Today's Question of the Day asked at what point does the turd enter the punchbowl of car customization? For your consideration we present the "Wildest Custom Z On The Planent." Our be-mulleted alter-ego kinda loves this thing.
Yes, it steps way over the line of tasteful customization, but in doing so has transcended its original 1979 Datsun 280-ness and become a whole different animal. It might be the embodiment of everything lovably awful about the 80's. It's a feathered haircut full of Aquanet and tight neon pink snakeskin pants rolled into one. Ridiculous consumption defined, but it celebrates this, unashamed. It helps that according to the seller, it's actually got the snoot full of custom parts too, rather than just cocaine (brace for a murderous spelling spree):

We guarantee this car has seen more air guitar and double devil-horns than any a Billy Idol concert. Who knows what the condition of the car is these days — the pictures seem pretty vintage — but it doesn't really matter. The car is just the idea. Rock on custom Z, rock on.
