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.

    Hi Folks,

    Recently I was killing time at a local Border's Book Store. About once every year or so I take a look at the magazine rack. I have quit buying mags because I have a problem with paying three to five bucks for 75% advertising content. So, I do my mag reading there and once in a great while I buy something if there is content worthwhile to me. One mag I look for is OL' SKOOL RODS. I find it a novel piece of entertainment but in addition to that they have a guy who editorializes in each issue. His latest edotorial which is previewed here, http://www.olskoolrodz.com/happy-daz/ is something I think everybody shouild read. So far I have not found it complete anywhere online, but going to this link will tell you waht it is about. You can probably do as I did and go to a magazine counter and read it without buying the mag. The title of the piece is HAPPY DAZ' by Cadillac Joe Vincent.

    In this editorial Joe sumarizes the situation at hand and makes a case for saving the American car industry. I for one have my own reasons for wanting to see the Big 3 survive and I openly admit there are priobably a l;ot of good cases for not bailing them out. However sometimes the logical thing is not always the best thing to do and I believe this guy does make a case for that point. I strongly urge all of you to find this piece and read it.

    Later Folks...
