    Question Automotive poseurdom at its finest

    Inspired by our new friend Rando and his mangled Ciera, I wish to bring you more examples of terrible things done to cars.

    Exhibit A: this Celica




    Its a stock engined FWD celica with a hood scoop suited to a hotrod hooked up to a dryer hose. Also the car has been given huge rear drag tires, a wheelie bar and a nos bottle, but its still a FWD shitbox.

    Exhibit B: this Mustang


    I think if I look at it anymore I will have an aneurysm.

    Exhibit C: this Cavalier


    I don't even know.

    That Cavalier is hot... I dont like the BMW fenders, or the body kit, but i love the paint, doors, and what I can see of the interior.

    The Celica, who cares, its jap crap, and thats what you are supposed to screw up..

    The Cav would be 100% better without the played-out & PITA Lambo doors. Suicide doors on the other hand........

    That Mustang hurts my brain. I almost bought a 65 fastback back in the 90's & kick myself for not doing it. It even had the nice chrome wheels & the rally gauges & foglamps......

    Im sort of in awe with that celica...I mean..alot of money went into the few parts that are on it...and...idk what to say I guess...All that money could have made that car ACTUALLY fast. lol

    The slicks mounted to a solid axle..thats just hilarious. The chute, the cage, the slicks and the body work, all that craps exspensive. This dude should be steralized.

    Although, I do not think that Rando's Ciera has been mangled yet, only if his lift mod goes horribly wrong. I don't consider his car a fail at all, its not bad just not my cup of tea is all. This ciera is horrible though:

    see those are sort of like the wheels I wanted in the first place, only wayyy smaller..pretty much stock size with a lower profile tire. But after having a pot hole blow out TWO of my tires at once on my other set of rims Im done with lower profile tires..plus my stockies ride nicer.

    hey, i like that cavi too. The bumpers may be a little much, and its dropped way to much, and get rid of the lambo doors. I like just about everything else about it. The body kit wouldnt be that bad if the front bumper werent so gaudy. I love the wheels, and the paint.
