VERY TACKY Stay away from the looks of the car pictured ^^^above^^^ and you're all set.

Yeah, that one in the pic is certainly a collection of tackiness many don't match. LOL, and it's even a 4 door to boot.

Im not sure why this is the case, but there are so many god damn cars with a yellow and red theme.... That is sofaking ugly.

Ok I know this will probably touch some feelings but my top tacky list is as follows:
-calling your CHEVROLET Cavalier JDM, It's as far from JDM as possible, even with Toyota emblems, if you want an import go buy one.
-chrome anything on a compact car, exception: Maybe in the engine bay.
-automatic transmissions on a tuner car, if it a grocery getter so be it but shop trying to race everyone.
-custom Spider-Man glued-in fabric
-faux carbon fiber
-fake fender vents
-wheels bigger than 18"
-gauges on a stock car
-huge wings
-permanently mismatched body parts (color)
-stripped interiors on a stock to mildly modded street car
-altezza's
-tribal decals
-excessive use of aux lighting (neon, led, etc.)
-fart cans
& last but not least...
-6000w in subwoofers with stock speakers for mids & highs.



It beats a Honda!

I thought so too. I figured he did it in PS as a joke.
Oh well, as long as he likes it is all that really matters.

no dude, I was wondering if YOU were kidding. I know JuicyJ was kidding since it was his own car he was ragging on. chalk up another fail for lack of tone on the internet

I disagree with the JDM call. if you own a true Toyota Cavalier (which Blue is the only one that can say that), then you you'd be right to call it JDM since it was made for and sold to the Japanese Domestic Market. ppl like ClippedZ24 with RHD swaps arent true JDM, so you're statement would hold water there... I agree with the rest of your checklist, however

With 6000 watts you wouldnt hear your highs more or less care if theyre stock.

On the subs thing I guess it would be more of a pet peeve than something that's tacky. I jus hate it wen people have much power to their lows you cant hear the words @ all. It's only a "system" if you have a capable spectrum of sounds highs, mids & lows. & 6000w is an exaggeration. Lol

Under hood looks nice. The blower would be tacky if it was made of plastic and glued on the hood.

mine never came with a tach =( its basically stock besides lowered with intake and exhaust...and yes it is manual.....yes its crooked but the way i sit in my car it's perfect, i woulda put it like the pillar but i drive with my left arm up on the wheel so that would block it

I wouldve picked up a cluster with a tac before I slapped that gigantic bastard to my dash. I believe the cluster swap is plug and play.



Re: Tackiest things to do to your car?

95 that gauge actually has a function seeing that your car didn't come with a tach but most people with gauges on a completely stock car have things like boost gauges without boost or a/f ratio gauges on narrowband O2 sensors. In these cases its strictly for show because the car would never see boost & really who cares about a/f ratio when your stock PCM is commanding a less than ideal ratio for performance & the sensor can't read into that range anyway.

styles and fads come and go, and some even return. The definition of tacky in regards to cars is hard to define. However if you want interesting reading with pics- search the JBO for posts circa 99-01. Alot of stuff we did could be considered tacky but was the Shizzy when we did it.
