You're doing it wrong! AKA Rice Reports(Post autofails here!)

I saw in the other thread for a specific Rice Reports thread, so lets start one.

My best Rice Report iswhen I was at the Columbus NMRA show this May (where my Mustang won 5.0 Mustang and Super Fords magazine's Editors Choice award by the way). I noticed that almost every car form crappy old Tauruses to a couple Omni had one of those stipid foot tal alum. APC wings on it. The wings were worth more than someof these cars. There must have been a clearance sale!

LOL Last nite I pulled up along side a car that had been so heavily modified I had trouble figurin out what it was at first. when I was right next to it I figured that it was most likely a civic judging by the general shape but it was still up in the air. he revved his engine at a light so we raced him and we had to slow down after a block cause he whad dropped so for back we thought he stalled. we got him side by side again and he tried to go for it and again we burned him inside of a block. all that bondo musta been slowin him down.

already posted this but i saw a dodge neon wiht 5 different colors on it.. 4 for each body kit part, and the last color for the body. btw NO HOOD AT ALL... man... i almost needed to pull over to die laughing

it also had a cut off muffler with a crappy tip on it... so go unhook your exhaust and thats what it sounded like... it was WONDERFUL.... bet he could take on a rx7 TT or something cuz of that exhaust

Last night I saw a a local Sunfire with blue Z3 fenders, a white front airdam, blue rear spliiter, black soors and hood on a green body. Oh yea, it had duals with APC (Advance Auto Parts specials) mufflers, and factory black steel wheels. The guy said he is still working on it (everything is from a diff. manufacturer and all the ground effects are cracked), but it had been about like that for two years now. I'll try to get a picture next time I see it...

ZX3_Chick,

Your are right, I stole Aaron's idea, but I just did it because it seemed like a fun post. Sorry Aaron, I hope it is okay!

OK, I don't want to sound bad at all or anything but I have a tenzo racing wing on my Foci and it looks very good actually.

http://www.carxpressions.com/exterior/wings.htm

The wing is the silver/black aluminum racing wing with circuit style brackets. I don't want to sound like a sore thumb but some cars look good with it, but when you put a high rise wing on your car with the stock wing still installed, (SEEN IT ON SEVERAL SUNFIRES) it looks rather bad, but if you redo your trunk and make it look stock then it really looks good.

When I get pictures of my foci, I will post a picture and have you all vote on a poll how it looks.
