There is a current thread about automotive terms that people hate that gave me the idea to start one about mods you can't stand or find humorous. Mods from the past (like curb feelers) or present (like fake port holes) are fair game. Have fun with it, Here are a few of mine.

1980's
1) double decker wiper blades
2) those blades in crazy colors
3) little spoilers for those wiper blades to "reduce lift" due to the incredible power of cars from that era (usually found on v-6 firebirds)
4)car bras

1990's
1) massive speaker boxes that would shake the whole car and those around you (I have to admit having had one too at the time)
2) head light and tail light covers (guilty again, but at least I never put those stupid wipers on that car)
3) windows tinted so dark you could barely see out (ok, ok, I did that too but they contributed to a funny story of someone trying to break into my car while I was actually in it with my girlfriend:sexe:)
4) neon lights under the car
5) the miata

2000's

1) spinner wheels
2) giant performance killing wheels "dubs". extra unsprung rotating mass...great idea, they should use that in formula 1!
3) almost everything routinely done to a car on the show "pimp my ride"
4) coffee can mufflers on "slammed" rice burners which are usually guilty of having a giant rear wing angled to create lift, but that doesn't matter because the stock 100hp or less engine they have will not create a need for any additional downforce.
5) the prius

2010's
1) lamborghini door on anything but a lamborghini
2) wraps
3) smart for two (dumb for all)

Enjoy!Has anyone drilled holes in their resonators on the RT Hemi .. Im planning on removing them and running straight pipes but while I was doing research i found some people had drilled small holes in their resonators to make the exhaust louder . Wondering what you guys thought.. i have a Corsa Xtreme cat back exhaust system . . i dont think ill ever put the resonators back on so i might try it just out of curiosity .. Let me know what you think ..

well this could be a very interesting thread, so I would like to preface my list by saying to each their own, this is just my view/tastes.

I don't like anything bigger than 20" rims on any car
I don't like those bull [email protected]$ that truck owners hang from there trucks, I've even seen them on a car !
I don't like those spinner rims
I don't like those fart can ricers
I don't like those giant , elaborate, expense stereo systems in a car ( usually ricers) and the garbage that comes out of them. ( this could just be an age thing with me)
I don't like those doubled bladed wipers , and even worse when they came out in wild colors.

There is more if I think about it, these are just off the top of my head.

Oh boy. This thread is going to offend about half the users, then the other thread should set off the other half that regularly use the term "Chally". Before you know, there is only going to be a few of us un-offendables left. There aren't too many of us with thick skin left these days so this is going to get interesting... LOL

By the way, this list is off to good start!

Ridiculous cambers these imports are putting on now.

I'm not really crazy about the excessive stripes everywhere, stickers and just plain busy stuff that ruins the beauty of the car.
