Default Video: Houston Swangas 6th Gen.Monte Carlo

This is a radically different style of wheels some of the cars in the Houston area are running. About 8 seconds into the video is a Green 6th Gen. Monte Carlo. Scope out his wheels and the spare tire "Droppin 5th) at the trunk. Refreshing to see what the other areas of the country are doing with their cars. I need to get me some wheels like this, like the Chariots of old, with blades...

Cool

That is pretty wild for sure. But now I really dislike the Candy Luxurious Lepracon Irish Green, and Ridiculous Candy Rosey Red.
Those crazy wheels would be tough to keep clean. Regular Wire wheels are tough to keep clean.
What if these guys lock wheels during the cruise, like 2 White Tail Deer, that would rip the wheels right off.
You and I might not be able to video this parade ??

That would be a sight seeing 2 cars swangas getting interlocked. never thought of that. Make some out of 36" rebar and attend a show, ouch.

There are actually about 6 of the 6th Gen. Monte Carlos in the video, gold, green, red.

You are right, probably would be tough to film the video with out something eventually going down...

Well....everyone is entitled to there own taste. Love the custom leather interiors, but somewhere there has to be consideration for practicality.

Those wheels remind me of a combine harvester:

This video popped up on You Tube when I entered a search for Combine Harvester:
