Re: Skipau

Re: Skipau

This car was at easternats last year 2004 . it drove past my wife and i at about 20 kays an hour and sounded like it was dragging chains about underneath it . the suspension etc clanked and rattled that much . purely a show car . very interesting to look at how it was set up though . got the front wheel almost a metre off the ground with the hydraulics . diff looked pretty huge with all the braces welded to it . and the gold trimmed american low rider wheels looked a treat.
