That'* one thing I'm not going to miss when I move. The whole street is nothing but single family homes. And theres a sign on the street, just about every yard, that says "Resident Parking Only".

Where I'm at now, there are 4 or 5 Catholic Chruches within a 2 block radius. You move your car on a Sunday or Wednesday and you are so screwed....

I know what you mean. I have skipped school several times because I know as soon as I leave some student or teacher is going to come take my spot. I like the resident parking only signs, I wish we had those. The parking across the street is posted parking or school only, M-F 8-4, but they don't enforce it.

I am highly offended that you would call my car 'Rice'

j/k

Seriously, the DSM crowd (Eclipse/Talon) are very ANTI-rice and we do everything we can to not be associated with the big wing crowd.

Back to parking... There is room for 2 cars to park in front of my house. I have too many cars to fit in the garage/driveway so one of them is forced to the street. What really ticks me off is when someone parks in front of my house dead center, basicly taking up 2 spots :@

Yeah, we actually could fit three on the street if everyone parked right, but the Eclipse is parked up too far. You can fit like half of a car behind her and in front of mine when I can get it there.
I do have respect for the Eclipse/Talons. IIt'* good to know you try to stay seperate form the "air plane" crowd. I just thing big wings and silly exhaust pipes and absolutely no engine mods are kind of silly.

Thank you for the education. I stand corrected. It certainly appeared to me that it was not stock, I makde a mistake. Forgive me.
Does this one have a "mesh" grill and lower area.
You know what is wierd, the one in front of my house has a damaged fog light, too.
Since I am admitting mistakes, I must also admit that I was mistraken earlier when I siad the whels were not chrome, in fact they are. They have just been dirty and I got a good look the other day. They have not been cleaned, I just got a better look.

those wheels are worth a good $400-500 they didnt put them on many GST and I would die to get my hands on a set. IMO anyone who considers them self a "car enthusist" should except all cars, even if they are "rice". I drive my eclipse and my probe and love them both and excpet all cars even if they are my favorite.

I do appreciate all cars (well almost all anyway). Even more than that, I apreciate and respect people who respect thier car, no matter what it is. What I do no like is people who are disrespectful to others, which I feel she is doing by having her car parked how it is.
If you knew of some of the cars I have owned, and actually kind of enjoyed, you'd understand. I have been the proud owner of a Renault Encore and a Dodge Aries (both stick shifts). These were the 2 chepaest cars I have ever owned ($300 for the Aries and $50 for the Renault) and I had a blast in both.
I still do think it is crazy to think a car is fast because it sounds like a lawnmower and has a spolier that will trim low hanging tree branches.
And, just for the record, I would kill for a Supra, Srt-4, a WRX Sti, or a Dodge Stealth with a 6 speed, all wheel drive and twin turbo.
And I do think it is cool that the wheels are chrome, I honestly thoght they were aluminum, which I am not really a fan of.

Rice sucks....on my plate or on the road. But I dont bash peoples opinions of them . Great photo post 92Bon...my printer is chirping them out now and I'll use alot of them each visit to the custom shop. Maybe I should staple a Bonnie Club Card to each and hope for converts. We need a meet where we buy a Honda and make it BYOSH(Bring your own sledge hammer) as well as BYOB. Now THAT would be cool! Lets just not mistake Allisons for the "merrymaker" I gotta go for she BYOSH'* me... hehehe
