If you read a car blog long enough, you’ll eventually get the inevitable post about which trends the author cannot stand. An older post on Speedhunters points out how our hobby is somewhat unique in how polarizing it can be. There are few areas of interest where something that is simply not your taste ends up being something that inspires vitriol.
The photo I chose for this article should in no way be taken to represent my own opinion, but it’s certainly a car that a lot of folks would hate, either for the stretched tires, the unnecessary camber, the intentional rust, etc, etc.
Personally, I feel like I’ve reached a point where I can happily look at a car which is modified in a way that I don’t care for and not get too upset. Why waste my time worrying about how someone is spending their own money and fixing up their own car. If that car makes them happy, then that’s great with me.
What about you, dear reader? What trend, past or present gets you angry enough to rant about when you see it?
