If You Have These Car Mods You’re Stupid

If You Have These Car Mods You’re Stupid


rev up your engines, today I’m going to
talk about the worst car modifications
that people have done over time and you
might be surprised by some of them
because some of the cosmetic ones that
you can do might end you up on the wrong
side of the law while mechanical ones
might not be any problems at all legally
and here I’m gonna talk about the nine
worst car modifications as far as I’m concerned
now not surprisingly car modifications
came about soon after they started
making cars to make them go faster or to
make them cheaper to produce and of
course later the modifications are
purely for speed for the moonshine
runners that have all been to NASCAR and
for guys like Bonnie and Clyde
who used them to rob banks with of
course the bank robbers wanted speed
and agility the moonshiners wanted speed too
but they needed even more they needed
to be able to stand the harsh terrain where
they’re going over dirt roads with
really heavy loads of moonshine and of
course today a lot of stuffs done for
style like lowrider so here’s some of
the dumbest ones as far as I’m concerned
and the first one are those scissors
doors on regular cars now the first ones
one Alfa Romeos you couldn’t even get
them on a lowly Ford for $1,000 extra you
can get one on a Ford Focus really one
spend money so you can exit your car
in a weird fashion it isn’t all that
comfortable it’s kind of fitting that
the Italians are the first one to really
produce them because it is certainly
form over function
yeah they look cool but it’s more of a
pain getting in and out creates problems
as they break they often get water leaks
a dumb thing to do no they’re not stupid
modifications are these crazy air foils
that they put on cars real air spoilers
on a vehicle the race cars use them for
dynamics if you know anything about
aerodynamics some cars are going really
fast they almost turn into a plane and
they want to fly but you take like a
forming on one car it’s got so much body
contours with wind that theoretically
those things could drive upside down
they’d have enough downforce that they
could drive on a road that was upside
down and they would push them up and
suck them up at least that’s what the
engineers tell me I didn’t drive I guess
we should do that you know maybe Top
Gear or some make a track work looks
like that goes and see if they can
actually drive it upside down I’d like
to see that now here’s the spoiler on my
94 Celica it’s not outrageous the car
came with it but really it serves no
purpose this thing doesn’t go fast
enough to need one it does look better
than it without one know if you see some
spoilers people put the back of their
cars bolt on clunky looking things I
just get carried away it turned into
show when I was young the giant tail
fins that they put on cars and
eventually the Cadillac said these
humongous giant tail fins it’s just a
silly thing to do when you start putting
these giant things on cars especially
they’re never gonna go on a racetrack
now the next mods I think are silly are the
neon lights some of these cars look
like an ad for a casino but they’re
really getting carried away with some
them now of course you’re not hurting
anyone with these lights other than
maybe you’re hurting people’s artistic
sensibility it’s kind of a silly thing
to do really when you think about it now
one modification I find especially
annoying is the rolling coal exhaust
that these guys will put on their diesel
trucks and modify them so that whenever
they want they can throw giant billows
of smoke out like they’re in an old coal
train and of course I know some guys are
stuff like that and they just wanna make
fun of environmentalist if they see a
green sticker and a Toyota Prius they’ll
often turn the things on that’s just
kind of crazy I mean we’re not
four-year-olds driving vehicles at least
we’re not supposed to act that way now
the next one I always get a laugh are
fake air intakes and faux hood scoops that
aren’t really connected anything but
they’re sitting there it reminds me years
ago
working on a customer hood bought a
used car it was called the Chrysler TC by
Maserati and then that was the fakest
car I ever saw I jack it up it’s got
dual exhaust and I look now one side
there’s an exhaust that’s connected to
the car and the other side was just
think in a pipe and then it went up and
didn’t go anywhere it was completely
packed and these fake hood scoops and
faked air intakes I’m fooling anybody
really and then action modification is
extreme height just raising vehicles
higher and higher here in Houston
there’s a whole bunch of multi-level
parking lots so many things won’t even fit
in
they’re so tall take the Hummer h1 I
mean it’s a military vehicle there’s no
reason to be driving it in the street
it’s too wide it’s too tall and people
just keep raising them and to do a
counterpoint to that extreme lowering of
cars that’s stupid too, now why race cars
are low cuz the lower you are the better
they handle on the ground and guess what race
cars do they race around on professional
tracks that are perfectly made but don’t
have potholes you get a lower car and
you’re driving in the streets of Houston
customers kids did that to a Chevy Tahoe
of all things so here’s this Tahoe the
scraping on the ground every time he
goes over a speed bump and of course he
put those low profile tires and every
time he hit some rack the tire half the
time wreck the rim he didn’t own the
tires of wheels he went through those
places where you rent them and part of
the rental was an insurance payment so
every time he broke one he just driving
and they’d have to give him another one
free and a new tire cuz he had an
insurance policy for it so I guess if
you’re gonna do something dumb like that
at least buy the insurance for it so you
can keep getting new ones free without
having to pay the full price because you
got insurance for it but really unless
you’re racing cars on the track lowering
them they ride like crap I got Customer
some of those I’ll drive around the
block that’s yeah it feels like the
feelings of my teeth are gonna fall out
every time he had a bump and the next
modification is bizarre wheels I seen
them all some of these the wheels almost
as tall as the car they’re just ridiculous
looking things and of course that ruins
the handling of a vehicle they were not made
for that there are engineers who
designed these things with computers so
that the tire size and the wheel size
matches the suspension of the car and
the transformation you start putting
that stuff on Man Alive
they ride like crap but I guess people
want to look like they’re in a giant
Tonka toy driving down the road and of
course my favorite is the guys that have
those wheels and I see them in Houston
they have extenders on the wheels like
they’re in a Roman chariot and they’re
gonna be riding down so the little
twirler can eat up the spokes of the car
next to them for their little chariot
race they’re having,
the other day I saw one it was a cadillac
had this big old piece sticking out
spinning around I mean
it’s dangerous if they’re gotten
downtown they could cut some of these
legs off they took a corner too fast and
there is a pedestrian there I don’t ask
crazy modifications limo tents and
window graphics I got a real peeve
against them myself because this is
Texas a lot of people carry guns in
their glove box if the police are
pulling somebody over and they got this
deep tint they don’t know what’s going
on inside that car I know it’s against
the law for a certain percentage here
in Texas for sure but nobody enforces the
law they don’t really care about it but
that is dangerous some idiots driving
like a moron you come up to see who it
is and they got the windows tinted so
darkly you can’t see who was in there
you got to be able to see you is driving
a car it’s just not safe for everyone, although
knowing people odds are their gonna
get more gaudy as time goes on, so if you
never want to miss another one of my
new car repair videos, remember to ring that
bell

