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.

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

    Too beautiful to drive, but it had so many styling features I spent close to an hour looking at it. Thought you might like to see it too. He left virtually nothing untouched in his build.













    The workmanship was top notch. I'm sure he will hate to get his first scratch or rock chip on it.

    I have seen a few done up to this level. that are beautiful but I could never drive one around as it would make me extremely paranoid and nervous. I'm betting this is a trailer queen...

    I'm sure you're right, but some of those touches would be just as awesome in black suede. I've had the most fun out of some of my "primered up, drive as you build" rides. Been the show car route, won't ever go back. Besides, when I go to a show, I'm always attracted to the builder rides.

    Anyway, if you look closely at that truck, he has a lot of tricks done to it that most people never even notice.

    I couldn't agree more... Funny you should mention it, but I too have been attracted to some of the poorest work just because the builder had a really unique idea. Any good idea can be refined and improved upon. I know rat rodders take a lot of heat and a lot of it is deserved but I have seen some really unique atuff come out of their work. It's juast a matter of sorting the wheat from the chaff.
