I was sitting at a light today enroute to the Post Office. The left turn
arrows went on and the cars began to turn in both directions.
As I'm watching the cars turn that are coming toward me the G__ D____
ground starts shaking from some hip hoppers be bopper boom box ride. All
of a sudden coming around the turn was about a 81-85 Regal or Cutlass
Supreme Sedan all pimped & Ho'ed out and shinnin', rounding the G__
D____ corner on two wheels.
That's right the car was tilted up sideways on the passenger side tires.
The left front wheel looked as if it was 9 feet in the air. The right
front tire was almost running on the edge of the rim where the bead of
the tire meets it. I couldn't tell if the left rear tire was touching
the ground. Wouldn't it have to be to propel the car?
As the car straightend out to go north my vision was blocked by the cars
that followed it so I couldn't see how it lowered back down.
I bet this type of driving would be frowned upon by the police.

When you hear these punk kids talking about "Hydrolics", that is what
they are talkling about. They take a perfectly good car, or truck and mangle
it. They put in one, sometimes two Hydrolic Cylinders per wheel, inplace
of the factory springs and shocks. Often not mounted very well at all.
Then they have pumps, usually one per cylinder, and a resivor. The
pumps are Electric over Hydrolic, where each pump is powered by an electric
They usually have a few large case batterys to power everything.
Sometimes the large Semi or Mariine case batteries.
They also like to use small wheels, with narrow tires streached out to
meet the wheel width. Example 155/80/R13's on a 13x7 wheel. Yes a tire made
for a max wheel width of 5 inches, with the side walls bowed outwards.
The owners of such cars are known to drive them in wreckless manors.
Hopping the front ends, going around turns with the inside front tire off
the ground. What they call "Three Wheel Motion". Sometimes they are
content just to rasie the rear end to the cylinders limits, almost hitting
the front bumper on the ground while driving.
Basically the people with suh cars are morons. They do not belong on the
road. These are the same idiots who think they have a "low rider" because
they cut their springs with a cutting torch.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against properly lowered, and road safe
cars. I have no problem with air ride suspension/ air bags suspension that
is adjustible while driving.
