go and get the March issue of Lowrider. it is full of Fleetwoods. there is a 90 Fleet and a couple big bodies. i think there are four or five in the magazine as well as a couple of other beauties. like lowriders or not, these things are nice and make for some good in flight reading material. i havent seen this many Caddies in Lowrider magazine save for the Cadillac issue (which i wish i had, anyone wanna give me theirs by chance? or ill buy it nothing over 5 bucks though).

Ya its a good issue, I like Chinamans black and grey one, and Slowbobs is real nice to, just dont like the interior much.

i like how it shows his hoppin. thats bad ass cause you rarely see that in the magazine on a featured ride. they are some pretty nice Caddies. i am aspiring to their level. hopefully should be done by summer of 06.

Question.... Where is most of the prep work for hopping focused? Fleetwoods are many things, but lightweight is definitely not one of them. Is it primarily on lightening the car or stregenthening the suspension? I notice GM G-bodies are also popular, another comparitively heavy car. I'm assuming the popularity is due to the full frame designs being stronger, and the more balanced RWD layout?

We have a fleetwood in our club thats a hopper, 4 pumps 16 batts, we weight it once it was around 9,000 pounds, a fully loaded gbody are I am guessing at the most 7,000.
