Should be interesting next season to see how the 5 litre performs

posted by  Wally

What I don't get is they are bringing in these new cars/styles but are also talking about the 'future' care that they have been testing (will make all cars more even). If they are to bring those out then isn't it a waste spending so much on these new cars/designs only to be good for a year?

What's blacks got to do with anyting??? Last time I checked, the black car stereotype was predominantly Cadillac. I don't ever see much brotha's in Camrys. Mostly big body Caddy's, Caprice's, Impala's, Monte Carlos, Lumina's, Oldsmobiles, and the like. They already had Monte Carlos in Nascar, and I wasn't aware of an increase in the minority population attending Nascar events.

Ooooo.....*wait for it* lol

It's really not good to stereotype like that!

And why do you put your email addy in every post?...who's gonna email you? lol

That's exactly the point of the diversity program, to make blacks and other minorities more aware and increase their participation. For whatever reason, if you go to any stock car event, minorities are way under represented when compared to the general population of the surrounding area.

My local dirt track is a perfect example. The complexion of the surrounding area is almost evenly split 50% white/50% black, but on any given Saturday night you'll have 700-1000 people in attendance and less than five of those will be non-white. Check out the links for more info on NASCAR's programs.

Is the Camry going to enter the Busch series as well?? Hopefully I'll be able to watch the Daytona race next week on MotorsTV.

posted by  fudge

Yes, but not until 2007 for either series. Obviously, Tundras have been in the truck series for a few years now.

Perhaps he shoulda said why there's no children of rap in NASCAR. All racism aside, most of those were pretty funny if you ask me, party pooper :laughing:

Don't try calling me a liberal to cover for the fact that you're an ignorant racist. Maybe instead of calling people names, you should pull your head out of your ass and join the real world.

BTW, shitty photochop job on the girl.

posted by  vwhobo

Wow, you broke the rules twice, at individual intervals in the same thread!

I've already warned you about the advertising in your sig. That warning's still there! Are you really that stupid!

posted by  Cliffy

Where is it that I have called anyone names? I haven't, yet I have been called ignorant, a moron, a spamsomthing, what else??

The top 10 list was written by Chris Rock, so now who is racisit?

Your action to impose YOUR idea of equality actually displays your own discrimination and intollerance. Then you top it off with name calling?

The attacks on me are based on emotions and not the facts, that is what liberals do.

It is better to keep quiet and be thought of as a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

You should read and heed your own advice, genius. Whether you like it or not, even when Chris Rock does that as part of his routine, it's still racially charged. Dave Chappelle regularly uses the word nigger, but for a white male such as myself to do so would be unacceptable. That is not emotion, that as pure unadulterated fact.

Now let's consider the fact that you've unilaterally decided that I must be a liberal because I don't subscribe to your viewpoint. If you look at recent history, you'll see it's the liberals who stand behind the curtain free speech to try to take away the ability of others to use theirs. You are the one who posted the ten reasons (without attribution I might add). Now because I'm exercising my right to free speech and calling you what you appear to be, your panties are in a wad. That is modern liberalism at its finest and you are the one perpetrating the deed.

Let's take it step further. Did you spend some time doing research on me before jumping to your ignorant and ill decided conclusion? Did you know anything about me before labeling me a liberal? Have you looked at my long history of posts on this forum, some of them describing in detail my political views? Obviously not. I am as conservative as the day is long and have been since probably when you were in diapers. The difference between you and I is that I understand that with actions come consequences, and the consequence of your action is being labeled a person who doesn't know the appropriate time and place for something of that nature at best, and a racist at worst. Simply being stupid is another strong possibility.

The front doesn't look real because NASCAR racers don't have actual lights, just airbrushed fake lenses. So yes, it looks fake because the real car's lights are fake. ;)

posted by  ChrisV

That would explain it, but they look oddly real for being brushed on...

posted by  chris_knows

Well, I gotta correct ChrisV on this point. They're not airbrushed on, they're stickers. Headlights, tail lights, etc, haven't been painted on Cup cars for years. As a matter of fact, current technology has it so entire cars can be what's known as "body in white" and the entire thing is covered with one big sheet of vinyl (about nine seperate panels actually). That way they don't have to be destickered, repainted and restickered for an appearance chance. You can just peel off the old look and stick on the new.:thumbs:

posted by  vwhobo

Well, yeah, but they are usually stickers of airbrushed artwork, not actual photos of the lights. Check them up close. ;) Though in the last couple years, digital imaging on vinyl has come a long way.

OTOH, Jeff Gordon's PPG chameleon paint was in fact, paint.

posted by  ChrisV

There are alot of cars, most actually, that are still in fact paint. I said the cars CAN be fully covered with vinyl.

posted by  vwhobo

Well there's exceptions to the vast majority of rules/generalized statements/ etc. And why wouldn't they use photos? Not saying tha they did, just seems like it'd be cheaper and have a better effect.

posted by  jedimario

Dunno why they wond't use photos, other than the fact that the perspective is off, and an airbrush artist can compensate for that. The first pics posted in the thread of the Camry and Tundra used airbrush art (on vinyl), while the second Camry looks like it could use a photo on vinyl.
