Since we now know that he/she is based in Jakarta, Indonesia, it may be a bit harder to get old-school wheels like that over there. I'm certain there'd be some, but probably less than those tucked away gathering dust in sheds & garages across our continent.

I suspect there aren't many countries where the 'bigger is better' trend hasn't bent the car modding hobbie out of shape.

Yeah get rid of those bling wheels and fit dragways or stockers. That way it can look like every other bloody kingswood in ( or out of) the country!!!

Good on him for trying something different.

I think it looks pretty good. :-)

The problem with old holdens these days is everyone thinks they should be kept original or restored to factory or whatever. As long it fits "the mould" it's good and if you step out side of the narrow constraints of what is deemed correct you get bagged.

dimasspiddy,
Don't worry about these blokes picking on your wheels. They're Australians and if an Australian picks on you it usually means he thinks you're OK. (OK is good in 'strayan)
Enjoy your woody.

Brandon, it is an interesting topic that is based on context (look it up in your dictionary) & personal views.

Basically, the practice of buying the latest trendy wheels and putting them on an old car, especially a family sedan, is considered to be a clumsy, awkward way to style a car. It is a bit 'try hard' and is done by people often thought to be just show-offs, with little real understanding of what their car represents.

Modifying a car to look a bit better than original is ok. Modifying it to handle, ride and accelerate better is also fine. However, just slapping massive wheels and low-profile tyres for a pretend image of coolness or sportiness is usually lame.

Most things that are good quality or carefully considered impress people for a long time. Most things that are done to be trendy are NOT high quality or respected for very long.

Hope that makes some sense.

HKing - my special subject tonight: subjectivity.

P.S. Brandon, what do you think of using capitals letters and spelling what you type?

HKing -of Rosewood, that's an interesting reply that is based on conceit (look it up in your dictionary) & personal views.

Basically, it's his car and he can do whatever he likes to it. Telling him it's no good in such a high falutin' manner is a bit 'try hard' and is done by people often thought to be just show-offs. What does his car represent, in your invidious opinion?

Whether objects are good quality or carefully considered is neither here nor there, what matters is if the owner of the car likes it and enjoys using it.

Hope that makes some sense.

Chris - my special subject tonight: cretins.

P.S. HKing, what do you think of my capitals and spelling? I've even got a dictionary.

Better red than dead..

Noice. Maybe I should use the word "godd" instead.
Must have gutted you to type with, err... high falutin words. N' that 'n' stuff.

I was answering a young bloke's enquiry. From his earlier post, I assumed it was a genuine enquiry from someone not yet familiar with what these cars and these sorts of mods represent to a quite a few folk. If I'm of the same opinion (negative) as others regarding huge trendy bling wheels on old Holden family sedans - but actually go ahead and explain it for the young fella - how does that challenge you? I can de-falute it next time by putting in some 'bloody's and droppin' some 'g's, if you like.

I have no doubt the owner thinks it is totally awesome. Doesn't mean the kid can't ask why a bunch of us find putting those wheels on it terrible.

Be as overly sensitive as like though. It doesn't matter a jot to the owner, me or the questioner.

I'm off to quaff champers and do some "philosophsing", whatever that is :-)

"Be as overly sensitive as like though.", whatever that is :-)

The point i was making is that it's not your place to go around hanging [Naughty Pottyword] on people 'cause they can't spell or their grammar isn't up to your exacting standards.

The kid's new to this forum and he most likely doesn't want some bloke patronising him and making him feel silly.

If you have an opinion, express it but don't talk down to people. I doubt you'd use that tone if you didn't know he is 13.

By the way...
What do these cars represent to you?

Chris.

I'd better go and re-gut myself now after typing "with, err... high falutin words. N' that 'n' stuff."

You, I, our new Indonesian member, dimasspidy, and especially Brandon will all be perfectly fine. Diasspidy hasn't seemed too bothered about how I answered Brandon, has he.
A little effort, including using a dictionary occasionally, will NEVER hurt the young fella - in fact it'll only make him stronger. I only know one language (until later this year) so I'm going to continue giving it a good go at using well. [EDIT - Just to help, I'll wave a little flag when being facetious or ironic or inserting intentional syntax/grammar/vocab stuff-ups.]

Top Stuff mate unfortunately some are showing there cultural illiteracy here! In the environment the vehicle is situated its a full on beauty and you should be congratulated for your efforts.
In Oz the big wheel thing is less appealing to a lot off the old school but I detest stockers so im on your side. Quite frankly you can stick your steel wheels and hubcaps where I stuck them thirty five years ago, on the the trailer.

Actually, I don't mind these wheels on an HJ, at least they aren't the type from the US which have centre baskets which keep spinning after the car has come to a halt!! These rims are necessary to allow airflow over the high-tech' four wheel drums as they attempt to slow the vehicle from the high speeds generated by the 130ci export 6.

Its all relevant in the country the car is living in. If we all did the same things to our cars and shot any else down for being individual and going against the grain of whats acceptable in other corners of the world- then we have lost sight of our tolerant nature.

Here is the thing - put yourself in the shoes of the folk you are shooting down and ask yourself how would you feel? I can spell proper, use grammar correctly, string together a coherent sentence and I avoid putting ricer wheels on classic cars - but am I better than everyone else? - No.

I have had a look at the Jakarta Holden scene before- and its amazing what these guys can do with very little. Sure they may put their own twist and do things to the cars we wouldn't - but its relevant to the scene over there.

We should be encouraging the world wide interest in Holdens - not criticising wheel choice and spelling and grammar on other posters- that just makes us look like the dicks- not the folk we are bagging out.

Peace and Zen Micheal-
Cheers streetneat - Andrew.

Who cares what wheels it rolls on?

Really we all love old cars(holdens in particular) and if it wasn't for the people who break the mould then we wouldn't have modified cars!!

The car looks awesome - (wheels are not my bag) but still a cool ride that the builder should be proud of. Doesn't matter what wheels/colour etc its a personal thing and thats what makes the car culture so good. there are so many mods you can do to suit YOUR TASTE.

anyway I still like jellybean mags and will be using them on my FJ when its finished even though most people dont like them at all. If you like something use it, if you don't then just don't do it to your car....

each to their own...
