it looks overdone, but yet there is something in the body style thats pretty cool. Its a show car people, not performance
Its a 3 speed auto :screwy:
I vomited when I saw the outside, then vomited 3 more times when i saw that POS sound system. If he put that money into making the car look professionally ugly on the outside he could of at least spent a good amount of money on making the sound system decent!
So far so good. Looks like the tread is returning the exact answers I was looking for.
You beat me to it man, I was going to post it and say "Making Oomba's
Seriously though, if you have that much money to waste, so many better things to be done to it.
Yea. When are you going to pose our little mishap today? "Mom we are working on Mike's car I gota go before it falls"
I don't think anybody here will find it very interesting to listen about how I miscalculated the distance and almost ended up with 3 tires on the sidewalk... Feel free to tell them how you totalled the car on the Boulevard though...3 cars actually.
it was 2 cars
the other one limped away lol
eppies tomorrow call me at 9
that is the ugliest hatch that I have evern seen.
That's disgusting...theres probablt like $50,000 in body mods, and about $50 on K&N air filter...Why? :banghead: :puke: :banghead:
the problem i have with this car except that it's very ugly and rice is
that if you are gonna rice out the outside might as well make the inside
look better. I mean new cars have nice interiors but old ones dont. I mean
that might make it even more rice but at least the inside wouldn't look
MAn with all that money that was spent on making it rice imagine if all that was spent on performance now that would be sweet. :laughing:
ugliest.. peice of shit... that i've ever seen...
It may be rice, but Im going to have to admit that the design is pretty cool and whoever did it is pretty talented. Now if it only had substantial horsepower :oops:
Thank you MTV for pimping my ride!
no if mtv would have done it it would have better paint job and the interior would have some tv's and maybe even the exterior would have TV's and they definatelly wouldn't have the intake there i never seen em do any kind of performance upgraded.
They don't do performance upgrade because it's MTV. Most people who watch
it would get bored if they go on about fitting high lift cams etc. Also
parents would get concerned as it promotes speeding to young kids and
teenagers if they get shown turbo and nitrous being used and tested etc.
Also a pimped car doesn't need high performance to do it's job.
However they do replacement engines.
The design is rather unique in a way. And he has done a few things I have never seen before. The gas door on the roof, and the air intake coming out of the hood. Uniquely ugly
WTF IS THAT??!?!?! :screwy:
Im so glad my hatch dont look lke that... ew
IMO it looks worse...just me tho. You made it look too boxy for my taste, but is it fast?
body kit = NO. Thats not rice it's ugly. rice is cheap. That looks like it costed some Doe
HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!
That is kinda funny .... I wonder if it was meant to be?
do u think that car has sweet interior or somethin?
That is by far the ugliest Body kit I have ever seen on an EG in my life (and I've seen ugly)!!!!! I'm not sure if I like the air intake poping out of the hood though. But you have to give whoever did the bodywork credit. Not one seam, crack, misalignment, the work looks professional. To bad it's hideous!
His hatch is very boxy from the factory... Like all 88-91 hatches.
The 4th gen Civics can be made pretty quick pretty easily. The '91 Civic Si had a D16 with 108hp. That's the quickest stock USDM model. Japan got the SiR and SiRII 88-91 Civic Hatch with 160ps while Euro got a similar 1.6i-VT model with 150ps. The Si hatch only weighed 2275lbs. A lot of people though who go mostly for performance get the DX hatch which weighed only 2150lbs (both the DX and Si are only made "fast" IMO with a motor swap).
Two common motor swaps in this hatch is tha B16a1 (160hp) and the DOHC ZC (130hp).
Those are great little cars. Im thinking of getting one for my first car. I
drove my cousins the other day and liked it. For only 108hp it had some get
up. It has a 5-speed so it was pretty fun. I need something good on gas
anyway, if I was to get a muscle car like I originally wanted it would kill
my wallet :laughing:
A H22a engine swap sounds pretty good to me :hi:
Not necessarily...I just don't agree with the statement that older car interiors are worse looking than new ones in all aspects.
