Isn't it illegal to have those handle things on an automobile steering wheel?

Also, it'd be awesome if Big Daddy's airbag deployed and took some of his teeth out.

Actually the last pic is from a different car, not the big daddy one (we'll call him Fourez)

Right, but if you look at the 8-***** and skills on that Max, you can see they're those little steering ball thingies like they use on golfcarts to make it easier to spin the wheel. I was always under the impression they were illegal on cars.

"Yeah" wasn't talking about the last one, I think the ones with skull would knock the driver the Eff out contrast to the last one which is more of a solid unit. The skulls are separately attached and stick out for a whooping on his face.

I'd envision seeing the driver in an accident on the odd page of a newspaper with skull marks all over his face

Yep you are correct, they are illegal on cars... I believe only semi's are able to use those....

but then again, clear corners are illegal, freaking license plate covers are illegal too, not to mention tint.... not stopping some of us!

I still don't know that clear corners are illegal, at least in Ohio. I know this has been debated ad naseum, but the laws I have looked up state that you are only required to have side markers on vehicles that are 21' or longer (which the RX8 is not). I don't know exactly what the laws are regarding additional side markers and could find no documentation on the subject.

Anyways, those cars are both silly.

YOU are absolutely right! This is for illinois.... but I never actually looked it up, I just heard that it was illegal.....

All other motor vehicles shall exhibit at least 2 lighted head lamps, with at least one on each side of the front of the vehicle, which satisfy United States Department of Transportation requirements, showing white lights, including that emitted by high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, or lights of a yellow or amber tint, during the period from sunset to sunrise, at times when rain, snow, fog, or other atmospheric conditions require the use of windshield wipers, and at any other times when, due to insufficient light or unfavorable atmospheric conditions, persons and vehicles on the highway are not clearly discernible at a distance of 1000 feet. Parking lamps may be used in addition to but not in lieu of such head lamps. Every motor vehicle, trailer, or semi‑trailer shall also exhibit at least 2 lighted lamps, commonly known as tail lamps, which shall be mounted on the left rear and right rear of the vehicle so as to throw a red light visible for at least 500 feet in the reverse direction, except that a truck tractor or road tractor manufactured before January 1, 1968 and all motorcycles need be equipped with only one such tail lamp. (Nothing said about the cornering lights)

Every motor vehicle of the second division, the length of which together with any trailer or trailers in tow thereof, is more than 25 feet or the width of which is more than 80 inches exclusive of mirrors, bumpers and other required safety devices, while being operated on the highways of this State during the period from sunset to sunrise, shall display on the front of the vehicle 2 yellow or amber lights, one on each upper front corner of the vehicle, which shall be plainly visible at a distance of at least 500 feet;
