That's obviously the ultra-rare ground attack version of the Habu, judging from the wannabe cannon stuck to the nose. Smile

Here's the real thing, on an A-10:

The SR's detachable nose, while roomy, wasn't that roomy! Laughing

Was that taken at Nellis or Tyndall? That airplanes tail designation gives it away, and it looks like a F15

I was hoping that was his targets and he was going to take em out. I think everyone should have guns mounted to their cars. That would straighten out some crappy drivers real quick. Laughing

Hee hee hee . . .

This car belongs to the president of our car club. That bastard has more metal flake than a bass boat (the car, not the owner).

A guy here in Denver put Benz lights on a Ghia just like that 10 years ago or so...I think it was the earlier generation of E-class lights, though, which looked better.

They really needed to do something with the ass end of that thing to finish it off. Definitely qualifies as abortion in the sense of "incompleted."

It's not just the fact that they did not modify the rear. Those headlights just plain look terrible on that car. It's not incomplete, it's just disgusting.

True enough. This is the other car I'd mentioned--the earlier style E-class lights definitely look better, although it's still clearly either an abortion or bastard, depending on your perspective:

I remember that black one. Some big bucks went into that car, if I remember right, because the guy had a hot rod shop do all the work instead of doing it himself. It does look a lot better, but I still think that stock Ghia lights are nicer looking. Laughing At least they match the original design of the car though, unlike that yellow one.

That yellow car is exactly why I cant stand most newer cars, because they look like crap. My opinion, if you like it, that's cool. I just don't. Now the black car is not nearly as offensive to me, especially if you got rid of the inboard lights. Kind of looks Porsche 959 esq. Actually I think it pulls the look off better than the 959.

This is exactly what Bugatti had in mind when he penned the original design of this car. Probably.
