Uhm, so, uh, other than looking like his car was in a really bad accident and his wheels are about to fall off, what does a harsh camber like that actually do? Or supposed to do?
Logically, my brain says it'd help with stablility and handling, but the other part of my brain says that the difference between the front and rear wheels would be more of a detriment than the extra purchase from the rear camber would be a benefit.

It does nothing except for allow wheels too big/aggressive for the car to fit.

I remember the first time I saw my '76 Bug up on a rack, and it looked kind of like that, and I thought, oh god, what's wrong with my car?!

(I know I'm not the most knowledgeable about cars, but it was my first car, so hush)

someone correct me if I'm wrong, but rear camber like that usually comes from lowering the car a whole lot and not having any way to adjust the camber in the back from the factory.

yeah he lowered his car and didn't put adjustable ball joints or adjustable control arms on it. but even if he did adjust the camber, the rear wheels would rub the fender really bad. he would have to raise the car back up and adjust accordingly to get those wheels to fit.