If you want to try a real fun car get in a CRX Si. It's like the Civic Si
only tighter, more nimble and quicker. Weighs as much as the Civic DX
The CRX Si is a great car to have fun with. You see quite a few of them in the SCCA Solo II running just stock class mods (shocks, exhaust, slicks).
The H22a swap is very difficult i nthe 4th gen civic/crx, and it really makes them front heavy. Honestly the best swap for those are the B16a1 and DOHC ZC (if you dont have enough money for the B16a1). The DOHC ZC is a wonderful motor and is extremely cheap and lightweight (130hp and $600-$800 for complete motor/trans).
MY friend had a 5th gen DX hatch (92) that is heavier and not as nimble as the 88-91 CRX Si and it has the DOHC ZC swap. Cost him $700 total for the swap and he has put about $800-$900 into the engine for mods (I/H/E pulley set and cam gears) making about 155-160hp and 16" wheels (on 215 rubber) with just lowering springs and that car will run with a lot of others... VEry fun car to drive.
Uhhhh yeah ok eventhough they put new bigger better engines in multiple car among other performance things. :screwy: :screwy:
The VX wieghed in at 2094 lbs. and offered absolutly nothing. No power
anything, no a/c, and a super efficient/wimpy 1.5L making 92 Hp @ 5500
(For those of you who care)
:screwy: What other performance mods do they show on Pimp My Ride? They only put new engines in if the original one is broken or about to break.
"Well your Ford escort was like 2 cars being held by gum, so we just got you a new tC instead of finding another escort."
I remember that episode. Except they got him an xB.
yea yea my bad
and they riced the ass out of it
wasnt it the black one where the amps were like clear or some shit
They had to dub out the word Scion in one of the episodes :screwy: It sounded weird because they were not swearing.
they do some very unique mods though
like the table tennis in the truck
ya too bad they are not usefull. I mean yeah u gues play table tennis while i drive on the expressway. And i don't get why the driver needs the LCD's i mean u cant drive while wtching the football game it's kind of stupid. YEah lets put a fountain or an ice cream making machine in the car maybe then he will drive better. Won't get into accidents to **** up his car.
If I get my ride pimped I'd be extremely careful with it, but if there was
an ice-cream maker, I'd live in there :laughing:
Pimp my ride isn't too bad, at least the car looks nice, and sounds nice, so you wouldn't have to put money into that part :2cents:
Engine alone is a performace thing. Especially since they don't put another stock mtoor in they usually put in a better thing. And yes I saw an episode where they put an intake on a car.
the show is made for the mass rap-listening public, because they like all that loud systems, chrome rims, pimpin paint, and all that other bullshit in their cars. i like it because its very unique and you never see cars like that on the road, but when you think about it, its kinda stupid.
Okay first of all, I like rap and loud systems, secondly I don't like the chrome rims, paint and all that other shit, so take that previous comment outta there, lastly you don't see any cars like that on the road because nobody is stupid enough to put that shit on the road
I think most of the concepts from pimp my ride is cool. I love the
projector mounted to the trunk so that you can watch movies when you're
parked up facing a wall.
"You don't own these rims, they're yours!" :mrgreen:
I used to watch that show, but I got tired of the condom commercials
OMFG :banghead: :banghead: :cussing: :cussing: :cussing: :screwy:
I think that gave Oomba a heart attack :laughing: :laughing: :ticking:
Two things. Firstly, sometimes I find it kinda hard to believe that show.
How do you turn a car THAT bad into something that looks how it does.
Secondly, what's the point? The final car is not driveable since if someone
hits your trunk, the 100 of TV's, sound system equipment, fountains, and
everything else is gone. If you get the car totalled, it's all screwed up.
And if you can't drive the car, then there's no point in just showing it
I would much prefer for them to take my car and spend all of those tens of thousands of dollars on a new one that cost that much instead of putting it into "pimping" out the one I have. :2cents:
Well it depends on what you are doing. Personally I dont like show cars. I like performance, and style, but not to the point where its rice. I like a car with rims, spoiler, exhaust, intake, turbo, shift kit, ignition system, tints, lowered and some sound equiptment. thats just personally me. If I had a car that was more tunable than my neon, and if it was stick, those are the things I would do to it. Not in that order though. :2cents:
the ONLY thing cool about that car is the intake coming out the hood, ive never seen that before
What'd I say?
