    I think its tacky as fuck. buick does it to fucking hell on their cars. However on ever single car I've seen recently has chrome around the windows for some reason, and I don't know why.

    same with the chrome on my '59 Edsel Ranger

    my current truck doesn't have much chrome on it

    Depends on the car. Chrome suits some older ones; even my '88 Ford.

    On anything new, not so much.

    if the chrome is on an older car (like 25+ years old) then I'm fine with it. Anything else I think it looks like ass.

    I hate chrome. It is a huge negative when shopping around for new vehicles. A vehicle has to really stand out in other areas to overcome it.
