It's missing a bucket of clams on the roof.

Former "Pimp My Car" victim?

don't know what "bucket of clams on the roof" is a reference to, but i like the comment even more than the car itself.

i'm working hard to find exactly the angle of full-circle semi-ironic appreciation required by this one.

i don't even photograph classic minis any more, as they're a little too "celebrated" for opc status in my opinion, but i really do want to own one.

i hate this familiar car's ugly, stupid, poorly executed custom touches, but maybe that's exactly what i need to appreciate.

but at least it's all reversible. maybe better than chopping in fender flares and lowering the stance...

What do you think of the completely batter dipped/bed linered look?

Tony Piff said...

I hate it.

I know, it's got this ill 'Old pier' thing going on. Maybe the owners a surfer with a sense of humour but it's borderlining 'chowder shack'. Beyond the bucket one might add, say, a wooden oar?
