Like what was said..To each his own".

The LLR still looks like an Insight........Except for the turbo stripes.

Now you're just hating. Get over yourself. I'm just posting pics so people who wants to cut their spat can have an idea.

I'm a Blasphemer, get it right!!! and book me a seat in the original Wickerman, not the Nic Cage remake.

I can appreciate both looks. I've definitely gotten used to the spats, don't think they look bad at all now. But I do vaguely remember what I thought about the car before I bought one - Something only a mother could love.

With the 32mm spacers especially, the car looks pretty slick with the spats cutout. Still not something I'll be doing though.

With one spat missing, I cringe every time I walk up to the car from the drivers side. Can't wait to make it right again.

Some will try to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Often others will succeed and make a sow's ear out of a silk purse.
