Well, I'll post about two bad sightings, one of a bimmer, and one of course, the crap-tastic civic.

I pulled up to the post office, and saw a riced out civic parked right there, its all your typical rice, altezza taillights, giant wing, all these stickers (including some scooby doo ones), and some vinyl. First thing that pops into my mind, ricer, most likely an asian guy. (Hey, not hating here, I'm asian too, but with good taste, rare right? ) :P

uh anyway, I walk into the post office, take a look around, only asian guy I see in there, is a chinese MONK. Yes a monk, you know, robes, bald head, with the big necklace thingie.

and I thought to myself, think to myself, it can't be him...I look around further, only other people there was an old lady and some guys in suits.

Sure enough, when I got out to my car, the civic bleeps and unlocks, and the monk goes into the car!!! @!#$@!@!%@!$@!#

WHAT THE HELL HAS THIS WORLD COME TO !?!?? I think I'm going to convert to some other religion now, lol

...

and another, I saw a BMW E36...badged as a BMW 'E36'...uh...the most horrible badging ever, worse than M3 badging..?!?!?

a BMW isn't a damn mercedes AMG... E36??? cmon!!

ugh, just wanted to share that with you, anyone else have ever seen an 'E36' badged BMW? or anything similar?

Some ricers in my area have the erector set looking wing on top of a stock spoiler. There's also a riced out 325i around here

<u>1995 BMW 325is</u>

- //M3 Spoiler
- 15% Tinted Windows
- Front License Plate Delete

If I say something stupid, it's probably cause I'm ripped

That car isn't even a bmw anymore. I refuse to accept that german engineering went into THAT THING.

Sick.

I bought one of those GTR badges and plastered that bastard on the grill... I'm not any kind of poser or anything.. just thought it would be fun.. you have to see the truck to understand.... got a bumper sticker that says...

"You have to be real secure to be seen in a car like this"
oh yeah, she's a GTR all right... whatever...

p.s. do you guys know of any support groups that will help me out? "urrm, my name is Adam, and I own a POS truck" lol
