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.

Just what every two person retired household needs... Yeah, right...

    1960 Mercury Meteor 4D sedan ( This one was a slightly damaged fire chief's car with the police interceptor package. It was big, heavy and fast. This was the last year it was a full size car)
    1967 Ford Galaxy 500 4D sedan. ( 390, bought it slight damaged when it was only a month old, drove it into the ground and then used part of it in several other vehicles)
    1974 Ford Econoline cargo van
    1972 Ford F-250 long bed Pick up
    1987 Aerostar van long body. ( New and super deluxe with all the bells and whistles)
    1988 Ford / Starcraft custom high top van ( same as above)
    1989 Ford F-350 crew cab 4WD
    1993 Ford Econoline E-350 one ton diesel cargo van (Still got it, with 256K on the clock)

    1. 1978 F150 4x4 I still have it, and while I owned all the others, I still drove it for work and play, just was bad on gas. And I didn't have a home to store any projects, lol.

    2. 1976 Toyota Corolla Deluxe
    3. 1969 Chrysler New Yorker
    4. 1979 Chrysler Lebaron
    5. 1983 Chevrolet Chevette
    6. 1978 F150 4x4 (another one)
    7. 1976 Dodge ext. cab pickup 4x4
    8. 1966 Bronco
    9. 1973 1210 IHC pickup 4x4
    10. 1987 Bronco II
    Then I got a place to live, and the total jumped a lot, lol. A few more dentside Fords mostly. Sprinkled in with a few more IHC 4x4's, and some 80's Ford 4x4's. And now a turn for the old iron.
