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.

    Come on folks, I know there are other diesel fanatics out there too. Most everthing that I own is diesel powered, just a few more conversions to go. Let's get some discussions going here. Smile

    No Cats in the stable presently, the last one coughed up a hairball at about 65 MPH with no warning. Currently running a 7.3 IDI with 190K, one MB diesel with 210K and another with 268K on the clock. In the bigger trucks there's a 300 Mack and an old Detroit in the LN 8000 ford.
