Is that what they call them? Really? Gee willikers.

What's the point? I don't get it. I kinda like my cars to actually accelerate, stop, and handle WELL...which none of these are capable of. :wacko:

I honestly think I could fit the 235/75r15 Wranglers off my Cherokee inside some of those rims!

Technically, a "Donk" would be a '71-'76 Impala, but the term has been used generically to describe any jacked up car with giant wheels.

I guarantee the revell kits will be worth big bucks in 10 years. These cars may not win any speed records ,but i'd love to see them race . seriously think about a donk hillclimb or even something like a rally scenario. :lol:

They are called "donks" because thats the noise a ball joint makes when it comes apart.

:lol: ..... There are also sub categories of the "Donk". Box or Bubble depending on the general shape of the car's body style.

I believe that the steel company that did the stainless cars used them as a sales tool to advertise the duribility of the product.their top salesmen drove the cars on sales calls,some putting hundreds of thousands of miles on them.A couple of the 36 Fords were eventually canibilized for parts to repair others that had been damaged.
