Well, we all know that the truth comes from the mouth of babes...So

Example 1)
Those that know us have seen the 96 beater escort we bought for cheap this summer. Carol drives it to work most days. It has a bad syncro in first gear. The other day she misses first coming down to a light, and on leaving it pops out of gear .

Kerrin( my daughter) : " Mom, you"re not double clutching it like you should."

Mom: Immediate laughter

Cody ( our son) : You are granny shifting, ...shift like a ricer...

Mom: And how is that Cody?

Cody: Like Ken does !!!!!

BUSTED !!!!!![bash] .... Now this is just a few weeks after my son has ridden with Ken for the first time in his car. Cody loves to ride with our friends ( makes him part of the crew); but he has never said this before.

This was all related to me second hand by my wife last night.

So....example #2..

I am taking my Daughter to ballet class tonight. We get to the bottom of our road, and as it often is at 4:30 . TRAFFIC SUCKS!!!!...The holes to jump into traffic are small so I rev the car up a few times...Ricer style, trying to be funny. I feel the stare that only an 11 year old ( going on 15) can give. So I look over to her and say.

Dad : " I'm just trying to be a ricer"

Kerrin : " You mean like Mr. Ken?"

Dad : I smile and say, " Yeah, like Ken"

Kerrin: " Well Dad, you are gonna have to try pretty hard to be as ricer as Mr. Ken"

Ladies and gentleman of the jury....I rest my case.

lol, yeah the scoop has definitely gotta go! That was a halloween prank a few of my friends pulled on me after I coated John's car in sticky pads! lol

I'm scared to pull it off cause it might pull the paint with it. They did use the really good adhesives that pretty much take a cutting torch to get off, but I'm on the hunt for a CF hood, in which case it won't matter.

Speaking of which, does anyone have any idea where I can find a CF hood for the 05-07 model?

Ricer enuff to buy a new shift knob for the Fofo that lights up, and no this is not something you can pick up at your local pepboys or Advanced Auto. It's definitely TRILLA, I should have it for the Sonic Meet on Saturday hopefully [thumb]

^^^^ See?...Thats the difference, I have looked at lighted shift knobs before, but I have never gone there. Resist the dark side...

.......Okay, if we all like it , it can stay, but if EVERYONE over the age of 25 says its "ricer" it comes off!!!

^^^ There is ONLY 2 shift knobs that were lit that were ever cool...

Part of it I think is just age, you guys were weaned on F&F so you can't help yourselves![giggle]
