HawFlake is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
I was out to a strip mall over the weekend with the missus and it being a typically crowded sunday afternoon.
After parking toward the rear away from everyone else (as I always do to keep others from denting and scratching my car), we started walking toward the stores, and this heavily riced out car ripped around us as we were walking going at least a very unsafely fast speed in a parking lot, going for an empty space toward the front, revving up as loud as he could. I have a pretty decent car knowledge and I am ashamed to say, this one was riced so much and debadged, I couldn't tell what kind of car it is. And here comes the funny part, the next thing everyone around heard was this low crack sound, as his front bumper completely bottomed out on one of those (a strip of curb), as he panickly backed out and got out of car to check it out, we also got close enough for a quick peak, the bumper was barely hanging on by a few plastic screws and dragging on the ground. I tried to be polite and not look too much, but as we walked away, I couldn't help but started laughing a little.
I wish I had a few pictures to share...

Yeah. He did that with +471956478 horsepower.
People should at least KNOW their car if they're going to mod it.


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...
