The Okie Corral

It's pretty hard to Richard Simmons a Beetle beyond OEM but those lashes pull it off.

Saw one for the first time yesterday morning. I had to take a second look to make sure I saw what I saw. I doubt I will be driving one of those with eyelashes.

Seen these for years. It's part of the whole highschool/college girl, VW thing.

Now, what I want to see is the lashes on the front and the cowballs on the back.

I saw some a few weeks ago, the girl was mad because they flex back at highway speeds and scratched the hell out of her paint job.

I walked by thinking "well duh" lol

Wouldn't that be "headlight lashes"?

I dont care for them, but anything that gets people interested in their cars is, in general, a good thing for car people.

Long live industry. When you see innovation, when you see growth, when you see construction, smile, laugh, be happy. It makes your life better, even if it is not your style.

I saw a pair a couple weeks ago. They cracked me up. Made the car easier to find in the parking lot, I guess. If you back in, anyway.

.. and be grateful to live in a society where people can indulge in such frivolous things.

And we should celebrate those who have the creativity to conceive such a product, with the guts to invest in and market it.

I have always dreamed of inventing something stupid and pointless, without any utilitarian value whatsoever, that everyone in America would decide they absolutely had to have.

Something like the "Pet Rock"...or these "car lashes".

It sucks that they beat me to it, but best of luck to the guys selling these crappy little things! I hope they make millions!

I told my wife if we got a minivan I was going to put the cowballs under the back.

The coolest set of "cowball" like things I ever saw (I hate them) was an old set of pistons.

They could market a bra for the car that actually looks like one.

There's a pepto pink Chevy cavalier around here that I see a lot that has hello kitty all over it with these lashes. Wish I could get a picture for y'all, but we're always going opposite ways.

There's a few cars around here with those, a couple of Beetles, a Miata, and a BMW I think.

The Truck Nuts are fare more common, naturally
