|OWNER'S NAME: ||Brent Sheets |
|YEAR & MAKE: || ’89 Mazda standard cab |
|LOCATION: ||Camp Lejune, North Carolina |
Wheels/Tires: The Mazda sports 18-inch Center Line Thruster wheels with BFGoodrich Euro T/A radial tires. Mods: Shaved door handles, shaved wiper cowl, shaved front marker lights, shaved fuel door, shaved tailgate, and a shaved antenna all serve to give this truck a smooth look. Other mods include a billet grille, a 4Runner front bumper/valance, and a pair of old-school S-10 taillights. Inside the bed are a pair of custom wheel tubs. Chassis/Suspension: The Mazda is 'bagged on all four corners, allowing it to get down to the ground. MIC Mass-Flow 1/2-inch valves make dumping or adding air to the suspension system a snap, while a four-link and a bridge notch allow maximum drop, without leaf springs. Airflow comes from a nitrogen tank mounted in the bed. Miscellaneous: When Brent isn't dragging his Mazda around at shows, he's an active U.S. Marine. With that in mind, we wanted to get Brent's Maz' on film before he shipped out to Afghanistan to serve his country. He wants to thank his family and his girlfriend for their undying support. Plans: Because Brent is serving our country in the Marine Corps right now, the truck is temporarily on hold. We have no doubt, though, that one day soon this Mazda will be kicking just as much ass it its owner.Project Completion Date: "As soon as I get out of the Marine Corps."
