    Is it just me or does #8 look photoshopped?

    you know spoilers slow a car down. the reason they are on race cars is to put drag onto the back and therefore weight on the rear of the car and allow it to take corners faster, otherwise they bounce around. every spoiler on a street car is pointless its just there to make it look better

    The Subaru in pic 5 has a top speed of around 160, it does need a spoiler. Probably not one that big, but still, it`s anomalous here.

    Yeh Subaru main spoiler is legit, although i dont know about the small one at the top of the rear window! Never seen that one before.

    The upright sections inside the rear spoiler are a fallout from WRC. They are there to provide increased straight line stability accross loose and bumpy surfaces.

    I`ve seen spoilers on vans and trucks but they were just slightly less hideous than these.

    That`s not saying much though. I think every jacked up spoiler, especially the god-awful carbon fiber ones, are terrible.

    The rest...BAHAH. People are morons. XD

    for the people who think the spoilers on trucks are stupid you are partially correct. IF they look like these type of spoilers or even the after market bolt on ones then yes they are useless but some spoilers(the ones that slope up and are the full width of the truck) are there probably because they haul huge horse trailers or other types of trailers and its to help reduce the air drag on the flat part of the trailer.

    They`re doing it wrong.

    Spoilers are supposed to be facing downwards to push the back of the car towards the ground at high speeds for better traction. Many of these seem to be doing the opposite.

    After long and hard brainstorming on #5 my opinion is that the added small wing at the top of the back window creates a small turbulence that lowers the large back wings downforce. The small wing doesn`t even create downforce on its own as it is clearly on the low pressure zone.

    So yes, a fail. The large one is part of special model package so that`s original in a sense.

    I used to drive a Fusion. It had a small (factory) spoiler on the rear deck lid, and it looked ok. My friend was trying to talk me into putting a spoiler that looked something like # 7 on it. I didn`t, of course, but I don`t understand how stupid some people are willing to make their car look for `performance`, which 9 times out of 10, doesn`t happen.

    What part of your brain backfires into thinking it`s okay to make a giant cardboard spoiler to duct tape to the back of your trunk?

    I always wanted to get a crappy car and put a spoiler on it that looked like one from a sprint car.

    This is a sprint car:

    They`re not really mods, they`re just spoilers. All of them are.

    @BoomBox

    A spoiler IS a mod. Mod is short for modification. Those are Modifications.
