Perfect example of a "dislike" button being needed.

Mook 01-08-2019 11:37 AM

Ya, so I could use it on your post.

Black wheels. LS swaps are here to stay!

At least lighted air stem caps and windshield washer nozzles never took hold.

Aftermarket colored lights inside and underneath a vehicle

Black wheels. White letter tires on low-profile new tires.

Asking $20k for a 70,000-mile, clapped-out G8 GT.

A buddy reciently installed Under-Glo lights under a guy's 350Z with an ugly aftermarket bumpers. That 350Z owner is not right in the head

Pick up trucks that at best are used to haul groceries and individual kid’s soccer / football gear on weekends

Country Music Bros w/ their jacked up trucks who at most experience the rough terrain of a Walmart parking lot.

Vaping, tire stickers, caliper covers, and plasti-dip.

Also referring to window tint, tire stickers, wheels, and exhaust as a "build".

cmntmxr57 01-08-2019 12:15 PM

Tinted windows listed as "tints"

Nothing to me is more absurd that the cars that are "stanced"

Sprayin 01-08-2019 12:18 PM

Engine swaps in general. Especially from the crowd that doesn't have the money, skill, or time to do one but it's all they talk about.

Someone probably broke a ball joint and decided to post it on Instagram. Then it became cool.

Oh, can't forget the crooked license plate mounts...

Facebook replacing a proper Car Forum.

SMRTSS1 01-08-2019 12:31 PM

The all black murdered out look! Especially since I have a black truck and everyone keeps asking me if Iím going to do it. ďAbsolutely NOT!!!Ē If anything Iíll go comp grey or anthracite over the chrome to somewhat match the wheels.

26ís or bigger wheels on ANYTHING OTHER THAN A TRAIN.

Stance cars. Itís so fucking stupid!
