesn't sound like they shift.
                            Guys, After reading this post I started searching the internet for custom mower pics & videos, some of the stuff was so bizarre I wanted to share a few.
