What is this.

On the way home from work a few days ago I saw this and just had to stop and take a few pictures.
It seemed to be an rs/ss convertible 4spd car from what I could see. Sounded very nice with open headers but the wheels and tires just need to go.

It's ruined.

Just a donked car. Probably wasn't a numbers-matching real muscle car.
If it was...then it's ruined. But if they got the money, whatever...

if you talk to the purists who build that 'style' of car ( if you can call it that ).. a Donk applies only to a Caprice...

everything that makes them clear the big wheels/ tires is pretty much bolt on. so it is reversible

I gagged a bit on that. Maybe someone will buy it and sell those rims to a pimp.

Not just mental scars, there are metal scars there too, they have cut the bottom corners of all the wheel openings to clear those "donkey" wheels. What a shame...

It looks like one of those toy cars with the over exaggerated features (blower etc).. what a waste of time and money...

FWIW Matt: interesting fact .. didn't realize the caprice was the only eligible car to be crowned as a "Donk" .. I would bet they mean the Caprice Classic with the V8 not the lame donkey with the V6 haha
