Re: Pimped Out Astro's

I like Astros, it's a really versatile platform to do all kinds of stuff with or to. None of the other manufactures have a comparable model.

Re: Pimped Out Astro's

I have sen several and still haven't found one that I like. They just aren't meant to be customized. Well actually the one I did like was setup for stereo competition only. Had motor and everything remove and the doors welded shut, it was pretty cool and very loud.

What are you talking about. I just asked what ppl thought. I in no way want to be insulted by my thoughts and it seems as if they are others that think these can be cool also.

That picture was from North of the Border Bash last year, you have seen him around because he is from Acton, his younger brother used to drive a slammed first gen that was a metallic cyber green, you have probably seen the green truck across from charley fitzwhiskeys
