Whoa! Is that a real donk or a photochop?

I just threw up in my mouth a little.

I've seen one with wheels either the same size or bigger around here.....they were mounted on an old Buick (80's)...looked horrifying. Best part was when the guy had to swerve for something and almost flipped the car! He must have been a good 2.5 feet off the ground at least....

Ha! Reminds me of my days at Sears working in the auto center.

Inevitably someone who drives a rolling abortion like the previous photos will look you in the eye and ask with a straight face--"why do my tires wear so funny?"

It's the real thing. When I first saw this abortion, I lamented that I didn't have my camera. Later in the day I had to pass this way again, so I took the camera - just in case the pimp-mobile was still there. And it was!

I see these jacked-up pimpmachines pretty often...most recently an 85 El Camino.

See, this fellow solved his tire fender clearance problem!

You gotta admire the energy and devotion to these misguided automotive sculptures. They are clearly an artistic expression. Driving them can not possibly be any fun dynamically.

Those ones with the hydraulic suspensions woudl be good for rocking the baby to sleep!

This poncho owner may belong to the flood rescue squad! He can simply tether a boat on the back to use where the water gets too deep.

Different strokes for different folks. I look at a Picaso and think "that guy needs to leard how to paint". Others see a work of art.

While I am not a fan of the F car on top, the jacked up wagon is kind of neat in it's own way. It was done to pick ups first, now a few have done it to a car. What's the difference? If the owner likes it, more power to him/her.
