I had a woman come by the shop a while ago with a really nice 70 Impala. It had the "donk" wheels and tires on it and they cut the friggin fenders all to hell to clear them! She wanted to fix it but it was shocked at the amount. Yep, it's a lot cheaper to take a sawzall to the fender than it is to weld stuff back on.

Oh c'mon now - welding steel ONTO a car doesn't cost all that much at all!

Its only expen$ive if you are fussy about wanting it to look original again with shaped openings and paint & trim & stuff like that ......

There are SOOOO many different aftermarket wheels being made now it isn't funny. And they make them for like one run, make a thousand and then never again! We have cars at the shop all the time with a wheel damaged that they bought a year ago and they are simply not available anymore.

I used to work at Maaco so I saw a lot of donkmobiles. These guys will spend $5k on rims but will complain about the price of a maaco paint job. It's rare to see one of these piles that was actually done up with any amount of decent quality. There's a clown car right down the block from me and the guy plays ball at the court I play at. I told him he needs a clown outfit to match his car. He didn't like that comment.

If someone is going to destroy a car by "donking it" (is that a verb?) why can't they stick to cars that are ugly and useless in the first place? Maybe if they donked a PT (Part-time?) Cruiser, a K-car, a Smart Car or a soccer-mom mini-van we might not find it so objectionable.

But I suspect that some of them do it just BECAUSE we find find it objectionable - they are as contrarian as we are for not driving politically correct micro cars

I think they are called "Donks" because you look like a donkey driving one.
