We Buy a Donk Project. Goal: 1000HP! Part 1 of 69

Late nights and lockdowns mean we're doubling up on our time searching for our dream projects, especially king Carcaine himself: Brian Scotto. With a history deep rooted in donk culture (i.e. being the editor in chief of Donk, Box, and Bubble magazine for years), Scotto has always wanted to build one. So after finding the 'perfect' (his words, not ours) '71 Caprice, it was only a matter of time before he brought it to the Donut Garage as our newest project car. The goal? 1000hp. Good paint. And of course, giant rims.
Thanks to eBay motors for supporting the donk project!

    • ​@Hoonigan This project rubs me the wrong way. You're caricaturizing Black culture for views and profit. You've made it clear that this part of our culture is a big joke to you and it's at our expense. Just because Scotto use to be involved with Donk magazine doesn't make it ok. It just means he's an original culture vulture. He said it himself that the donk cover of Rides sold better than ever so they made a whole magazine so they could profit off of it. I love Hoonigan but you all didn't think hard enough about this. Also, Ken should rethink those HHIC plates. You wouldn't be comfortable saying HNIC out loud which is where you got it from.

  • There's got to be a way to make the 1000 horsies invisable until the gas pedal is breathed on or the hood is opened. And you gotta be able to slam that turd to da ground on da rubber frame feet when you pull up. I'm talking tubs the size of Cleavland with zero effect on factory body lines. Plain spinners would make it look as if its moving without rotating the tire. Dats straight up ghostly. If you guy are doing it, it's gotta be frickin cosmic homies. I love the full chrome front end. Whatever can't wait to see this come together. Congratulations. 🤠

  • I know it's not the real thing without a brand new paint job and all the chrome. But I think it would be cooler with the current paint and interior with the insane motor. As far as the wheels find some old ones that are chipped up and rusty but they can still be the huge ones.
