It seems I have ruffled some feathers on the speedhunters site, but I couldn't help it. I have been branded a 'hater' and tossed aside to die a lonely "trash talk lady". If anyone on here knows of me, I'm a pretty easy going fellow. So I would like to bring this to the JNC table to see how all you folks feel about this new trend that speedhunters is glamorizing.
Last month an S2000 with nothing more then wheel spacers and a missing rear bumper took 'the favorite' at the Hellaflush car meet by the speedhunters reporter. I thought this was ridiculous comparing it to some of the incredible looking cars at this meet. Speedhunters is pushing some sort of art house movement. Praising the spirit, mood, and attitude while all they are looking at is a ball of yarn on a dinner plate.
Yesterday a post was made about an AE86 that has been hellishly tin snipped to death in order to achieve a type of battered rebel look. I made argument that I can respect a car that is naturally beaten, but when a cars build focus is to look like trash, that's when I loose respect, especially when it's a breed of classic. If work is slow like it is here, read through the comments and pictures and report back your feelings.
