Not really a nice car to begin with, but....


Seen this one in Southie several times.


Sadly no longer unique - low profile tires and big rimz on 6,000 lb SUV's....

In fact, there are a few cars in this thread that I do like. For example, I think this one a lot of people don't get:



Have you never heard of art as social commentary?

Think about it.

Agreed, not my thing at all, and I wouldn't want it. But I respect the idea of making it something so unique that it becomes art. As far as drive-ability, or practicality it has none. But as a show piece, teach each his or her own, and go for it.
I have to admit that I sort of like some of the big wheeled cars and respect the work that goes into them. Though you wouldn't ever catch me in one.

To me this is most likely someone's comment on the trend of putting tall wheels with thin tires on cars. It is the concept carried to it ridiculous and logical conclusion. It screams to me "see how ridiculous this is? this is what your cars look like".

Unfortunately, most can't percieve that. It's more about keeping up and outdoing the Jones'.

Think about it.
As art, it rates up there with the 4" deep lexan dish with a flag in it full of piss. As transportation, it is a rolling menace!
