The other day, I got an email from Brian, my mild-mannered executive editor here at Oversteer. He sometimes sends me ideas for posts. This time, when he emailed me, he said I should do a post on what happens when you type "the sickest," followed by a car name, into Google Images.
Now, I was very busy when this email came in, but the mere idea caused me to burst out laughing and immediately devote the next 20 minutes to learning exactly what cars the Internet considers "the sickest." And now, I will share this knowledge with you. Here are a few of the sickest vehicles on Google. I strongly suspect some of you will not agree that they are, in fact, the sickest examples of their model. According to Google, however, you are wrong.
The Sickest Ford Probe
The sickest Ford Probe on the Internet, courtesy of PinThisCars.com, is this 1990s example that appears to have been spray-painted blue. It features pop-up headlights that don’t really close, a rather offensive body kit, a poorly fitting aftermarket hood (complete with a non-functional hood scoop) and some surprisingly acceptable wheels.

The Sickest Honda Accord
The sickest Honda Accord comes to us from Flickr, where it was apparently posted to show off its wheels. I have to admit that this one is fairly well-modified — if you’re into that kind of thing. This is a bit of a surprise to me, because it has a New Jersey license plate. When you hear "New Jersey" and "sickest Accord," you think, "There’s no way this thing won’t have scissor doors." Instead, it’s fairly restrained, with a nice, tasteful body kit, a clean look and some other acceptable modifications, all on a vehicle that was probably initially owned by a staff accountant for a company that sells pens.

The Sickest Honda Civic
Courtesy of Honda Civic enthusiast site ek9.org, here’s the Sickest Civic on the Internet. A mid-1990s hatchback version, the Civic was actually modified fairly professionally, with decent paint and good-fitting panels. The problem, unfortunately, is the chosen modifications. They are horrible. That bumper. That wing. Those side skirts. The intentionally crooked license plate. It almost seems to highlight the fact that this thing is from Wisconsin, where there isn’t much else to do aside from create the sickest Civic on the Internet. Find a Honda Civic for sale
The Sickest Jeep
There’s no way around it: This is the sickest Jeep on the Internet. Hailing from Pinterest, of all places, this Jeep has no doors, giant wheels, a strange orange paint job, a huge LED light mounted on the roof and enough off-road accessories to single-handedly conquer Brazil. Based on the background and, well, the Jeep, I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess this thing is located in Florida. Where else would you expect to find the sickest Jeep on the Internet?

The Sickest Mitsubishi Eclipse
Although I’m not usually a fan of modified cars, I must admit this second-generation Mitsubishi Eclipse — the sickest one on the Internet — is pretty cool. Courtesy of DSMTalk.com, it’s fairly tasteful (save for the odd window decals) and includes reasonable modifications that are well-painted, well-executed and correctly fitting. I don’t even mind the wheels. Good going, sickest Eclipse. Find a Mitsubishi Eclipse for sale
The Sickest Nissan GT-R
The Nissan GT-R is known for amazing performance, perfect balance and tremendous on-track capabilities right from the factory. This person — creator of the sickest Nissan GT-R on the Internet, courtesy of Pinterest — has destroyed all those things. Behold, an incredible amount of stance, a ground clearance of approximately one regulation fingernail and… that bodykit. This is exactly what I was expecting when I started Googling the "sickest" versions of various automobiles. Find a Nissan GT-R for sale
The Sickest Volkswagen Jetta
You can’t talk about the sickest cars without talking about the Volkswagen Jetta. And so, here it is, the sickest Jetta on the Internet. When I initially Googled "sickest Jetta," I thought two things would happen. One, the first result would have pink wheels and a rear half made entirely out of Bondo. And two, I would begin receiving leaflets in the mail from vape supply stores. But I’m officially leaflet-free, and I’m surprised to admit I love this Jetta. While the previous ones are debatable, I’d say that this is, in fact, the sickest Jetta on the Internet. Find a Volkswagen Jetta for sale
