Pretty easy to make a classic look silly... why not just checker plate the side as well

Old car would look OK with different wheels and maybe loose the red grill.

Throw a nice set of BBS and a new grill on there and that car would be okay. I'm pretty sure it's been posted here before. No surprise who the hell would want it the way it is.

Other than the wheels and the steering wheel being on the wrong side(!), it seems like a pretty good car - and he did offer to knock off the wheels. But those wheels! Why do people do this?

I'm still not a fan of the ground effects kit on the back. It doesn't look right for the car.

I saw an older continental with 22s on it the other day, the thing would barely turn, you could hear the tires rubbing the fenders.

Damn those crazy Australians!

He's been trying to sell it for a while.

The car has one thing going for it, he's put an alloy M117 5litre engine in there.

That is some donk!

10" width too wide for the front, unless you use crazy thickness on hub-centric spacers and those are probably too long to avoid having wheels poking out both sides. If you have to match that in the rear, you'll have to pull the wheel wells out and that requires a bit of specialist metal banging to do properly. 8.5" front is about as wide as you want to go with relatively slim/high quality H&R or similar TUV approved spacers and longer, similarly high quality bolts. Personally, I don't care for the wheels, but whatever floats your boat.
