    Spot Them Beater Cars

    Here's a thread I figured might take off, might not. Post photos of your own car that looks, well, homely. Or, photos of beater cars you've found on the street. Hey, they aren't junk piles, they just have character.




    The above and below happen to be the same car in different stages of disrepair.

        There's a proper thread for this car:

          Nice idea. I see a plentiful crop of rolling scrap heaps every day around here, especially beater student cars. I've just got to remember to take my crappy camera to class with me!

                I was thinking more toward cars that have lots of "character" and are still being driven around. CrazyRussian540 and lip have the idea.

                      I wonder what they would have done to my friend who had just ricocheted his Impreza off of three trees at 50mph and tried to drive it home. I've got all of the photos between what I showed above to prove it, but that's a story for a better day.

                            ^ That is actually freaking awesome! Nice post-apocalyptic vibe going on there.

                                Yeah, that was latex house paint on that thing. Looked to be brushed, not rolled on as well.

                                  Seen last summer in France. Still had number plates and was parked in a public parking space.

                                    I've always wondered how far you can take a CRX in terms of bits rusting off, while still driving it.

                                      If it has a manual transmission, I would be proud to drive that car.

                                        I knew a guy who did that to his truck. Claimed that when he sanded and buffed it, you'd never know it was house paint. Of course, he and his brother were members of the Brotherhood of the White Sheet, so his judgement was poor to say the least.
