                Man I watch you guys but the donk with a southern sound of dunk was started in Miami. The Haitian aka the zoes ppl who couldn't afford cars made these cars popular. Donks at one time came with a bad rep at the time as it was the poor man car to the dope man car later. Miami is the founder of the donk era b4 it trended moved up to the rest of the southern states. GA fell in place later as they had a hard time getting someone custom make their donks that was nice and clean. T.I. didn't have a don't as he did have a 1970 chevelle that someone was working on to sit high With big rims. With that said maybach was Rick Ross thing due to free promotion to help sell more of the luxury and it's lifestyle. GA really just got roller skates from my understanding. 😬✌

                The 1st and most popular donk wasn't even an impala as it was the 1975 caprice vert sitting high with big rims of course with a motor to burn rubber. The Cuban I think made that happened as I know that guy. His name is Alex and his business is STN customs and gold plating you can check him out on face book as he is good person with a love for all cars. His dad who worked on Mercedes and trucks taught him all he knows as a great mechanic. His other son an engineer. Anyways everyone know Alex including reds that customize in pick up trucks with bowtie South.

                                        No no no no. The mpv was hot because it was customizable. They usually had BBS rims. Kendrick Lamar drives a g wagon. Biggie is referencing t the GS 300 in that particular song.
