Oh my. :shock: Sorry Mike, if I had known it was that bad, I would have left it in the other thread ...or maybe moved it to off-topic! :lol: That wing reminds me of the dude who put the ironing board on his rear deck as a joke.

Ah bud. Dat is da dopest XR. What's dat thing run?

That was a pretty pitiful attempt. Used capital letters and punctuation, but oh well. I can imagine the owner was quite a nerd. There is a pretty cool looking Sierra though with a big wing like that. Of course, the wide body and more make it awesome. If I were to build a Pike's Peak Merkur this car would be my inspiration for looks.

And he was likely lapping that car. In one race in 05 he took second and third place was the only car the top two didn't lap. Challenged for the win and often held the lead it looks like in the 2005 Sports/Saloon Championship in the UK. Not sure on results for end of year, just a few individual events found searching google.co.uk

Dude, that rear wing should be illegal! In fact, give me the name, phone number and address of the person who violated this Merk and I will take care of what needs to be done.. oh yes.. a beating is required.
