i understand makin' show cars but over here in the UK we don't have shows and nights like you have in the states...so why bother!
I missed this the first time around...
Why bother? becaeu that;s what they like, maybe? Why make a car faster when you have cops and speed limits? A car that's primarily a street car has zero need of being faster than it is in stock form (as fun as it may be) so why spend all that money on horsepower and handling you'll never use on your commute, when you can make teh car look better to you? You can use THAT every time you see it!
I'll give you anoither analogy.. Do you bathe? Do you wear clean clothes? Why bother cleaning them when they will just get dirty again, right? Why bother trying to improve your appearance by changing your haircut or dressing better, right? Dressing better doesn't make you think faster, or run faster, or lift more weight, right? So why bother looking good?
Or, do you insult people who have ugly cars? Would YOU drive a car you thought was ugly? Why not, if looks are unimportant?
I love having cars that are customized, even if they aren't fast. I have no teenage, testosterone addled need to have every car I own be a fecking race car. I love race cars. I love fast cars. I've built many. But they aren't the only valid kind of car to own.
