This would be better without the lovely lowering, the blacked out tail lights, the roof rack, the exhaust and the drift charm.

The same can be said about 99% of the 240s in the Seattle area.

Roof racks haven't caught on as much in my area, but there are three 240 sedans in my small neighborhood/development that are so badly riced it makes me sad inside.

Spotted on rt20 east at the traffic light for the Home Depot right by 395/290/20 in Auburn MA. Yes, that's either hay or straw in the back seat.

Had you not said Auburn MA, I would've guessed Salem, OR.

Because a rattle-canned beater with a bale of hay in the back would fit in perfectly well there.

Oh god there's a 370z that rolls around my city with those rims, it's the worst. At least it kinda makes sense on that SUV. Still ugly as poo poo though.

Does it roll, or does it lurch/lumber around? Every time I see those I imagine the wheel going oval-shaped.

The Mazda3 (in fact, most Mazdas these days?) is permanently lit - brightly in the day, and it's supposed to dim at night. One would think that getting near blinded by your gauge cluster at night would be an indicator that your lights aren't on, but who knows.

I think my CX-5 gauges are permanently lit, but then again, while it does not have automatic headlights [the one thing I miss from the Grand Prix] it also turns off the headlights automatically after 15 seconds of the car being off. I turned the headlights on when I bought it, have never turned them off since, and I don't even have to think about it! Thanks Mazda!

But really drive down i405, 520, or i5 near Seattle as a passenger and count how many people are on cell phones, or better yet, wearing ear buds or headphones in the car.


This! This poo poo!

Why? I initially assumed "durr can't hook ipod to stereo, will hook head to ipod" but I see this a lot in really nice cars that have to at least have an aux input.

Also, yeah, I'm terrified taking the 5 and 405 to work in the new car. I usually take back highways now. We got some nice slushy hail tonight, and god only knows what that made people do. This is the northwest, yet without fail, my commute time is doubled/tripled on the first day we get real nasty weather in the year. These idiots should know by now how to work with a little snow, then again even rain seems to give them problems. Rain! In Washington!

e. Oh, and the fun of dealing with ricers on the stretch between Lynnwood and north Seattle [usually up to the Convention Center overpass thingy] on the 5. Every loving friday/saturday night, driving to/from the city, there's a few of them racing or just generally being retarded.

Wow, surprisingly nonterrible. I don't particularly want one, but that's a huge improvement to me over previous generations. I've never particularly liked Corvettes, but that's got some nice lines I think.

Unibodies can't really be cut up like that, they won't deform correctly in the second accident, and grinding welds removes a lot of the strength. It'd fold like a can, probably tear apart rather than just deforming.

Wanna see that accident. Of course I don't want people to get hurt, though, so maybe on a crash test site or something. Because that sounds awesome.
