I'd imagine hes working on it and using the donuts for the time being...

I still wouldn't drive it like that, but I can understand its just an interm thing.

Heck he's halfway there it looks like!

Edit: good call on the diff, almost forgot all about it!

Maybe he was smart and disconnected the front prop shaft

Hmm, a marketing gimmick for his nightclub. Wonder if that means he can write-off the Chrome vinyl transformation job as a business marketing expense?

I don't drive it at all like that, I was in the middle of swapping tires.

I gotta say the 2 door rrc with the side facing rear seats does not suck IMO. Well maybe because of the color.

Yeah and it has an 80s vintage horse babe at the wheel AND it's got a trailer hooked up. Pretty darn cool.

Wow – that makes me want to barf.

I hope AB received prior consent before commercially exploiting Kim K’s “name, likeness and personal attributes” or here comes the frivolous lawsuit.
