Show us your Stupid Looking Cars

Postby Lumpy [OP] » November 19th 2015, 11:57pm

Got a pic of a stupid looking car/truck/van you saw somewhere? Post it... :rockon:

And ok, somebody's going to say "Hey, I think that car looks cool". Ok, you're allowed to think a stupid looking car looks cool. Doesn't mean you're stupid.

This one was in the "Pro Parking" area at Home Depot today.

Looks like he could also qualify for the "You Park Like an Asshole" thread over in GarageJournal.

Note the trailer hitch. I'm sure those rubberband tires are ideal for towing a heavy boat or trailer.

Maybe they just got it back from the builder and drove it across country. Yeah, they prolly have plans to use this 3500 Ram good and hard.

Bonus points if you can capture your likeness in the image of said stupid looking car.

That's it. I've seen all there is to see on the internet. What could possibly be left? Camarossan indeed!

I hate low profile tires and huge rims. I want a small rim and tons of tire! All these new 4x4 trucks with 22" rims and rubber band tires. Yuk.

I agree, My van has 15 x 8 inch rims with 245/60R15 on the back and 235/60R15 on the front. If I could get wider on the back without rubbing I would. Low profile tires are stupid they wear super fast, ride harsh do not help with traction or cornering and cost more? makes zero sense to me.

What on earth could have been "the job" ? Big Kid - you are very generous.
Really... this so wrong on so many counts - I can hardly form them to write about it - geez - WHY? would someone chose THIS combo.

My goodness, what did the front end look like - to still have the side and back end all rusted out / banged up.
OMG - The tires/wheels match ( on this side ). Even that looks sooo outaplace on this thing.

Look like movable Fog lights for Hdlites - lol , the Mixed Hood Idea and the License plate...

Why the weird angle of the clip - needed a reason for the Fogs. " we got no tilt on the lites, so just tilt the whole thing ... huh? "

And the Camaro itself was THAT bad to cause this? Whew. I'm worn out. Like he said - THIS IS IT.

I would estimate that 90% of all wagon wheel tires I see are pretty much bald. They must have blew their wad on getting wheels and tires and can't afford replacements.

I think(?) that's a piece of pallet with plumbing fixtures made into a wing.

Needs bigger exhaust.

Not sure what's mounted on the roof. Air conditioner? Tupperware waste basket offroad light housing?

Red,

That 2nd one, w/ "The Guitars" on it ... could very well belong to one of my relatives, a cousin.
Decorated his entire Condo with an Aerosmith motif - over the top in every way you can imagine.
Carried an Album w/ 20 or so Big Photos of the place everywhere he went for decades.

He would have driven that car(?). Even tho' it has nothing to do w/ that fine band.
