    It's a little early in the week to be cruising Craigslist for your next illicit car fling--or is it? We won't judge, but we will go bro-to-bro to steer you clear of this 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible, donked out for the player with $20,000 in cash. Here's how homebrewed cars go wrong, quickly. This once-classic Olds has been dipped in enough two-tone burgundy and yellow paint to be admitted to Florida State University's honors program. Worse, the Cutlass' 24-inch DUB spinners also are painted yellow, which makes them look like the 99-cent paper plates now festooning Dollar General's...
