You are suppose to give everything a go at least once before you decide if you like it or not, right haha? And yes... Respect! I think it's missing more and more each day.

Alright, here's a PERFECT example of the concept we're talking about. I really think that Hellaflushed cars look really unprofessional, and a little rediculous. However, i would never walk to someone who owns one at a meet or show, and and bash them, or start an argument.

I'd try anything once.... maybe even a hellaflush car. who knows. 
I really think there are two themes that everyone in this thread is repeating over and over again in different ways. 
simply: Just because you don't like someones setup does not mean that you need to tell them about it, and its important to try and respect peoples opinions, even if they are apposed to your own. 

this was an enjoyable convo, guys. It was pretty engaging. Haha, everyone was just agreeing with each other the whole time. xD

^^^Well said! "It's my car, I build it the way I see fit for it to be built." I am a function over form guy myself but hellaflush does well on a show car. That is for sure. Haha, the guy that maintains our alignment rack is huge into diesel and American muscle. We were talking one day and got on to this subject basically, he asked what I drive, I pointed at my Talon. He then looks and says, "turbo all wheel drive, right?" I affirmed it. He just said, good man. And just because you own a certain make or madel does not mean you are that stereotype...

I grew up in Detroit. So, yes, we are a bunch of muscle car and American-made automotive fanatics. Almost every car I have owned has been a Ford, Chevy, or Dodge. My wife has a Jetta but she bought that before we met. I am still a big Saturn fan (RIP). But no matter what, every car came from something in Detroit. The entire car industry was born there. Whether it be a new Silverado, Smart Car, BMW, or Toyota, Honda, whatever; it has roots in Detroit. I think it is like being a great grandparent. You see all the your kids, their kids, and thier kids all growing up and making thier mark in the world. And even if it isn't your style or what you would have done, you still have pride.

Exactly! Yes, THANK YOU for making that point. You've obviously no experience in the car world as it stands today if you DO make those massively generalizing statements. Because while there may be a massive number of distasteful mods and cars for each stereo-type, there are JUST as many, if not more well built, fast builds. That's the foundation of my misunderstanding as to why people have such a heavy hate twords domestics, or vise-versa. It just tends to throw me off.

Nice! I can really see how a background like that could give you a sence of pride twords the beginnings of the car world.

Hell I own a DSM, I am supposed to be cheap, never keep up on maintenance, and only use ebay parts.

My town is one of the worst I have been in for stereotypes like that.

Really? I'm sorry to hear that. I've found alot of stereotypes like that in alot of ways... even in faults that ALL cars have, but only hondas are targeted because of it... It's just aggrivating. Bash me as much as you want, but V-tec Engines really aren't that bad. It helps shave off those last couple seconds from your lap times.... And if you try and do something to the extent of a burn out or pull like that in a HONDA, You've obviously bought the wrong car for the job.
