Oh my God that's sick... Although there is no way the Skyline will make it out of my village with that drop. We have gutters disguised as road humps. :lol:

Pics. My VW is lowered 2" in Detroit of all places and I have no trouble. And when I say no trouble, I've never scraped on anything but deep snow.

Just lower the thing and figure the rest out later!

Hmm... I know you say you have bad roads... but that goon is hurtin' for more of a lowering! Or at least fill in that gap with rubber. Looks good otherwise... think I like the previous wheels better though.

Sooner or later I'll get around to flushing the Goon... :D

On a lighter note I found this rare emblem...

Wonder where it came from... :roll:

Dude, how do you get so MANY different sets of RARE old school wheels?!! :shock:

I, like some people, always got the impression, that the Philippines is a poorer country, economy wise...... but when it comes to JDM old school alloys, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia are TOPS, when it comes to variety... even Japan can't mess with you guys. lol

My mom was born in Manila, and she's going on a trip to Quezon City with my lil brother, 2 years from now... I think I'm gonna have to go with them, just so I can see the rich JDM car culture, the Philippines has to offer...

As well as, score a few sets of old school JDM rims. :) :tu:

I hear that the US dollar is equivalent to 10-100 Ph pesos(not sure, on that one). So I'll be big PIMPIN. :lol:

I guess us Southeast Asians never threw away anything... :lol: Most of what we have are old stocks, and they are still pretty obtainable in any given used wheel shops. Hook me up if you get the chance to come here, I'll be glad to show you around... Start saving up too. Right now the conversion is $1-44 PhP (pesos) so $500 will get you 1 or 2 sets depending on conditon and/or authenticity- there are many good copies around too.
:wink:

Thank you, for the invite, Retro. :wink: :tu:

I'll definitely look you up, when I'm in Quezon City. A friend of mine, just spent last summer visiting Cebu. It was great, she said.

Now, if I buy a few sets of wheels... is there a problem with customs, as far as getting the rims to the US is concerned?

BTW, when we get there, the lumpia, adobo and pancit are on me. :) :tu:

Sure thing! :wink:

As far as shipping, we could probably do door to door express. Believe me Pinoys are experts on this.. We ship whole balikbayan boxes of Filipino food back there.. :lol:
