Shocked

I went to a car show this morning at Willowbrook Baptist Church here in Huntsville. There was a Dodge Magnum there that has to be one of the most inappropriate cars I have ever seen. It has been paint a fushia color, completely shaved, air bag suspension and custom airbrushing. The airbrushing is of topless women among other images. How in the heck to show up at a family oriented car show and church with a car like that. I will NOT be posting pics of the car due to I do not want anyone's kids seeing them.

Really glad Rachel was not with me today.

They should not have allowed it to enter.... Show managers need to hear from those that attended.

I don't believe in censorship, but it sounds like that it wasn't appropriate for a church setting. But I'm all in for wet Tee shirt/bikini contest at certain events.

He didn't win anything and the show staff asked him to move out of the main stream flow of people......

Keith I don't think a magnet shop would have enough magnets in stock to cover all the topless and inappropriate position women.

I agree at certain shows this isn't an issue, but at a church show with alot of kids around is my only issue.

I'm hopeful that folks will voice their concerns to the show organizers. I'm not a prude but frankly as a woman, I hate seeing cars that have this kind of stuff on them. it makes me uncomfortable. It's pretty common on other rigs as well... you know the bull dangly bits hanging from from bumpers, mud flaps with that arch back well endowed hottie, etc... half the people in the world are women and we generally dislike seeing this stuff in public.

Sometimes fewer visuals with more left to the imagination is best.... $.02
