Repost. But, since we're on 4x4 autos, here's a beauty from Southern Ohio;
exactly what I was thinking.
as Humvees, and loud pipes will not make your 3/16" ignition wrench a 1/2" drive breaker bar, A Hello Kitty Camaro will not make an industrial sized african-american woman, anything other than that.
From the WTF thread:
I love that aftermarket wheels have gotten big enough that cars can actually look like matchbox cars now.
That car, while ridiculous, is kinda cool in it's own way, IMO
That stuff is all over a few neighborhoods in Oakland. If you see one, DO NOT be on the outside of it in a corner. They have a turning radius worse than a Ducati.
In general, they can't accelerate worth a damn, and have completely mangled suspension. Following one through a set of bumps at speed is rather funny.
Used to be that the purpose of larger wheels was to fit larger brakes. I never see larger brakes on the cars with aftermarket 20"+ wheels on them. With the rotating mass increased and concentrated at the circumference, the brake load goes way up, with no extra brake power to help stop.
Brakes!?! We don't need no steenkeeng brakes!
That said, I once owned a 50 1/2 Willys 2wd PU with a chevy SS power train. Unfortunately it still had a single reservoir drum brake set and original steering gear. GLH but steers like an aircraft carrier.
That's actually some pretty funny shit right there.
I love the supercharger sans belt. Is the trailer license plate a heat shield, or part of the exhaust?
That is a fun modern interpurtation of a rat rod.
Flipped exhaust manifolds for the stack (which looks like it still has a cat and remains emissions legal?)
Impressivly created from junk.
Me and the wife had stopped at wal-mart to buy an ink cartridge for the printer, and on our way out I seen it. Made her circle back and take pics, because I knew of a few threads like this on various forums. Once I got up to it, there was so much WTF I couldn't take it all in. But here is some that stood out.
The belt was actually on the supercharger, the backside of the belt barely touches it, my guess is that it's being used as an idler?
That alternator tensioning ... system is a deepwell impact socket and some threaded bits (bolt, allthread, nuts?).
I think the Arkansas permanent trailer plate is a heat shield for what I think is heater hoses?
Did you notice the steering U-joint? There is also a bit of roller chain there by the carb. At first I thought it was his linkage, but I'm not sure. Maybe it's to hold them wires up or something? The whole rear end of it looked like an erector set gone wrong. Those are ratchet straps going from that tank? to the frame.
Makes an opel guy like me cry.
I dont think so. The cat is probably in the pile beside the air filter.
It has nothing to do with making a car more functional, in any way. It's all about the look. Just like white boys and their foolishly lifted 4x4s
By the look of those wheels, the owner is very content with what he`s got hanging between his legs.
