Bigger isn't always better but someone forgot to tell these guys that.

A rear spoiler can be a cool addition to any car, if it isn't godawful.

Certain manufacturers have produced classic examples of this but nothing as bad as what these motorists have attached to their cars. 

5. Two-by-four wood spoiler

A spoiler can be an expensive addition for a car but when people really want that extra downforce they will go to any lengths to get it.

Appeared to be slapped together by someone’s tradie mate after a quick trip to Bunnings, this wood spoiler would probably begin to rot after a passing shower.

4. Five-tier spoiler

Remember the character from the first Cars movie, called Wingo? 

The name might not ring a bell but once you see his massive spoiler you’ll know who I'm talking about and apparently the car exists in real life.

3. Whale tail spoiler

Everyone knows the iconic 'whale tail' spoiler fitted from the Porsche 911 and the Cosworth Fords.

The owner of this Volkswagen Beetle thought that it wasn't truely representative of the name and went about creating this eyesore.

2. Lego spoiler

The spoiler designed and built by kids!

Children love doing things for their parents and obviously thought that their dad's boring Toyota Corolla could use an exciting rear wing made out Lego.  

The toy which can be made into literally anything.

1. Ironing board spoiler

Say it's Sunday and you want to go for a drive but you also need to finish some ironing before working week starts, well this Corvette has it covered.

Sporty and practical, what more could you ask for?
