    This is all about those things that are just Terribly wonderful...or wonderfully terrible, depending on how you see it.
    Let's keep it clean though because it's just about fun and laughs.

    I saw this one today. The dude was so cool that he stopped his car in the middle of the street so I could take a picture of it.

    A Mercury Grand Marquis, not a Cadillac, with a set of long horns mounted to it!

    I think I am in live with this car!

    The horns are pointed the wrong way. Guy obviously never saw any cattle.

    Unfortunately there is no photographic evidence but when I was at college I taped a set of bull horns to my now wife’s austin maxi, and chased people round the car park in it.

    For those of you that don’t know how uncool a car that is,

    And even worse than that, it was 2007.

    For any of you 'King of Queens' fans out there, this may look a little familiar (Present Tense episode):

    My daughter made this and added my and my wife's likeness to it and gave it to us for Christmas, where it now hangs prominently in our hallway.

    One of my biggest joys is proudly showing it off and saying my talented daughter painted it and watching the looks of people's faces that are not familiar with the show try to feign niceness. Terribly wonderful indeed :D

    i've always used craptastic to mean "bloody awful" - never a positive thing... like "oh that pelican has craptastic blood values"

    I bet your wife wants you to buy it and drive her all around in it.

    Nope! She told me to mount a set on this because it would "1 up" him.

    I also saw this drive past my office a while back.

    I played with Hot Wheels as a kid but as I grew older my fascination apparently didn't stick around as much as this guy's.

    Afraid I wouldn't have gotten the reference either, but after looking up the original painting, that's hilarious!

    Haven't seen that show in years but it looks like Carrie got a little beefy. Could be an homage to the Seinfeld man hands episode.

    Particularly funny as the logo is on one of the unhottest cars ever.

    They’re also way too far back on the hood, epic fail on all counts!

    This one had an exhaust that sounded like a hollow popcorn fart and that wing was so wobbly that he couldn't hardly drive in a single lane...but it sure is cool!

    Then again maybe the fact that he was at the liquor store to fill up again was why he couldn't maintain a single lane. :eek:

    Spotted this freak of nature about 3 years ago, at the local auto parts store:)
    Notice the Cummins diesel badging on the fenders.
