I know that the name of the forum is Cal-look lounge but what about German Lookers. No-one likes these cars in here. Lets start posting photos of German Lookers. These cars have a lot of tech on them. Which ones do you prefer and why?

I'm confused. As Richie says, there are forums for German Lookers indeed, your signature even lists one.  Huh Huh

If you get a hard on looking at road race inspired Supers with T4 motors then you'd be a German Look fan....

Don't take this the wrong way but I actually like them... Shocked

to stray back "into" topic  LOL

and guys dont shoot me  Grin


i like both,  i like the real german look's  that has good suspension tweaks done to it, a nice T4 powerplant  than can hug corners like modern cars

and dislike both..  in some cases

ex:  germanlooks  are the easiest ones to ruin LOL meaning.. kids could senselessly  put some rota wheels, or whatever odd wheels blown to sizes like 17s or 18s
and have a stocker motor, and dropped suspension with no beefing up on the suspension  =   not really hugging corner type of car.. more like it will hug a tree LOL at the next bend

ex:  cal looks  with super thin front tires that u have to drive like a granma on turns.. for the look?   
      amazingly the count of cars/owners in this forum have the right thing going.. decent front tires  thats safe enough for driving wet n dry turns or straights
      and tires big enough at the rear to grip and not spin like its on skates, 


i think  a lil too much of sumthing..  is not so good at times LOL


and maybe i juz like Volkswagen Beetles  in general..

be it taiwan look, german look , cal look ,  shumaguna look  Grin

The lines are blurry, very blurry... the best way to figure out what look it is, is to ask the owner and be surprised...

I think you've answered your own question...

The reason you don't see GL cars here is because its not a GL site. I'm sure its not because we hate German Lookers - I bet lots of people on here appreciate the work and engineering on the good German Lookers, but this is

THE CAL LOOK LOUNGE.....
