You should send this to a car magazine, the topic seems controversial enough.
Hmmm, last time I checked JNC was a car magazine
LOL, you got me there...
ok let me rephrase, you should get this published in a car magazine. I think most Jnc'ers are against this movement anyway, so theres probably no point to put it in JNC
Actually it might make for an interesting regular feature... "What were they thinking?"
Posted by the owner/builder of the car:
I think you guys jumped to a conclusion way too fast to form an opinion. That wasn't a mint car that was hacked up to look like a bent up drifter. It has a long and legit drifting history and it was basically "restored" to look the way it does now.
Not to sound stubborn but I still feel the same way. Even if the car had battle scars is there really any need to rivet scrap metal everywhere and glue on grotesque side skirts? Again, my anger isn't so much aimed at the owner, I wouldn't really give it a second look at an event. My issue is about how much praise and coverage the car is getting for looking like trash. It's a just a matter of time before others follow and make a world of mess.
Exactly. It's not THE driver that is at issue, it is THE car
(and the horrible cosmetic surgery that has been applied to it). Plenty of other guys have the same experiences and I don't see them doing the same thing to their cars. But those that do will ellicit the same response from me...
oh man All this DRAMA for fun stuff
purposely done, ugly,assuming,judging, hating etc etc ..You guys make me Blush thats little kid 20 yr old car hating ***
Since you guys dont KNOW ME and dont know how long Ive been driving my 86 and how many times ive crashed and nearly died and start basically moaning like a b-tch about it on whats right and wrong about cars and Japan is this and that
A: fell of GMR plus 110ft 5 rolls and I still fixed it in a week to run
B. smashed on 10-20 plus curbs and guard rails due to yes drifting in the streets
C. freeway spinout at 80 ..
D. front end damage due to touge accident
E. bent frame,bent roof, bent rad support, bent LCA;s, bent wheels,bent panhard,bent axle,
all street driving/drifting accidents
all because of driving RIGHT?..and this is my #2 ^ because the po's are at large at all the spots at 2009..creativity is FUN and driving is FUN
Open your mind ..instead of assuming and hating ..GROW
btw dont compare me to another car/driver from Japan as an example ..
Just because people speak their opinions, is no reason to label them 'haters' ...
...I love it when, because someone disagrees with something, they are automatically labeled a hater. Freedom of speech people, freedom of speech.
Ah yes, and the age old "You guys don't KNOW ME"...
Anyway, don't hate me just because I'm beautiful
...I mean, because I speak my opinion
Regarding point A through E - and, these are things to be proud of?
I thought the art of drifting was NOT to crash into things...? Thus showing skill and control over your vehicle.
'tis the owner/builder (builder?) of the car that needs to GROW.
Grow up and learn to take a little criticism. Cuz when you do something like that to a car, there's bound to be some criticism.
Dang, I knew I should have taken my friends advice... oh well, to paraphrase, I guess I have... "opened my mouth and removed all doubt that I'm an idiot"
