PostSubject: december car of the month   Tue Nov 30, 2010 11:42 pm

hey everybody, siverfox picked me for december car of the month, thank u for that..

to start i have a long history of trucks before i got into my b body..

my first car was a 1980 malibu 4 door, 3.8 v6. picked it up for 300 bucks drove it for 6 months..
then i bought my 2000 s10 extreme when i was 17. it was stock for 2 weeks. lowered it on 17s first. (cant find pics of that)

then came air ride and the body kit came off..




then i shaved everything off the truck and put it in primer..




then i tore it down again 2 tub the firewall for 20s and make it lay frame all around




reprimed it, new wheels, and started the interior..










then i decided i did 2 much 2 it and needed to move on. i got rid of that truck and i had a couple beater pick ups.

then came my 2nd s10. 94 s10 4 banger 5 speed





lowered it on my old wheels after having it a week




then bagged it on 20s after being lowered a couple months







sold it after that. then got a 99 yukon for the winter. i lowered that alittle and put 20s on it and a few small things.




got very bored with it quick. so i sold it for alot more than i got it for, then bought a 89 chevy pickup already bagged (bad idea) it was a mess when i got into it. ended up redoing all the air ride.and body work.










then 1 day i got a trade offer on that truck for a 96 impala ss. i didnt know 2 much about these cars at the time. but my buddy who has always has caprices told me do it!. i was into the truck for around $2,500. so a week later we traded title for title.. and ever since then ive never wanted a truck again!

now on to the car finally

96 impala ss bbb. 140k was beat up when i got it. did alot of cleaning up and buffing and plenty of mods

before:




after buffing and touching up the paint




after a few mods, getting the stance where i want it and new wheels




thats about it. ive had my share of cars and trucks for only being 22. but the impala is deff. my favorite so far and its a keeper. thanks for reading. feel free 2 ask me anything

sweet thread! Awesome history of vehicles. All of them look the best lowered. I love the late 80's early 90's lowered long bed chevy trucks. Definately dig the stance on your SS. I should come to you when I figure out if i want to bag my 9C1 or not. Very Happy

Very cool. I had no idea you had all those bagged trucks before either. Too cool. Was that xtreme ever in Billerica? There was one that looked a lot like it there when I was living there a few years ago.

I love you Impala man. Looks awesome! I gotta say though, that given your history, that I'm suprised it's not bagged! lol
