Is it just me or do these things just look evil? And yes, I own 2 of them.

the camera angle/distance/black&white makes it looks sinister though, but taking a photo with those specs would do that to most any gun :)

Evil maybe. Cold and heartless. YES

maybe it wouldn't look so evil with some nice wood grips on it?

Yes, it looks a bit evil to me, because it makes me think: "Nazi Jew-killer"
It has nothing to do with the actual gun.

I would not lend any money to this pistol for fear it defaulting on the loan.

Evil ~ NO ~ Now that's funny.
Walther's make people do evil things like Chevy's make drunk drivers.
Classic Walther. A design that has been copied and has withstood the test of time. I been shooting the Walther PP series pistols for over 30 years. My EDC is a Manurhin PP in 32 ACP. I acquired a P1 about a year ago and it has become a favorite at the range and when I want a larger carry gun.
Mine was a good 99% condition when I got it. It has the hex bolt and fat slide upgrades. The guy I bought it from said he shot golf balls with it at 15 yards??? Sounded kind of like an expensive target ~ but to each his on. My first trip to the range and I was sold. It truly is one of the most accurate guns I own. Function has been flawless.
AIM has a new shipment of these guns in. A co-worker just got one hand picked and delivered for $358. Not a bad investment ~ a piece of history and a classic shooter.
