Exclamation Trans Am/Audi R8 Poser!

I spotted this in sandwich at president Roosevelt's train car cafe a few months ago, thought i would share! I just had to stop and take a picture....This is soo disgusting on all levels, how could you wreck such a amazing German sports car!?!?!? Stick on scoop on top of glass!? Really also the front licenses plate just ties it all off! If your such a trans-am/hard core American, why do you have such a brilliant German sports car!? Ewwwwww!

I actually like it - it's very well done. I'm not a fan of Trans Am nor Audi, but if I loved both, this is a nice job in combining the two IMO.

I don't like the scoop in the glass because of visability reasons, but it doesn't look bad to me. The wheels, the paint, the trim work etc all work well with each other. Again, I wouldn't have done it but I think whoever thought this through overall did a nice job.

I wouldn't call that a poser as much as a confused soul.

To each his own.

At first, I thought maybe this guy actually entered his car in a Trans AM race or is somehow affiliated to the Trans AM racing series?

Then after looking at transamflorida.com, I have my doubts now.

It looks like Kit the talking transam went out one night, got drunk and reproduced with some trailer trash in the parking lot
