What stance do you have?

Saw this on another forum. It is pretty good.

Re: What stance do you have?

I have the stance I LIKE. my car don't have to be cool to appease other people.
I don't have to worry about tire rub or headers dragging, nor do I need an apple crate to get in my car
it's called old school

I know this is probably in jest, (but some live by it)
but what gives the right of chosen few to determine what is wrong with you car

I remember many of those violations from way back then. I think I am now okay. It was a fun read.

Nothing wrong with those cars,we all know the popular styles change or come and go over the years, My first car (Nova) had the "stink bug" look in the 80s. I'm violating the black wheel thing now.

Aren't you glad the Mullet mostly died ? there's always a few holdout's though,lol.

Re: What stance do you have?

Some cars call for a certain rake to complement the overall look! A vintage street bruiser (day 2 modified) is going to have a stink bug rake with the back end up to allow the wide tires. It's also going to have either a dropped front end or a bit of a gasser look up front. No violation if the look is what the owner/builder wants! Obviously if you are doing a full blown PT car you don't want the day 2 stink bug rake...

Does this car loose points for being flatface?



Or this one for being highwater?

Re: What stance do you have?

The article should be taken with a grain of salt. Just a fun read. Both those cars look great,

In regards to a mullet, my shiny skull would take my mullet back like it was a hot, bad girlfriend.

I really like the 68!

But I would have to put some chicken wire or something above the rear tire to keep pigeons out of there.

Re: What stance do you have?

I like them both. Problem with the low stance is oil pan and header clearance and that sickening sound they make when you hit a speed bump that you didn't see.

Re: What stance do you have?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and when it comes to stance, wheels and tires... it's like talking about bellybuttons, everybody has one. For me I can't stand seeing a Camaro jacked up in the rear so that there's 4-5 inches (or more) of empty ugly wheel well. But I know there's folks that like it. I'm leaning towards the Pro-Touring Cruiser look... just a hint of rake and low enough to help your handling but not so low as to drag or hit everything. I also like the Pro-Street look... fats and skinnys... but its gotta be mini-tubbed at a minimum. I agree with the "murdered" black wheels comments... one of the nicest accents you can have on your car is a nice set of wheels, so why hide them.

But its a interesting read. We've seen them all LOL.

Re: What stance do you have?

Stance can make or break a car as far as I'm concerned. My newly acquired Camaro doesn't have the "stance"..... yet. I'd display it..... but..... I'm an untrusted proby.



Wah hoo! I'm now a trusted member, I guess. At least the picture took with the edit.

Re: What stance do you have?

C'mon guys - it's all in good fun. You just have to take it all with a grain of salt. They did call everyone out as a "violation" and none as correct. And a few had me laughing out loud.

The Donk - When is it OK? If you insist on doing your part for evolution, by all means, thin the heard.
