I prefer these guys, they did it a decade ago, their music isn't hair metal trash and they didn't ruin a G-body.

Trashing a G body use to get you a medal of honer.  Has that changed?

Are there supposed to be two videos or just the one? I see a big blank space between the text and the TikTok video.

I LOVE ALL OF THIS. 

The car, the idea, the face melting riffs... it's all awesome. A+++ for execution!

Well ya know, the car might have already been ruined. You know how a lot of people treat their GMs...

After looking at it more I think TikTok just embeds weirdly.

It could be the TikTok embeds. Either way, enjoy and thanks.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Time to find a E36 M3ty Malaise car and make it into a stage for Wasteland Weekend
