Hooniverse Weekend Edition: Another Monstrocity From The Hard Drive

Yeah, I know.


  1. That thing looks much better with my glasses off, but it's still a fuzzy abomination.

  2. it may be a single drop in a sea of awful, but is that car pretending it has discs front and rear?

  3. It could be argued that the Matador coupe was a monstrosity even before the awful modifications.

  4. I think the famous Meatloaf quote applies perfectly here. "Anything worth doin' is worth overdoin'."

  5. This is the wrong answer to the old question.
    "What's a Matador?"
    "…Never mind."

  6. I'd swap out the donk-y rims and tires, put on some proper slotted mags and cross-continent race tires, and campaign it at the next Death Race 2000.

  7. Ironically, this didn't require massive modification to look like this.
    Fun fact: Car and Driver named the Mattie the "Best Styled Car" of 1974.

  8. I can't stop staring at this thing. It's completely wrong, but there's something just so right about it (walks away muttering to himself).

  9. Honestly, other than the unnecessary wing on the trunk, I actually like it. The owner probably built in with a mind toward personal styling interest…which to a certain extent, is how I am. Plus, I wouldn't be surprised if the owner actually puts quite a few miles on it, as opposed to only bringing it out every other Sunday when the relative humidity is above 40%.

  10. STATLER: Boo!
    WALDORF: Boooo!
    Statler: That was the worst thing I’ve ever seen!
    Waldorf: It was terrible!
    Statler: Horrendous!
    Waldorf: Well it wasn’t that bad.
    Statler: Oh, yeah?
    Waldorf: Well, there were parts of it I liked!
    Statler: Well, I liked alot of it.
    Waldorf: Yeah, it was GOOD actually.
    Statler: It was great!
    Waldorf: It was wonderful!
    Statler: Yeah, bravo!
    Waldorf: More!
    Statler: More!
    Statler: Encore!

  11. It's trying too hard. All he needed to do was strip the bumpers and much of the chrome. The silly ground effects, hood bulge and wing are insults to a unique design. The import tuner wheels aren't helping either.
    Strip the silly its and mount some Boyd or A/R billet rims and you'd be miles ahead.
