Donks are a car sub-culture of large-rimmed, big-bodied American cars. They often come in gaudy or tongue-in-cheek color schemes that can go from just the paint to an entirely decked-out theme that includes the interior, exterior, rims, aura, etc. of the car.
Traditionally, donks are 1971-1976 Impalas, but any of the long, wide-bodied muscle cars of the late 60s and 1970s fits into the general idea of hi-risers, of which donks are a subgroup.
Donks aren’t for everyone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate them even if you would prefer the cars to be completely
As is the case in any car sub-culture, some donks can look absolutely hideous while others are really nicely done. Other donks seem like they were thought up by a marketing team or touched by King Midas.
We featured this donk on our recycler.com Cars Facebook page and the overwhelming sentiment was negative. While it might not be the exact car you would want or how you would choose to customize a 1968 Impala (Do two people ever customize anything exactly the same? Of course not. That’s why it’s called customization!), you can still appreciate the vehicle and the work that went into making this Impala into a donk.
