I'll go even further and say, I don't get why people own cars. The only two (three) vehicles I can justify buying are motorcycles for their fuel efficiency and Trucks/SUVs for their utility and ability to not shit them selves at bad weather or a little dirt.

Everything else, I just don't get.

I guess there is the exception, I've always wanted to buy one of those tiny eco cars and put a train horn in it


Pretty much why I got a Chevy Nox. That and I like the digital display in Chevy vehicles, and it's MPG is pretty nice.

I'd never buy a motorcycle though. Too easy to get splattered on. People (myself included) just do not noticed them. Twice I've almost smacked a motorcyclist because somehow I almost didn't notice them. I'm super paranoid about bikers now because of that.

Also, if you go around on a motorcycle without anything bright and/or reflective on at night or when the light is minimal?

Fuck you. Seriously, that shit is not cool. You want to ride without a helmet? Whatever, wear a reflective vest or something! I'll give you one of my PT belts even.

I've like Mustangs every since I was a kid, before I was thinking about getting laid. 8-) I just like them. And for at least the past ten years or so, five star crash rating.

I see all brands lifted around here. I even see F-250s lifted and those are already high enough. :lol:

Lifted is the shit though!
Often times IMO, looks better than dropping them on their nuts (except Dually, you ever seen a Dually dropped on air bags? Instant cream LoL)

My pops had a Lifted '99 GMC Suburban 2500 when I was a youngin'
He also had a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban dropped to the floor w/ 24" rims
Ahh.. Suburbans.. soooo cool

BTW, I'm curious.. there are some weird things that go on here in Cali, curious what interesting and/or lame ass shit y'all deal with regarding aftermarket car parts and customization

Big thing out here right now is
Dropping LS V8's in Nissan 240SX's

Dropping Skyline GTR/GTR motors in anything it fits in

Infiniti G35 & G37's w/ GTR Body kits

BMW's w/ Fake Euro Plates behind California plates (soo fucking lammmeee)

"Butterflying" which is just way too much camber resulting in BTTF II Time Machine look

Shoddy HID's.. talkin' ultrabrite, ugly af, High Intensity headlamps in different colors

Fake Carbon Fiber -_-

Yeah, those as well. I see a few Chevy trucks as well lifted, it's just stupid. Best part is when I talk to them.

me: "So why the lift kit?"
redneck: "It's fo muddin!"
me : looks at truck
me: notices still flawless and shiny paint job
me: "I bet..."

So many of them are totally fill of shit. A truck you go mudding in doesn't look like you just drove it straight out of the detail shop. Been around enough guys from the Deep South that I know what it will look like.

It doesn't bother me, it does require you to pay a bit more attention riding a motorcycle though but that juicy fuel efficiency.

I think the problem goes away as you head out west, motorcycles are way more common out there I hear.

I'm not saying to drop them down either, just leave them stock. :P I see people putting huge lifts on work trucks. That's the stupid shit I see. If you're seriously using it to go play around and offroading and whatnot, then okay, I see the point. But to work out of? Fuck that shit. With my dad's 250, the top of the bed is at my chest and I'm 6 foot tall. Just not very practical, especially if you're up there in age like my dad. :lol:

The was one or two Cobra years that had IRS if I remember correctly, but it's stock in all the 2015+ models.
