One day I want to build something like this looks wise, then bolt on AST's, 245 Hoosiers, and turbo to troll Porsche Club of America HPDE's.

You can't hide a properly built car. It'll always look better than this if it has ANY function.

I do enjoy when a mod list contains such items as: valve cover gasket, timing belt, spark plugs, etc.

I've been trying to find some way to rationalize this, but... he really did just lift the hood and attack the whole engine bay with a rattle-can of blue spray paint, didn't he?

What. The. ****.

No, seriously; What the ****?

Do these people not have *anyone* in their lives that will intervene when they're about to do something really remarkably stupid? Like, when I was 17 and considered using foil-backed sticky letters (for mailboxes, from the hardware store) to "letter" my air-shocked and "jacked up" (in retrospect, an ironic term) AMC Javelin. Maybe it's just a Jersey thing, but it took all of about 30 seconds for several buddys to tell me it was retarded. And indeed, it was.

(Gimme a break; I was 17.)

I'm guessing several. And yes, that appears to be precisely the customizing method employed here. Given the "mods", and pricing strategy, I'm pretty confident that we're dealing with a Slow Adult here, so points for not getting it all over the body.

It's taken my eyes a few minutes to adjust to dealing with only contrast in a field of blue, but now that I have: holy ****, the intake.
