Sometimes the modding community gets a bad rap for the bad taste and impracticality of a few, and we hate to see that! We all played with toy cars when we were kids; what's the point of being a grown-up if you can't treat real cars like big toys sometimes? Here are a few mods that have actually piqued our interest, and in a few cases, even earned our respect.
This Riveted-Out FJ Cruiser
This looks a bit like something out of Mad Max or BioShock, right? Not bad.
The Rat Rod Sled
This guy clearly planned ahead for winter, and we're pretty envious right now.
The Mercedes El Camino
Probably not what the folks at Benz had in mind, but we like it!
Chevy: Old And New
This is really cool and impressive work! We love to see an homage to history merge with modern practicality.
