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 Charger,

    When we gonna see you start a build thread??? From what little I've seen it looks like your truck would make an interesting one. Using that EFI 5.0L alone should make for some interesting stuff. Due to lack of old design resources we are all having to learn how to retrofit the old with the new. Anything any of us experience and learn is always beneficial to the rest of us. It's getting to be almost impossible to stay extremely old school and quite frankly it's starting to get ridiculous to even try. Besides, what's not to like about have a cool looking old truck with the handling and convenience of a modern vehicle???

    Anyway, I think we'd all like to see you start a build thread. If it's a matter of difficulty with picture posting, we have lots of help here.

    Later Man...

    i lost the itch!! ran into money problems and there it sits! i was at a local rod arama show this weekend and they chopped a 55 merk f100 pretty cool, they did it the ``proper way`` using a donor roof for a skin, the only thing i didn`t like about it was the back window was also chopped. yeh i should start a build thread but i already have a bunch of component build threads, what do i do with those? include them in the build??
