Extreme Retro Rod or a litte too over the top? 405/25/24's on a Mustang!

I'm a loyal 7er section only type of guy and don't usually stray from home - so I'm just sharing my findings from other forums I frequent. Check this out - too much or innovation at it's finest? I can definitely appreciate the work it took to stuff them massive steam rollers and tuck them puppies.

Its sharp, but loses props with me cause it cant be driven like that.

I like the second one as it looks like its on the street.

Sam,

You think it can be driven like that?? You guys would know better than me, in the NE you dont dare drop a car that far and expect it to last more than a few weeks.

I think that thing is fantastic. No way in hell I'd want to drive it anywhere, but it looks like a work of art on the showroom floor. That's what it is. A show car. And a brilliant specimen at that.

that mustang looks good. i saw a whole article on the red thing... its a death trap. i dont remember what it was made out of, but it will be totaled even if it crashed at 5 mph.
and whats with the bmwGINA name??? are they tryin to subliminally correlate it with vaGINA??
