I can't troll on the way to White Castle. They don't have them here, other than the freezer variety at the store.

What bothers me is when people try to race me with my kids in the car, like that will ever happen. I like to leave it for the track but some people are just asking for it and if conditions are right, (we are the only ones that could get killed) I'll give em what there asking for.
Will, you are sick and twisted for that. I love it

I have a policy on that.....I ONLY do it to ridiculous looking rice. Never to domestics, unless they're riced-out also. Ricey rice just chaps my hide. They can laugh about the Bonneville they killed while they're signing their tickets. The last one I did was a VR6 Jetta, riced out with a wing. Front radar was bleeping pretty strong, we were doing 25 in a 25, so I gunned it when we were side by side. Took 2 tries, then he gunned it and kept going. He got pulled over 4 blocks up, probably a 45 in a 25.

He looked pissed.

You know it'* rice when they put a big wing on a FWD car. I'd never encourage a race though. I only do it when challanged and conditions are perfect, and trust me I get a lot of crap from everyone. Ricers because they think I have a Daytona, people in daytonas beacause they think I'm a ricer. Usually when people see the Conquest the first thing they ask themself is "What the hell is that?" and then "Can I beat it?" They only get an answer to one of those qusetions and it'* usually "No" I can't wait to see what happens with the bonne.

That is one reason I LOVED my buick...no one suspects a car commonly owned by senior citizens...

My sis and her boyfriend are talking about turbocharging it for just that reason
