So I had nothing to do with this photoshoot, other then supplying my car..

One day when i was at work BOOSTD asked if he could take my car and get some pics taken...

Being that it wasn't planned- the quality of the car wasn't at its best and really wasn't "ready" for a true photoshoot.

But i am more then pleased with result..

They guy who took the pics is a friend of Chris, named Thorne Washington..
I believe he is 21, and just getting into photography..

he asked my opinion on that one and i thought it was different, so i had him leave it in.

that location was in a bad part of town. i drove on the sidewalk and its right next to the river at a park, along with those night shots with the RR track above.

*300 pics taken

Nice gto to bad you arent closer we could get together for a little shoot. I would love to have some high quality photos of my car.

Are those coilovers from gforce too? Also are those the anti-wheel hop axles? What else is done to the suspension myn is all stock and needs some upgrades bad.

Dude! I'm sure a skinny white kid in a nice loud car didn't stick out in THEE ghetto'est part of Crackford! I wouldn't go down there with a SWAT team let alone your skinny ass! :roflpicard: I hope one of you had a side-arm.

yes, the coilovers are from GForce. We had regular axles in at first then just switched over to the anti-wheel hop axle. (one is larger than the other so there's no confusion for everyone)

ooh Don...I guess I just know the right people :naughty:

some of those pics were taken in Davis Park if you didnt notice. I wanted that location, so I did what was necessary to make it happen.

originally had the level 2 axles- the he came out with the larger diameter anti wheel hop kit, so i bought the thicker axle...

I actually still have the normal level 2 i took out.. need to sell it, only has like 200 miles on it.

but those coilovers are the only thing done suspension wise.. i need to upgrade bushings but im too broke.. i wont be able to buy anything for the car til next year

How much do the coilovers and the axles help with the wheel hop? I think I have it worse than others the car will not get out of the hole clean it hop's no matter what I do it seems.

Parts of Rockford yes. There are certain parts of this town that the cops dont even go to. You can certainly come to Rockford, I'll take you to Fairgrounds and then you'll understand.

Anywhere within 2 blocks of Morgan Street, South Central, West State and the river

These are no places to be unless you have a SWAT team or a number of appropriate connections!
