Actually, the rest of the rim was still on the tire. Not a real beadlock, since the outside part of the rim broke off in the impact. He hit HARD!

Hidden solenoids, probably. Mind you nowadays they probably just use some kind of remote control instead.

No idea about the doors but the inside is super yellow as well as the yellow tint. You would need sun glasses at night - not cause your that cool but cause it's so darn bright ha. Wish I got a better shot of the massvie hood scoop.

I had to follow that hummer link just to see if that thing was real. Very real. He also has some youtube videos of it.

Just amazing how bad people's taste can be. Glad he likes it though.

Oh man, I have got to get a picture of a hummer that I see at times around here. He also has a 300zx that he trashed.
Then there is this Cadillac I see at times. Won't even try to describe them but now I have to keep in mind to get pictures.
