I met a guy that did custom suspension for a 69 firebird and had it on 37' s believe it was even 4wd. I thought it was cool because it wasnt one of those hack jobs were they just put the car body on a truck frame. he used it to pull a boat but was told he did a couple passes and hit 12' s.
He needs to do some custom body work so the tires look like they have some logical relationship to the wheel wells! Right now the side view is just plain ugly (well there are a lot of reasons that thing is ugly, but the wheel wells could be "fixed") .
Got news for him, the car was probably very salvageable with all the reproduction metal out there. I'm sure it was just easier to drop it on the 4x4 chassis he had laying around after he probably rolled his truck.

When I worked at autozone I had a guy come in asking about a lift kit for his cutless so he could put 24's on it. After explaining to him that we were a parts store for cars so we didnt carry that stuff he got pissed and stormed out. So at the time I had a 81 grand prix and I had the idea of lifting it up putting some 31's(tires) on it and putting a chrome 31 on the side...
