I was just going to post a nice compliment about your saab, but ever since the Great Random Picture Thread Text Embargo of 2013 I am always worried about getting banned anytime I post a comment in any BS thread without a pic.

Plus upon progressing through the rest of the thread and noticing people would rather argue about whats ugly and not post anything, I figured Id drop a truth bomb on yall.

3rd Gens are for Hillbillies.


But can look SO good.


Also I found a site called f***yahwagons, thought some of yall might approve




corolla and xxrs. Bad apart, pretty good together


Because of all the Volvo love

Youre going to complain about Saab but no one is going to say anything about the BMW 2002?

I must have some "eccentric" taste, as I don't find many of these "ugly".

I usually HATE SN95's but this one is working for me



Always loved these big-bodied GM's



Currently looking for one of these for a Coyote 5.0-swap project

/\ Props for good taste. I normally get neg props when I post a pic of something LT1 powered.

I think a Crown Vic on Fr500s or Bullits looks pretty good with a small drop and a little better in a dark color


Aztek anyone? Not pretty but an improvement....maybe

I think this aveo looks better than when it started.

Anyone know what this is?

I thought the proportions where too wierd to make one look good, but dropped and leveled out with some diff wheels I think it looks pretty good.



I like all the old boxy **** you guys find, I cant seem to find anything that looks good from the 80s besides volvos

Almost everyone hates the C4.

The base 130z is pretty ugly.. a mix between not being treated right and lack of bodywork (rear bumper,side skirts, front lower bumper)... once cleaned up are very sexy.

So what we've decided on is that just about anything can look good with decent wheels and a more aesthetically pleasing ride height. Also it helps to remove some of the plastic "trim".

Not exactly. Most of those replace the stock bodywork with something else.

What the heck is a 130z?

And the basic shape and contour of that car is very attractive. It's ugly because of the bits tacked on to it, and even then it's really just ugly cuz it's old/safety bumper crap and stuff. At its base it's not even kindof an ugly car. ???

The basic shape is indeed attractive. And right thats what i mean the pieces that come tacked on to it stock as in the base model.. come it comes when you buy it. Pic bellow is stock. Then the pic after is cleaned up.

I guess another name for it is "FairladyZ" Body is very similar to the s30 240z and the 280z



I guess in my eyes i see it as the classic mustang of japan.

I know what a Z is, and what a Fairlady is... I'm confused about the 130 part. All I've known is 240z, 280, etc. I searched for a 130z on google and I just kept seeing what I've always known as a 240z or fairladyz.

I guess its a different model part, theres the S30, the 130z the 240z and the 280z. All use similar model different generations.

Engrish? No entiendo. Model part? All use similar model different generations? Those sentences don't make sense to me.
