Default This almost made me cry...

Today I was driving home from a painting job, and I pull out behind a dark green Mustang GT Coupe...looked like it was once really nice...but it was BY FAR the most riced-out 'stang I have ever seen. It had like an 8-inch lift kit, massively oversized tires/rims, and I kid you not, gold-colored rims and spinners. The tires were obviously very poorly mounted, as you could see an incredible amount of wobble, even at like 20mph, on all 4 wheels. (Looked like my 9 year old bro had put the tires on the rims while sleep walking.) Several of the body panels had been replaced with randomly colored replacements, some were scratched up, some had nothing but primer. It was covered in stickers, etc, and had a big pair of fart cans on the exhaust tips.

I mean, talk about raping a car!

I saw a guy with a brand new ford GT when the new design first came out (2005 model) and he put some nasty looking lexani's on it ... jeez ... made me dry retch.


At the same time, people will probably hate me for taking a jeep and putting rims on it, but they're OEM jeep rims, so it's not thaaaaat bad.

Oh well, I don't mind a souped up Jeep or truck so much as long as its still tasteful - you can get away with a lot more than with a Mustang. (Or even worse, a riced-out Mazda RX-series - they look so hideous with spinners and a lift kit!)

We have a local guy that drives a ford fiesta with a 3 foot tall bi-plane spoiler on the roof, some small ~12'' rims with tiny low profile tires, and a multi colored paint job meeting diagonally in the middle. I laugh pretty hard every time I see him.

I saw the guy again no more than 5 minutes after I posted that, and it looks like he's ditched the tiny tires but now has a large black stick on hood scoop on his hood.

I love the genius' with the aftermarket sticky hood scoops... And then don't take the time to actually cut a hole in the hood.

Friggin morons.