I like the car. It is a show car for sure. The entire body kit is molded
in. That takes alot of work. It has a nice color, clean paint, lots of
customs you won't find on any other car. The interoir and engine
compartment need customizing but I think I wouldn't want to get the car for
everyday use. Definetly a show car. :thumbs: If you don't like it thats
fine, but you have to respect the amount of work that customizers put into
projects :clap: Take care, let me know if you end up getting the car.
Dude...get off of that sh!t, alright, a lot of work went into the car, but
it is nauseating, and has just about no engine mods...methinks you too are
a ricer :screwy:
But everyone is entitled to their own opinion...
I think the best car on pimp my ride was the green chevelle. They put a
nice engine in it and made it look nice and clean while not going too
But like the monitors on the front bumper and under the car...whats stopping them from being stolen. And also why the hell would you ever need them? You will NEVER use them. That show is such a waste of time and money.
If my car was ever "pimped" id take off all the monitors and useless shit and sell it. Or just sell the car to some rich kid for like 30 grand and get a nice new car :thumbs:
Popular culture, every rapper's got the 26" Dubs, with the TV's covering every square inch of the interior, the massive sound systems...PMR could care less if that is what the "pimpee" wanted, but what they car about is the viewers, because that's where their money comes from to do the show...Hey I learned something in school :laughing:
exactly. all the wiggers and gangstas and wanabe thugs
god they piss me off...maybe thats why i dont like oomba
Considering im neither a wigger or a wannabe thug you might wanna geuss again.
It could just be your constant pointless arguing, bashing peoples cars when you clearly only have a wishlist, and calling every other upgrade rice. Or it could be the fact that youre just plain dumb. :laughing:
wtf? must have touched someone's nerve :wink2:
I dont call upgrades rice you idiot. Neon lights and body kits are not upgrades.
Actually they are upgrades, but visual ones, I think you meant performance upgrades are not rice? :2cents:
Upgrades would imply that they improve something. Bodykits, euro taillights, and neons do not improve the look of a car.
The nicer looking subtle ones don't look too bad...and if I ever bust a
taillight, I'm probably getting Eurolites...as soon as I get a car
But I wouldn't replace them if they were working...
well actually Oomba thats what they are made for. To improve the look of
the car if a person doesn't like the way it looks. :banghead: What other
reason do u think euro lights and bodykits are made? The are made to
improve the look of the car. Now that doesn't mean that every person will
like the new look but the person who added the bodykit prob will.
Now i think that a lot of people don't like body kits because they think stock is best and maybe same with altezzas and all that. But i am sure that if a car company would have the same front buper just like one of the body kits, the people who hate bodykits wouldn't complain at all. I mean bassically a lot of companies are now using clear tailights. I dunno if it's clear, altezza or euro. But like the Altima had some clear ones and nobody is saying that looks rice or like the IS 300 has clear one but no one calls em rice but when i person changes some tail lights that he doesn't like on his car to altezzas everyone starts to bash him.
Just a thought
Stock can be darn boring :laughing:
Then the products should do their job. But since it makes the owners look likes asshats, I'm gonna say they dont count as an upgrade.
They can't sell it for before a certain amount of time.
And THAT is soley an opinion, one which MOST people would disagree with you on.
I wouldnt say most. Ask real car enthusiasts, people who actually do engine
work themselves and can appreciate powerful vehicles will not agree that
body kits are "sick", so cut the ricer being the majority bullshit. Unless
you think The Fast and The Furious is as hardcore as it gets, you arent
gonna think body kits and other ricey shit is nice.
