The point is that the RX7, especailly as I've done it, IS indeed very much like the other cars mentioned, including the Viper (though I painted the RX7 in '93, 3 years before the Viper GTS arrived. These are cars that are all of the same layout, virtually identical form, and in the same role. Why you think they work on one car, but not on an almost identical car, I don't know. Especially when you say you like them on ONE modern car, but call them gay (and if that's not insulting, I dont' know what is) on another car that is shaped very similar, doing the same job, in the same genre...











It's one thing to say YOU'D do the car differently. It's quite another to say it's "gay." that's rude, ignorant, and uncalled for.

I don't know exactly why you're getting worked up for, but I did say "IMO" quite a few times, just to state it was simply "my opinion" mainly because it is MY opinion simple because that's MY opinion (I'll repeat that more next time if the whole "MY opinion" thing doesn't get through). As for the "gay" adjective, ok, how about this then.... in MY opinion and MY own personal point of view, the color scheme of your particular vehicle seems inadequate for its style according to today's popular beliefs, commerciality, and society (IE: ricers and the likes).

Happy now? I even bothered to use correct spelling all for you

so now back to typing incorrectly out of pure lazyness

Because you can't just excuse a f*cking rude insult like "it's gay" by saying "it's my opinion."

I mean, would you walk up to someone and say, "it's just my opinion, but your wife's ugly" and expect that no one takes offense???? Where the FU(K do you live that that is considered acceptable?????

Fecking kids, thinking you can say and damn rude insulting thing you want and get away with it by saying "it's only my opinion, and opinions can't be wrong."

Fecking bastard!

Ok ChrisV calm down man. I understand why you get worked up. I own a 1g and I've heard tons of people call my car ugly. Fact aside it would probably kill their piss weak cars if I really wanted to. It still makes my blood boil. Inygknok, Saying something is your opinion does'nt make it any better. We all know its your opinion theres no need to state that. If it comes out your mouth, then its yours. Theres no one running arround stealing opinions, so stating that its your opinion does'nt make the statement any nicer or any more subtle..

Inygknok, if you can see ChrisV did'nt get ubsurdley pissed at my post because I expressed my opinion in a generally respectable tone. Calling someones hard work and pride "gay" is just not nice. You would'nt appreciate someone ragging on your Supra (and you don't) so its not always ok to come off so strong with such a bold opinion. So whatever have you, chill out guys. No need to get worked up over this issue.

**EDIT**
ChrisV, you would'nt happen to be the Mod ChrisV at Supercars Would yah?

its nice to see DSMER trying to calm things down... thats a happy thought.

but yes, Inygknok shouldnt have called it gay, he could have said it like "im sorry, but stripes isnt my thing" or so and so... and for ChrisV, i understand his blood boils when someone critisizes cars that he had worked on for 7 years blah blah blah, thats his personality, but lets try to suck it up sometimes yeh?

we all can see by now that ChrisV symbolizes his cars like it was his own WIFE.

hey chris...i think you'd like my buddy's '72 MG....he swapped in a 350 chevy with a 4 speed and made it a '66 cobra replica...it's pretty sweet because he didn't buy a kit or anything, he fabbed up everything himself...he molded in old VW bug fenders in back to give it the right look. it's even got the proper 2 bow convertible top.....

anywho...when my lawsuit(s) settle(long story), i plan on buying an '87-88 T-bird turbo coupe. I love the body of the '83-88 t-birds and cougars and they're pretty easy to find. Of course I'll buy the cleanest, lowest mileage one i can find and then mod it. I like the fact that it's almost as fast as a grand national with 2 less cylinders and you can get it in a 5-speed(who would want an auto, fords aod's suck anyway). What can i say, i love turbos...afterall they take so well to mods.

oh, i never really get offended lol, i just pretend to be pissed off to get into the moment for the heck of it. if any of u ever get to meet a group of puerto ricans (specially in new york, cali, and florida, and chicago), u will see how they pretty much have no sense of respect for anything cuz we just dont care tbh.


we have pretty big mouths, and tend to shove our heads up our..... rectums? (is that one acceptable?)


about the whole wife thing, yea, i would and i have, and yes, i spent alot of time in the principal's office back in high school, middle school, elementary school....


i just dont get offended cuz, lets say for example, dsmer goes ahead and calls my supra a Poopra again, i actually find it funny and i know its not a Poopra, but i will just give him the joy of believing im angry just for amusement and seeing where it all leads to, but why get angry over something u know is not true? if u know its not gay, then there is no problem at all. im sure we have all had ugly girlfriends at some point (even i have), n people would say it straight to my face, mainly cuz i have a good taste and sometimes it would be odd to see me with an ugly girl, n i would say, "hell yea shes ugly, but shes a great person". same goes with my car, "hell yea its not the sexiest car in the world, but its my damn car ".


thats how i view the world. i dont expect to get away with anything at all, i never do, but i do expect more from someone as old and experienced as chrisv not to get so worked up on something so simple, specially a comment from a "fecking bastard kid". i get the point that thats his personality, but he should get the point that we all have our own personalities, just like ki2ay has his own personality of never listening to anything, dsmer loves giving me ideas for crankwalk krap, jzxtt has a damn fine gf and is a moron for selling his Z (yes, i hate u for selling it), so on so forth.


i have pretty much come to notice that all arguments in this forum are just cuz people like to stick their heads up their... rectums... and just blatantly ignore the fact that we are all different. i personally, always try to keep in the best mood as possible and if something is turning sour, find a way to make it funny and just forget about the whole thing, cuz getting pissed off just means lowering yourself to their level, or even further (pond scum anyone? hi ki2ay ).


fortunately, stripes are just stripes to me. like i said, they are application specific for me. even body colors are. i cant even stand supras in those green colors some people have them in..... its like speeding mucus balls....


i think everyone has noticed by now that i always try to make some sort of joke, even if its lame, in my posts just to show that im trying to keep my humor up n thats all i mean, its plain humor. im sorry for those that dont understand that, but i cant do anything to make u understand that an upside down frown might just make your life alot more cheerfull.

First off, I've never called a Supra a poopra. Thats just childish. If I make fun of a car I'll just call it crappy. No need to make up names. If your car sucks it just sucks. Anywhos...

My number 1 all time car I would want to own is a Shelby GT500. I just wanna pull up at the light next to some guy in a "Supra", or any other heavily modded import. Say "Hey, nice car. What you got under the hood" Rev my engine, drop the clutch and burn rubber into his intake. Even if he does'nt accept my challenge, just to show how much of an ass I am. Yeah nothing better show your maturity than boasting your legendary "Eleanor"...
