An example of how NOT to sell your riced out Camaro

I was bored and looking at cars for sale, and found this customized Camaro: http://www.mautofied.com/listing-100073988.htm


I saw his girlfriend (I guess) next to the car, and said "ew."


And then I saw this and went "huh?"


Why is there a picture of the car spraying sparks on a classified ad to sell the car?

I don't know about the V6 Camaros, but on the LS1 Camaros, those sparks would be coming from the exhaust pipe dragging on the ground where it "ducks" below the axle. So wtf is he thinking?

I then check his myspace he linked to, and look at the video on the main page...

What an idiot...

Not sure if he has it on this particular camaro, but lowriders are often built with a large piece of metal welded onto the frame specifically for throwing sparks whilst driving in "slammed" mode.

HTH,

With all of the unusual f-bodies I have seen posted, the only thing I can do now is give a slight chuckle, shake my head, and wait for the next posting.

Sometimes it's hard to tell if you guys are kidding.

The car doesn't look awful, but the sparks...come onnnnn.

Perhaps there's some part that's MEANT to be sparking for some deranged reason, and he's advertising that?

The words "Tarred and Feathered" come to mind.

It's very simple actually...

Optispark= notorious for spark-scatter inside of cap

4th Gen Catback Exhaust= not exciting enough as it is

Spark scatter from Opti run out the exhaust= Ka-pwing! Genius!

If you haven't seen it bofore, yes, the sparks are on purpose, the hydraulics control box was a dead giveaway. Never understood that trend though.
