I’ve always had a thing about long front overhangs, and not in a positive way. My idea of proper front end proportions runs more to this. On the other end of the scale, this big-nosed 1981 Cadillac Eldorado Pierre Cardin (for sale at Hemmings) is pretty impressive just for the sheer audacity of extending the already longish stock Eldo nose. So now, in addition to just raving over this driveway ramp scraper, can you top it?

Keep in mind, what we’re looking for is the greatest disproportionate overhang in front of the wheels in relation to the rest of the “hood area” behind the front wheels. And the most unbalanced, ugly and useless. AND: I’ve just decided that mid and rear-engined cars don’t qualify. Sorry

Submit a link, or just the name and model, and I’ll fish it out and we’ll post them, either here on a new post this weekend. Happy hunting. (Updated with submission pics below).
