    Fatman X member, 15" wheels, P215 tires. Its to low, suspension and X member will hit road before tire deflates should a flat happen. Could be serious consequenses at highway speeds. Am considering changing to adjustable coilovers to raise a bit.

  8. Front: Camaro suspension, Rear: reverse eye, de-arched springs, removed 2 leaves, lowering shackles, frame notched. On the road like this for 15 years . Scraped some, but nothing I couldn't live with.

    My '66 Volvo Amazon (121 in US).
    Bought lowering springs for it, wasn't enough, cutted 'em about 2" more.
    + KONI Classic series adjustable shocks.
    But with the next Amazon I'd like to go lower.

    Driving with it was quite comfy tho.

    Yous can find more photos from this link:

    This wagon is soo kool dude. what are the plans for it?
    Also what is it? a chevy w/ a lot of custom tricks on the front end or some other GM.

    I liked Batfink a lot when it was all gold, never really understood the flames, still one of the coolest trucks to be built in the beginnin of the century.
