we were low class when we used gravity bongs.

made them of modified 2 liter coke bottles and used the back of the toilet=)

the rims look ok, but why are they on that piece of junk maxima coupe?
Lol! Maxima? That's the latest (and slowest) Z car, the 350Z.

RE: Plexiglass rims



They look like carbon fibre rims to me.When we raced a modified Fireblade in the early 90s we had a set of composite wheels that we could run either carbon or alloy rims on.I just can't remember who they were made by.What I do remember is that they cost a fortune and on our first race with them at Brands Hatch,my mate binned it and the front rim virtually exploded,and the rear split beyond repair.We didn't bother to replace them.

Someone snatched their fatty mothers giant, grey, faux fur coat when we were kids. We could get about six guys under it and Paul Potter would blow a killer shotgun from a corn cob pipe filled with the cheap Mexican of the day. Great community spirit. We'd head off to the store to get some munchables. I can only imagine what six long-haired totally wasted kids who just sat in a closed environment fumagated with pot smoke for a half hour looked and smelled like.
I found that 5-6 people hotboxing my 73 VW Beetle for about half an hour with a bag of Eugene, Oregon's finest herb created a wonderful aroma. [8D]

So, I bought some alcohol and poured a bunch into one end while I held my hand over the other, and shook the whole business until the scuz was all dissolved. The I drained the liquid out and immediately afterwards the entire tube shattered on the inside surface. It looked cool, but was rendered non-functional.
