Awesome pics! I fly out tomorrow through Thursday as I built a lot of parts for show builds via 3D printing including this console for the SEMA Garage WD40 Bronco build ( part that says “Built By Dinsmore”. Maybe we can meet for a beer....

The guy that built/owns this VW lives in my neighborhood. I have stopped by a few times over the last few years he was building it. It looks like it has a V8 under the front hood, but actually has two 2276cc VW motors inline connected with a coupler. Tremic 5sp, Ford 9" rear end.

If any of you guys there could snap a couple pics of the Baja Porsche in the toyo tires booth, that'd be great. A buddy of mine completely designed and built it himself and I've only seen pieces of it, not the entire thing.

I always wanted to build a COE 56' big window truck like the one pictured.

Some good truck pics (215 or so) on this link.


I just can't get over the huge lift / small tires that stick way out fad. I LOVE big lifted trucks, just can't do that wheels sticking way out / tiny tires. Reminds me of the mini truck fad of the late 80's / 90's, which I actually didn't mind on a mini truck. But a lifted truck?! I don't get it. Give me some 42" Super Swampers with max 20" rim and no adapters.

I'm with ya. I feel the urge to pee on their tires to try to help them get them to grow. I feel kinda bad for the owners that they have to roll around on baby dick tires like that. Lol!

Like this? If so I feel your pain that has been the craze here in Hawaii for decades. :banghead: Not trying to bash the style just not it for me.

Yes, exactly. And yea, I agree, not bashing anyone for their taste. I just couldn't do it. That truck is bad azz. I dig it. Only thing I would do is run a set of 20" rims and do 42 or 44 tires with more meat and not have the rims stick out sooooooo far.

Its funny you said it's been a craze in hawaii for decades. You're absolutely right. Dudes on the big island have been running that look on their Toyotas since the 90's!

The only difference is that here in Hawaii they don’t run as big of a rims. Still a mega lift with 15” wheels and 31” tires.
