I’ve been watching this Metro’s transformation for several years, and it seems to be complete now. Just needs a hood that opens and closes electrically.
I don’t like to criticize other peoples vehicles. However, I think that car needs to take a long drive off a short pier.
In cases like this I love to criticize other people’s vehicles – this one is ‘effing ugly. I hate “art cars”. Unless they’re BMW’s done by Andy Warhol, Roy Leichenstein, etc.
Hey, it’s Art! I’ll bet it elicits a lot of grins going down the street, especially from little kids.
Are those scales and fins made of metal or what?
It sure beats those fake eyelashes I saw on a new-style Beetle not too long ago….or worse yet…any over-the-counter Made-in-China Style “customization accessory”. Nothing screams “I want my ride to be unique like everybody else’s” like sticky-tape applied hood scoops!
+1 A lot of the working class Mexicans like to “customize” their rides with cheap crap from JC Whitney or Vato-Zone. Accessories like that just scream “poser mobile” to me.
Now the metro featured actually works for me. It has a coherent theme and makes an otherwise mundane car the court jester.
They should have started with an Anglia – they could have had not just an art car, but a great vehicular pun. 🙂
Anyone who takes the time to do this kind of mod must have a great sense of humor and an upbeat sense of life. I like it! I wonder if the angler lure lights up like it’s deep water cousin?
In my home state of New Jermany the fun police would be all over this one………
Except for the fins and fangs I don’t see anything that the man could hassle you for. Bring the fangs in a bit and paint an orange stripe on the fin.
Something tells me those giant protruding steel blades wouldn’t meet the Euro NCAP pedestrian impact standards.
Looks like a ready-made “24 Hours of LeMons” car to me. Drop in a cage and go!
Looks like some steampunker’s F***ed up mutant pet car-fish to me.
On the metro-mod front, I saw one the other day with the Mercedes three point star on the rear hatch just under the window. All the other identifying badges had been removed.
Hey, at 50+ miles per gallon a tank , I could put up with the jokes.
Plus, for only $500 a Metro, you turn more heads than a Ferrari Daytoni, Lamborghini Countach, Vector W3, and Split-window Vette… For only a fraction of their costs. Lol
That’s hilarious! It’s even funnier because my students just watched Finding Nemo as our ocean unit wrap-up and to celebrate the end the school year. Thanks for the good laugh on a Saturday morning.
