We imagine that axe murderers and other unsavory types have a special circle of Hell waiting for them when their tickets ultimately get punched. In all likelihood, these are dark and miserable people. For them, Hell might be a place where the Hello Kitty theme plays on endless loop, incessantly friendly cartoon animals try to befriend them, said cartoon animals cannot be killed, and they're all driving Mitsubishi i minicars fitted with the rims you see at right. Because you know, cute overload isn't cute overload until you have Hello Kitty wheels (that cost $900). Avoid a life of violent crime (or the use of hallucinogenics), and this eternal fate can be avoided. Unless you go to Japan, of course. Then all bets are off, and you're on your own.
Thanks for the tip, hkh!

      I thought Hell was being stuck driving uphill in a torqueless McHonda while listening to Pearl Jam. Oh well, speaking of McHonda - great rims for the McCivic! Or a 'lil Mini!

      It's funny, I was actually expecting a lot worse! Pink and white with no way to look away (like a car accident).

      What's with you people? What cars can only be marketed to macho 'Merkin man? This is for a car that's specifically targeted at the Japanese Office Lady demographics - and I'd say it's doing a pretty decent job. So I guess if a hot Japanese chick drives one of these, some sexist American male gets to curse her to Hell? This entire post is designed to attract the racist/sexist commentors who lingers here daily... the true face of autoblog and Weblog Inc emerges. No wonder joystiq turned into such a hell hole.

      Those rims are nothing compared to this:

        That serves that car right for being so lame in the first place.

      Imagine the crushing disappointment of being run over by a set of those...

      Well yesterday on my drive home, I saw a Hello Kitty Baby on Board sign in the back window of a vehicle. *shudder*

      Sadly (and I do mean very very sadly) my wife would love that car. Especially those wheels. Therefore I shall never speak of them to her. I feel dirty just having looked at them.

      These are much more tasteful then the Ronal Bear wheels and that daily style wheel that came out the same time as the New Beetle.

      Someone already posted the link to see the Ronal Bear wheel which I think was dropped in the late 90's (long product life for somthing that horrid) and I encourage everybody to take a moment to laugh at them.

      I thought the special Hell was for pedophiles and people who talk in the theatre.

        They have one, too, but it's populated by bloodthirsty, chainsaw-wielding Teletubbies.
      • 7 Years Ago
      pfft, those have nothing on these

        I remember these from the late 80s! Some cheerleader chick at my high school had a set on her (natch) white Cabriolet.

        And re: the Hello Kitty wheels - I kinda threw up in my mouth. Hell awaits...
        • 7 Years Ago
        BEARS! That is even better than the Hello Kitties. That is way too cute. If they came in my wheel size I would have them. Except my husband would kill me because I would end up having to get out of the car and look and adjust when parking to ensure my bears were always sitting upright.

        man, i totally forgot about those wheels. there's also a company that made wheels with a golf club design on the spokes.
