Motivated by the Celica thread I wanted to look for some of the worst car mods ever. The worst has got to be stick on vents/scoops. I found this site in my search for Awful mods.

Truckblog - Dumbest pics....Whatcha got?

Here are some of the highlights from the thread











My biggest peeve has to be these
Hood Scoops for Sport Compact, Trucks, SUV's and PT Cruisers from Auto-trim.com
Parts Bin - Auto Parts and Accessories Catalog - Hood Scoop Universal

If I want to get some wider wheels I found this specifically made for the elise


Parts Bin - Auto Parts and Accessories Catalog - Fender Flares Universal

I also cannot stand stick on "vents" either. Wings are right up there with vents.

What amazes me is that mfg's are making the vents part of their factory design. Why would you incorporate such a played out concept?

Now if you put that thing on a conveyor belt going the oposit direction of the car, and you hit the throttle, and the belt will always adjust to the speed of the ...thing... (see more details in a different thread)
I bet that thing will fly - no matter what physics say...rotfl

The badges and fake vents are bad enough but that hood scoop has to be a joke! The intake for a supercharger isn't directly above the engine. The guy is so proud to talk about his mods though. And he isn't a kid. at least 30 I'd guess.

Ignorance is... ignorance. The guy marches to the beat of a different piano player, for sure. That is hilarious! rotfl

I couldn't even finish watching this video, due to some misplaced sense of embarrassment.

The fake vent/ portholes are my current favorite, especially when they are placed on some supposed "performance" car. You know who started the current fad among manufacturers with these front fender panel mounted vents? That's right, those masters of performance over at Buick back in 2003 as a throwback to the ventiports of the fifties.
