      Here's what's up, the original Donk/Box/Bubble thread got all gummed up with bitching and whining. In this thread, we do three simple things:

      1) post pictures of donks, boxes, bubbles, or anything similar

      2) respond with previously-unseen pictures or short, concise statements of personal taste (i.e., "I like it" or "Too much for me")

      3) enjoy a fun, entertaining thread


      We DO NOT:

      1) bitch, whine, argue, accuse, point fingers, or engage in e-thuggery

      2) talk about race. This is a thread about CARS, not people.

      3) talk about how unsafe these things are. I'm more concerned about the Powerstroke trucks with soot-belching stacks and 40" boggers that can't see me thru their 5% tinted windshields.

      4) repost pictures. Come on y'all

      All that being said, let's get the ball rolling

      I didn't really like this style when they started hittin' the streets but they grew on me. I've got respect for anyone who has enough time, patience, and determination to make their vision come true.

      I think with some more tasteful looking wheels, these things would look worlds better.

      Meh at the tasteful wheels...this isn't about tasteful.

      These are "blow ya brains out, blind you with my wheels, and get everyone's attention within a 5000ft. radius" type cars. That's what they are made for and that's why I like them.

      I drive a pretty undercover car but I'd love to make a change every once in a while to a box.


    8. 12-28-2006 02:31 AM #8
      Yeah, I agree with you there.

      I guess what I was saying was I wouldn't mind driving one with some nice wheels. It'd be like driving an SUV on 26's. Something I'd like to ride around town with.

      As is? I'd be a little embarassed by the purple wheels

      Why is it called "Donk/Box/Bubble". Not complaining, just honestly curious.

      A Donk is a 71-76 chevy Impala or Caprice that sits on 22 to 26 inch rims.

      A Bubble is a late model, 90's Chevy caprice.

      A Box is a early to mid-eighties Chevrolet Caprice and Malibu.

      do bumper height laws come into play with these cars?

      trucks running 44s (or big mudin' tires) and lift kits usually have their bumpers raised at lest 12+ inches from the stock height...so does bumper height laws affect raised trucks the same as raised cars?

      some people get pulled over because their car is lowered...would someone driving these get pulled over because their bumper is too high.

      Since low riders have already been done...I guess it is time for "high" riders...If you have the money and it is what you like, sure, why not...

      I see donks/boxes/bubbles all the time in vallejo and will have to take pics more often.

      Tell ya the truth, I'd love to put 26s on a slightly lifted pickup.

      I'm guessing that someone somewhere has had a vehicle-to-donk collision. Anyone aware of what happens next? I can imagine the officer writing the report finding numerous ride-height-related violations. ...which would trickle down to the owner's insurance.

      I just moved down to florida from nyc a few months ago...and these things are all over the place. didn't know there was a name/term for them. 3/4 of the time the wheels probably cost more than the actual car. And i see of lot of them with badly banged out/rolled fenders. To each their own.

      I've never seen one of these on the road in SoCal (might not be street legal here).

      Is this a regional thing??

      I wished I had my camera with me a couple of weeks ago. I pulled up (16 near Somerset) next to a guy in a box who had done the cleanest box job I've seen in person yet. I was so occupied with the fact that he had fully colormatched the rims of his gold Daytons to the body paint (deep maroon) that I forgot to check what exact model car it was. Anyway, I actually rolled down my window to compliment him on a really sharp version of a box. Knowing my general attitude toward design, I was shocked at myself, but it was nice car!

      Hey Bitchpants McSandytwat, get out of my thread.


      Totally unsafe? Clearly you don't live in the country. Out here in hicksville we've got all kinds of lifted Jeeps, pickups, and SUVs bombing around. You wanna talk unsafe? Ever see a lifted '80's pickup with such bad alignment its front wheels are shimmying? I see these things doing 80 on the highway, and you can bet yer azz they haven't upgraded the brakes. For every lifted donk in this thread I can show you a pickup lifted higher, whose body has a higher COG to start with, and whose tires are NOT meant for pavement.

      Fixed that for you. I don't know why, but I do kinda like these things. I normally hate flashy stuff, especially when it is only for the sake fo flash, but a small part of me really enjoys these. I would take on over a pimped out SUV 8 days a week.
