Post What's the dumbest thing you've seen on a car?

How many people have seen something totally retarded on a car. My favorates; A chevette with a home made snowplow, A chevette with a screendoor scroll grille with the initials of the owner, and a pacer 4x4. (sorry to offend some ,but I can't understand cars turned into 4x4's) I've even seen a `71 satellite with a homemade wooden superbird wing and chin spoilers. How `bout you guys/gals?

Next time you watch "Fast and the Furious" check out that phony blower on Vin Deisel's Mopar. Nice car but for a race movie they shoulda found the real thing. Hollywood needs their a$$es kicked for wasting all the vintage sheet metal.

I saw a car one time that had downspouts (guttering) used as exhaust pipes.

A 120lb bikini clad blonde laying on a freshly painted sheetmetal hood that took me 3 hours just to get it smooth enough to paint it.

I don't care if I don't own it, if your stupid enough to jump on a peice of metal as thick as your fake nails no matter how cute and light you think you are, you deserve to take a short flight.
I was having a bad day, I ran out of milk bones and no one cared

stupidest thing ever? a rear spoiler ona fwd car, the spoiler is for downforce which puts more traction to the wheels, for a RWD! what the hell does it do on a fwd, if anything it takes traction because it takes weight off the front

The other day at pic'n'pull I saw a maroon mid 80s firebird. It was all mexified. It had a HUGE rice-like double decker white spoiler on the rear, a chrome rear window wiper that was stuck in the middle of the movement as if to show it off. Then it had some old english style letters on the back window in a crescent shape...who cares what it said i couldn't read it anyway. Gold 100 spoke rims on skinny short white wall tires that stuck out of the wheel well. And the interior? man....im trying not to shudder while im describing this. It had one of those fuzzy dash covers that looked like it could have once been a maroon teddy bear. Bright yellow pedal covers, and a bright yellow steering wheel. Mind you nothing else on the car was yellow. It was just absolutely hideous. I wanted to kick the guys a** just for driving that pile of crap around my town

A chevy cavalier brush painted purple with a plywood spoiler bolted to the back painted flat black. (kinda like the old plymouth superbird. spoilers) Then last summer the cut the top off and drove it that way all season. Don't see it anymore now that it 5 degrees out. Maybe they duct taped the top back on for the winter? KIDS!
