  • OT: damn teenagers and thier cars

    "Why are people so obsessed with making their cars look like they're faster than they really are? It's not just Civic owners, it's people with Neons and Hyundais too. They go all out and buy new rims, tint their windows, add fins, paint stripes on their car... why? It's old. You drive a shitty car, deal with it. Mitsubishi Eclipse owners are some of the worst offenders. What's the point of dumping all this cash into modifications when it won't significantly change the performance of your vehicle?

    It's ironic that with all the money that these morons dump into modification, they could have saved up and bought a real sports car in a couple of years instead of pretending like they drive one now. It doesn't matter how big your fins are, it doesn't matter how cool your rims look, it doesn't matter how much noise your muffler makes. You still drive a shitty car. Period. End of story.

    The other day I pulled up next to some jackass in an intersection. He started to rev up his engine and roll back and forth. I turned my head towards him, glanced at his car, glanced at him, rolled my eyes and turned back to the road. This pissed off the driver and as soon as the light turned green, he went peeling off. Way to go jackass. Now what did he prove? A) That his car is so fast and powerful, that he can even beat people who aren't racing him. B) That he's a wise investor for buying those rims, because the ones he had just weren't cutting it. C) Those stripes on his car look sharp and hide the fact that it's still just a Civic or D) That he's a dipshit.

    Why didn't I race him? Because I don't drive a sports car and I know it. I could pretend I drive a sports car, just like anyone else. I could put giant fins on my car and pretend it's a jet or whatever the hell they think putting huge fins on a car accomplishes. Or I could quit pretending and just drive my damn car to work and school. Watching people race in Civics is like watching people race in minivans. I suppose the competition is there, but it's anti-climactic, like watching two geriatrics playing golf. It's a race where even if you win, you lose.

    What's the point of having a fast car anyway? Is there some legal speed that they're trying to reach that they can't seem to do with normal cars? Even if your car can go more than 200 mph, you have to break the law (more often than not) to do so. Way to go dipshit, you spent your life savings on something you can't use. Worthless.

    people modified their cars in hopes of making it look unlike the cheap piece of shit that it is."


    any opinions? i agree with this all the way

    LOL DP! Here is a link to my car. I don't race it and act cool like the person in your scenario. My car is too low to race, however I do show it at car shows. My style of customizing is different than the "racers scene." The next time you're at the bookstore checkout "Minitruckin" magazine. That is my style of customization. There are some really cool looking cars/trucks out there.

      The reason people upgrade old cars is so they can do wicked stuff with them (the car is old remember)? Some friends go rallying in the forrests every now and then, and sometimes they participate in streetraces... even though they don't stand a chance.

      I don't think anyone would do that to a brandnew car...

        Yes there is allot of rice out there. And they are ruining the rep of allot of cars and people the do real mods to those cars. Being an eclipse owner my self(1990 GS) I find it down right sad what some people end up doing to some of them (Then agian Mitsubishi didn't help by dropping there top of the line Turbo Charged AWD GSX either)

        Is my car a fast drag car? no. Is it quick fun to drive sports coupe though? Yes and like that. Do I pretend it's fast? No because it's just not cool

        People that spend big bucks on sports cars do so because they like to drive. You don't buy a 350Z to pick the kids up from school. You buy one so you can have a fun responsive driving experince

        And I personally am not a fan of the soild debadged look :\. It's slick but boring imo

          Okay, I don't care about racing but my dream is too take a 50's classic car and fix it up really nicely. Something from the 40's or 60's may work too.

            You know DP, I thought you actually wrote that, but it turns out you only wrote one line. How disappointing.

                I think if the car looks bad then that's y ppl paint them up- or to cover the holes (ive seen a ford escort with its petrol tank nearly grinding along the road :grin: ) But hey! i'm a teenager and I would never change my car to make it look different- it's gr8 looking anyway and it's 39 years old 8) Road Tax Exempt-muahahahhaah

                    Actually, the surprising lack of spelling and grammar errors gave it away.

                      Pfft. I drive a big ol' lumbering station wagon. Nice practical car. I've fit an entire bunkbed in the back of it with the hatch closed.

                      When I want to go fast, I have a motorcycle.

                          While most of those people with "rice rockets" are just driving stock cars with spoilers taped to the back, some of them really DO have cars with heavily modified engine and transmission components, and they really DO go fast.

                          On the other hand, my Chevy Prizm does not go very fast.

                            VROOOOOOM.

                            (Yes, that is my car. A 1991 Mazda 626, about 220.000 kilometers, unmodified except from a load of ugly fixes to minor problems. I even managed to take a picture of a side of the car without dents. It may be a piece of scrap metal, but it's MY piece of scrap metal. )
