Probe disgrace

I saw a black Probe yesterday with Tickford wing badges AND XR6 badges, what a wanker. :fmad:

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I've seen a Datsun Stanza with a Mercedes 190E badge.

I think there is a page dedicated to this stuff. Something like http://www.riceboypage.com

if I put a skyline GTR badge on my car, does that mean my car will be a twin turbo?

What about people who take the Ford badges off their cars, does that mean they are no longer Fords?.
