The Worst of the Worst
Don't buy these bad car accessories.

hen it comes to personalizing your car, there's no shortage of accessories to uglify your ride. Some drivers reign in their personal taste to afford the rest of the road an unoffensive commute, but others throw caution to the wind when decorating, leading to some truly tacky ensembles. What are some of our least favorite things to see on the road? Check out the list.
"Why do you want to make your car look like it got in a gang fight?"
1) Truck Nutz.
By far the ugliest and most offensive thing we see on the road, Truck Nutz are exactly what they sound like--a metal or plastic pair of testicles (ugh, even typing that makes us cringe) that drivers (almost always of oversize pick-up trucks) hang from the truck's hitch. The next time someone cuts you off in a most abrasive manner, check to see if they, quite literally, have the balls to have just done that. Chances are, especially if you're anywhere in the South (hi, Florida!), they do. Just say no to Truck Nutz. What is it about the "z" in "nutz" that makes them even worse?
2) Calvin peeing decals.
First things first: Bill Watterson never okayed any marketing of Calvin and Hobbes. He's been very vocal of his dislike of the Calvin-peeing-on-a-logo stickers, so it stands to be questioned why so many people love these displays. If you're driving a Chevy and Calvin is peeing on a Ford logo, no one wins. No one. You look like a dummy. Peel it off, throw it away—for everyone's sake.
3) Bullethole stickers
Okay, seriously now. We don't know about you, but we try to avoid owning a car that looks like it's been shot. Maybe it's because we actually like our car, or maybe it's because we don't own a gun. Whatever the reason, why do you want to make your car look like it got in a gang fight?
4) Adhesive vents.
These are supposed to make your car look more like a sports car, but anyone who knows what they are there for knows that your stick-on vents are fakes. So what are you trying to prove, and to who? Know your audience.
5) Ed Hardy seat covers.
We're not really sure what it is about Ed Hardy that's so irritating (but it might have something to do with Jon Gosselin), or seat covers (doesn't your car come with those pre-installed? You know, the upholstery or leather?), but the combination of the two of them pushes us over the edge. Thankfully if you have these in your car, you're blocking everyone else's view of them by sitting on them. Keep up the good work.
