This Guy Walks Around At Night Pimping Random People’s Cars With Cardboard

Photographer Max Siedentopf prowls the streets of Amsterdam and “upgrades” random stranger’s cars with some masking tape and cardboard art. Why does he do it?

“Individuality, self-expression, and status are more important than ever these days,” Siedentopf told Vice. “But for some reason, you see that things as ordinary as cars are getting personalized less and less, while it could be a strange but great form of self-expression. I thought I’d do people a favor by giving them custom car mods.”

Though fiddling with people’s property is highly illegal, we just cannot get enough of Max’s car tuning art installations. Also, we are sure that the owners of these regular cars also had a great laugh after seeing their vehicles cardboard crafted in such a hilarious way. Scroll down below to see this unique take on street art for yourself!

Im not sure I'd be too happy that someone was that close to my car, but at the same time, at least he chooses cars that are old

so you wake up in the middle of the night or whenever, really, having an emergency that requires you to immediately jump in the car and drive somewhere. you'd have to deal with the cardboard that's been attached to your car just to get in, and on top of all, if you don't remove it and just start driving, you might have temperature issues because the cartboard is blocking most of the radiator. it might be for the lolz, but interacting with anyone's car without their consent is a no go if you ask me.

It’s funny as long as it never rains because masking tape is the devil to get off after it gets wet.

This would crack me up if I wasn't parked in my garage and it happened. But I don't think he'd be interested in trying to pimp a Vette, which would make me jealous and wish I had a Pinto or something to get modded. Wouldn't be mad at all since it does no damage to the car and is audacious and funny.

The spoilers throw me off though. They belong on the trunk, not the roof. I mean, there are special spoilers that are used on the back of the roof as well, especially on hatchbacks, but the ones he made aren’t that type and it bothers me as a car fanatic. 😂

Hilarious, but a weird message behind it though. All these upgrades just represent obnoxious cars and most of the time not the most pleasant owners. It's already a bit messy in Amsterdam so some cardboard when they rip it off and throw it on the side walk won't make a difference :)

What a waste of cardboard... and of people time because they are the ones who have to put it off when they go out to do something more important than losing time. And honestly, it doesn't make these cars supercars, it makes them hideous and ridiculous.

Not funny all and quite dangerous. What if someone has an emergency? They would have to either waste time fixing it or drive like and get pulled over.

Do it to your mate's car for a laugh. Do it to mine and you'd better hope I don't catch you - cars are private property, not a toy for you to mess with and possibly damage.
