    A few for sure, but that Rivi aint one. Its been built by Cholos customs in Japan.
    But i know the one you talkin about. Actually there were 2 similar ones back then, Sex Pistol and Technical Extacy. They sure were inspiration for the Jap one.

    Back on topic. The 32 Hupmobile is the nicest 30s car ive seen in a while.

    Does anyone have pictures on how they build there rear end with hydraulics and still manage to get them so low? I mean here on h.a.m.b i can find thousands of build threads when people are fabricating 4link and airbags setups, but i cant find anyone doing the "same" except they use hydraulics and springs. anyone ?

    Foppa, you should ask that question on Chevybombs.com forum. They have massive knowledge about hydros on bombs and I’m sure you will find good info there.

    same basicprocess, but what youre missing probably is thwe fact that juiced cars still run on coils.
    Theres a roundplate on top of them (donut) that houses the cylindr that rises and lowers the car.
    Most of the times theres just 2 or 3 coils left to achieve the slammed look.
    What keeps the car from runnin like shit is the accumulators, or a very well thought set up.
