  • Custom built Jeep Wrangler

    This custom built two-door Jeep Wrangler will catch anyone’s eye, just like those tires will catch the road. The V6, or V8 gas guzzling machine is awesome for off roading, mudding and great for cruising around town, but obviously not great on gas. The Jeep’s simple, awesome doors are easy access and a cool edition to the sweet looks of the Jeep. It has a 4-5 inch body lift and the deep, midnight blue; gloss paint looks perfect with the rough finished black steel fenders and wheels.  The light bars above the windshield and on the hood are a sweet little addition to this jacked up ride. This jeep is perfect for a summer car, not so much any other season. I personally love jeeps and my family was planning on switching over to one. Jeeps are part of Dodge and Chrysler so they are American made, and last forever if you keep it maintained properly.

     

    My buddy down in Pennsylvania had a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee that lasted him forever. He absolutely loved it and took real good care of it. He finally sold it for a new car, but it was still in great condition, with very little rust and problems. Jeeps are awesome SUV’s and are amazing for everything… accept gas. That is the only problem Jeeps have. If you ever wanted to go on a long road trip it would cost you a lot of money because it doesn’t have the best MPG. This custom built Jeep honestly looks fantastic, and there are so many other ways you can build it. Be creative when it comes to making your car special for you. For whoever built this one, did an awesome job because I would definitely buy it. There was a good choice in the rims and tires, paint color, and those awesome doors. I also really like the shell top because it distributes out the black and blue nicely. If I had the money, this would be one of the first vehicles i would be buying, then building because I appreciate the style and thought put into it.

  • Who Doesn't Want A Subaru?

    The 2015 Subaru WRX is a car everyone wants. Turbocharged four-cylinder engine is all you need for a lightweight powerhouse. Its handling is heavenly and with its fitted 12.4-inch vented rotors, two-piston calipers in the front, and 11.3-inch solid rotors with single-piston calipers in the back, brake fade is not a problem. From the brakes to the engine, the WRX’s engine doesn’t growl as loud. I personally love to hear the roar of an engine, and for me this car is best for that. Subaru’s are one of, if not my favorite type of car, they have great history and last forever, parts  are easy to access because of how popular they are in the United States. They are great, safe cars for a new driver and great family cars too.

     

    subaru rally car

     

    It has always been my dream car and if I ever were to buy one, than I would be a happy camper. Subaru in general is just a great car because of its reliability. It is fun to drive on long wavy roads, or highways. It has great mpg which saves you money. I have never driven one before but by the popularity of it, soon enough I will. Driving is fun, especially a car that is all wheel drive. You have the best traction and if you have good tires than you are in perfect shape. The thing I love most about the WRX is just its pure power and speed. I have always loved going fast and it just feels great. The body style of the 2015 Subaru WRX is also just astonishing, from the hood to its quarter panels, to the side skirts, to the rear bumper, all is just perfect. The interior of the car is also really clean and it looks appealing. There are a few interesting things about it like the touch screen on the center of its dashboard. It also has easy-access buttons, on the steering wheel. The only bad thing is that it has an eye for the police, so don’t have too much fun because it can get you a big fat ticket. Other than that, the car is fantastic and just all around nice sedan.
