Low rider guys are much like old hot rod guys deep down they just love an old clean Chevy, ford etc....
What about those stupid car eyelashes?
^^^ Glad you clued me in on the car eye lashes. Now if I can just find a pair of bushy ones and an appropriate mustache my Seville can have a new life as a Groucho Marx-mobile! Next the Grey Wolf will be asking for a cigar.
There's a white Siena van around here with lashes..... Special kind of stupid.
Eyelashes are fine on Beetles. Just keep proclaiming you're a chick car...
Not sure if this counts as a "fad", but this is good a place as any to post these.
People that stick too much after market crap on their cars
A few years ago, I saw this ridiculous Geo Metro outside a gas station. Mismatched hubcaps from different makes, badging from random cars, ....and fender skirts. The driver was an older man, maybe in his 60's, apparently a former marine from what he was wearing, and some of the stickers on the cars..
A year or so later, same gas station, same spot, same driver. He's "upgraded". Still a metro, the even sadder convertible. Needless to say, he's stepped it up a few notches...
See how many different "accessories" you can count.
Damn those Geo Metros are neat! The guy must be very proud of his creation. And to think he's got two of them! Bet he also designed some of those "Mac Mansions" that have brought pseudo Victorian kitsch back into vogue.
I saw it on a little Ford Focus with Washington plats, after the owner tried to berate me for my parking.
Google Image Search leads me to believe that the #1 Brand of Moustaches for Cars is called "Carstache".
Are you a Prius-Driving Hipster from San Francisco? A Sebring owner from Washington? Do you have "Ironic" fashion or an Apple logo tattoo? Do you enjoy taking a typewriter to Starbucks, but totally not for attention or anything? Then have we ever got the perfect product for you!
In hindsight, I have a friend with a large steel grille on his Brougham designed to resemble some fangs. However, his Brougham suffers from the same problem mine does in that it is nearly impossible to find a photograph of it without a naked woman, so I won't post it. In fact, I know two other Hearses with mouths.
It's a great technology that has many good uses. That doesn't mean they are the best choice for any type of lighting.
I'm not only talking to the aftermarket. Many new cars are coming out with LEDs in the taillights and other places that are obviously only there because they are trendy, not because they are the best design.
You can also add bad HID conversions to this...
Why do people put those fake plastic Buick fender port holes on their cars? I don't think they know what they are. I am sure they are a cheap Autozone product.