R I C E is not a majority, its just popular among the younger crowd. Things the younger crowd are into gets put into media and movies and shoved down everyone else's throats. There are more real car enthusiasts over the age of 25 than under. Whens the last time you've seen a 60 year old ricer? I havent seen one. But whens the last time you've seen a 60 year old Corvette or Mustang owner? Every time I leave the house.
that honda is f*cking ridiculous.... but really, what i want to see is a
pimp my ride "6 months later" show. b/c all these folks live in ghetto-ass
places and have cars that are generally in disgusting condition... i mean,
how do you let your car get that bad? i would f*cking kill myself if i
became that lazy and stupid.. these people deserve to drive the pos that
they've turned their car into until they die... but anyways, what do you
think is gonna happen to these cars on pmr? their nighbors are gonna steal
all the expensive shit out of it, then they're gonna crash it into about 5
different things a week, then they're going to fill it w/ fast food
wrappers and spilled soda, and i bet most have bullet holes in them from
other wannabe thugs wanting to steal more of their shit.... so in 6
months, after all the bondo falls out from a pothole, it's gonna be an even
worse piece of shit than it started out being...
but that's what i wanna see....
YEah i would mind seeing that except i bet half the people sell their cars
Like I posted before... they are BOUND by a contract so that you can't just get on the show then sell your car. :banghead: :banghead:
yeah but i am sure u can somehow get out of it
u can just be like i don't want it anymore so i gave it to my dad who gave it to his uncle who gave it to his son who sold it or something. I am sure there is a way that u can get rid of it.
Oomba....why on earth do you participate soooo much in threads regarding "Sick" boy racer cars, namely Ricer POS's....if you hate them so bloody much?....why not just shut the hell up....we are all aware of your opinion by now :banghead:
finallly somebody said that yesss stop whoring oomba :laughing:
That is absolute bullshit. Most of the top japanese tuning garages sport a large range of bodykits and they do custom engine jobs. That's the thing with anti-ricers, they think they are down with the real enthusiasts yet "real" enthusiasts have already contradicted their points.
oomba will never change. why not just ignore him?
OWNT PLZ. :laughing: THX.
Because the majority of the threads on this joke of a forum are ricer threads. 99% of the users are ricers.
Can you back that opinion up?
99% also own cars...sorry Oomba
duh for the noobs!!
well seeing as there aren't 100 regular usres, that'd mean that we're ALL ricers, which of course, includes YOU :wink2:
99% of us say he cant. :laughing:
Only because im not willing to settle for a shitty car. I know im not rich enough to buy such amazing cars as a Honda Accord or a Dodge Neon. Thats probably too much power for me to handle anyway!!
Damn, just damn... the winner isnt even going to pay for it (look at his previous comments...)
I agree with calling the Neon a shitty car, but did you just try and say
the Accord is a shitty car? That's quite, well, :laughing:
The 200,000 or so people a year who buy them surely would disagree.
youre right. because you have never driven a car
What a ****ing smartass :orglaugh:
Sounds like a loser to me.
I dont own a car. Thats not saying I never have owned a car. Let alone
never driving one.
PS to whoever said that Accords arent shit, yes they are. Their are more J-bodys sold a year than Accords, that doesnt make them better.
Wow, you are a moron...
GM sells J bodies based o nthe fact people can buy them for absolutely nothing (in most cases 25-30% BELOW msrp). People buy Accords because they think they are the best family car, not because you can get an excellent deal on them (because in fact it's very rare to find a dealer that will go much below msrp on a new Accord).
BTW - I meant to say roughly 400,000 a year (Wasn't thinking straight) who buy Accords.
Honda sold ~398,000 Accords in 2003 in JUST the U.S.
Honda sold ~387,000 Accords in 2004 in JUST the U.S.
I dont think GM's J-body sales come anywhere near that a year in America. I can't find GM sales numbers for specific cars at the moment. Maybe you can find some.
OWNED!!! Take notes oomba. See how some intelligent people can get their point across without dissing everybody else's car and constantly repeating themselves.
I havent seen you bring anything good to this conversation.
Whats good about the Accord? There is NOTHING good about Accords. They may be reliable, but whoopdee****ingdoo, that doesnt matter to me when I can get a better car thats just as reliable from another company.
I'm not saying I make only useful points in conversations. That's why I
used Thunderbird's quote as an example, not mine. But now that you
mentioned it, how many times have you seen make flame someone, make fun of
someone's car, or just start unnecessary trouble?
Furthermore, if you can get a better, just as reliable car from another company, why don't you?
