The donk culture has surged in popularity in the past decade as big rims have become a status symbol in many car scenes. This has led to bigger and bigger rims, and where once 20-inch “dubs” were impressive, now those with the means aim for no less than two solid feet of bling and chrome. And if you can afford more, you buy more.
Up on eBay is a chromed-out “King Camaro” feautring big wheels, big power, and a big attitude. But with no bids, will the King ever find a home to call its own?
That depends on if there is a buyer out there scouring eBay for a custom ride. The problem with donks can be that they’re so highly customized and personal, that reselling such a ride can be problematic.With a chrome paintjob or vinyl wrap, massive 32-inch Forgiato rims, and a supercharged, 600-horsepower LS3 engine, this 2011 Camaro certainly deserves to be called “the King.” That’s why it was on the cover of the February 2013 issue of Rides Magazine as well.
We haven’t even mentioned the tens of thousands of dollars in audio equipment and custom interior tricks. This includes two flatscreen televisions on lifts and a total of 6,500 watts of amplifier on board. Alas, the supposed $150,000 investment is unlikely to ever be recouped, and even with a starting bid of just $30,000, not a single interested party has placed a bid.
We guess beauty (and bad taste) is in the eye of the beholder.
