Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)

DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

    Hey folks,

    I'm currently living in Minneapolis, MN working on a '53 F100. My plans so far are to drop in a 429 Thunderjet and C6 tranny. Put in a Volare front end. Either a 9" or an Explorer 8.8 rear. Rebel Wire harness. Patch up the cab so I don't get wet or nailed with road debris. Then drive the hell out of it! I'm going to go all black at first then figure out what I want to do from there. Wish me luck...

    Hi Rick,

    First of all welcome !!!

    It looks like you have a plan and a good start. I'm doing two '53s myself. Go over to the old trucks category, I think I put a link there to my truck's website and I also started what will be a build thread.

    You might want to go over there and check it out and start a build thread for your project. I'm sure you will get a lot of comments and suggestions. I had that same engine and tranny in a dirt track stock car 30 years ago. It was a torque monster.

    Later Man...
