Just noticed at the end of the page: this guy dreamed of being a playboy bunny... until he dreamt up this even loftier life goal... explains a lot.

Met with the exhaust guy today and brought up this dude and his "Briata" and apparently when Ed was welding it all up the owner was jumping up and down giddy with excitement like a child.
I can just picture this 50+ year old vietnam vet bouncing around because he's getting quad tipped exhaust... excuse me, "quad-zillas" on his miata...

I can guarantee you he gets "quad tips" every night. But just the tip.

Even cr has more taste and direction than that guy. The amount and effort to make that car fills me with sadness, but at least I don't have to drive it everyday

Hahaha! So basically you guys are ranking m.net lower than cr.net when it comes to over-the-top personalization? Ahhh, I was thinking it was the other way around. My bad.

That's possibly the worst thing about it...

Scares me to think how much money he blew at JC Whitney to ***** that thing up and make it completely useless as a DD (unless he's a rural mail carrier).



EDIT: Maybe he's a rural male carrier...

While CR is mostly cookie cutter "slam on cheap suspension + sportmaxx + r-lip=all you need to do to be cool"...the m.net takes the cake on the weird **** like featuring cars with "e-superchargers" and quad exhausts among other things.
