Off Road

Postby itsmehb » Thu Nov 26, 2020 9:26 am

Was going through my saved pictures and found this 89 RS. May even be a member now or at one time in our past. Looks like a well done off roader, including a leaf spring front end and I'm sure many mods that are hidden. I remember keeping it because I thought driving across that 4 log homemade bridge must have required a mistake free adventure, even stopping midway for a picture. Any body recognize the car or driver?

Wonder what became of it? On the one hand, I hate to see such a rare vehicle so heavily modified, but on the other it looks like a quality job. I hate seeing the straight axle conversions where the front axle is placed so far forward the bumper can't be used. Dennis