  2. I can’t stand the trucks and SUVs with super bright lights. I don’t need your head lights in my rear view mirror while we’re all stuck in traffic going 15mph…

  3. Scotty has a point with some of the mods he talks about but hes still forgeting that if you like the mod do it for your concern not someone elses.

  4. Super dark Limo tint is dangerous trying to drive at night, but levels of tint less ridiculously dark are good for a lot of reasons, and the argument about cop stops isnt good. It should just be said on the news and known that if the cops pull someone over with super dark tint then they need to put the windows down until the stop is concluded. And if the people refuse to put the windows down then the cops treat the situation as possibly hostile and go from there. Its that simple. Theres a lot a good reasons to have window tint. We need less laws about bullcrap like thay.

  5. The window tint thing is stupid in America maybe… but elsewhere, where is is extremely weird to drive around with a gun in the car, the window tint serves an important purpose… to keep the car cooler inside. The problem seems to be the ability for people to get guns too easily.

  6. I had a car I bought with the limo tint on the side and rear glass… I have to admit, it was comfortable on a hot sunny day! However, I could not drive the car at night with the windows up. It was dumb having to roll down the windows every time I wanted to turn out of a driveway.

  7. Back in the day if the cops couldn't see through the car and the driver didn't roll down a window they would simply break a window, or two, or three, or four, and there would be stunned idiots looking down the barrels of multiple police guns.

  8. YOOOOO 😂😂 that Cadillac with the extended spokes in Houston you saw was Paul Wall Baby 😂🤦🏽‍♂️💪🏽 come on Scotty!! Look it up.

