Why would anyone make a fake Raptor?



Now I think there's a difference between a replica and something that's totally fake, like this truck. There are a couple of replicas that I'd like to own, if only because the originals cost way into the millions. That said, I've never understood the person who could drive something like this Raptor around... The people who know anything about trucks will know it's a fake, and nobody else would care? At least that's why I think...

Very odd.

Just like you say, "The people who know anything about trucks will know it's a fake, and nobody else would care?"

So who are they looking to impress? What person is going to be impressed by this?

Seems like it is entirely pointless... unless the driver is just a big fan of dinosaurs.

Ha ha. It's entirely possible the person who bought this truck is just entirely clueless about what a Raptor is?

Have you considered that someone could really like the looks of a Raptor but have no interest in going off road?

Honestly, I hadn't. But that's certainly a possibility too...

Raptor wheels



I put 14 Raptor wheels on my 04 does that count lol? I' trying to find the right size center caps that just say Ford or F150 instead of the SVT ones I currently have just because I only want to bring a small amount of fake to my ride !!

Whatever floats your boat is what I say.. Someone willing to drive it and pay whatever they pay for it, well, there you go..

I hate those way over off set wheels and the tires sticking out like that, not to mention the whole black out theme, which I detest as well...

Ugh overall for me..

Some 20 something guy with lots of cash... Sure, they will buy it in a heart beat! ha, ha!
