Default (New) Seen on the road thread

Been a few years since a "seen on the road" thread. Post your photos, self taken, of course... from the saablime to the ridiculous.

Here's what I call "The Eyelash Car". I'm not sure I understand why it needed eyelashes.

A Diesel exhaust. On a VW TDI. Note how it keeps the exhaust off the rear of the car and how stylish it is.

Shot today, hopefully for a restoration or a hot-rod-ation !

It's hard taking pictures with a phone while driving. Just 1 level easier than texting.

He needs much more negative camber for that setup. It's just not up to standards.

He's probably awaiting cusom fender flares or widebody work. There's nothing wrong with it. It's very common in high-end builds, drift and stance world. Expect to see the same Maserati with some even fatter tires, negative camber and looking more or less like this:

Didn't have time to take a picture, but I saw an older Dodge Charger driving around with a plethora of $19.99 Amazon Especiale LED strip wrapped around the front bumper. Wasn't secured very well and some of it was hanging off. Who knows, maybe they have trouble seeing at night?

I'm surprised the cops let them drive around with that monkey sticker over their license plate!

A former student of mine saw this outside a hotel in Boston. She emailed it to me with the subject line "yellow car"... she had no idea what it was.
