Allright, I've noticed this new fad, for some reason there are a bunch of people who seem to think that unless you pour countless thousands of dollars into your car the minute you bring it home, it becomes nothing more then a worthless eyesore. I think these people are wrong.
Our cars aren't cheap, and for some of us being able to afford the MKV was a big step up, and upgrade in itself. This is a thread for pics of cars built, or being built on a budget, whether it may be a student budget like myself, or a family budget, a working mans budget, a "i'm saving money for a house budget", etc. Lets show that you don't need $1000+ wheels and an expensive air setup to have a good looking car, and give inspiration to others.
I'll start, as stated, i'm in University, so my budget for my car is whatever I have left after tuition, books, rent, food, car payment, and insurance, which frankly, is not very much.
And the wheels I am refinishing myself, in a satin black, for this season, they are 17x9.5 all around, Im hoping for a nice flush look.
Im also going to be ordering coils in May when I start working full time again, some thing in the $600-$800 range, V-Maxx or FK most likely, I want them to last and offer a firm ride.
Also, my other budget build, just for fun:
A 1988 Nissan Pathfinder, 3.0L V6 TBI, 4x4 Auto. Doing a 5spd Swap from a parts truck, as well as a 6 inch lift and a bunch of maintenance and replacements on this truck next week, all from parts that I have collected over the winter from various part outs and online sales and specials. I am looking forward to it. I really enjoy working on vehicles!
Theres my budget build(s), now lets see yours!
