Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse...
I thought fart cannons were bad enough.
Luckily,, my town is a little behind, so I haven't heard one of hose yet. Pretty lucky, I have only seen a few Donks, or Bubbles or Boxes or whatever the h*ll you call those things.

Oh, this is great. I now can't decide between a park bench and an ironing board. Perhaps since the board has already been done, I'll just put on a park bench.

These are some pretty good ideas, but it'* a shame there aren't any interior pictures. Since most ricers are stock inside, this one would be hard. Also, I like the duck call idea. Can I get a heat resistant duck call? If I can get a heavily damaged, oversized catalytic converter, that would be fantastic. Advanced Auto Parts sells $20 mufflers, so I'll see between that, stock, and junkyard (80'* Dodge truck).

I'm glad to see this is catching on pretty well. At first I thought few here would like the idea and the others would tell me to keep the money for the Bonneville. I assure you the Bonneville will not be neglected. I will need one of those towing setups and a heavy duty vehicle. I want to be one of those guys you see on the highway towing his car to a race. Unfortunately, it will be a ridiculous rice burner.

I'll definitely have to invest into some printing for the windows and car body. Primarily, I'll need to put together all the body panels before the emblems of course. It really shouldn't look like I've tried to make it suck, but in the same regards it should not look as if I'm trying for excellence.

Lastly for this post, thanks for the scoop ideas. I shouldn't need a hood scoop because of the carburetor, so I'll put backward scoops right above the headlights. Roof scoops are good, and (fake) ducting from them to the trunk/rear brakes/front brakes should happen, but I'm not sure if it would hide most of the other stuff I have planned.

this has been one of my dreams for about 2 years now, i just havent had the extra cash. the one ive been planning on using is the 3 cylinder 1 liter metro like tall bump mentioned.

my personal favorite is a car i saw that used landscape edging as ground effects on an old civic (my first post was actually about that )


one of my personal favorite pranks my friends and i have done was buy a 1 liter of pop and put it on a rice rocket and leave a note that says i was gunna buy you a two liter but i didnt want your car to get jealous

I could buy some NOS energy drinks in bottle packaging, drink them with my friends while we're gutting this car, and then use them profusely all over the car. I could have a NOS-powered glove box (the heavier bottle makes it open faster). Some of my ideas are really awkward, but I think they're workable. I'd love to keep this cost down, so the landscaping stuff is a good idea. I know a landscaper, and I'll ask him for some "supplies."

One other thing: How come so many people want to do this? Isn't it the epitome of embarrassment?

paint the inside of a 2 liter bottle blue, slap a NOS sticker on the outside and then run a tube from the bottle to beelow the rear deck. place one on each side

trash cans cut in half for hood and roof scoops.

well, I wouldn't say it is the epitome of embarrassment. That would more likely be in you did all this, and then stomped them in the quarter.

As for the car, it'll probably end up on college humor/you tube/myspace/etc, possibly a couple forums depending upon how wild you get with it.

As for doing it, I would say it would be funny, but by no means original (as the pictures before show). Plus, don't think anyone will try and race you other than to try and laugh at you. Going over the top like this will make people know you are making fun of them.

If you wanted to try and egg someone into a false race with a slow car, get a late 80'* civic with a D15 and a 5 spd. Remove the muffler or get a cherry bomb muffler. use the coffee can if you like also. Get an aluminum ricer wing, or a wing from another car that is way too large (bonneville?) and make a half assed attempt at a body kit. I'm sure you could find parts to broken ones if you look hard enough (or a modified SSEi one?) Then just drive around in 2nd/3rd gear, and rev at anything that moves.

I don't know how many times someone has wanted to race me just cause I downshifted to pass a car. That seems to be what people are looking for.

Either way, good luck with it. You're probably looking to have about $300-500 into it, even with getting the car for $100 (if you can find one. Price of scrap has cars going to $200-500 at scrap places) due to all the extras you want to put on (aside from stealing it, those park benches are expensive)


Another thing if you go through with this. Don't forget the entertainment system. Any old free tube TV with a dial should do fine, and a old atari/NES all running of an inverter should work. We had a couple kids do that for the car show we put on previously. Was pretty funny.
