Yes. And apparently very few people got it and/or thought it was humorous. :P

I totally stanced your mom last night, talk about stretch & poke

IMHO stance can be overused as much as any styling cue, much like spoilers, vinyl, etc.

there are certain combinations that appeal to me visually, some that are utilitarian, and even more that will work in competition.

I am a function over form kind of person, but there is a balance, too much of one and the other must suffer.

examples:
This is a visually pleasing example, its bagged, not a DD, and has definitely been calculated to acheive this look

this while still being visually styled is not out of the range of competition use

Image

This setup is still aggressive for it's intent, but not low. (BTW This car used to be mine, it was beaten offroad almost daily, rallycross, mudholes, minor rock crawling, it now lives in a junkyard as a hauler)

This is more along the lines of overuse,(not actually broken) It may seem beyond reasonable. but has its place, my main issue with the setup (bevond his actual methods of achieving the rear camber), is that is not fluid with any other modifications, (think bozuku)

That is taking the "demon camber" aesthetic just a tad too far... :P

I hate to say it, but I really do like that MK1 rabbit. I think people misunderstand what was done to that car was a temporary sight gag and it didn't go more than 25 MPH like that (before it was impounded, where it still sits).

With a normal setup, and those wheels, I'd really love to have that car.

Furthermore, I think I may be used to the Detroit police not caring at all what your car looks like. :lol: If it operates and has lights, you're cool. Couldn't begin to tell you the things I've seen on the road. :shock:

So the cops impounded that VW because of the camber? Fail.

I would have impounded it too. There's no way in hell that thing is safe to drive on a public street. :P

For me, the cars that are pleasing to the eye are the ones which look... purposeful.

Seeing a sweet looking old car with a few subtle hints of ass kickery, like running modern looking semi slicks, that's what I reckon is cool. 8)
