    That poor 300...they're not bad, really, if you like that kind of car. A friend of our family has one! I feel bad somebody did THAT to it o_O

    ......on a side note, the car to the right of that Sportage in that pic was a Jag wagon....pretty epic!!! Probably terribly unreliable, but epic nonetheless!

    Thanks! Whoever owns it actually lives right in town - I've seen it around before. This was the first time I had a chance to snap a pic of it's terribleness though! lol

    Wow, that is certainly....a...thing....

    Would've preferred that poor El Camino stock, not "redneckified" :(

    Should've at least put a snorkel on it to match the exhaust.

    At least a snorkel could look OK considering the Delica's stock "Beefed-up" looks...that stupid exhaust just looks silly...

    Sadly yes, that is a Pontiac Montana minivan with terribly crooked go-faster "MONTANA" windshield decal and sticker-bombed grill...............

    .............no words...... 0_o

    Spotted when getting back into Humdrum after lunch at the local McD's at work last week.

    Spotted the other day

    Not an 'obnoxious' OR a 'ricer' car, but the quality of the vinyl wrapping on this van (note the shoddily covered over logos...you can't take the time to cut AROUND them or remove them and place the logos over the vinyl???) is pretty terrible. Sad thing is, it's the company/dealership customer shuttle van for a local, professional Hyundai/Toyota/Subaru dealership, so you'd think they'd do a more decent job considering they drive their customers around in it...

    The local Kia dealer had a shuttle van that was 2 vans welded together .. or so I was told. So nothing would surprise me when it comes to shuttle vans.

    At least that 300/rolls looks alright compared to the one I saw a few weeks ago.... The 'bodywork' on the right front was damaged and had a chunk missing as well.

    Yup.......no. Kudos on them for having a body kit that loos surprisingly similar to the real deal, but on a 300? The 300's an OK car, but....just no, lol.

    My guess is this:

    I know their other Toyota Sienna shuttle van got t-boned and totaled by another car in Bridgewater awhile back and they were in a hurry to set up a new one for use....still, cutting around the logos would've taken a few minutes for a professional vinyl wrapper, max...
