    Forgive my ignorance, but what kind of car is this?

  3. Why ask your car for the colour? Cars dont know shit, they speak in false tongues, and are likely to change their mind every five seconds 'cos they're nearly all female..... I say we gotta be strong about this! If'n we say the wheels are gonna be chartreuse, then dammit, they're gonna be chartreuse!

    So there!
     
  4. I like the way they look. Out of the ordinary, not the usual red look.

    I love that 3 and 5 window... :cool:

    I love the stance of this one. With those wheels it's somewhere between rod and kustom. Very simple but WOW.

    Guess I'll have to pull my overdone red wheels off the roadster and put my old torq thrust back on. Nah, I'll keep them on and wait, maybe they'll be cool again when everyone has gone to black :)

    Actually , I am thinking about changing them to maroon....
     
  13. You mean I'm all alone out here with blue? :confused:

    haha, no kidding. 3 Windows are hard to find, at least affordable.

    The 5 window is mine and the 3 window is my Dad's. He is getting blackwall bias and THEN it will really look good. ;) It's getting painted soon too. Hopefully next week.

    My chevelle runs black steelies too, if anyone cares...

    C9,
    Yes, you are all alone with blue wheels. Isn't it neat to be the only one and not part of the lumbering herd? Personnally I like your blue wheels. It fits the character of YOUR car.

    I can't decide what color to go with the Kelseys on my car. Red would go well with the Washington Blue I'm planning for the body. But then again, so would Tacoma Cream wheels. What ever I choose, it will be because it is something I like. I could care less what the world thinks.

    For the rest of the readers,
    When it comes to the color of the car, the wheels, or whatever else, forget trends. If the color pleases you, then paint it that color. When some other color will look better to you, than change the color. Be the individual you intend to be.

    So if anti-trendy is trendy then to be trendy is anti-trendy... I'm confused...

    If your putting black or red or white or chartreuse(?) on your wheels because everybody else is doing it, you suck!!

    If you looked at a car and thought "Man, that color would look bitchin' on my ride!" and it does, then you don't suck as much!!

    But let's not forget that you're all a bunch of Nerds, sitting in front of your PC reading this, when you should be in the garage painting your billet wheels, or better yet driving them, 'cause its summer DAMMIT!!
