What Could Possibly Go Wrong: Anime Graphic Edition by Dan Zimmerman | Jul 18, 2011 | 15 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Be prepared to eat a fair amount of roadside gravel if you’re stopped for speeding. comments irock350 says: July 18, 2011 at 08:43 I’m confused, is this a bad thing? Is the anime chick going to jump off the car and go on a shooting rampage? Do you object to BMW’s being getting riced out? Are you going to complain about the trigger disipline of a cartoon charcter? Or do all vinyl graphics incite rage? What is going on? Reply GunKing1 says: July 18, 2011 at 08:44 Ah, the 135ti. Almost bought a 135 a few years ago, but got a 3 series instead. Reply David says: July 20, 2011 at 20:43 Me too. Except I ended up with an 8 year old Focus. Reply Rob Crawford says: July 18, 2011 at 08:53 I’m with irock350 — are you assuming the police are incapable of comprehending it’s a cartoon image? Should I be concerned when transporting my miniatures collection? Will I be pulled over and roughly treated for transporting literally hundreds of heavily armed men in my Jetta? Reply Daniel Zimmerman says: July 18, 2011 at 08:57 I’m suggesting there are at least a few law enforcement officials who would take a dim view of this while approaching a car they’ve stopped for doing 75 in a 60. Reply irock350 says: July 18, 2011 at 09:09 The cops would most likely take a dim view to the driver speeding in a BMW than what graphics are on the car… Or it could be that the owner responded to the cop, “Hey it’s limited to 130, your lucky I was only doing 75.” or “Speeding tickets aren’t my problem I have an accountant for that.” or more likley the cop is pissed becuase he is a 15 year vet working traffic and he is pulling over a 20 year old kid in a $50,000 car that has an extra $10,000 in rims, stero equioment, graphics and bolt-on perfomance parts to look like a ricer he saw in Fast and theFurious part 11: Douchebags and Dubs . I doubt any cop would be any more upset at that particular graphic than any other vinyl pgraphic slapped on the car. Reply Joe Grine says: July 18, 2011 at 09:15 And I’ll bet you think having a “bad cop, no donut” bumpersticker is a bad idea as well? 🙂 Reply Rob Crawford says: July 18, 2011 at 10:16 Still not seeing what an officer would have against it. If the decal were of Clint Eastwood as The Man With No Name, would that make a difference? Is it the presence of the two-dimensional representation of a gun? If so, well, “hoplophobic” comes to mind. That’s a seriously irrational fear. I’d expect that officer to have pulled people over to investigate a shooting because they had those fake bullet hole stickers… Reply Chris Dumm says: July 18, 2011 at 09:30 This could be a cool chick’s car, but any *male* driving this probably needs to be euthanized. Reply 2Wheels says: July 18, 2011 at 10:05 Looks like the rich kids version of the Honda Civic with the spray painted black hood and decals the owner got from Autozone, with oversized exhaust tip of course. At least this one hasn’t gone too overboard and totally ruined a nice car. Reply Van says: July 18, 2011 at 10:14 Aside from poor taste in aesthetics, probably nothing. Reply Bob H says: July 18, 2011 at 10:17 This might work! Upon seeing a male in the driver’s seat the officer would probably be laughing too hard to write the ticket. Reply Aaron says: July 18, 2011 at 12:56 I saw a NY vanity plate with “U R NUTHIN” once. Mid-range Audi with fancy rims, aftermarket repaint and tinted windows. Wanna bet that guy got keyed at least a couple time a month? Reply JoeM.C says: July 18, 2011 at 17:04 “Do you object to BMW’s being getting riced out?” Yes! Poor car has to have some knucklehead owner. This picture makes me feel the same way as when I drive into the parking garage at work (which is at the local university), nothing but nice cars being driven by bleach-blonde gum-snappers on their cellphones. Ah-ha! After some research that appears to be an advertising image and not a real car with that decal…However that research also turned up page after page of actual nice cars *shudder* defiled in this manner. Reply fmonk says: July 18, 2011 at 17:17 Aside from police harassment, what could possibly go wrong? 1. Smile and winks from men. 2. Laughter from women. 3. Sympathy and comradery from pedophiles. 4. All of the above. Reply Leave a Reply to fmonk Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
