Others of us are "adding lightness" by not bothering to put bits back on our cars.

I've thought of a good use for those photos.

I need to go on a diet, looking at those images I'm not sure I could face food.

What one guy posted sums it up

"If anything, this is a worse offence.

Corsas look bad to start with. As do Novas, Astras, Orions - you name it. They aren't exactly perfect designs, are they?

THIS arse... THIS arse has changed a Giugiaro design.

Let that sink in for a minute.

He's taken one of the finest designs EVER - one which lasted nearly a full 30 years without ever looking dated - and he's stuck intakes from a 90s Japanese car, indicators from a 90s European car and painted it radioactive bile with spinach stripes. Then badged up - and spoilered up - to a much more powerful version.

If Barryboys exempted "quick" cars from being fucked over, we'd be badge-snobs. ANY car can be - and has been - screwed-up by a misguided chimp-cock with a malfunctioning taste chip."

Barry 'Boys' gang cracks me up - it's full of poeple who have just scraped enough money together to get out of the 'chav car' scene and so feel it is their new found right to cus everyone else car 'under' theirs due to their new elevated status - badge snobs LOL, what a bunch of hypocrites !

I agree with Jon on this one, as I've seen it in the flesh, so to speak, and what has been done, has been done very well, the guy's obviously spent a lot of time & money on doing it, but..............

It's still god awful to look at, plus the fact that it's been done to an 88 NA !!!!!!

The V8 badge is a bit of a joke, the air scoops! what was he thinking?

For the money he spent on the wheels alone he could have saved that & got himself a very decent turbo Esprit

Poor setras did not get a warm welcome to the site at all, not worth posting on such an ill mannerd site I think, in fact probably best not to go there in the first place

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Think it looks ok, apart from the air scoops and the V8 badge, unless he has fitted a V8? and if he has perhaps the scoops do, do something. lets face it it is an exotic car, as said you get Lambos in bright colours. It's not a chavvy Nova!

PS (I've never liked the look of 350 Spoiler)

The other couple on that site are just sad though!

Have also seen the yellow/green Esprit in the fibre glass. Not my cup of tea but a very professional job. It certainly stands out....

The Ferrari badged red car is a joke however....I am sorely tempted to buy a 308 and badge it as an Esprit....

Ok Ok i've been rumbled!!! I'm a Barry.......Yeah right!!!!

I stumbled accross the site a few years ago and when ever I'm down I go on the site to cheer myself up.

Karl you have nothing to worry about and whilst your car is definately different I like it but these guys could do with a lesson from you.

The first one looks like a joke. Total waste of what was a nice Turbo. (And they're wrong, it's not an N/A as it has rectangular spots in the front splitter, Turbo rear valance, the black paneled between the rear lights is louvered and you can just make out the Turbo steering wheel. The rear glass between the rear buttresses has been removed).

Karl like i said you have done a good job.....one question though I have just had a really good look at your car and cannot seem to see any indicators on the side nor at the front. Do you have any indicators on your cars front end?

The owners of the first two cars should have their driving licence burnt in front of them and then banned from owning a car for life. What they have done is nothing short of cruelty and we need an automotive version of the RSPCA to sort em out. Just think, out of millions of sperm those two were the strongest swimmers :thumbup:

wow...I actually like this one.

I always want to add those "MR2 scope" (but not exactly using the MR2 scope)

the NSX Type R also has this kind of scope on top of the engine bay.

and I like the way it changes to the V8 spoiler, bumpers, side skirt...

that's one heck of a job.

wondering what's been done to the engine??
