We've all seen them, so post your "What were the owners thinking" images. I saw these at the Eastpoint Gratiot Cruise last weekend.

1. Look at the wheels! And I used to think the ones on the "A-Team" van were ridiculous!

2. He calls it "Carputer!" Just think about all the money he saves on paint & wax?

Too much, any way you measure it.

Sure it is. If you only choose to do wheelies and troll for silicone babes at the local drag strip.

i fail to understand how lowriders with hydralics falls into this category. Those guys spend big money on setting those cars up. Sure that buick kinda looks dumpy but that impala looks really nice. While not really something I'm into you have to respect the work put in.

I have to agree. Being a Lowrider my self this is what i do and what a majority of my photos are all about. Just like the Muscle cars, the Hot Rodders, and the Antique collecters Lowriders have earned their right in the world.

Sorry I have to cutoff......I'm actually leaving a Car Show Picnic and getting ready to board a bus, so i hope to view other comments and add a little more to my own.

I wouldn't put them here, as a group. But tiny wheels on a big car both look wrong, & aren't all that safe, either. What if you have to duck some kid on a bike sometime?

I wouldn't want to follow cars like the second one in the first post on the highway. I'd be too concerned some circuit board would fly off and whack my car.

Please excuse the poor image quality, it was all I could do to grab the camera before the light changed.
