thats funny, i think that he is trying to take off, w/ the ground clearance and that wing :)

after reading this thread, i realized i see ALOT of ricers each day :)
i saw like 4 on the way to and from school today, each direction.

3 civics
1 thing, not quite sure what it was, could have been a protege or something else, either way it had a body kit, stock wheels, yellow, and black racing stripes hood to trunk....
and the kicker,

a mid 90's looking nissan truck, little thing, with a fart cannon sticking straight out from under the rear bumper about 1 foot. wish i got a pick..

The thing about a lot of the ricemobiles I see is it seems like they actually at one time had some kind of solid plan for the car. Then it seems like they just eventually started body slamming the car over speed bumps in the Walmart parking lot on their way to get the new magnetic fender vents that just got released and busting up the body kit so they add a wing to take your eye away from that.

They probably ran out of money, hit hard times either financially, emotionally, or both, and just gave up caring about it... You know how when you get new shoes that you love if you even brush up against something you freak out, but then after a while you get a scratch and you freak out a little but not as much, then again and a little less till eventually you just accept it... nothing last forever and we are all going to die someday... Too far?
Anyway, that's what I think happens.

Have to try and get a picture of this mustang around here... it's a '99 -2000 ish cobra ( Before the retro body change ) Well, the front end has been chopped and hacked to look like a "67 Shelby 427 Cobra... Yeah... Rather disappointing when you see it drive bye.

I guess shoes and my car are two totally different things to me. Shoes are $50, a car is wayyyyy more. And personally the car in my driveway has always been my pride and joy. Even if they can't afford to keep "modding" it they should at least maintain the thing.

Man I will never forget this..

'Twas driving at 3 am here in HOUSTON Texas.. taking my drunk friend home..

Going doing 610 and I make the wrong exit..

So I say no big deal.. what's the worst that can happen? I get killed? shoottt

So I drive up to this stop light when I see a car chillin there with his exhaust making a note that made him sound like he was actually moving

it had this hideous body kit that wasn't even painted nor primered..

just installed LOL

the car was black and body kit was green

I saw it from a distance it looked like an Eclipse...

it had the stupidest spoiler ever that me a fat dude could fit through with DUAL fart cannons

Drove up next to it in my focus for a race


Turns out it was Mustang GT

LMAO!
