not really. i have found that most people who aren't ghetto or trying to be ghetto arent into huge wheels on cars. although, some cars dont look bad with 20 inch wheels.

If its a large size vehicle and the 20s fit the look of the body its fine. My car has 17s and the truck has factory 20s on it. looks just fine but I wouldnt slap 26s on the truck and 20s on the car.

I think you honestly would like to meet me. The best part of that being that you would realize the shallow stereotypes above are completely wrong. Not one little drop of the post I made said anything along the lines of "LOL minorities don't drive Mustangs and all black people drive Caprices with 24s." I'm sorry that somehow thats the message you got out of that. I found the way that guy said what he said to be incredibly funny so I posted it. I imagine you find some things that white trash say funny too, I guess that makes you racist.

Its funny that a while back I posted a comment that also questioned why there was a culture that believed in the exact same stereotype you proposed me to fall under and I got blasted for it.

This was my quote on 8/18/2010

So you might want to re-evaluate your judgements on me. I bet you think i'm white too.

Dont have a judgement to "re-evaluate on you to be honest pimpin' and I never said you were "white" there are PLENTY of races out there. JUst responded to your comment and didnt appreciate you saying "rockwell was never in the army and has never been to war". When in fact I served 10years 7months in the army and deployed 4times while serving before getting hurt. So you may want to "re-evaluate" that judgement you placed towards me when you made that statement bossman.. The remaining heat from you making that statement towards me is part of what made me respond to you today.

And I agree with everything you put in that post regarding "candy paint" and the mustang world. Bc you see it ALOT on youtube and the track if a sports car has rims or a different paintjob or a video with a muscle car in it and rap music is playing. The comments there get beyond stupid/ignorant.

yeh. but then again 90% of the comments on youtubeare ignorant to start with regardless of the video. besides, out where i am there is a black guy with a 68? Cougar with 18s on the front, 20s on the rear, and candy red over silver. the car looks really good. it doesn't matter what color you are, bad taste is bad taste.

agreed thats why me and NOBODY in my extended family roll with the crazy paint and supersize rims its ok on some but gets above and beyond on others and it just doesnt fit well with muscle cars period. I dont even hardly look for 70s or 80s cutlass supremes anymore bc they are either lifted or banged up and loaded with batteries for hydros.

Thanks to everyone who have shared their responses to this thread, although I am little disappointed that it has gotten to this. Stereotypes aside I think everyone has their own thoughts as to what is "cool" or "not cool". So putting all that aside I think I am going to wait on it right now and hold onto the truck and just build the GT. Like some said then I have the best of both worlds. I was legitimately going to throw the truck up on ebay this weekend, but have decided to hold off. My daughter loves my truck and would be sad if I got rid of it.

outdated? look at the dyno sheets, and a boss has better handleing than an stiffend IRS? not sure. My buddy just plowed his boss 302 2012 into a tree, cause he lost it in a corner. Would he have lost an IRS? Who knows? But I am getting the powertrain fox my 91 foxbody and he is getting a new BOSS. I loved his BOSS. But the aerodymanics are like pushing a box and I like my terminators, the boss clutch is alittle sissy on pedal stiffness, good habits die hard.

Well, since this has been revived... no question for me, I'd absolutely get the BOSS302. It is a well balanced all around car right out of the factory, but has a huge amount of power potential if you decide to FI in the future.

+1 on the revival lol, it is funny to see my old response. It's kinda funny that in almost 2 years I have changed my mind and would Ike to have a boss now. I love my B but the thought of having new amenities is appealing, and the creaks and rattles are starting to annoy me
