Default I've found the most awful car blog ever

http://www.rideyourpimp.com/

Ride your pimp? The name makes no sense! Also, the writing is plain and horrible. Here'* an excerpt:
Quote:
...the series was already in a state of slowing down in fact the following year production of the Nissan 240 SX S14 halted for good. This would have been a dark day for fans of this range and yet because it was the end of the line for the range. However, that did not mean the car would fade away quite the contrary the S14 is more popular today than ever.
Here'* the link so that you know I'm not making this up:

They're only rice-like in appearance, but those cars have quite a bit of oomph in the high RPMs. However you may feel about the style, that crappy site doesn't do it any justice.

Imports...making a 10 second pass is like coming out of the closet. You might surprise a lot of people, but in the end your still gay.

First things first: PUNCTUATION IS YOUR FRIEND, especially if you're publishing something...

Next:
Quote:
Even the exterior has a nice styling to it, having the look of the original car, but with subtle changes that only an S14 expert would notice, such as the massive Greddy titanium exhaust you need to take a close up view of that, it is like a work of art!
WTH? SUBTLE CHANGES?!??! How can you NOT miss that giant fart can protruding from that once proportional rear end? It doesn't take an expert to notice that thing when those types decide to joyride on residential streets at night and wake everyone up on the block with their ridiculous exhaust noise.

One More Thing:

IN CAR ENTERTAINMENT viper security, infinity speakers.
I've never been entertained by a security system, annoyed, but not entertained. Must be some new fangled ricer alarm that plays the Fast and Furious and Need For Speed Underground soundtracks.

I think that part about subtle changes was simply filler. There'* no way a blog about ricers can go on and on like this one does and simply provide facts the whole time. I love the F&F car alarm idea!

I think if you have to wait till you get to the high end for fun driving, its pretty lame (pretty much saying the same as John, but in way that Wanda Sykes won't come up and berate me for using gay for lame). As well, ricers can have all the fun they want in the summer, hope they have fun pulling out of snow in the winter though...

The F&F idea was pulled out of my nightmares. I hate ricers, mostly because they are never done right.

I see what you're saying. Ricers have never been interesting to me, and I've always laughed at them. They're mostly slow and hilarious, but at least kids outgrow them and then move on most of the time. I actually have a special knack for finding local ricers for sale on CL and posting about them here. There have been intensely giggle-icious crapboxes with bodykits, and I think I've covered quite a few of them.

Also, please, help me figure out why "Ride Your Pimp" was thought to be a good name for any site. If I were to tell someone to ride his or her pimp, I certainly wouldn't mean to suggest to the person to get into a ricer.

By the way, I've found more good stuff!

Wow, that 90 air intake bend is truly the result of extensive work! At least there'* a carbon fiber engine cover.

I can don't see what the problem is because of Nissan 240. Spelling grammar is correctly however.

The 240 is nice because it'* a RWD setup. It just needs an L67!
