The "nice cars people have destroyed" thread has become the "shitty cars people made shittier" thread.

Sad.

So I gotta ask what you drive?

I drive a WRX and the vast majority of Mustang owners would likely consider them "Shitty cars." And vice-versa.

Plies just built this 1968 Pontiac Grand Prix. The car is actually painted in chrome and this is not a chrome vinyl wrap. The paint job is said to have cost $47,000. The wheels on the car are 26″ DUB Azzmackas in an all chrome finish.
Plies is a rapper, I think.

I think MiteyF is a closet Prius owner... or maybe he drives an old VW bug with a Prius sticker.

He built it for attention and it sure does the trick.
I managed a convenience store back in the late 80s and had a regular customer with a lifted Chevy flatbed. He would climb up the LR tire tread, swing his legs up onto the flatbed, walk along the bed, and swing himself into the cab--in business casual dress. I never saw him on rainy days, though.

As much as I like George Harrison's music I have my reservations about his taste in car customising.

They made a RAM-based Ramcharger for the Mexican market, but it was only 2WD and was never sold in the US. Chrysler never made a full-sized 4 door SUV.



I loved the original Ramchargers and full-size 2-door SUV's in general.

The Chrysler Aspen is a full-size sport utility vehicle from Chrysler. Launched for the 2007 model year, the Aspen was based on the Dodge Durango SUV. Together with the Durango, it was the first production hybrid vehicle from the company. It was discontinued in late 2008. The Aspen name was previously used by Dodge (on a twin of the Plymouth Volaré) from 1976 to 1980.
Yeah. It wasn't terribly popular. But they're still out there.

I forgot about the Aspen. I suspect most other people did as well.

I guess the Jeep Commander might also fit the bill.