  9. I wonder how many of Scotty’s “some of my customers” stories are actually true. He seems to have the perfect story to prove his point for every story he tells. I suppose 51 years of being a mechanic will do that. But I’m very suspicious 🤥🤔

  10. The absolute dumbest thing I have ever seen done to a car is putting on wheels bigger than 15", and tires with 1" sidewalls. And these are not all modifications. Car manufacturers, who should know better, are doing it too. Building cars with huge diameter wheels and rubber bands for tires that are undriveable on normal roads without tire and wheel damage. Every single car maker out there is doing this and it has reached the point of absurdity. They are even putting them on minivans. What's next, 24" wheels and tires with 1" sidewalls coming stock on four wheel drive trucks? It will happen, wait and see. Many people are already doing it on their own. A huge lifted 4×4 truck with 24" wheels and no tires. Has the entire world lost their minds? So far this appears to be a U.S. thing mostly, but cars imported into the U.S. from other countries have these crazy wheels and no tires. All of this originated in the ghetto, where cars with such wheels were called donks. Then it made it's way into mainstream society. The new C8 Corvette is a good example. HUGE diameter wheels, wrapped with a thin coating of rubber. Completely undriveable on normal roads without destroying rubber wrapped wheels. My 1976 Corvette has real 15" wheels and 225/70R-15" tires. I had to have a set of 15" wheels modified to fit my 2003 Mustang. Carmakers are all about safety, but they are making some of the unsafest cars out there when they use so called "tires" that have no sidewalls. I can't believe DOT allows this kind of thing to happen. Sidewalls at least 6" wide should be required on all vehicles starting 5 years ago.

  11. I mean these are his opinions mostly, he even said on some of these "yeah they look cool". The car community is more diverse than ever and different types of styles. Some of these are silly mods, you just should'nt call people stupid cause they don't share your same taste

  12. Haha I love dark window tint. I got 20% on my windshield and 5% on all the other windows. Can't see me even in the middle of a sunny day!

  13. The most annoying mod is the one done halfway> the slop job. It's the motive of the modifier. If you modify strictly for attention, you're not in the same league as those that modify for performance and handling.

  14. Good advice scotty if the police cant see you after they pull you over expect to be shot
    God bless America land of the free and brave.!

  15. They don't enforce window tint laws down there? Here in kentucky they enforce that stuff hard. If they even think your windows are to dark thell start giveing you a hard time and go get the tools to test your windows.

  16. yea i bought a lifted diesel that rolled coal…and as soon as i got it home i lowered it back to factory height and modified the fuel injection pump so it cant roll coal and get better mpg

  17. What about the trend of angling the wheels outward at a 30-45 degree angle? What purpose does that serve, other than making the vehicle drive like a crab?

  18. It's apart of our culture to ride 83 or 84 spoke but I understand where you're coming from I like g8 and lower but the new types (giraffe neccs and g15) are doing to much

  19. You forgot the extremely cambered wheels..another irritating and stupid modification. Didn't know about the crazy spinners though…haven't seen them up here…yet.

  20. I've noticed that Scotty has called Low Profile Tyres "Low Profire Tyres" in a few videos… is this a true alternative name or is it a mistake from youtube's best mechanic??

  21. Uhmm Scotty, did you become Grumpy? I mean lately all you do is b*tching about everything! Your channel used to be fun to watch, now it got boring!

  22. All are silly except lifted trucks. If you are into shallow women…as I am… take your truck with your 4 inch lift to the river. Get ready to be inundated with half naked girls who want to do the guy who owns that truck. My physician never knows what STD I have this month.

  23. Hey Scotty someone gave me a 1997 Honda Civic with 333000 miles on it and some change and I've never had a car that's been lowered before or lifted I prefer just Factory height maybe throw some different wheels on it but usually stick with the same size wheel from the factory and when I was younger I probably would have liked this car but now that I'm getting older and I got a bad back I'm only 30 but I had some injuries this damn thing is painful to drive it's been lowered like 3 in from its Factory height and I'm thinking about trading it to someone for something that's his bone stock the guy who had it just got tired of paying tags and insurance in up keeping it and he had other vehicles and it's high miles but everything was done at the Honda dealership and I mean everything there's so much stuff done to this car and you'd expect that at 300,000 miles but yeah lowered cars I f**** hate them

  24. All the thumbs down are from people with rediculously lowered and raised vehicles and every stupid mods..much luv to scotty because he's right.. You can't fix stupid. 😁

  25. Scotty you forgot to talk about the extreme camber kit cars. The only thing I have to disagree with the rear spoilers yeah granted the big are totally stupid looking. But a rear spoiler in a wind tunnel does release the vacuum drag on the rear of the vehicle. It will give you a little better gas mileage.

  26. Calls a hummer H1a Military car… If youre gunna be a car youtuber at least know your stuff please also some people express themselves through their cars its not always practical but its just fun I straight piped my truck and hid the exhaust under the cab cause i liked the way it sounded and looked but I guess Fudds will be Fudds 🤷
