Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but there are some automotive trends that may be completely inexcusable. What might start as a “good idea” can quickly turn into a terrible mistake, and is the stuff of nightmares.
Customizing your car is a great way to add your own personality to it and make it unique. When these fads end in a ride that makes people wince and run away in horror, there might be a problem. Here are terrible trends that if we’d stop before they happened if we only had a time machine.
