In the end he got a fast car out of it that made him famous on one of the most known roads in CA and he had fun doing so.
so what you're saying is

- making a car good looking on purpose is cookie cutter

- making a car ugly looking on purpose is NOT cookie cutter

Correct?

Do you see where I'm going with this?

That sums it up. I think the swap is cool, I like old RX7's, I like V8's. I definitely think the owner is cooler than that bald host guy. He really annoys me.

Lol that's cause we drive miatas . The only thing that's try hard is the speedo, volvo oil cooler from the junkyard and the wood. Other than that the car looked like that when he found it in a barn.....with bullet holes in the front fender.

Right, but it doesn't make it good either. See: cr.net

I don't see this as any different than the stanced hellaflush bullshit. He put his oil cooler outside the hood for the same reason those retards keep their roof rack on their VW. That's fine, he can do whatever he wants. That doesn't mean I have to like it.

Of course i do, and you are right just as much as you are wrong. Sure it was made to look....well not very pleasing but hey! if you were to get a ride in it you would think that the look really suits the way it makes you feel..not ugly hahah just ******* scary.

There is a very obvious difference between this and the herrafrush BS.

Those losers ACTUALLY THINK THEIR CAR LOOKS COOL.

This car is a joke, albeit one that goes very fast and sounds amazing and, on a different level from the joke, is very very cool. This is unique.

You're right that you don't have to like it. I don't like it. but this is nothing like those homos that stick big wings on civics or camber their tires out, because they actually think they're cool, whereas this kid is just having fun and poking fun, and in the end actually ends up with something that is pretty cool -- a beastly V8 in a small, light car.

Personally the car has a mad max feel to me and it is growing on me. I would not want to daily it but for a fun car I see no issue here.

I throw him in the same boat as these idiots. Intentionally ruining a car because it's cool make no sense. I am a firm believer that just because it's different that doesn't make it cool.

I want my car to stand out and be different. I'll do something no one in their right mind will do and F up my car. Damn now everyone does it and I'm not cool anymore. Stupidity escalates.

Wouldn't you say that's a bit try hard^^ going this far to find a pun?

He obviously doesn't care for the money or else he wouldn't clearly say that he doesn't expect people to think the car is worth more than 2 grand. People at least know who he is in the real world. You are a guy on a forum that makes informative posts....sometimes.

Your comparison still doesn't make any sense. That BMW wasn't found in a barn or a ditch, and there's nothing cool underneath (most likely). Someone just got a stupid idea to make the hood look rusty on an otherwise slick car.

it's just not even in the same realm. Y'all are being dumb.

He obviously lives with his parents still if he spends all his money from his job into that attention whoring POS.


That's all he is, an attention *****.

And who are you, with a poopra? I mean seriously? The kid is 19. he built a darn quick RX-7 that looks like crap, in spots intentionally, and it's a joke combined with a scary fast ride.

I would think that of anyone, MT.netters would enjoy this, get a LAUGH, recognize it'd be fun to drive but that none of us would do it, and move on.

Does someone need a kiss from their Mum?

lol he is 19 and going to school and working. Obviously he lives at home and he is enjoying it while he can. This car wasn't made to be an attention ***** but i think he realized that it would be easy to do with 3 little items..so he did and made u mad in the process.

At 19 I kinda riced out my miata (then got wise with the spoiler), but it was still a 176hp turbocharged automatic miata with functioning gauges for proper car management, same colored body panels. Nothing like an automatic miata with a surprise under the hood. Better than being that guy with the pos at the intersection screaming "HEY!!! LOOK AT ME, RIGHT HERE, I DONT CARE IF YOU HATE, I JUST WANT YOUR ATTENTION!!"


He doesnt care about speed or performance anymore, he is all about the one trick pony comedic joke.


And my supra is clean.
