Taking shit from my friends about my mods

Just a funny story (well, it's funny to me, anyway):

My roommate drives a '98 EX 4-door. I drive a '97 EX coupe. When I first started fixing mine up last year, he liked to give me shit about being a ricer. Now, my car looks almost stock, except for rims and the tailpipe. But he had jokes about the exhaust, the header, the cai, etc. Said I was too old and too white to be fucking with a Civic.

The other day we drove down to Six Flags in New Jersey. We took his car. It was hilarious watching him try to get up to speed on the Garden State Parkway and the Turnpike. We damn near got killed a few times while his silly ass tried to get out in front of tractor trailers and shit. Next to mine, driving in his car feels like driving in a Yugo. It's hard to imagine I drove mine like that for 5 years.

Now the best part. On the drive home, he starts asking me about how much it would cost to get more horsepower out of his car. Suddenly, my car isn't so funny anymore. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a convert!

Anyone else get shit from their friends and have a good story about showing them up?

Re: Taking shit from my friends about my mods

Freefall was closed and I think the blue track on the Batman and Robin ride was closed, but otherwise everything was running and it kicked ass. We kept seeing all these Amish kids there, I guess they were getting out to see what the real world is like. They must've shit a brick on those coasters - probably never even gone 55 mph in their whole lives. ha ha ha

i went to 6 flags last week. it was hot! like kafziel said, the blue roller coaster on batman and robin was closed. it's been closed since like last year i think. im not to sure but i heard someone died on that ride so they dont run it any more. but the red one was working. freefall was opened when i went. only ride that was closed was one of the water rides, but that shit is always breaking. shit broke as we were about to get on that ride, which sucked!
word of advice, try to get yo ass down to the park as soon as they open (10:00 a.m. on weekdays) and run straight to superman. i got there at 11 and went on superman 1st. i had to wait almost 2 hours!!!! it was worth it though. the other rides we didnt have to wait too long
have fun


weird how this thread moved away from it's topic =)

Re: Taking shit from my friends about my mods

LOL yeah, we're on a bit of a tangent here...
but I will say that the Superman ride crushed the hell out of my balls.

In case anyone was interested.

Re: Re: Taking shit from my friends about my mods

would you believe i actually got shit from my friends with hondas because i have a vw? yah but i ended that quickly. even with some of their motor swaps and high comp motors, not one has been able to beat me so even if i sense they are THINKING about talking shit i ask if any of them would like to have a quick stint on the freeway. that keeps their mouths closed pretty damn well.

see people who do things to Hondas get shit because you have the FUCKATRDS that do nothing nut put body kits and HUGE wings on their cars.. This gives those who actually do things that are worthy to a car a bad name.. For example check the forum where the kid has a HUGE body kit and its unpainted and it has dual exhaust and he wants to get a front mount on his car with 19 inch rims to go with it

Re: Taking shit from my friends about my mods

Yeah, those people give us all a bad name.
No sense of priorities.
That's why I always laugh when I see someone driving a Scion; you know they bought it for the way it looks and no other reason. You never hear about their 0-60 or 1/4 mile times, top speed, handling, or even safety and durability.
Form should always follow function, and never compromise it.

Re: Taking shit from my friends about my mods

Yeah, I just meant the ones that look like rolling shoeboxes. The other ones are decent enough.

Re: Taking shit from my friends about my mods

if any of you have ever driven a Scion xB you would know that it is in fact a pretty nice car (thing?) looks are a matter of opinion. no, its not fast, but it is very practical for some uses

i get hell all the time from my buddy with a supra. he thinks any fwd is a waste of money .... guess thats why he got spanked by a turbo b16 crx twice

i just wish people saw the potential of these cars... instead of looking at the ones that are done horribly wrong
