Here's another view of the brakes Hustler wants. You think maybe this is going a little to far? I bet all the fanbois soil themselves over this car. I've finally figured out why they have all those bikini chicks at the nopi type shows. It's so the little teenage wannabe thump thump dorifto slammed dickwads don't look so stupid running around with hard-ons all the time. If there are nearly naked chicks all the meat swords at full mast don't look so gay.

Ruining stuff for fashion is pretty much in fashion. At least with a slammed car you can put a real suspension back in if you want.

I've always liked girls with piercings and tattoos, but clearly you can go way to far.

It comes from Hoodride Nation

Unfortunately by their definition, you can't insult it or say it looks bad, cause they already know that.

A hoodride is an old vintage car that's been lowered and has original faded or worn paint. In the best case, the car will also have rust and patina. Mismatched panels, dents and missing parts enhance the look because they add more character and originality. Driving a hoodride is about making use of a car everyone else would avoid because it's "ugly" or "beyond repair" and being able to love it for what it is. It's enjoying your car because you built it the way you want, and not how everyone else thinks it should look.

This one scares me:

BTW, If any of you are referring to that BMW that's all rusted, there is actually a reasonable story to go along with it. It's not a "wasted car".

While at an event a few months ago, I talked to that guy for awhile. The car used to be a pristine 5-series, but a friend of his was driving it when a semi pulled out in front of him and he smacked the trailer with the a-pillar on the driver's side. Insurance deemed the car totaled but he kept it and decided to just have fun with the paint..or lack thereof. Pretty cool guy in my book.


I'm not worried about this whole "flush/hellaflush" thing though, it'll blow over like every other trend. The terminology is pretty dumb though.
