For $10,700, be capricious

If you like big butts and you cannot lie, today's Caprice might just make you fly. Punks'll wanna hit it and then they'll wanna quit it, but Nice Price or Crack Pipe's gonna' win it. And while its donks might cause you starin,' the price that it is wearin' might mean a brother just has to deny. » 11/01/11 8:00am 11/01/11 8:00am

1966 Lincoln Continental

Welcome to Down On The Street » 9/24/08 9:00am 9/24/08 9:00am, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. We're going to look at our fifth Alameda Lincoln today; of the first five, the was the crowd favorite in the . Today's car is another suicide-door model, and the oldest of the…

1976 Buick Regal

You know what we haven't had in this series? Donks! Oakland, just across a narrow estuary from Alameda, has a fair number of donkified GM cars, but the trend seems to be dying out. In any case, donkmania never got very big in Alameda, where old-school musclecars and lowriders seem to be the customization themes of… » 6/20/08 9:00am 6/20/08 9:00am

Bored By Cadillacs In Drab Colors?

What is it about Florida? The 2000 election, the Primate Aztek, and now this. What we have here is a 2000 Cadillac DeVille with a wild two-tone paint job, neon, spinners, the works. But mostly it's the paint... well, and the interior. If you buy this car- and the current bid is just $7600 at the time of this writing-… » 12/20/07 10:00am 12/20/07 10:00am

A Little Pinto That Shouldn't; Wait, We Take That Back

Lets see. Would this mid-70s Ford Pinto mid-riser qualify as a Donk or a Bubble? Either way, I think we're all for this kind of thing, if only due to its blend of twisted irony and off-kilter car-to-rims value ratio. We're also wincing for those craptacular Pinto axles and poor differential struggling to make heads or… » 8/23/07 8:39pm 8/23/07 8:39pm

Donk, er Bubble of the Day: Hawaiian Punch Cutlass

We went into this post with every intention of deriding this Olds Cutlass highriser. But we've made a turnabout in the past few minutes, owing to our fondness for Hawaiian Punch and A-body Cutlesses. Sure, this thing has rims the diameter of wagon wheels, sure it has an interior only Spiderman could love, sure it has… » 8/07/07 2:45pm 8/07/07 2:45pm

Crystal-Studded Wheel Size Emblems!

Look, folks, if you're going the donk route, do it right! It's like having a dekotora- do you want subtlety or restraint? Of course you don't! You want to put big jeweled emblems advertising your donk's wheel size, preferably all over the car, but at least on the fenders. Iced Out Emz has a vast selection of such… » 6/13/07 4:30pm 6/13/07 4:30pm

Welcome to Oaktown: Mildly Donked Skylark

At the Oakland Coliseum BART station yesterday, we spied this '69 Buick Skylark sitting proudly by itself in the parking lot. Not so much a donk as a car heavily influenced by donkism (and Oakland, proud home of 2 $hort, is certainly on the leading edge of donkitude, what with the box Caprices teetering on… » 5/17/07 4:30pm 5/17/07 4:30pm
