Final Showdown
Nathan Mahaffey of Lansing, NC, is off to a great start with his '88 Toyota Pickup. Well, rolling with his club, Twisted Torsion, he would have to be. Mods that are already at home on his 'Yota are 18x8-inch Colorado Custom Pikes Peak wrapped in 215/35ZR18 Nitto 555 rubber, a Showdown accessories cowl hood, Checkmate hard tonneau cover, FBI chrome grill, '89-'95 Toyota chrome bumper/valance, clear corners and bumper lights with billet covers, euro taillights, and a Billet Accessories Direct Heatseeker steering wheel. Plans for future mods are plentiful, as Nathan would like to add a full FBI air ride system with four-link, a Street Beat ragtop, a major stereo system, a Weber carb kit, lots of billet pieces, an FBI Lexan window, House of Kolor paint, a 3-inch body drop, and shave everything. You have a lot of work left with your future aspirations. Good luck!

This is Benjamin Smith from Walnut Cove, NC, and his '91 Mitsubishi Mighty Max. Ben bought this truck from his dad in '97 and since then has changed basically everything. Since this truck's "Ridin' Around" debut back in '92 or '93 it has received updates such as a chrome front end, a body kit, molded hood scoop, a new SnugTop, clear lights all the way around, 17-inch wheels, and a new interior-including TV, DVD, two 15-inch Orion subs, Orion 6-1/4-inch door speakers, Orion 2150 amp, polished gauges, and a carpeted bed insert. Ben has plans to redo this truck with airbags, new paint, a new interior, a new stereo, and an updated SnugTop. Way to keep the family heirloom rollin'. Now "git-r-done!"

Kickin' It Old School
Bob Kelly of Danville, IN, is a 69-year-old kid at heart that loves nice cars and trucks. Yes, you read that correctly: 69. Bob rolls a '96 S-10 Fleetside Super Sport that is driven daily. Bob's dime features a Gaylord tonneau cover, lowered suspension, a bed rug, Xenon ground effects on the side with a Wings West front air dam, a Lund wiper cowl, smoked headlight covers, and dual exhaust. Most of his parts are straight from Stylin' Concepts. Nothing makes him happier than having a sharp little driver. We couldn't agree more, Bob. This shows that you never have to grow out of the things in life that you love.
