We can't remember anyone asking if a 1985 Chevy Caprice lifted twenty inches on a set of clear, 30-inch wheels could do a burnout, but ladies and gentlemen, you have your answer and it's a resounding YES! Called the Garfield Box, presumably for its orange paint job or love of lasagna, the '85 Caprice is wearing clear "treys" made by MHT wheels that reportedly cost $30,000. A fine investment, for sure, bound to pay itself off somehow. If anything, they'll make a fine set of coffee tables some day.

Check out the video of Garfield Box doing a burnout after the jump, and click the Read link to view more pics of it on Car Domain's blog.

      Again, I ask this question:


      WHY?
      • 7 Years Ago
      I think it's cool that they raised that hunk-of-junk and put some huge cool wheels on it. I've always liked it when people raised Lincoln Continentals and put 36" monster tires on it.

      Clears on one side though... LOL! That's stupid. I wonder long it'll be before they wreck that car and their 30k wheels?

      actually, according to my latest issue of "Donk, Box & Bubble", it is sort of a "thing" to have different rims...and even different colors on different sides of the car. maybe packing more originality into one whip?

      we've got lots of em down here in the south. not my cup of tea, but more power to em...just another love of cars.

      If the wheels & tires cost more than the car you are mounting it on...
      • 7 Years Ago
      Hey, at least with the extreme height, it will be easier to keep the brake dust off the back side of the rims.

      what a joke. Is that a white bot gone crazy. Smack the person who made this car. The best thing that can happen to the vehicle is to wreck it. What a waste of cash....Dude must be on Crack to drive this thing. It does not even look cool!

      What a stupid white boy. HE must be a crack head. Just wreck this car for your integrity shake. A complete waste of cash.

      *If it's so stupid, why does a huge corporation such as Pirelli and MHT (rim manufacturer) sponsor the car.

      *To answer your question about the cost of the tires, they are $2500 a pop.

      *Don't think this trend of customization is limited to the so called "ghetto".
      Half of the cars I see like this are owned by suburban white kids. Do you really think the average person in the ghetto has $7000 to spend on rims. (just like most of rap music is purchased by white kids)

      *Just cause a car has big wheels doesnot make it a Donk.

      *Alot of work goes into these cars, if you don't like the style, you have to respect the workmanship that goes into them.

      I wonder if when "individuals" were lifting their trucks 36" off the pavement and putting big tires underneath creating unbelievable tire noise while they travelled on the road would they have received all the hate-blogging if blogs existed back then?

      What makes America great is that we don't all have to be the same or like the same thing. Find something you like and comment on that. No, I don't own one. I can just see myself stepping out of one of those things and breaking my ENTIRE A** if I did!
