    that would look so tits w just a drop/air.. let me know! Soon selling my s2k and looking for next project.
    Those are all 5x120, so they are easy. The BMW wheel world (among others) is your oyster. Would be cool if someone on here with a BMW (I've heard there are a few) was to fit an OEM RWD Jaguar wheel to their car. [/hint, hint]

    Hi John. Yes, my daughter is so gangsta! She needs to be doing that in front of chrome dubs or a murdered-out car though.

    I didn't open the thread for self-gain. I do things to help enlighten people. I think my next trick may be a Holden, since I need to keep digging deeper into obscurity with potential.

    Edit: Doh, it's been done: http://www.canibeat.com/2010/06/blacklist-ed/

    I've got a '59 Mk II project that is a long ways away from completion...
    Actually its on hold right now lol... no engine, basically needs a rotisserie resto, etc.
    I don't think it will ever get the stance treatment though

In my head, they are about in the same class as Opel cars. Otherwise I like basically something from any non-American carmaker.
    Oh come on. Serious? That's some rough shit.




    BTW: I just LOVE your jag. and most of the others in this thread.

    My dad used to rock XJR wheels on our old e32 740il. Also my buddy Arthur rocks Type R jag wheels on his Lincoln LS

    Thanks! After some introspection, I've figured out why I dislike BMWs in general (I like E30 M3's though for some reason). I was the victim of elitist banter from my brother and many others as I grew up with VAG cars and I've seen so many people with attitudes like BreakMyWallet over the years of showing cars and competing in IASCA car stereo competitions. Now my wife (who worked for BMW Corp) will see anyone with an E34/E36 or newer BMW and say things like "wow, they must have a lot of money" and as many times as I say if I sold her Eurovan (worth maybe $22k or so now) I could buy her a half dozen used E34s, it doesn't register with her. Again, I respect them and they are great performing cars, look nice on paper and I love any clean car regardless of make. Edit: Opels I've just personally always found ugly, like most modern Pontiacs, American Generals or most American and Korean cars from the 1980s and early 1990s. Plus Opel is the arch enemy or VW among German enthusiasts - aka what I grew up with.

    Off my introspection soapbox and back on topic - anyone care to photoshop these two? I love them even at monster truck height:

    that XJ looks pretty nice, but also looks stock.

    that XK, fucking yuk, whats up with the STRUT grill and everything being color matched.

    I agree about BMW, anything post Bangle era is meh to me too. I never had the desire to own one. But then again back when I was a VW boy I never taught I'de own a Benz either (I was hardcore anti-automatic, now I love my slushbox). As for Ople, going up in the 90s, the 70s style Manta's and Ascona's where one of my favorites and the Calibra was my dream car till I jumped ship to VW and worshipped the corrado.

    The 70s opel are some of the most beaurifull european cars to me.

    Hey fellas. Even though I have always loved Jags (got it from my pops) Classics in paticular. I currently don't own any of my own. poking around craigslist I came across these two.

    78
    http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/cto/2086326373.html

    75
    http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/cto/2099240188.html

    If I werent buying a house right now and I'd jump on one of these. Both are interesting the 78 with a corvette engine and that the 75 I dont have to smog anymore.

    Anyhow figured someone here could give these a good home. sadly I cant right now.

    My friend has a totally standard XJ40 in mint condition, just trying to tell him it needs dumping. The roofline at standard height is still lower than my lowered E46
