All the rage in the 80's

Quite probably one of the worst ideas to come out of the 80's in an automotive sense, (excluding of course pontiac fiero's and the Delorian) was a styling trend that had everyone sawing cars in half and making "shortys" out of em. Whilst out on a recon trip for triumph parts with Assid from Small City Cycles tonight, I had the horrible misfortune to come across this rather shinning example of half assery. Yep - much like pastel colors and Don Johnson in top siders, this shit thankfully went the way of the dino. Poor little wagon, at some point in its life it was, Im sure, a better car. But its fated now, to live out the rest of its life looking like it got rear ended by a friggin semi-truck and was never properly repaired.
This is why we say around the shop, just because you can do something dosent mean you should do something.
