That or a shack of a house too. On a different note some of my freinds have way to much money in their house.

For the people that say it isn't worth it= It gives some guys something to do & keeps them out of trouble whether from the law, wife, GF, or drugs, out of bars.

it's not worth it. as fun as it is you're never trully happy with the way your car is. you can spend as much money you can on a part, enjoy it, and then get bored with it, making you want new thing for your car. for the enjoyment, yes. for the price, no. if you truly want a mod that will make you happy every time you jump in your car, buy a manual.

I will never modify my Saleen. Bone stock is the way it belongs.

That being said, my Ranger and ZX4 have all been tastefully upgraded. Hard for me to drive commonplace appearance.

Of course it's worth it. You mod your car and it's yours. It's not the exact same as the thousands of others out there. Your own identity on your own car. Plus its fun to wrench on a car for hours and spend a day just mulling it over and tweaking things.
