  1. This truck has no clearance – it would never make it around here with our potholes and hilly terrain. Cool-looking, however!

    1. I don’t think it could make it to the street either, without help. I’ve seen these super-lowrider cars being driven. They have some kind of hydraulic lift thingy that the driver uses to lift the front wheels and the back wheels. Sort of silly when they’re rolling & jumping, but very cool when they’re parked!

      1. LOL – I saw something like that in a Cheech & Chong movie. I think it must be a SoCal thing. 😀

        1. I think it IS a SoCal thing – but I found a YouTube showing bouncy lowriders in New York. Boys & their toys!

            is the price of their toys.”

    1. Isn’t it? !!! I see these old cars on the streets in Los Angeles, and it makes me want to ride in one.

  2. I went through a phase of wanting a low-rider when I was young but propriety always prevailed. 🙂

    1. They are super cool, but I guess they’d also drain your wallet pretty fast!

      1. Yes, the empty wallet was the real reason, rather than propriety, that I never had one.

    1. I do too, and I am not a “car person”. Are they making any trucks these days that will someday be considered cool?

    1. Thank you! Los Angeles loves cars, no doubt about it. What I like about this one is that it isn’t (yet) fancied up. One can easily imagine greasy tools in the bed of the truck.
