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.

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.
Originally posted by talonIV^^^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...
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.
