I saw both of these cars today and I had to tell someone about them. First off I saw a white Ford Aerostar mini-van with a set of rally stripes and a cardboard wing in the rear. This guy even made a small hood scoop out of what looked to be a very thin gauge alluminum attached with several sheet metal screws. And second (this one takes the cake) an early '80's Chevy Citation with a rear wing made out of 2 short pieces of PVC pipe and in between, a piece of wood painted gray. Sometimes I love living in a small town 30+ miles from anything related to a "big city". The laugh factor is very high here. LETS HERE SOME OF YOUR SITEINGS

No, it's just about any POS you've seen around be it car, truck or van with mods nobody in their (right mind) would put on a vehicle.

Take Off Your Oversized Tires A**hole :biggrin: (thats T.O.Y.O.T.A). I've wondered what your Toyota looked like.

Ima have to go get wasted with you sometime. Steve would probably be the funniest guy I have ever met, wasted that is.

Well, the oversized tires are too big for the dying, stock motor. But I have a 302 ready for it..

The worst budget mods, are anything made by APC.

It doesn't get any worse than APC, well maybe that 3A Racing shiz does too.

i cant believe i didnt think of this earlier... i had the best low budget mods ever!! lol on my old 1990 escort, i took some red duct tape and put a racing stripe down the middle, think i put a name tag above the driver side door like a race car, i put the number 6 on the doors in grey duct tape. and i taped plastic forks to the car everywhere. i did this all as a joke lol as i knew i was getting a new car soon. and on the inside i taped random crap all over the place, like i taped some rootbeer to the ceiling. if only i had pics...
