You Can’t Unsee This Modified S550 Ford Mustang With A Donk

Nothing says class like a continental spare. That is, unless that spare is mounted on the back of a sporty coupe like the S550 Ford Mustang. Or mounting it requires a protruding, two-foot extension on the back bumper.

We were blindsided and rendered speechless when we came across these images of this obnoxiously-modified Mustang on subreddit r/Shitty_Car_Mods, submitted by user “grays007”. They depict a current-generation Ford pony car of such unholy distastefulness, conceived and constructed with such wanton disregard for tact and common decency, that we’re┬ácontemplating phoning our elected representatives. You might consider doing the same.

Problem number one for this modified S550 Ford Mustang: a continental spare is going to look tasteless and out-of-place on most any modern car not designed for it. In fact, just about the only context in which the continental spare feels at-home these days is on an SUV, and even there, it’s more of a practical, utilitarian feature than a fashion accessory.

Problem number two: the execution here handily takes things from bad to worse. There’s a massive gap between the factory rear bumper cover and its added extension; the sculpture is completely mismatched between the two pieces; and for some vexing reason, there’s chrome finish present.

Someone save this Mustang, please.

    I believe this is a practical joke. The continental spare looks easily detachable. Some one is having a laugh, and then another laugh at the expense of those who take it literally.

    I think it’s inflatable. I hope so!.
