I could not think of a better place then here for this type of stuff. I have many more of these at home that I will post when I get home. but this one was so funny that I just could not help my self and start the thread now.

these are pics of cars that I find (or friends find for me) in the area. some not so bad, some are just over the top like this first one!

MORE TO COME...



this one was found in So Cal


this one was found in Redlands, Ca


this one was found in Fontana, Ca


this one was found in San Bernardino, Ca


this one was found in Rialto/Fontana, Ca

Jeff Foxworthy suggests that if the car that is parked out in front of your house has flames painted on it, you might be a Redneck!

yeah I said some were worse then others. the blue eclips's wing was a little to big. It seemed bigger in person then it does on the pic.

Okay I think that convertible Olds is a joke.

Two years ago me and my friends all bought winter beaters (under the condition that they were under $500). So after some searching two of us settled on Topaz/Tempos. I bought mine for $200.00, I didn't need to change anything but the battery and the thing started everytime. I only had to get rid of it because I broke the rear beam (or should I say it rusted through). But you should've seen my crew driving around - very ghetto to say the least and to further our ghetto status, every red light was an opportunity to rear end each other or bash into the sides of one another - real life bumper cars.

Here's a pic of my Topaz - took 8 hours to paint the flames and 2 hours to paint on 20 inch rims (some are 21 and 22'')

Ok, I wanna know what you all think of this one.




This is my 1993 honda civic that i traded in to get my 8. This pic was taken before i had the rust fixed at the rear wheel wells. The car had a B16A2 motor swap, in-dash flipout touchscreen DVD and a 15" sub in the trunk. You can call it rice all you want, I loved that car and i still do.

it aint that bad. the wing is not taller then the car, the body kit seems to fit decent, the rust was fixed. not a fan of the CF hood, but thats personal taste.

on the Rice scale it's really not bad at all. not a car I would be ashamed of.

The add-on kits for the civic really sucked especially the rear and the side skirts. The rest was alright

Those big shark-fin spoilers seem to be a new thing - saw two of them on the road in the San Francisco area - both on little tiny GTs - the spoiler seemed bigger than the car and Mom (94) got excited and poked me and said "Is that a ricer?; is that a ricer???"

Hey man, i was working on that. it looked better than the rust did. I never had a chance to change to 4-wheel disc brakes, i wanted to do it. they were red cause i was going to a red and white thing...
