3. This car is on lock down.  

 

4. That Chuck Norris... 

 

5. Make sure you turn it off or you'll drain your... AA batteries??

21. Pretty sure this guy is going to bungee out his front window on impact.  But at least he'll snap back into place... 

 

22. I think the knob is in the wrong spot...   This tailgate doubles as a picnic table.  

 

23.  Car fixes, "For the Bold!"   Nacho Cheese is the best flavor.

Find Quality Touch Up Paint

Order touch up paint on-line!

All touch up paint is not created equal! The generic paints you buy at auto part stores will likely NOT match your vehicle’s paint exactly. Believe it or not, even the OEM dealers usually stock “close enough” colors. We recommend PaintScratch.com since their high quality paint is freshly made, they custom mix each order for you upon receipt, and they offer a color match guarantee.
