    Down in Alabama, I've seen older Chevy Caprices with wheels like that. They usually have a bright fluorescent paint scheme too.
    Unique for sure...

    There used to be guy over at TT (Marky Mark) who created awesome looking truck with large wheels. His truck was a work of art. Unfortunately, he sold his truck and began modding a Charger several years ago. Large wheels and small tires are not my thing. But I do admire his creativity.

    Is it just me or does that guy have monitors installed on the rear seat head rests? I guess he either transports his kids in the bed or he is all about sharing his movies with the rest of the people on the road.

    His truck was over the top. As I remember, he had a gigantic monitor in the front (hanging down type), then two monitors (you are absolutely correct) on the rear head rests. He also had large monitor in the bed (front side). I think his truck was largely for the show circles. As I remember, he had a very low mileage when he sold it.

    Disclaimer: I will never do this to my truck. I am too much of a functional guy. I don't even like 20 inch wheels. But I have to say his truck was a head-turner. There was a huge thread over at TT that went on for a loooooong time where so many people were drooling over his truck. Attention to detail was amazing. His painting went in the door post as well so when you open the door, you could see the picture continuing. He had a Lambo doors also.

    This is known as a "donk" truck. I think they call it that because only a donkey would do this.

    Once I was with a co-worker, headed back to the office after getting some lunch. About a block before our building there are some train tracks, and as we went to cross them a white sedan heading toward us on the other side of the road just goes plowing off the road into a field. A split second after this happened a huge chrome wheel shoots up and over the railroad tracks, lands, and continues rolling down the road.

    We stopped to help and noticed they had 24" wheels on this sedan. Not only did they look ridiculous but they apparently stressed the hell out of the lugs and ended up breaking. It was a lady driving and she had another female passenger in the car. Neither of them spoke English and we tried to help get them off the road before the police arrived and insisted on towing the car.

    There is probably a moral to this story but mostly I just laughed my ass off when I realized no one was injured or dead.

    Disclaimers were meant to be completely ignored, regardless of what language they're printed in!

    Ah......you could have said "burrito" and I would've believed it.

    I couldn't agree with you more!

    Got that hater vision in the back window, that is what they call monitors in the back headrest. I have seen a lot of dumb stuff in Texas but that truck is at the top of the list.
