You're Doing It Right (post autowins here!!!)

theirs a thread about "you're doing it wrong!" how about "you're doing it right, thread?"
ill start


i havent touched it and i havent done modded it yet, and besides im not doing it wrong cause its a focuc lol :D this is an old pic though :(

i agree with some rules woud be good, not a lot of them though. like 1 or 2.

1: it can be your car modded or not, or a car that you've seen and took a picture of that looks like it was done right!

2: it cannot be an autofail it has to be an autowin!
"also their is a difference between a very unique car, like custom made like a concept car and normal dd thats been slightly moddified"

There is no such thing as 'right'.
In some minds your car isn't because it is stock. In others mine are wrong because they are modified.
No matter what you can't win. It's just the fickle nature of people and their desire to nit-pick everything that isn't theirs.

The only thing that will ever mater is if you're happy. If you are then no opinion of anyone else will matter. They will be wrong simply for the fact they are not you.



So was someone murdered at the house next door?

Haha at the "murder" next door.

I saw a beautiful Saturn Ion Red Line. I'm not a fan at all of any Saturn's but this one was red with black wheels and lowered just right. I wish I could have gotten a picture but I don't carry a camera with me.

You're = You Are [bootyshak

Haha, anyway here's my twilight blue SVTF... errr I mean ZX3 with SVTF front bumper and suspension kit. Never got around to pulling the ugly pinstripes off, but aside from that it was perfect to me.



Unfortunately I had to trade her back in '08 to put a down payment on my Rabbit. Wish I could find it and buy it back as a second car. Sure could use the better fuel economy.

100% agreed. You get more attached to your car when you work on everything yourself. I bought a more expensive, faster, and better handling brand new car... but almost everything has been kept stock. I love it to death but I still miss my ZX3 sometimes.

SVTF suspension upgrade was the best thing I ever did to it. It just felt like a whole different car with the way it cornered so tightly. The fog lights were also way better than the crappy stock ones. I hope the new owner is having as much fun with it as I did.
