Default Altima....Type R????

OK, so I went to lunch today and saw a guy getting out of his sharp looking late model Altima that had been lowered with nice wheels and looked OK, for an Altima.

So I thought I'd check and see if it had the 3.5L in it and walked around the back to see. He had debadged it...all except for this...VVV

Mike...

Sad part.. that'* a factory emblem, put on the car when it was produced.

I've seen tons of them with all their normal emblems and the R.. it'* stock.

I figure it stands for Rip on by me!

I thought it stood for "Rice"...

The thing is, that without that silly "R", his car would have been pretty nice and understated. A clean job.

Whatever possessed him to add that is beyond me...

I wish that I had had my camera with me.

Really??? There was a Type R Altima? hmmm... News to me.

Thing is, there were no other emblems, so I figured he just shaved it and added the "R".
