Re: (89glwiththat)

I don't live in Atlanta, so I don't know about Donks. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

As the creator of the NO BITCHING donk/box/bubble thread, I feel I must chime in on a technicality here.
A "donk" is a 1971-1976 Chevy Impala. The derivation of the term is somewhat foggy, but scholars believe it came from the slang term "donkey" referring to the Impala logo. Another theory holds that "donk" is a bastardization of "dunk", as in "slam-dunk", referring to vehicles which sat nose-high (a.k.a. reverse rake) imitating a basketball player dunking the ball. Any other vehicle which is jacked up to fit 26+" rims is simply a "Hi-Rider".

Lowrider Magazine used to have a spinoff rag called Lowrider Euro which focused on compact/economy cars (many of them, ironically, Japanese or American), but that seems to have been axed. The original magazine still focuses almost entirely on big-body RWD American sleds, which is hands-down what a proper lowrider is made from.

That said, witness the grandeur of the Ford Tempo Lowrider:


Countdown to the arrival of TCL Amish, eurosnobs, and general haters in 3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . .
