Yeah no good pics of my Civic yet, but I did manage to find my 97 Dakota. This was my first truck and first show vehicle. I've got an entire wall of trophies from this thing. Full custom air ride (reverse triangulated 4 link rear), a wall of 8 12's, Wings West body kit, and Sherwin Williams Flo. Green paint. Air ride ran off of two full size nitrogen tanks in the bed and all the lines were custom made 1/2" hydraulic hoses. Just thought I'd like to share it with you. Let me know what you think.

Just from that picture it looks great! If I did a show truck in the compact section I would fix up a Dodge Dakota over a S10(<--Overrated). Would like to see more pictures. And pics of your civic when you get them.

The Dakota definitely rules over the S10...so much more room and more power. Mine had the 318 V8 in it
That was my labor of love for 3 1/2 years...I miss it so much now...some idiot's dad bought it for him and then he went around and told everyone that he built. The rest of the people that were in my car club helped him get his story straight.

You would think that it being the love of my life I would've taken millions of pics of it but this is the only one I could find. Really pisses me off...

Nice looking truck, so clean, I love to see show cars that can win without all the stupid paint jobs that have 30 layers of paint. Nice work man!

A Dakota is a midsize and the S10 is a mini so they're not even in the same class... and S10's are deff NOT overrated... over done maybe but not overrated ... think of them as the civic of trucks

That pic is bagged, but my driveway goes at a funny angle and plus I had a real hard time coming up with the right offsets for wheels so they would tuck. My stocks tucked and laid frame but those 18" Helo's just sat on the tires. That truck has the worst bolt pattern known to man (6x4.5) Not nearly as many selections as the good ol' S Dime.

Thank you for correcting me never got in to the truck scene. And about the S10's that is what I meant just didn't come out right.

I finished it and ran out of stuff to do...plus I got first place trophies at all the car shows I wanted to get them at so I felt I finished the job. After the Dakota I had an 01 Tiburon (lasted 5 months), then a 94 Chevy 1500 (started to become a show truck and then someone offered to buy it so I sold it), and then I got the Civic like 6 months ago.
