    I'm in a car with a hood ornament and whitewalls right now. And 99.5% of the time, I hate both...

    It's saved to my phone as your ringtone. Kevin's is "One Piece At A Time" by JC.

    For sure if they use too much mascara.

    I want to get one of those stick figure families for my truck but instead they're all running from Jason Vorhees with a machette.


    Also don't know if anybody has mentioned what I call "Meixcan wheels" You know they have a really deep lip but the offset is so screwed up they sit way outside the fender. And I don't mean to stereotype, but its almost always some latino guy who's running these types of wheels.

    Personal preferences aside, that thing is dangerous for the other drivers and the pedestrians! When you drive besides that truck, you have no idea that the wheels are actually 10 inches closer to you than the truck itself.... Cops should stop those trucks.

    That was big on 70s and 80s RWD GM cars and isuzu/ toyota/ nissan hardbody minitrucks back in the 90s here in the midwest (which means I'm guessing it was big in the 80s on the coast because we're so far behind style wise).
    My dad called it the "fake lowrider look" because it looked like it would be a lowrider with the frame scraping the ground and the goofy spoke rims with bulging out rubberband tires (like the tire was 3 inches too narrow but they overfilled it so it looked like a balloon and stuck out past the rim), but very very rarely did they actually have hydros on them.

    The hanging of dice or other cheesy stuff from rearview mirror mounts. Although I must say that I am especially fond of the animated hula dancers that used to be found on car rear window shelves, especially if they were lighted at night! The shocking pink plastic bomb shaped antenna toppers always lent a lot class to the 1950's cars they adorned, too!

    Not sure about any of that, but I have a Mercedes hood ornament hanging from the driver's side sun visor on the Cadillac. That should be a fad. In fact, in my inner circle, it kind of was.
