    Redonculous to the max - widebody D

    I would never have thought this would be a good idea, but oddly it works and I actually like it.
    A bit much, but why half @ss it.

    Looks more like the Bosozoku style than a widebody. I have no idea how the front tires turn without ripping off the flares, but any publicity is good I guess.

    Ezra had this on his instagram. I think it looks hideous because the mods are so poorly and obviously done. Just looks like aluminum pieces bolted to the car.

    I don't usually subscribe to the "all parts must be replaced with stainless," idea; however the fact that all these body add-on's are aluminum and not stainless really irks me (at least the front and rear). It seems to cheapen the effort to me. You question whether it's aluminum just looking at it, but what sold it for me was the welding around the holes in the front bumper. Pretty clearly aluminum welds. Plus, forming stainless like this takes a lot more skill and effort than aluminum does.

    Im all about tasteful mods, thi sis just terrible. Every man to his own, and its your car do what you want. If you wanted to go for a bozoku style .....sure. But the real question is....is why to a delorean? Ooof it was not executed well.

    Well... it's different but I almost hate it. It does not fit the aesthetics of the DeLorean and they chopped up a perfectly good DeLorean for their own personal gain though it is their car.

    Since there is now one less DeLorean on the road, our cars just went up in value a little haha
