WTF Friday: Front End Swapping Madness Continued

3

Earlier in the week Jalopnik posted a link to a Mercedes clipped Expedition that triggered memories of a post here on SIE from three years ago showcasing a collection of rather questionable front end swaps.

At the time I had intentions of making rather alarming front end swaps a semi reoccurring WTF Friday theme but since I am just revisiting it now it’s safe to say it slipped my mind.

Today I make “good” on those intentions.

My past self ought to be proud, present self a little horrified at the examples below.

wtf_front_end_1
There is… a lot going on here and none of it too my tastes. The roof is ok I suppose.
wtf_front_end_3
This reminds me of a blob fish
wtf_front_end_4
Yeah… the did the back too
wtf_front_end_11
Where the truck above reminded me of a Blob Fish this Camaro is reminiscent of an ant eater
wtf_front_end_7
I actually took this photo myself a few years ago, I’ve seen it a few times since then
wtf_front_end_8
The previously mentioned Mercedes clipped Expedition
wtf_front_end_9
Needs more low
wtf_front_end_10
This almost, kind of works… almost
wtf_front_end_14
Celica Supra…
wtf_front_end_15
Considering the two chassis uses the work here seems decent enough, the end result though…
wtf_front_end_2
Huh?!
wtf_front_end_5
I don’t really even like Baur convertible e21s from the factory but I think they deserve better than this
wtf_front_end_6
Anyone order a cow catcher?
wtf_front_end_12
I’m not going to lie I am actually kind of OK with this…
wtf_front_end_13
…This is a big reason why

I think I might do a Theme Tuesday on good looking front end swaps this week to make up for all the bad.

Site Updates

I’ve had a lot of requests lately for an event calender and I’ve been meaning to do one for a long time now so I think I’ll just hand crank one out this weekend while I look for an easier to maintain solution in the future.

Hopefully now that I have actually mentioned it I will feel some sort of pressure to actually get it done.

Flashback Friday

The legendary Butch King left a comment on the site recently saying that his time attack Blazer is officially dead. I absolutely loved this truck so let’s all take a minute to mourn it’s awesome.

RIP


I’ve asked Butch what his next project is… hopefully he responds.
