Chicks Drag Daily

Rebecca Creech from Orlando, Florida, is definitely breakin' necks at every corner. She rolls her '95 fully 'bagged GMC Sonoma everywhere she goes-not just for the attention, but because she has a genuine interest in the mini-truckin' scene. Rebecca's a proud member of Outlandish Trends and as such has really gone all out to represent. The interior's been treated to a host of matching lime green goodies, and her 'bagged stance looks perfect tuckin' the 17-inch billet wheels. Don't be mad because the girls are really beginning to break out in the scene! Be glad that we will have better scenery at the shows. Keep on draggin', Rebecca. Don't pay attention to the haters. They're everywhere, trust us.

Little Truck in the Big City

Well, not quite New York, New York, but Cliff Cuff from Rosendale, New York, holds it down in the Northeast with his layed-out, bright yellow '91 Chevy S-10. Since there's plenty of down time in the cold winters, Cliff began this truck as a high school project, which he bought wrecked for $500. Well, three years later, with a little help, the truck is slammed to the floor on 20-inch wheels with an interior that a Porsche owner would envy. Cliff stays busy slowly turning his first-gen dime into the mini-truck of his dreams. He already has plans for this winter to be taken up inside the garage, Sawzall in one hand and beer in the other as he stock floor body-drops his dime to finish her off.

Five Years in the Making

Julian Vidales from El Paso, Texas, has been working on his '99 Chevy S-10 for the better part of five years. This labor of love was a slow and steady process, as Julian had to save up to get as far as he wanted on his new-school S-10 with a little old-school flavor. He wanted to keep it real classy and traditional, right down to the 18-inch American Racing Torque Thrusts. The Chevy is 'bagged all the way around to give it a lowered hot-rod stance, and the Torch Red paint with old-school flames seals the deal. For extra touches, Julian shaved off the door handles and mirrors and mounted a set of billet mirrors on top of the door pillar. Very classy, proving that it doesn't take a lot of money to drive a clean truck every day.

Hard to Modify

Kevin Anderson from Severen, Maryland, faced a rather big challenge when he chose to go the custom route with his '00 Ford Explorer Sport. There's a reason why you see very few fully 'bagged and custom Explorers. There are actually very few aftermarket parts available, since the custom industry didn't take much notice to the Explorer SUV. But this challenge is what drives Kevin to slowly fix up his Explorer as time and (most of all) money permit. Since Kevin works at a body shop, he took it upon himself to make several parts from other cars work on his ride. This includes the HID foglights from a Lexus, the hood scoops from a Thunderbird, and even the grille back from the Silverado SS. To keep things comfortable, the interior has received hosts of stereo upgrades and suede all the way around. Kevin also beefed up the motor and dropped his Explorer down to a more sporty level. He plans to keep the project rolling, as long as nothing gets in the way.
