The "Exception to the rule" Thread

All of us have our own opinions and biases when it comes to car styling (and I think by now we all have a pretty good idea of what each others are as well :P). Every now and again a car pops up that, for whatever the reason may be, transcends these 'rules' that I've established. I encourage you to post these cars here.

Not the greatest example of what I'm babbling about but it reminded me to create this thread:

Wacky coloured wheels can DIAF. Especially when coupled with other random bits and pieces forced to be the wheel colour in a pathetic attempt to make it 'flow'. However, I can't help but love this car and somehow I think it would lose some of its charm if the wheels were say silver.

Hate mismatched coloured bays, but I want to eat that car. :shock:

'Sup Raj :)

Much like everything I think mismatched bays have their place... I have an unhealthy love for mint green/ brown so as soon as I saw it I loved it... roof colour is garbage but he did say it was going. It also makes me happy he doesn't have mint centred wheels/mint script handles/mint x-hairs/mint stickers. Nice thing about the mint bay is it's gone by shutting the hood.

:lol:

Sounds like you get to finally explain to me what the fuck a 'salad shooter' is outside of a colloquialism for these wheels!

Yet more Corvette wheels lol, but not really the point. This thing on paper is such a mess, yet I found myself staring at the picture for too long trying to muster why I didn't hate it.
