I always thought a nice big spoiler would look good and the back of the wagon. You know push the rear to the ground at high speeds for better traction while I whiz past all those Kia Rios.

I saw a 240D with one of those wings and el cheapo aluminum rims from the 80's on the street outside of a dorm at George Washington University this summer....damn waste of what appeared to be an otherwise clean car in decent shape...wish I had a camera...to make an example of what NOT to do to a car....

get a little Troll doll head and put on there....or a shrunken head...

Would it be cool if I put a 3inch to 1inch muffler on my car?

Oh no wait I got it backwards

Great. Some nice silver duct tape would give it some extra strength for windy days or interstate travel. And it would blend right in like OEM. Plus it will secure it from thieves in the parking lot. Lazy bums are no match for a good duct tape job. I use it on my hood ornament.

I drive fast enough that a jack would cause my antenna to bend over and play dead.

It already has a slight curve to it and its only a year old. Guess I should put it into the auto mode more often

No I think whoever owned this one was serious...but it was parked with noone around.....I can';t even guess gender much less race as far as who would do something so tasteless....you have to drill holes in the trunk to mount that wing, so I think it was beyond a joke....

Who is that guy?

Is that mr. biodiesel or something? I guess he doesn't mind hanging out back there because the smell is not so bad any more!

Are you making your own biodiesel or buying it premade?

The List.........

1: Ground effects (that don't "a"ffect anything)
2: Useless wing
3: Oversize fart can (muffler) sticking out the back
4: Sacreligious paint colors/schemes (ie... school bus yellow)
5: More than one bumper sticker/decal (personally those go on my toolbox, don't like them on the car)
6: Wheels with wire spokes or spinners
7: Billet fuel inlet covers
8: Tires/wheels that extend past the wells
9: Jacking/lowering more than 1"

Someone want to add #10?

10. ANY bumper stickers or decals (especially those "fish" things).
11. Non-stock tinted widows.
12. Chrome fender arch covers (usually used to hide rust/dings that the owner is too cheap to fix).
13. Any wheels that are noticeably larger than stock.
14. ANY non-stock chrome wheels.
15. Satellite radio receivers on any car too old to have a factory satellite radio.
16. Those little rubber aerials in place of the correct retractable unit.
17. Broken radio aerials that stay up when the car is parked.
18. Any headlights that do not at least appear to be US or euro OEM.
19. Clear fog lights or models that should have yellow (and the opposite).
20. Basically anything that doesn't look like it came from the factory.

That's just the exterior stuff, I'm not even going to list the defacing you can't see (after-market air cleaners, weird VWO conversions, etc.)
