Apparently all it takes to turn a hopper into an off-roader is new tires.
This episode of Roadkill from Motor Trend may just remind you of something from "Top Gear." This time hosts David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan switch things up, with one buying the car and the other picking the route. That's how you get a Monte Carlo lowrider and off-road terrain all in one video! Of course a normal lowrider can't exactly conquer the desert, so the pair have to fit it with off-road tires. Now even with larger tires the Monte Carlo can still hop around.
It's pretty damn funny seeing a lowrider in the desert. If only they would have visited a race track and hit the switches right before a jump. Is that too much to ask for?
