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.

    *stands up*
    My name is Jason and I am a Alch....wait wrong group....*ahemmm* I am a darksider.

    I am out of Des Moines IA and probably epitomize what a darksider is all about.

    My projects consist of the following

    1972 Citroen DS 19, needs a clutch but otherwise its all there and ready to go.

    1953 F100, torn down and waiting to go under construction. It will be sub-framed with a 75 camaro clip in a way that allows the clip to sit high in the fenders which will accomplish the same thing as Z'ing the frame. It will be bagged front and rear with my own control arms and I plan on putting a triangulated four link out back to the nine inch. She will have a 1959 Pontiac 389 tri-power with a 2004r. I have all these parts and am just waiting until I get my other project close to finished before I start on this one.

    1984 Isuzu Pup long bed, its bagged front and rear, triangulated four link and lays frame. I am trying to figure out what kind of oddball engine I should stuff under the hood… I have a flathead out of the 53, that might be too radical… but the search continues. It needs body work which should be done this summer.

    Hello Dave and other darksiders,

    I was invited to join following a lengthy drive across the very large state of Ohio (from beyond the North-west corner to the extreme South-east corner) to purchase parts for my wife's 1989 Cougar XR7.
    I was raised on a farm, my Dad is a mechanical engineer and my grandfather was a machinist. I assisted my father in the restoration of a 1953 Kaiser, 1957 Studebaker Silver Hawk, (2) 1959 Cadillac coupes, and a 1960 Buick LeSabre convertible. Now I have the Buick, the XR7, a pair of Mustangs/Capri and a couple of trucks.
    I’m excited to be invited in and look forward to learning more about the other members and their accomplishments. Boiler
