DOTS: Shockingly Distasteful Mods Edition!

I’ve been busy, Oppo, what with moving into college and preparing for what is sure to be a difficult first semester of college (I haven’t gone easy on myself with my class selection). So I thought I would drop by with some deeply terrible cars I’ve seen.

First up is this confusing Hyundai Sonata. The camo wrap is at least well done but that landau roof is just entirely tasteless and sloppily done.

I’m just confused here. It’s so terrible.

That poor poor Ford. It didn’t deserve to get donked. And you can’t see it very well in this photo but the spare tire in a side mounted case didn’t fit properly due to being waaaaaaaay too large and it just looked stupid.

Sigh, Fintail pointed out this is a 63 Chevy. I really should have known better.

This Ram, ugh, there is so much going on here. I don’t like the glossy pearlescent gold wrap, but I can respect it. Those wheels? They are a crime against humanity.

Chevy Nova? At least it doesn’t require eye bleach. Lots of modern muscle cars in the city but few classic ones. More than you might expect, but still far outnumbered by modern Mustangs, Challengers, and Chargers.

Fintail pointed out that this is a 68-69 Chevelle.

Some sort of private security still using a previous generation ex-police Ford Crown Victoria. Other than a single taxi used in Marieta’s taxi fleet, these older panther platforms have pretty much disappeared from the roads.

I was surprised to see one with intact clearcoat and very little body damage downtown.

Notice the streetcar tracks to the right. Atlanta reinstated their streetcars a few years ago, but ridership is still pretty low.

Hmmm rattle canned black unmarked bus slowly making circles around the block chock full of unmasked people. . .

. . . your guess is as good as mine.

The rare Scion Rolla (as it said on the back), spotted in the wild. I’m very impressed that they even got scion wheels and rebadged the steering wheel.

Ok, this one is actually very well done. License plate “L O W,” absolutely slammed suspension, and BMW’s wonderful unapologetically red paint. And coupe. Everything about this 4 series is so right (except the slushbox).

Except this BMW had a party trick. Later that day I heard a very nice rumbly exhaust and turned to see it drive past at a much higher suspension setting. Yes, I’m pretty sure this is on air suspension.

A nicely restored Chevy Panel Van at the World of Coca Cola in downtown Atlanta. Except it has a twist! This is an Argentinian market van!

Neat story there!

This is an exciting time in my life right now; freshman year of college at my dream school during an unprecedented pandemic. I’ve already met tons of new people and even have the beginnings of new friend groups and classes don’t even start until Monday. I’ve kinda been a little too busy for Oppo recently.

Let’s end this long rambling post with a question; which car would you drive home in? Gotta be that BMW 4 series coupe for me even if it is a slushbox.
