I know half you of are going to say point less on a vette, but its pointless on anything.

I think it looks bad ass

Looks ok. Not the style of car to be bagged I think.
I bet he's the first to do it though. icon_cool.gif

other than the owners need to trim/tuck the front under spoiler I think its pretty sweet.

I'm not set on the wheels, but i'd sport it.

I am curious as to how it handles though.

How can you not like it? that thing looks bad ass!
it's a great car by itself but to pimp it out to that level is freaking sweet!
Do you have any idea how much ***** you could get in that car by itself? much less something like that being bagged.. you'd beat 'em off with a **** stick! (or maybe they'd be beating off your stick?)

And what purpous is that? Comments like that bother me cause they make no sence at all. This thing will handle better on the right air setup then it will from the factory

A car doesn't have a specific purpose. It's whatever the hell the owner wants to do with it. Sure, I want to throw thousands of dollars with of performance parts and suspension onto my car, but how many 500+ HP Grand Ams do you see?

Now it's not what I would do with a vette but it's his so whatever.

I don't know why but it seems to enhance the curves of the car, makes it look like it's oozing over the wheels. Very nice!

looks baddass indeed, I do think that I would cry if I saw it scraping frame. Pork is right though, the right air ride setup can definitely add to the handling.

A lot of tool's drive Vette's. I probably get more WITHOUT it because have more time for it than just working constantly to make the payments.

that thing is gorgeous...

the front air dam trim has helped me many times when going down slopes and out of driveways so it is more useful leaving it on...

HIGHLY doubt it. You would have a good bit of work to do to make the air setup handle better. The stock handling is quite amazing especially if it is optioned with the magnetic ride control.

if the guy was smart he would have bought the rollers that are made to go on the front 2 frame pieces, making the airdamn worthless for any "scraping" purpose.

Is it safe to drive at highway speeds with a car that's bagged while it's raised up at a normal height? Seems to me if the answer is no, this really isn't practical for daily drivers since you wouldn't be driving down the interstate that low.

Of course it's safe. If it wasn't, nothing would have bags on it.

I put 43,000 miles on the impala after I bagged it, and I guaranty you it wasn't all city miles.
