    CopcarFC, you're reading what you want into what I said. I would advise you to read my entire post. If you do you'll see what I said. I'll dissect it here for you so there will be no further misunderstandings.

    Nowhere in there did I say ALL modifications. What this line means is that some of the modifications I have seen caused me to think they owner of the car is an idiot. It does not mean that I think anybody who has ever modified their car is an idiot.

    I saw a truck yesterday, the front tires were normal, but the back was so low the bumper was dragging the ground.
    Those are two examples of the modifications that I do believe are the same thing as a person putting a flashy neon sign on their car that says "Owner is an idiot"

    After those two examples I said

    If you'll notice the words "any of those things" more important look at the word "those". Since I added the word "those" it makes this statement refer to the paragraph before it. So in simple terms this statement means that I think people who put the giant rims and lower their cars so low it drags the ground are just following fads. No where in in any of my posts do I say all people that have a modification on their car is and idiot. If I did please post it in your next response.

    Believe it or not, I have some modifications on my truck.





    Please note the aftermarket side mirrors, rollbars, and bumpers. Also notice the flag and what I'm most proud of is the window AC.

    You can't see it in these pics but I have a bumper sticker on the back that say "Trendy people sucks"

    And believe it or not but this truck sold for $10,100.

    are you implying that only males would modify a car? this is absolutely wrong. no doubt about it...

    I know that girls mod their cars too, but you have to admit that at least 90% are male.

    yep, sorry to say that modifying cars is mostly a "male" thing. it was implied that it is a 100% male thing. wasn't directed at you either way.

    keep in mind that the original car in question is simply an early 90's honda accord with a set of aftermarket rims and tires on it, and up to this point, there is no indication that there are any other aftermarket parts on it. aftermarket rims and tires do not equal a vehicle that was absolutely abused. now, if you pop the hood on this accord, and find an H22 stuffed in there, i would bet money that it was at least raced occaisionally (and yes, i know that only a few people on here will understand that comment, and what an "H22" is).

    i want to see some picts of the rx7 race cars? fc's? fd's?

    Alright Oz, I'm really not the type to drag out an agrument so I'll just say this and leave it at that.

    Go back and read your 3rd post. You heavily implied that anyone who mods their car is just following fads and they are idiots. I was just letting you know there are exceptions.

    Tech: There is kinda a pic of one of my RX7's in my profile. It's dark out so maybe I will take some tommarow. Right now I have one FB, two FC's, and one FD.

    nepenthes_ak: Of those cars I would definatly stick with the Probe. Those things are really cheap to fix and last. It also looks the best.

    Oz: There is no way in hell that truck sold for 10k+. I gotta see proof of that. If it did sell for that much then the buyer is more of an idiot that the guys putting 38" rims on a caprice. Either that or you have a serious beast of an engine under that hood (twin turbo LS1? Hemi? Northstar?)
    My life sucks

    I heavily implied that people who do modification just to get draw attention to themselves are following fads. I didn't say or imply that all modifications are just to be cool.
    We'll leave it at that.

    Now about the truck. Let's put a pft plant on this. If I can prove to you that this truck sold for $10,100.00 you buy a plant of my choice and put it up for auction in the upcoming NASC auction. If not I'll buy you a plant of your choice. Remember the plant has to be from PFT. That way the winner won't be able to choose a 2 or 3 hundred plant. Deal?
