I actually had some ricer call BS on the little "SUPERCHARGED" badge on my trunk. And back when I had the SSEi, my brother overheard some moron commenting on my "ricer turbo-simulator", after a run at the Hangover Nats on New Year'* Day 05.

I had to chose dont have one to stare at. But I do get alot of stares at my Northstar badges I put next to the GXP ones when I redid the paint. Then I jack the rear and purge. That really wakes em up!

i chose i'm going to badge my SE as an SSEi now.but don't worry, it won't say supercharger, till it'* in there. the only other clue will be the "L67VAN" licence plate.

i hope they think i'm a ricer with a turbo simulator.

Didnt drive the 96 long enough to notice any attention, but when I was at the exchange once a kid had to look twice at my gold rims. First was a glance, second was a good look. Or mayby he caught the "supercharged" text, I dont know. All I know is if I was in my 88 Taurus he wouldn't be looking at it the same way. :P
