2012 2SS vs. I still live at home with my parents so I can afford to "bling" my honda

God they drive me nuts when they pull up. They either stare at ya (all seven crammed in a civic) or "rev" up in a clear attempt to re-live a fast n furious moment.......

Sorry, what I meant to say was that in the real world, Ive noticed cars getting somewhat goofier over time. Not the ones in the movies.

99% of the time you would be correct OP.

There is, however, that 1% of the time that they roll up in a total sh*tbox of a Honda hatch back, that rumbly annoying can on the exhaust and some very minor tell-tale signs that they're about to utterly rape the car next to them.. Boy is it funny when that happens too..

LOL.. my jaw has dropped a couple of times on this one... Ricers run the full gamit just like the muscle cars. But for the most part they just have lawn mower engines.

BTW... welcome back..

Thanks... I'm sure I'll end up annoying the Camaro Gods yet again and be gone...

They do have their internal variances just like muscle and with all the cosmetic mods for the 5th gens, we are starting to resemble them in having a large number of cars with a lot of bark and little bite... But, there are those amongst us with very plain looking cars with a little bark and one hell of a bite..

When i drove my friend's integra auto with a fart can, I revved at everyone. IT was hilarious hahahaha..... The looks on peoples faces was priceless. I understand what driving a honda is like now, it's fun to rev at everything because the irony is, you will lose to everything and everyone.

ok yes there is some fast hondas, acuras, imports etc.............i really dont think this thread is about tunners..........we are talking ricers, even the import tunner crown can I.D them.....i got a camaro because i want it one, not because i cared about a honda that had 450whp, who gives a shit.camaros are badass cars, and it is true there is a lot of cars out there with a big bark and weak bite.

Guess I should better define what I meant. I am talking about ricers more than actual racers and collectors. Most guys who take the time and effort to mod their honda, mazda or other import to 450hp are not the one's reving at the stop light. It is the ones that clearly have little; if no; experience modding a vehicle but will deck out a car with insanely large rims, walmart body kits and spoilers that not only look ridiculous but do nothing to increase performance...

...I am far from being an expert in this matter myself (but researching and learning everyday) but when a ricer pulls up to me at a stoplight, farts and the driver yells over to me "...race yo vette...", I weep for humanity....
