Look what I ran into this weekend

A friend of mine owns a dealership in Rockwall, TX. He had some work done by Status which is a shop also in Rockwall. I walked in and saw all kinds of cool custom cars. Then I walked into the next room and saw this thing. Its supercharged, bagged, shaved 2010 SS. It won a GM design award at the 2009 Sema sho. The guys in the shop built it in 8 weeks for sema. The family that ran the shop were sooo cool and answered all my questions and handed my a beer while I was asking them. I up loaded pics i found on the net and a youtube video, figured no one would want to see my crappy cell phone pics. Probably not for everyone but I def liked it.

that is pretty sweet. I don't know about how it would actually drive. I think it would have a hard time making it over RR tracks.

All you need to do is hit the airbag switch and it would raise the car up like hydraulics to a regular ride height.

I remember seeing a bagged Ford Ranger shortly after I got my S-10. He slammed it down in the Kroger parking lot that I worked at at the time to show off to his friend. It malfunctioned and he couldn't get it back off of the ground. I laughed so **** hard as I got into the stock-suspension S-10 and vroomed off.
This was **** near 5 years ago, btw.

This car has been bagged and Body dropped.

body dropped ? Body dropped is where you cut the floor out of the car and move it up maybe a inch or 2 ( depends on how much you body drop it ) and reweld the floor into place.
When bagging a Car or usually a Truck when it lays frame still see clearance between the ground and the body a BODY DROP drops the body where it 100% lays frame and body.


As gm454 said hit the Switch and the more than likely firestone bag raises the car and drives with 100% smooth ride. Probably better than factory



YES YES I used to be a mini trucker when I was younger nothing like Dimes , kota's and Taco's aka s10's , Dakotas and Tacomas


I would never do this to a Camaro imo its a different type of vehicle.

oh and GM454 rule #1 when in a shop where bagging or this crowd hangs around you never stand around without a beer in your hand.


you think this is cool ? Go to TEXAS HEAT WAVE in Austin

ahhhhh memories lol
