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.

Darksider's Realm

A message board & forum for automotive builders, fabricators and customizers who think outside the box.

    I have a suspicion that if GM gets their act together, Uncle Sam will be bought out of it sooner than you realize by the stock market. If the stock starts to rise people will buy it trying to make a buck. That's when Uncle Sam will cash in. If they don't perform they will just die because they got all their likely to get. No mattter what happens, we stil got more for our money that we did from that stupid war in Iraq that we are still pouring money into. We get nothing for that and loose American lives to boot.

    As for making real cars, that will be determined by the market demand.

    Later...

    to me dave that's the problem . the general public as a group not counting us motorheads has settled for CRAP for so long and accepted it that i think it'd going to continue . i for one have owned many cars of rear drive that got as good or better mileage than many of these so called modern miracles . hell that 200 dollar bird i have just averaged a 150 mile trip at 29.7 mpg and i don't baby it like the 53 . had a 85 delta 88 more door that got 28-30 all the time . they were / are still kinda cheesy plastic vehicles , but they were at least rear drive v-8's . the crap will continue i'd be willing to wager .....................

    No worries for cheesey plastic cars. The govt. will crush all of them soon enough. Only thing left will be brand new, and expensive collector old. I, for one who can only afford 10 year old vehicles, will be stuck with what I have, lol.
