Ewwwww.... That is disf$#kinggusting. I have a right to a strongly held opinion. My home is on Hilton Head Island, SC, and we locals regularly see genuine American alligators in and around our many lagoons. We personally have a home facing on a lagoon, and have often found gators sunning themselves in our back yard. Alligator and crocodile skins are beautiful, in their place. That place is not on a BMW sedan. I am surprised that Latvians even know what a crocodile is.

You know what'd be so hot? If they put the alligator's teeth where the grille is! Yeah, sign me up! Then it would match my alligator belt with the teeth on the buckle. The complete chick magnet!

..

An alligator has 80 teeth, all of them pointy, none of them molars. If I knew a chick was turned on by THAT, I would not let her lips anywhere near any part of my anatomy.

It's Soooo, You!

Personally, I think the final touch would be green LED angel eyes.

I'm sensing a mixed message here.

Where can I get green angel eyes? Do you find them intriguing?

When I first saw the title of this thread, I was picturing it on the interior of the car. Which in my head actually looked kinda slick.

That being said...this doesn't look slick. I like the idea, but the execution just doesnt come out as good as it sounds on paper. It looks too much like a purse on wheels....

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”
