I know it's a bit naff, but it still gets a laugh from me every time. It's brilliant.

ITCouldBeWorse Thu 03-Oct-13 21:25:03

I love them, but then I put antlers and a nose on my car at xmas

ClockWatchingLady Thu 03-Oct-13 21:26:33

I really hope I live near you, ITCould. I never even knew such things existed.

I saw a bright yellow one with eyelashes about a week ago, I looked at the driver expecting to see a twenty something girl; but it was a middle aged bloke... It probably did actually belong to his twenty something daughter, but it looked bloody odd.
Dh would get a taxi rather than drive a noddy car and so would I

I saw a car with eyelashes a few months back. It made me do this face... grin

Cars with eyelashes. Really? I've never ever seen them shock I would have thought that I'd have noticed if one drove past.

Stoppicking Thu 03-Oct-13 21:38:57

When did cars lose having a garfield stuck to the back windows?

My DTDs love eyelash cars! There are a couple near us that we see quite often. One has pink butterflies painted on it too, which makes it even more of a thing of wonder in their eyes smile

5madthings Thu 03-Oct-13 21:40:42

Nope, I love them and would out them on our car, dp however will not hear of it sad

We have one near us with pink eyelashes, and a diamanté strip as upper eyeliner!

Donkeyok Thu 03-Oct-13 21:43:20

Na I see one every morning on the school run. Its Barbie pink too. Yuck

drawsofdrawers Thu 03-Oct-13 21:44:31

YABU they are AWFUL.

KenAdams Thu 03-Oct-13 21:45:47

Someone near me has them along with a "powered by Fairydust" decal. It looks unspeakably shit.

BrokenSunglasses Thu 03-Oct-13 21:47:19

The 'powered by fairy dust' stickers are undoubtably shit.

The eyelashes however, are awesome.

ITCouldBeWorse Thu 03-Oct-13 21:48:39

There is a car near our home, which is painted in cow print and has udders (so my dc tell me). I always get distracted by the bloody traffic!

KnockMeDown Thu 03-Oct-13 21:50:22

My personal absolute hate on this theme are cars with poppies attached to the bumpers, especially when they are left on way past November..........

There's a car near me with bollocks. I'd rather have bollocks than eyelashes

Earthworms Thu 03-Oct-13 21:51:11

I want a 'powered by an exothermic oxidising reaction' sticker as an antidote to the fucking fairy dust ones

ClockWatchingLady Thu 03-Oct-13 21:51:12

I hope they soon install giant mascaras for them at carwashes.

WMittens Thu 03-Oct-13 21:53:36

I want a 'powered by an exothermic oxidising reaction' sticker

That's just gone on my 'must have' list.

But the eyelashes are shit of the highest order.

ITCouldBeWorse Thu 03-Oct-13 21:54:44

Would the bollocks not be a problem with speed bumps

ClockWatchingLady Thu 03-Oct-13 21:55:07

(but yes the fairydust thing is a bit weird)

How can bollocks work? Do they drag along the road? That's almost as impractical as actual bollocks on actual men (ridiculous design).

Bunbaker Thu 03-Oct-13 21:57:52

I saw one today. I thought it looked rather silly.

I am rather boring about cars though. I just see them as a functional method of transport to get me from A - B as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Shaky Thu 03-Oct-13 22:05:26

Every time I see a car with the "Powered by fairy dust" sticker on, I mutter "No it bloody isn't, it is powered by petrol, like everybody else's car... mutter... grumble.. mutter..."

I hate the eyelashes thing too.

I am grumpy.
