One has to wonder...can the damage even be undone?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...S%3A1123#v4-40

And...are those chartreuse color seat covers?

And...judging from the "No Surrender" sticker on the front, I'm guessing this is the 'Karate Kid: Cobra Kai' limited edition 90?

ROFL...

Pretty easy to remove the lettering and stickers...otherwise it's a fine truck.

But "Rage Rover" and "No Surrender"...my goodness...I'm glad someone did it just because it's so incredibly funny.

See, there's a difference between doing something based on humor vs doing something based on poor taste. This, while funny, stems from the latter I can assure you.

I will give credit if there is evidence of an air freshener and/or a taxi meter inside. windows are too dark to tell.

John, I bet those extended fender flares are just your style.

There used to be a show on hd theater about this Indian who worked in London making cars ridiculous. He took a BMW and made it look like a bat mobile or some crap. Cool show. I wouldn't want any of it but like this truck it is amazing they could do it.

Makes me wonder if there are any indians on the board. Tanner Boyle might not like it.

Haha, that e36 they did on Chop Shop or whatever it was called? Yeah that was great. All I remember is how wide they made that thing, and the ridiculous spacers they put in there.
