24: Casual Armory
There is no limit to the shocking things that you’ll find as a mechanic, but this just about takes the cake. A mechanic doing routine oil changes saw a unique place to store firearms in this Ford truck (via Reddit).
Remember that we said driving through a storm can be a bad thing? Well, that is also the case when it comes to your tires. That’s the case in this photo, where a splinter went straight through the tire of a car (via Reddit).
This driver was doing an oil change at home when he realized a screwdriver was missing. He took the car to the shop to see where he might have dropped it in the engine. Turns out he ran over the screwdriver and ruined a tire as a result (via Reddit).
Getting your brakes serviced promptly is part of important vehicle maintenance. This person missed the memo and as you can tell the brake rotors were completely warned. This is not unlike many situations that mechanics, unfortunately, tend to encounter (via Reddit).
The original Ford Explorer has a dedicated fan base, but every once in a while you’ll see one that is just plain over the top. That is the case with this early first-generation model. The SUV got the full treatment, which includes oversized rims and butterfly doors (via Reddit).
The original Porsche Cayenne is the sports SUV that changed the game. With the high-performance engine and beautiful styling, the car is the most well-known SUV in the world. This pink example is going a bit overboard, and we’d hate to see what the rest of the car looks like inside (via Reddit).
At what point does an irresponsible car owner go too far? That is what we observed with this rattle can-inspired Cadillac Escalade. The flat black paint completely ruined the original look and intention of the vehicle (via Reddit).
This owner came into the shop complaining that the car wasn’t driving right. Could it have been the oversized rims that caused the suspension to be ruined? Drivers never cease to amaze with the dumb things they do (via Reddit).
Here we have a driver who complained he can’t feel the air conditioning. Note that the vents on the dashboard have been completely removed. The mechanic quickly pointed out that the dashboard has been heavily modified (via Reddit).
Here we have a three-wheeled monstrosity, we’re not even sure what it’s supposed to be. The driver said he was going for the compact sleeper look, but we’re not sure what this car is sleeping on (via Reddit).
The Dodge Viper is one of the most beautiful sports cars that was ever built. So we’re not sure what the owner in this photo was thinking when they stuck all these exterior mods onto the Viper. The car looks nothing like it should and you almost want to walk up to it and rip everything off of it (via Reddit).
We all know that there are many fans of adult animation, namely the ‘King of the Hill’ franchise. But doing a paint job like the one above is going a bit overboard. Clearly, this was a superfan who had to make a statement, and in the process ruin a great Honda Accord (via Reddit).
We’ve seen some crazy modifications done to the GM F-Body cars in the past, but this just about takes the cake. We have an owner here who decided to turn two Firebird models into a limo. What a complete waste of a great sports car and one of the reasons why not everyone should fabricate (via Reddit).
The first-generation Hyundai Accent was not anything special to look at, so this owner decided to take things into his own hands. Making the body kits out of what looks like cardboard, this Accent is anything but pleasant to look at (via Reddit).
Ever wonder what it would be like to drive a shark? Well, this owner decided to build himself a shark limo. Needless to say, the car is ugly in every way, and there is no way this car will drive on water. Some people shouldn’t be allowed to customize their vehicle because things like this might happen (via Reddit).
Look the Smart Car wasn’t the most appealing compact car for several reasons. The style was downright ugly, and the practicality of the car is almost non-existent nowadays. It was a nice novelty when it lasted, but they just haven’t been the success that the company had hoped. But you have fans like this guy that still get a kick out of customizing the tiny car (via Reddit).
There is no end to what people will do to get attention; take this Hummer H3 for example. We’re not sure what the owner was thinking, but this truck now has the same pair of wheels that you’d find on a horse and buggy. This is definitely not how GM had hoped the Hummer H3 would be riding around in the future (via Reddit).
