I guess this modification never caught the eye of any designer.

I remember back in the 60's and early 70's, many people thought it was cool to lift the back end of a car to fit big wheels and tires underneath, never cared for it, fender flares where another way to do it but, OMG, talk about taking it to an extreme. I wonder if he choose a wheel with a huge off set or stuck a rear diff out of a truck in that Corvette?

Throughout the history of hotrodding there have been people who took every good thing to an extreme that turned that good idea into an abortion. A nicely done small flare looks great! A little lift or rake looks great! Seems there's always some of these guys who want this "Hey look at my car!" look, and don't care how goofy, or non-functional the car is when they're done, as long as it gets lots of attention. They don't even realize whatever attention they get was for the wrong reason.

I'm sure there's some photoshopping there too, but sadly some of them really exist!

Actually if you look at the wheels they are in the exact same position in each photo which proves only one thing. Apparently just out of the picture frame there is a crane lifting car bodies on top of those wheels for the next picture. The guy in the stripped shirt is either glued to the ground or the crane operator is really fast as is the wheel painter guy.

Makes perfect sense to me.

Thanks for that link, Brian.

The pair of red and yellow ricers above show to be "Probably" p-shopped, "Pixels only match software editors", but oddly the first one I posted (post #948, donk w/huge wheels and all the signage) says "Can't tell", "There is nothing in the file metadata that indicates this file has been edited. Careful editors can fix the data and erase their tracks though, so this means you'll have to look at the photo and decide if it looks correct and not edited."

Still, the software has potential.

I can appreciate the cause he's trying to help....this may be a case where a donation of what he put into the car may have resulted in helping the charity more than actually selling the car and donating the money.

I'm sure his heart is in the right place.

I take that back Brian, if you don't factor in inflation and time, it may go for more than what the built it for in the 60's. It's up over a $1,000 so far.

Take it on the chin?

There has been no mean spirted posts as far as I can tell, why be concerned?. If someone gets bashed as some type of looser for his abstract creative ways or directly insulted then that post should be dumped and the poster warned. The thread is all in fun and if someone gets upset soooo what? call the moral police to bring them a tissue? I think not.

Anyone that dares to build/drive/own/show off these builds is up for riticule and/or judgement of some sort, just as long as we are not mean about it no problem IMHO, my intention when I started it was not to offend I assure you of that, but I cant hold everyones hand either.

As far as the "clown" special I hope he gets 20K for it.
