Default Ugly White Talon

I was driving from my friend'* house today, and I saw this nasty *** riced out Eagle Talon next to me. I could tell it was riced, cause it has a 4in exhaust tip on it. I hate ricers, so I wanted to just blow it away. There was a ton of traffic around though, and I couldn't really get next to it. Then the guy in front of me turned right, so i slowed down, and the Talon drove away unsuspecting.

I so coulda killed it.

Ah Talons, how I laugh at thee.

Permission to be VERY bias...thanks!

The Talon is a 100% ripoff of the Eclipse and they did a terrible job doing it. There is a guy around town here with a base model green Talon and he put the most annoying coffee can on his exhaust and a stereo that only makes the cops more pissed each passing day. Well everytime this guy sees my car he revs it to an unsafe rpm level and turns up his bass. I just laugh and continue driving normally.

Again, I hate Talons.

The only good think about the talon is that you can the Turbo AWD version several thousand cheaper then the turbo AWD version of the eclipse.

All the turbo DSMs are cool with me, whether it be a Talon, Eclipse, or Laser. In fact, if I could have any DSM, it would be a 90-94 Talon, I think they look better than the same year Eclipses. With AWD it'd make a kick-*** rally car.

That doesn't change my mind that they are ugly as sin.
