Talking what where they thinking

I was driving around last nigh b/c it was nice. ANyway i pull into a local hang out and there's this 1980 something toyota with 18's crome rims. I was like hum.... So i get out of my car (had friend near by) walk up to his car and he's got 2 tv's in the head rests and a flip out unit on the dash.. Personally if my car was only worth like 500 bucks i wouldn't spend that much money or mods. I thought i would share!

Yeah strange why some people do that. I always assume the STOLE the stuff since they can't afford a decent car yet they can afford $2000 rims and $1000 Dual TV's etc.....

I don't understand the ricer crowd.

Their front wheel drive cars have huge wings on the trunk (for downforce... if only their cars could actually get to speeds where they are needed... and it's wrong wheel drive to begin with), nice 17's in back and 14" steelies up front (why? can't afford 4?), big pumpkin launcher out back (horsepower gained is proportional to the diameter and loudness of the exhaust), unpainted body kit (once again, too cheap to get it painted?), and fake BOV (I heard one the other day when filling up, guy was driving normal... baaaaaaa, PSSSSSSSSH, baaaaaaa, PSSSSSSSSH... sounded hideous... probably would have sounded ok if he redlined. I wanted to find him and race BADLY!).

Well, that's my gripe about ricers... wait, one more. Why is it that the drivers in cars with loud bass are leaning on the center console? I dunno...

Lots of weirdos on the street, ya know?

Nah, it isn't that they stole the stuff. They simply had a choice, buy a quility car with no cash available to mod. Or buy a cheap unreliable car and mod that.

That's why I got a Focus...

Well, having a warranty, lower payment, better MPG, and a fun vehicle (though my truck was fun too) had something to do with it too.
