Default Should check out this, pretty funny!

Alright so one of my friends I go to school with is a tuner guy. Very into the import cars, and drifting. He despises my car for the fact that its a V8 powerhouse, and claims its a horrible handling piece of American junk. I always nod my head and pretend I'm listening, but recently he photo shopped a photo of my car to show me what it's "supposed" to look like. I quote "This is how low your car should be. Sadly, your car isn't this low. But, if it was, this is how it would look." I almost fell out of my chair laughing, and figured I would share the piece that made my day, with some enthusiast friends of mine!

Before with how my car looks:

After, with what its "supposed" to look like:

Personally I'd go a little lower and a little bigger on the wheels, tow hook, fart kazoo, LOTS more stickers...where do these people come from and why are there so many?

no replacement for displacement. no comparison of a v8 muscle car and a rice burner. MUSCLE doesn't grow with rice.

I hate that kind of ricer. Good on you for not punching him in the mouth yet. Driving a fast import is like coming out of the closet.. suprises the sh*t out of everyone but at the end of the day your still gay.

Jealousy is not a good thing. He'll be driving American muscle within 2 years.

A little lower on the TA's would be nice, but I'd use a smaller rim and tire on the front. It still needs to turn. That just doesn't look right.

I like you side art.

Perhaps he likes hitting his *** on every bump in the road! At 1.5" lowered I have to pick which driveways I am willing to attempt, that PS is 2.5" down in the front, better not have any pine cones in the road at that ride height.
