Normally i'm for personal rights, but this builder needs that privelege taken away!
I wish i didnt waste my time looking at it.
Although I fear being beat up for saying this but I kind of dig it. Its got some crazy 60's over the top build going and I think it could end up neat. If I had a free rusted out car and and wanted to practice my welding skills I would totally have some fun like this.
scary fugly , and a waste of vintage tin
poor old caddy i wish i could unsee it but now my eyes are scared for life .....thanks
atleast the bumper can be saved
Worst thing I've seen done to a '57 Caddy since that godawful PayLess Shoes commercial where they crush a red Coupe deVille.
Yeah but did you guys see the flames??
If it had some fenders on the front....roadster style windshield...it wouldn't look as ugly.
#5 is the only decent pic of it.
Why did I look? Now I know what would be like to see my wifes great aunt naked. YUK
Did he not know what the car was suppose to look like? All kidding aside, style as well as art is in the eye of the one that created it. I don't find this "modification" or "alteration" appealing and it appears that others don't as well. I for one, like to see modifications that adjust the orginal body lines but also stay true to the original style or makers intent. This Caddahack does neither
The world would have been better off if the poor thing was parted out to save other Cadillacs. I don't like the word hate very much, but I think I hate the rat rod piece of shit it has become.
You are correct, it could have been a great car to test welding skills on. Unfortuneletly that thing is held together with bailing wire and bubble gum, lol
WOW!!! What can I say?
Chuck it would take a little more then bailing wire and bubble gum just to keep those monster bumpers and grille on that thing!LOL
funny stuff silhouettes 57, the girl puking is hilariuos.
You've been on this board since '08 and you couldn't guess how it would be received? The only thing that car is missing is some flames... And I don't mean a paint job, I mean set it on fire. It could only be an improvement.
I'd rather be driving the rusted-out 4 door Caddy he started with.
some people get bothered by what others think, this post was put up knowing the response it would get on THIS site. humorous and funny
I've always been told if you can't say anything nice don't say angthing at all.
I like teh motor.
Some people shouldn't be allowed to have tools.
It's cool, if you pound dudes...........
LOL, ok. Gotcha. As long as you didn't post it thinking it was going to be received with open arms.
some people sure know how to fuck up a car!!!!!
Anyone one can fuck one up, I think that one was fucked down or sideways, I takes a real man to do that.
Don't drink and fabricate! Now I know what a turd looks like when it gets pushed back in.
This is one I did you guys might like it a lil more?... Tape was on the moldings I was doing a little buffing before it went home
