  1. It brings a little tear to the eye to think that the X6 can be driven not just by whitebread d-bags, but by d-bags of all varieties and backgrounds.

    1. Bob is definitely putting some unique twists on the stereotype. I like how, instead of doing the traditional move of parking across two spots, he brings color coordinated poles and a chain to block off the space next to him.

  2. And yet the car in this picture I want the most is the relatively anonymous Lumina in the back.
    I'd still take the G-Wagen though, don't get me wrong.

      1. Zounds, you're right! I'm not as up on my Middle Eastern rebadged Holdens as I would've hoped!

      1. I saw the nose and thought it might have been a Subaru Legacy, but then I saw the rest of the car.

    1. I see what you're saying and I generally agree, but personally I'd go even further and nix the G-Wagen. An old 460/461 with the wash-out interior, small engine, and military spec would be fine I guess, but for me those fakey luxo-barge 463 versions are no better than that X6, maybe worse because they're lying about being awful while at least the X6 is relatively forthright about its regrettableness, even in factory spec. Actually, the marketing of the 463 has so tarnished the old G-Wagen that now the only really respectable M-B off-roader is a Unimog.

      1. I'm not going to claim I hold the modern luxury G-Wagens in the same level of esteem as a proper older model, but if I found a decent deal on one, it'd make a fun toy – they're still as (or more) capable than Range Rovers, right?

  3. I think that the X6 is ugly and ridiculous (like a leather-lined armored personnel carrier), and this one is over the top.

    1. I will gladly buy your leather-lined APC.
      Of course this offer is contingent on the leather being of a certain type.
      Shall we say alewhay enispay?

  4. Well, the way I see it (and the rest of the visually modified cars out there) is at least someone's slightly enthusiastic about cars. It's probably not too realistic to expect everybody to kneel at the temple of stickshifts and Se7ens, but as long as someone's getting excited about something on four wheels that's a good thing in my book. I certainly won't be caught dead in the thing, but for sure at least one person would. And that's better than none: "Does this Versa look like I care?"

  5. It's Friday the 13th, so remember: the 7/32 socket isn't in the toolbox, it's calling from inside the house!

  6. "Thank you for calling Lund, would you like to place an order?"
    "Yes. Give me one of everything that will fit a BMW X6, and throw in a couple of rattle cans of white paint."
