    Default When bad things happen to defenseless cars...

    We all know how annoying those fake, stick-on fender vents are. I'm talking about these things:

    Super cheap and super annoying, even when used properly on the front fender/quarter panel as "engine vents". Well, twice this past week I saw some that were used improperly. I saw a Chrysler 300 sedan with one of the single, large "vents" stuck on the rear quarter panel and then just today I saw a Ford Expedition with the three little squares (just like the pic above) under his rear-most window! Seriously, what are these people thinking when they buy those and put them on??? I wish I had some pictures.

    Anyways, this thread is for any tails of misfortune you have seen on cars. This includes horrible paint jobs, poor repairs, giant "bookshelf" wings, trucks lifted way too high, you name it. Pics always help. Post away!!

    I once saw a neon with a huge wing on the back with a body kit. I wanted to say to the guy, no matter what you do to it, it will always be a neon. But, I too hate those fake air vents. I also hate the fake chrome wipers and the chrome door trim that you can get. It all looks so ugly

    I agree those look so stupid! I swear I remember seeing a person put a set on the stock "cowl" on a 03-07 silverado.
