The 'I don't get it' car fashion thread

Two simple rules guys.

1. Post here something relating to cars (mods, style, fashion, vinyl, neon lights, fast and furious stuff, dubs ect.) that you just DO NOT understand why people do it to their cars.

2. Try to keep the personal attacks to a minimum if you see another member do something to their car YOU don't get. A bit of friendly roasting is fine, but if it turns ugly I'll start moderating posts in a hurry.

I know cars are a sensitive subject for most, and I'm hoping this stays fun.

I'll go first

I've got a list, but my big Irk is dubs. Down here in the south, I see big, gawdy, chrome, 22+ inch wheels on EVERYTHING from corollas (that one had the C removed and an H added, so it was a HoRolla) to minivans.

STOP IT!!!!

1. Dont understand the whole "Stance" Craze that is sadly still around.
People SLAM their cars and put ridiculous Neg. Camber...and THEN complain about busting their CV Boots or Chassis Damage or things breaking etc.
( I understand about the whole VIP thing too..I am referring to Sport Compacts that do it)

2. is Neg. Rear Camber & Staggered Wheels on FWD cars...Explain that!

I like stanced cars... I just don't like it when people do it all wrong or destroy their car while doing so (in a damaging sense).
Or when they're just stupid and ride along on the bumpstops and wonder why they can't go any lower and wonder why their car feels like trash when driving around.

But I don't see many complain about damaging stuff, most of them are actually really nice folk.

I had wider wheels in the rear with camber in the rear by comparison to the front.
It has zero to do with performance, it's about looks.. and having a 2" lip up front vs a 1" lip in the rear looks even more retarded. FWD or not it doesn't matter.

I also hate people that hate FWDs.

I just hate the people that say they do a lot and they don't do anything aka liars.

Oh see I love fake vents... not really... the idea of them or them in general, but I like to see how creative people get with them.

I particularly love the backwards ones on wings and other really odd places that totally are not fenders lol

Tough to see.. Best I got lol. I have mixed feelings about it, but everyone that sees it loves it so I kept it. I feel like a hypocrite when I see a 92 civic with one because it looks so cheap.

And I have seen some crazy uses of the vents, both good and bad. My buddy used some circular ones as cupholder inserts once.. Looked kinda cool actually. But honestly.. 99.9% of the time, they look like rice/junk.
