Slammed Dawg
Mike Dunn from Bush, Louisiana, is the proud owner of this '87 Mazda B2200. So far, Mike has 'bagged and body-dropped his Mazda 4 inches. The mini has been shaved clean of the door handles, B pillars, gas door, rear, and wiper cowl. To clean up the front end, a Toyota front bumper has been bolted on. Swapping to a five-lug, Mike opted for a Toyota rearend with a custom driveshaft, then bolted up a set of Eclipse GST wheels. Moving inside, Mike added a billet steering wheel and a fiberglass dash that he custom built, along with a set of '91 Nissan Sentra seats. The Slammed Dawg is Championship White with White Pearl. And to round out the mods, Mike beefed up the power a bit with a header, VW exhaust, and a Weber carb.
As President of Wicked Addictions, Mike would like to thank his club, along with David Nelson, Eric Falcone, and David and Teresa Landrum.

Classic Dime
Jason Langley represents Detroit with his '00 Chevy S-10 that he's been building for more than a year now. The suspension consists of Slam 'bags all the way around, 3/8-inch SMC valves, 1/2-inch airline, two 7-gallon air tanks, two Viair 480s, Suicide Doors three-link, Art upper arms, and a custom back half. That stance is kept classic with a set of 18-inch Eagle 212s. The exterior was given a classic touch with a complete shave, flat black, and a 30x30-inch sliding rag top. Moving inside, the interior was treated to a one-off GM concept-truck two-tone, Greg Norman leather seats, a custom console, four 12-inch Alpine Type Rs housed in a custom fiberglass enclosure, along with a motorized amp rack, Infinity components, two Directed D1200s, and a MTX4202 powers the sounds.
Jason has many more plans for his Dime, but assured us it will remain classy and continue to be liked by all genres, from hot rodders to import builders.

Hawaii's Finest
Tommy Dalatowski, a 22 year old, from Portland, Oregon, is the proud owner of this clean-driven Colorado. He bought this '05 Colorado Xtreme Crew Cab in October of 2006 bone stock. In the past year and a half, the exterior has received a full billet Xtreme grille from T-Rex, black headlight housings, black grille emblem, and everything else has been debadged. The taillights are tinted and Tommy installed the 8000k HID conversion with highs, lows, and fogs. Next on the list is a set of Street Scene black electric mirrors and a set of 22-inch Boss 313 black with chrome lip wheels, which are wrapped with 255/30ZR22 Hankook Ventus tires. For performance, Tommy hooked up with HP Tuner's Performance, and an AEM Brute Force.
Keep up the great work, Tommy. We'll see you soon!
