    rip speed accsosories

    i know i can't spell but hey

    i laugh everytime i see some idiot in a mk 3 fiesta 1 litre lx or something similar with a silver petrol cap and some stupid graphic on the bonnet or windscreen.

    Youhave to admit whats the point don't look good don't improve anything.

    I was filling up yesterday and two cars went past one was a fiesta as mentioned above with spinning hub caps which where well wack dog.

    followed by a nissan sunny with some home made speaker system distorting loudly i did have a laugh there are some complete idiots out their

    anyone else had this pleasure.

    Just before last somer when i had my Irmschered Corsa C, i pulled up at the lights next to a polo GTI, looked quite subtle as i was looking round the car, i then noticed the driver seat was wound right back, you know the style lay down with one arm on the wheel! The driver then looked round at me.... he was about 60!!!!! I was pissin my self laughing, he then screemed off as the lights changed to green expecting a race from me This guy must have had a s*'t youth!

    mate if you cant do it properly just please......dont do it at all!!
    thats the message that should be given out when you buy any fin from halfords/ripspeed. it gives proper car enthusiasts a bad name and people think, cos you like you motors, that you have a "no fear" sticker accross you window and spinning hubcaps on your car to!!??

    about a month ago i was comin home from work and saw this awful mini, complete with driver in burbery cap etc etc at a set of light accross the way and he had a massive sun strip on this car sayin......"ON A MISSION"..............I stalled my car laughing so hard!!!

    Each to thier own people but ........................... it does look tacky perhaps the budget is bit tight
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    i had a conversation with my area manager, we seen a fiesta mk1 go buy, and he'd smoohted the bumpers in with filla... and thats it!

    he said something about going 'cruises' and i said 'i got to em aswell sometime' but i had to tell him there were 2 types of cruisers... and that most people laugh at the 'charv' class...

    things can be done on a budget with foward planning and shopping for the best prices, however buying a load of "bolt on goddies" does not constitute for a moddified car?
    The first motor i had was an AXGT and i made that look the nuts and i only spent about Ł1000 on it, just choosing carefully and using scrapyards and elbow grease got me a long way on...............................

    Just remember, each to their own.

    Unfortunately, all the time theres a market for the stuff, they're gonna keep selling it. And the price is only gonna go down, meaning more people can afford to make their cars look...................................ya know.
