WTF Friday: The World’s Biggest Body Drop?

Minitruckers have been chasing ‘more low’ ever since the first coils were cut. When frames hit the ground it wasn’t too long before rockers did.

Then, soon after rockers were planted doors hit the dirt as well. Traditional body drops gave way to stock floor body drops, and after that people went even further eyeing up the lower body line.

A lot of these more drastic body drops were featured in a 2015 WTF Friday post appropriately titled Extreme Body Drops.

The Gregers Garage fullsize Chevy featured in this post was the inspiration for that post.

Gregors Garage took a rough Chevy and went straight up to the lower body line without hesitation. Presumably this was done because everything below that point had returned to the earth.

The truck debuted at a show about this time two years ago under construction. It obviously turned a few heads and I remember seeing the truck on SpeedHunters.

Personally though I forgot the truck shortly after and definitely wasn’t expecting to see it again this clean.

Seeing the truck with fresh paint laid out on carpet really puts into perspective how damn low the thing really is.

The fact that the hood closes and the wheels don’t pop up over the the bedsides is truly impressive. Accomplishing this was no easy feat.

A factory small block would have had no hope of fitting under the hood, so it’s been replaced with a motor from an Alfa Romeo of all things.

Being fairly flat the motor allowed the hood to close fully. More importantly the hood does so without a cowl. Huge cowls or just plain motors protruding damn near over the roof is usually what kills the lines on these types of body drops.

Inside the floor, tunnel, dash, and really everything else has been completely redesigned and reconfigured to make everything work.

Notice the brake master cylder is now behind the dash because there was simply no room for it under hood.

The truck doesn’t appear to be fully complete quite yet, but it’s pretty close. Follow Gregers Garage on Facebook if you want to see this one scrape past the finish line.

Wonder what it looks like driving…

WTF Friday: Little Red Trailer

With the fall of message boards Kijiji has often become my go to source for WTF Friday content.

Half baked, half started ideas, abandoned projects, dusty show cars. There’s so much on Kijiji to see.

Since spring officially spring just two days ago the real “perfect” summer toys are yet to come. However, there are still some funky gems ripe for the impulse buy. One such example is this little red MG trailer.

Vehicles made into trailers are far from a new idea, but this is the first time I’ve seen the front half used of a vehicle used.

Most trailers use the back half like below:

As a trailer the MG really isn’t the right car. It’s a small two-seater that didn’t have much cargo room stock.

However, motor removed, and spun around it does offer, some level of cargo room.

Designed to be tugged along by a motorcycle rather than a car, the little trailer more than doubles the average motorcycles cargo space.

What it does for the gas mileage is of course up for debate. But above and beyond all that it makes an interesting visual statement, especially when paired with a three-wheeler (that may or may not tip at any time).

The combination of these two odd balls, three-wheeler, and MG trailer, was enough to warrant re-posting.

Buy it to use as a trailer, or buy it for MG parts. Whichever you fancy it is currently listed for $1,700 on Kijiji.ca.
