We Want Your Bagged Rides!

Static versus air suspension: this has and will always be a controversial topic in the car community, and it’s sparked more than a few debates in our comments sections over the years. ‘Bags are for groceries’, ‘air is cheating’, ‘it sacrifices functionality’ – we’ve heard it all before. But with some of the high quality air suspension systems available on today’s market, there’s no denying that riding on air can give you best of both worlds if you’re a lover of looks and performance…


With companies such as Air Lift Performance leading the way, air suspension is only becoming more popular as people discover how useful and genuinely functional it can be – and we’re all for it! So, at the end of this month we’ll be holding an air-bagged extravaganza; a theme dedicated to aired cars only. And we want some of your cars to feature in it.


We’re looking for interesting air-sprung projects to feature in a special ‘Bags Only’ readers’ rides story, so if this sounds like something you could contribute to, we want to hear from you. Perhaps you’ve built a bagged hot rod or lowrider, or something classic with a twist, like this old school Toyota Crown on 20-inch wheels.


Or perhaps you’ve put something on air that maybe shouldn’t be, like a car built to drift.


Maybe you’ve gone all-out with your interior and created something a bit fancy, or perhaps you’ve gone down the do-it-yourself route and pieced together your own custom air installation. Whether it’s something old school, VIP-style, race or show orientated, we want to see it!

If you want to take part in this theme, here’s what to do:

  • E-mail your submissions to iamthespeedhunter@speedhunters.com with the exact subject line of  ‘The Bagged Theme’.
  • For this theme, we want you to select 3-6 high resolution images to send to us. Please include a range of different shots if possible. They don’t have to be professional pictures, although higher quality images will be more likely considered for publication.
  • Tell us your name, location and some information about your build or project.
  • Attach the images directly to the email, ensuring your images are a minimum of 1920PX on the longest side. Ideally they should be RESIZED to 1920 x 1280PX.
  • Make sure the image is free of any distracting watermarks. Don’t worry, we will make sure you are properly credited.
  • If you haven’t taken the images yourself, we’ll need to know the name of the photographer (please make sure you have their permission to use the images) to credit them accordingly.
  • Closing date for submissions is July 17th 2015.

I never got the "bags are for groceries" is it a dig at air bags or is about the use ability of bags compared to static dropping.


GregFentonHNHS It's a dig at bags, it means that bags are best used for groceries and coilovers are superior. There is a comeback phrase 'static is for laundry' so you can probably get it now.


No, we don't.


KootenayDub GregFentonHNHS "'static is for laundry'" doesn't sound as bad. Sounds pretty cool.


My car is in the process of being built. I wish this came like 6 months later!


@DriveCircles KootenayDub GregFentonHNHS  Static is for CB radios


Hey Jagdroach, it doesn't matter if your car isn't finished yet. 'In-progress' is cool too!


@DriveCircles I support this post.


JakWhite KootenayDub GregFentonHNHS Bags belong under the eyes of old women.


My brother has just bagged his RS4 (B7), it's clean and largely standard but I doubt it would be considered interesting compared to some of the amazing projects that feature here.




I'll be honest, if this is going to result in 90% of cars where they, as you said, "maybe shouldn't be", then it's going to get boring fast. Just sayin'. Show me some cool VW's, Hondas, some old Benz's, and some grocery getters and this reader will be a happy guy. Show me some bagged, scraping STI instead of an impreza, and then tell me the owner is trying to piss people off for the fuck of it, and i'll roll my eyes. 

I've said this before, speedhunters urges me to be more accepting of things. So, with that said, let's try to make these posts positive. Make them highlight what situations make air suspension THE best way to go. Make everyone happy.


Hopefully we get some mini trucks submitted. Love to see more of them on SH.
