Good Trucks Gone Bad - Parting Shot
It's a case of individual taste, and before we get any hate mail, we're big advocates of building a truck that you like and not worrying what anyone else thinks, but we also believe there is a line that should never be crossed. Walking around the Lone Star Throwdown show in Conroe, Texas, we were impressed with the quality of classic C10s, hot-rod–inspired late-models, and over-the-top minis, and then it happened. We stumbled across a money-themed Lambo/gullwing-door Expedition with its hatch cut off and replaced with fiberglass panels housing speakers and screens. Airbagged on 28-inch Starr Killa wheels with DCenti 295/25R28 tires, the Expedition had so much going on it's hard to tell what the theme behind the build was (besides the subtle hint of currency). The paint is a candy-green combination of intestine-looking bubbles that we think is supposed to resemble real-fire smoke and airbrushed money with skulls. It's hard to make money look right in a paint scheme, and this one does not pull it off. Contrary to popular belief, adding dollar bill signs doesn't increase the value or make a truck look high end. Seats wrapped in fabric resembling money are more likely to be seen on an episode of Fashion Police. It's green, it's got money all over it, but we're far from envious.
