On Craigslist this morning....

I feel like the red buckets and louvers take away from this car:
http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/cto/4773030338.html

I have a serious inquiry....WHY????
http://louisville.craigslist.org/cto/4743809119.html

If the rims were like...17's then this might be cool
http://lexington.craigslist.org/cto/4774795091.html

and finally, the reallllllll kicker. . . .

brace yourself. . . . .

Makes me laugh, and cry at the same time. I still to this day, do not understand why people put big rims on their cars.

The first 3 wouldn't take much to de-goof-a-fy back to stock, the last one is beyond hope IMO.

that is some BS with fashion .You really dont need rims bigger than 16-17 on these cars.More rubber = better traction especially these cars dont have traction control and all that new electronic stuffs on new cars plus if you look at NASCAR ,Formula 1 and other competition you dont see that type of wheels ...you see wheels with lots of rubber.This show how BS fashion is.

The blue Camaro needs a sign on the side that reads: "Westward Ho!". That would complete the Conestoga wagon look.

Re: On Craigslist this morning....

On a thread In history originality, I mentioned I liked a Resto Mod offered by Mecum at Kissimmee. I thought it was tasteful compared to others I've seen. Thank you for proving I was right. There is Sooo much wrong with the cars above. Below is the one I saw.

Either way I still like an original better.

Re: On Craigslist this morning....

That's hilarious I especially love the 86' base model steering wheel instead of the factory air bag wheel.But I guess that's what happens when your rolling around in your "whip" sitting on 26's.: And of coarse it's extra special being a "camero" with vomit green/teal interior

I like the guys selling mentality, it's on 26s enough said. You see it you buy. I guess the engine and everything else does not matter when your rolling on dubs lol

Too bad there's not a photo of the rear end. I'll bet there is a "Mary Kay" script on there. If not, it sure could be a Mary Kay car. And I'm not being mean but perhaps trailer trash Barbie was a previous owner.

The color is called Perplex Pink. He claims he has 3500 in the paint job. He also said it comes with a His and Her shift ****.
Nice guess with Mary Kay but this guy seems to have come up with this all on his own.
Sooo Proud!

Yeah, every car Foose does is the same...big wheels and a 2 tone paint job. After the first 20 cars he did the same thing to, it just doesn't work for me.

Keeping your car close to original, is most desirable to me. Of course some enigne mods for more HP are always welcome

Re: On Craigslist this morning....

I see these type of cars all the time and always wonder why they sunk that much money into them? Not to mention the fact that most of the time the person doing the work has no taste what so ever.

As for Foose taking off the windshield wipers, most of those cars are in LA where it hardly ever rains and the car is never a daily driver. My car on the other hand will be not be a daily driver either, but WILL be driven all over the place when the weather permits.

Re: On Craigslist this morning....

You'd think no one would make that type of wheels but clearly there is a market for that crap since they make them.Its funny how you can buy bs like that new but you can't find new Firebird 15 and 16 inch stock wheels.

these cars are too cheap if idiots like that can aford them or idiots make too much money somehow.
