Question Of The Day: Is A Fullsize Transformer Cadillac One Step Too Far?

Question Of The Day: Is A Fullsize Transformer Cadillac One Step Too Far?

I’ve watched this video a couple of times now trying to figure out what, exactly, it is that I’m looking at. And other than the obvious answer, a very modified Cadillac Eldorado, I’m not sure what to say, and neither is The Brougham Society on Facebook. The car is set up as a lowrider of some sort, it has a Continental-style hump on the trunk replete with continental wheel (or, at least the tire-cutter wheel appliqué) and it has a lot of party tricks when it comes to the body. What I know of lowrider culture can fit onto a postage stamp, so if anyone out there can tell me if this is normal or not, I would be very appreciative, because it’s not every day that I get to see an Eldorado unhinge it’s front bumper like a snake preparing to feast.

    What exactly is the point of this four-wheeled abortion from the backside of Satan?

    It was written in the Revelations2 – the weird bits – that ” There shall cometh the wheels of the Beast and they shall be hideous to the eye. And they shall devour the unrighteous and scatter their remains throughout the world!”

    Or maybe I’m just stark raving mad!

    That has to be from Houston or around that area. It’s kind of a trend around there to have those crazy wheels complete with spares on the back, and panels opening in unthinkable ways. I think these guys are trying to give Bosozoku cars a run for their money.

    The term used for this style of cars is ‘slabs’. Go to Google images and type in ‘slabs cars’ and prepare to lose an hour or two just being dumbfounded by these things.

          Sure did. This one is my favorite:

          ” Ho clean but i think he over done that shit..swanga in ya grill doe? Nigga had nine swangas on that ho! Boyz beggin fa attention! Chill out mayn”

          Apparently, the kneecappers are called swangas.

            Holly shit! I didn’t think it was possible but these guys make Donks look reasonable. I have the sudden urge to purchase every 94-96 Fleetwood, hell every 94-96 B Body to save them. I can’t believe the gov’t was upset about people rollin’ coal, but they allow mass eye rape by these monstrosities!

    OK…I’m not sure we get crack in Australia but if this is what it does to a person I’m glad we don’t. . This is atrociously bad, beaten only by the clip that Burner303 gave us……bleaugh.

    Maybe the front fenders are a type of semaphore for turn signaling???? Or maybe he needed a snow plow and grater for a gravel driveway???? All I know is when I show my buddies this they won’t pick on my Matador fixation for at least 24-48 hours.

    Am I the only one who thought “Now throw ya hands in the air and wave ’em like you just don’t care” when the fenders flipped up?

    Funny AS – actually I LMAO, and sprayed my coffee all over the computer screen.

    And the point of having a car like this IS ? I don’t get it nor do I won’t to.

    The driver looks pretty pleased with himself.

    I bet he spends a lot of time driving by himself.

      One thing I can say for sure is it is different. But hell why not. I’d probably build something stupid like this just to piss people off. I mean, it’s kinda like a rat rod with a bunch of crap hanging off of it. Horse shoes, mack hood ornaments, bullets, rust, scrap metal and 20s. It’s like the evil twin to each other.

  7. What?

    I think the guy driving it did a hell of a job not to rip the bumpers off. I love the way the hood pieces slam down. Going to bust up some plastic there. And I thought Barris built some wack sh!t. But here’s another example of doing with the leftovers of society. If it weren’t for the rest of us giving up on these cars they wouldn’t be popular with the rest. I’ve seen other vids of these slabs and must say while they are not my taste atleast they don’t have Corn Pops or Trix on the hood.