And what more reliable and better car can you get from another company? That V6 Ford Probe GT you oh so dream of? Not saying there arent better cars than accords, because there are, but now that I am tired of convincing you, then what car do you want?
Because I need to work to get my car, mommy and daddy dont buy it for me :thumbs:
I paid 2500 cash of my own saved money for my neon. dima paid 3000 saved cash for his civic. mikey paid 4000 saved cash for his altima. now before you say something stupid, please get facts to back it up :thumbs:
Saying that my Altima sucks because it is a weak car is one thing (thought I disagree since power is not needed 99.9% of the time). But, to state stuff like this is just ridiculous as it is completely untrue. My mom and dad did not buy me anything...it's called a job. :thumbs:
You payed 2500 for a Neon? Your dumber than I thought.
Well if you drive like you argue then YES I think it WOULD be too much power. :fu: :laughing:
Just like around 98% of anyone who talks about a late 80's early 90's Mustang and says 5.0 is wrong right? That is some hypocritical sh*t right duee :laughing:
Yeah and what have you got? That tricycle in your sig, as well as sh*t for brains? Lol seems like you got a jump on everybody :thumbs:
If I wanted a shitty ass Neon I have enough money to buy one. But I want a good car, so I'm not gonna settle.
I'm beginning to think you have no damn clue as to what the term hypocritical means...
Must be something other than reliability that nearly 400,000 people a year buy an Accord. What family car do you tihnk is better and why in its price range oomba. And is just as reliable? What's funny to me is now you can get an Accord with near 99-04 Mustang GT performance (see Accord V6 Coupe Six Speed) for about the same price as it was back then. But still have more room, more luxury and better reliability.
HEy Oomba it can be a shitty neon, a prius, an integra, a beetle, a corvette or any car that runs, even a steam powered car. You know what all those have in common They can all beat your 0-60 and 1/4 mile time. You know why? Cause u dont have a car! hahahaha :laughing: :laughing: So why don't u stop flaming peoples cars and everything cause right now u don't have a car so u are just making yourself look stupid.
Dude, I'm pretty sure that's not a picture of him :wink2:
I can appreciate the work that went in to the body mods on that Civic,
though doing them all out of steel added weight. It has some unique style,
but there are things that are definitely questionable. I'd bet that the
body mods cost the owner/builder very little, which is why they were done
rather than spend a bunch of money on engine upgrades. (doing it out of
steel requires some cheap flat sheetmetal, a little rod stock, and a
It's not my style, but I can still appreciate the work involved.
As for Pimp My Ride, I love it. They take cars that are piles of crap or on their last legs and do outrageous, over the top customizations on them at no cost to the owner. They aren't SUPPOSED to be practical or utilitarian. That's the point.
If I had a barely running POS sitting around that they wanted to put $20k worth of "useless" stereo and TV gear in, at no cost to me, then fine by me!
My favorite, however, was the green VW Bus. That thing was uber-cool...
I find it funny that even though that thing got over 8k in bids, his reserve wasn't met. Even if I was into those kind of cars I wouldn't spend over 4k for it.
because it has low miles, ACR rims, Sport package, and flawless condition. and if youre so cool then go buy a car and then you will have room to talk. better yet get a licence.
So far all anyone has to do is look at two or more of your posts to find out the definition.
Oh dear....not a very wise one, that :banghead: :screwy:
I was starting to think that too...
Yup still dont know what it means, look it up kid.
I have my license, ****tard.
and how do you want us to believe you? not that i really care, but its just funny how they gave such a moron the licence to drive a car period.
Yet its easy to believe they gave someone who thinks a dodge neon with neons in it and brags about being in a "street racing club" is cool a license.
nice comeback. not. at least i have a car to start a club. and at least i have friends that wana join because i dont call them ricers.
Ooh, very 4th grade.
Your mom is fat, LoL.
Look at me, im at your level.
Seeing as how this thread has gone from bad to worse...I'm gonna close it :thumbs: :banghead:
He can't anymore...
Thanx, Bav....he was really starting to bug us all....then he called CF a joke...Grrrr :banghead:
