Ridiculous paint and tacky, bolt-on accessories aside, it's a damn straight car. I wouldn't call it a waste of an elky because you can easily take all of the useless crap off of it and end up with a clean car. I'd guarantee that it runs better than my 160K mile POS and it might run better than yours, too. Who gives a damn if it's got big, stupid pictures of bison and random crap painted/bolted/duct-taped to it. The guy who owns it apparently has fun with it (hell, he's actually at a car show and not BS'ing on the internet). Besides, it's just a f-ing car.
Sorry, just playing devil's advocate.
My real opinion: Kill it. Kill it with fire, then give me what's left.
I like it, think it's neat. I like the look of tall vehicles w/big wheels rather than low vehicles with small wheels. (Might be the fact that I live in the woods of Maine where the roads can almost be classified as being paved). However I don't like the busy paintjob and all the bolt ons.
Maybe it's a naked indain crawling on the ground... I just want to get up close to the thing to see if those fender flares are covered in black leather and chrome rivets or not. If I am correct- I shoot the guy. If not, I shoot the guy. But he is having fun and thats all that counts...right??
