Welcome back to our regular series examining the most popular posts on some of Reddit’s more specific and hilarious communities. In the past, we’ve enjoyed the odd, visceral joy of things cut in half, and the unintentional architectural horrors of evil buildings. Today, we’re focusing on one of my personal favorite subreddits, r/shitty_car_mods.
It's a pretty popular destination, boasting about 106,000 subscribed users. It gets by because there’s no shortage of people doing terrible things to their vehicles, and the world needs a reliquary for dumb spinners. I grew up with a dad who installed a fake “grenade launcher” button in his Ford pickup, so I think I’m uniquely qualified to bring you the highlights. Below, enjoy eight car mods from people who have a very bad idea of “cool.”
At 5,875 upvotes, the one thing on this subreddit I would actually buy.Are we sure this shouldn’t be in “awesome car mods” and not “shitty car mods?” Like, I get that it’s dumb, but I’m pretty sure looking like Vin Diesel is better than whatever fucking neon you’re putting under an Escalade. Just my take.
At 5,358 upvotes, technically not a car mod but absolutely amazing nonetheless.
I want to see these things everywhere. This guy has the right idea. We need shitty fake Battlebots weaponry on all traversal devices. I want a Razor Scooter with 50-inch rims. Get on it.
