Readers Rides - April 2009

Almost A Feature

Day Photography
Apr 1, 2009

It's that monthly time again for us to dedicate a few pages to our loyal readers. For the month of April, we had some unusual readers submit rides. If you want to see your car here and possibly win some free parts, send some high-resolution photos of your ride to readersrides@superstreetonline.com. Make sure the JPEGs are 1500x1000 dpi. Do not try to use your camera phone. We don't care how much you like your iPhone, it will suck and will not look good at all - trust us! For snail mail users, send your letters to Super Street, c/o Readers Rides, 6420 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048. Don't forget to tell us your full name, where you live, highlights of your mods, and your quote.
