the little rice rocket that just Couldn't

April 5, 2007

okay, so they make it look all uber kewl and stuff on the fast and the furious, but whose idea was it to turn 4-bangers into race cars?

a little while back i found myself behind a sophomore example of the 4-wheeled rice rocket. it was a toyhondasomething, shiny black with tinted windows, oversize chrome exhaust pipe, and a tail fin big enough to fly with.

and it’s getting on the highway.

and i can’t merge out of the way.

so i get stuck behind this little car and the driver is going through the gears, making the motor whine ::




i swear this guy was at least to third gear and had yet to break 25 mph . . . though his chromey exhaust thingy managed to break the sound barrier at least twice.

i mean, i’ve had lawnmowers that could put on a better show.

whatever happened to nice growly muscle cars?

i’m sorry, but if i can pass you in my pregnant cow of a pt cruiser, you ain’t drivin a race car.

    Oh, how I agree.

    I’ve personally always been a fan of classic Muscle Cars.

    I love the size, the weight and the sheer grumble of the engine.


    I don’t understand “boy racer” cars. . . the suped up imprezias and stuff.


    Give me a classic 1969 Mustang Shelby GTO500 4 speed in Candy Apple Red. YUMMY!

    All I read was cars. . . .

    I like to be blissfully unaware.

    We passed some middle-aged guy in a Ferrari on our last trip to California. I’m sorry, but anyone who lets himself get passed by a minivan full of Mormons has no right to drive a Ferrari.
