Can you imagine what those wheels on that yellow Accord weigh?

The weight isn't the only fail. I see wheels with such large diameters and all I can think of is the fact that switching to wheels like that effectively changes the car's gearing so it's much taller. That has to really take a toll on the vehicle's acceleration, doesn't it?

Caught this beast the other day. Everything is OVER done.. The interior is absolutely ridiculous. But it is turbo'd.

This guy's last car.. went up in flames. Literally. It was on the front page of the newspaper a few years ago lol. And it was another Eclipse done up a lot like this.

Okay, I'm going to need to see photos of the interior in order to make a judgement on this one. I actually think the outside looks pretty nice.

The interior is all color matched. Leather, I believe. It's done up nicely.. but, imo, it's what would have been considered nice when Fast and the Furious first came out. Now, it's a bit much.
