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.

    1950 F-1.The PO had made a 4x4 out of it.The frame is bent and nearly broke into where a power stering sector was wield on. It had a tooo wide rear axel put under it. For tire clearence he used a tourch and cut the fender wells out of it. I have the sheet metal off and have started the rust repair.I bought a 1996 Ford explorer with all wheel drive-302-Automatic.Thats going to be my running gear.Love my old nifty 50,were the same age.

    Hi Bob,
    Well, it looks like we have another guy using an Explorer chassis. Pretty soon we can form a club. Keep us posted and put up some pictures.

    Later Man...
