1. take the air out of the tires:

2. put 200lbs of steel in the trunk and another 300lbs on the rear seat and 100lbs on the passenger seat.

3. Strap a dead Elephant to your roof.

4. get small 12 inch rims and tires.

don't get no cheaper than that.

Are you kidding me!: Do you know what dead elephants go for on the open market?

IMHO that is not a good idea. The springs will be very bouncey. The stock springs on our cars are progressive.
