What do you all think of this? Is this the worst thing ever?

I've just stumbled across this advert on a Dutch *bay type site that I frequent.

A front spoiler for a W123

What do you all think of this?

I know it is down to personal taste (and I don't wish to upset anyone) but surely this is the worst thing ever?

Duckbill on a w123?




sounds ugly to begin with.



Now, on something like an 83 VW rabbit, you could get away with it...

While it does look ugly with that one photo angle- it might not look as bad on this car.

Got one on a euro 123 gas car I picked up for parts. It really appeared to reduce ground clearance but was mounted well. In storage for quite awhile. Car also had rear trunk spoiler.

WHORP! (sound of losing lunch)

The phrase "tits on a boar hog" comes to mind.

Sorr-ree.

That was one of my old man's favorite expressions:

That's about as useless as tits on a boar hog.

It might look a little better if it was not on a beige car with hubcaps.

That is a good one...

Better then my old favourites

1) You are as useful as a chocolate teapot / chocolate fire guard

2) That's as much use as a hand brake on a canoe
