PostPosted: Fri Dec 28, 2018 7:08 pm    Post subject: When does it stop being a mod and become a Frankenporsche Reply with quote

I was on another thread today when the term frankenmorgan was used which made me laugh ,I then started to think about when do things stop being personalised mods and a car becomes a Frankenporsche . So my research began and I was staggered at some Porsche I had not seen before nooo and also others that I thought looked good that others had branded a disaster or a frankenporsche .

What do you all think . personally I quite like the roof chopped bottom pic but agree the others are Frankenporsches. Grin Grin Grin

I suppose the honest answer to the question posed is that it matters not if the beauty is all in the eye of the beholder.

Not many mothers readily agree that their baby is the ugly one. Question
