    Anyone that would do that to a car needs his ass removed.

    What they've done to that xke is unforgiveable. What will they do next, hydraulics and a flame paint job on a db-4?

    The Mini Minnie is kinda wacky and cute. I'd get a kick out of seeing it drive by.

    Kind of like the old Bugs that the exterminator drove.

    Can someone explain this to me.

    I have one of these running around my town with the huge matchbox car wheels and a big SUNKIST logo on the side.

    Is it a drug thing or are these guys just really into frosted flakes and sunkist? :huh

    I sent this pic to a friend of mine whose softball nickname is Frosted Flakes (I can't even remember why now) and he said he'd seen one like it in the 'hood in North Minneapolis, so they must be relatively common.

    They are pretty common. It's just people celebrating that which they grew up liking/loving.

    If done to a 2013 Mercedes, now in 2012, I'd question it, but I love the expression and art of it on the vehicles they choose to do them on.

    I've seen some neat ones here in south Florida, but for the life of me... can't remember what they were.

    Too, they very well may stand out on purpose, and be easy to memorize, as drug sales points (drug dealers), but meh, I'm not against non-family members using drugs anyway. I don't know if that's how they're all used though - but I think you've got to agree that that type of painted 'art' is much more pleasing to the eye than graffiti - which was the old style of 'art' such cultures used to use.

    There is a late 80's Caprice donk driving around the city painted red/white/blue. It has "Hope and change" painted on the doors and a giant picture of Obama on the hood.:rofl I wish I had a pic.:cry

    They're called "Donks" or "Hi-Risers" in the East and SE and "Risers" in the West. Scraper bikes are catching on as well and there's a kid in the neighborhood riding one made from a doubled-up frame.
    I thought the graphics were usually a NASCAR team but now take on consumer product graphics, almost as a nickname. That one seems professionally done and they aren't just old school anymore!
