Gangster White Walls


We used to call these gangster white walls. A throw back to the 1920s and 1930s mobster cars that usually had the wide white wall tires that were in vogue at the time. Nothing to do with today's use of the word "gangsta" among the rap crowd.

You don't see them much any more, but this one was on a custom painted car on which this style fit perfectly.

This is a great shot - I especially love the reflection in the chrome :)

Cool shot dude!

White walls & chrome ... don't see much of that on cars today, unless they're "pimped" up.
