Yeah, bad parody, but if you do anything with cars, you know these people.

I'm vaguely reminded of the counterfeit Mini Cooper virals that ran a while back.

And now I feel the strong urge to mount a blower and rear spoiler to my Nissan Sentra.

Maybe paint a skull on the side as well.

Weird. Those guys weren't Romanian, but everyone else was. Dacias are also excellent cars.

Bad parody? Granted, I've got no flash so I haven't seen all those embeds, but from the text and pics I was thought this was the genuine article. Regardless, I appreciated this fpp, and became inspired to share this link now: Gentoo is for Ricers [via]

Actually, if you click on the Pro-Street banners on the page, it takes you to a legit Romanian auto repair shop's web page. It's viral marketing, but it is damned funny. The videos are the best- they are so bad... in the way that Bob Hope is obviously reading from cue cards and talking to the camera in the the "On the Road" movies is bad- so bad it's funny.

quin.... the counterfeit crash test at the end of that Mini Cooper thing was hilarious.

I liked the photograph of the grandparents. Makes them bad boys with respect but I also love that grandfatherly style of sweater, jacket, and cap.

Hey, now I know where to sell my Geo Metro. It's a Romanian street racer waiting to happen!

The donut attempt had me laughing out loud. Yes, my tastes are simple.

Pretty funny.... my car could definitely use a skull.

On the other hand, in the Ukraine they do their custom car modding with class.
