Theme Tuesdays: Body Dropped…..Cars!?

1

In the truck community body dropping (custom guys argue that it is called channelling but that’s a discussion for another day) is pretty much par for the course, but among the car driving population it’s done far less often.

Understandable because most cars produced in the last twenty or so years don’t have any frames to speak of which means that technically can’t body drop them.

When faced with no frame to work with what most people do is raise all the suspension pick up points, and the floor, and call it a body drop, or scrap the uni-body all together and slide a frame underneath.

Today’s post contains a little bit of both, go figure there area few weird platforms in here too.

At least I assume this is the same car as the one above… unless there is two… there isn’t two is there?

This Lada has had the sub frame and floor moved up higher to get it sitting down low

The look on the guys face in the white shirt matches mine when I found this build on s10forum

The bucket is one of the first ‘bodied’ Volkswagens I read about. Sadly the build thread along with the car seem to be dead.
