Random Phone Pics

I was going through the pictures I’d copied off my phone a while back and noticed a couple that amused me. I have a habit of taking pictures of awful looking cars, or Chavmobiles as they’re lovingly called.

OnceItWasACorsa AaarrghVan

The first one was a Vauxhall (Opel) Corsa where as the second one I’m not sure. It looks like a converted American van to me. Its an odd looking beast for thats for sure. I’ve seen it a few times around town.

It reminded me of an episode of Fifth Gear where one chap had bought a £10k Saxo and then spent close to £20k upgrading it. Ouch! I know its great to have a hobby and everything, but thats a large wad of cash to blow. For £30k you could get a Subaru Impreza or an Audi A6 or a BMW 5 Series or an Audi TT or a Jaguar S-Type or a Toyota Landcruiser… erm yeah. Well anyway, if I was going to spend that amount on a car, I wouldn’t do what he did!

Despite being into design and art and stuff, car tuning is one of those things that I just cannot comprehend. =)
Then again I pretty much hates 90% of cars, so I guess that’s normal, hehe.

I’m not against car tuning as such, it’s the body kits that get me. The horrible cheapness of them. It cracks me up because the company designing the car will have spent hundreds and thousands of hours and pounds deciding what looks good and what works… and then said owner thinks that tacking on batwings and plastic bits makes it look better! Sigh :)
