All Venom'* talk about his Prius has me so excited, but I can't afford to buy a new car right now. I am thinking of getting one of these:



Do you think it will make my car go faster, improve mileage, and help me pick up chicks?

Hmmm ... girls dirtier than the under side of my car??? That has a certain appeal to it.

Wouldn't I have to attach some coffee cans to my tail pipes?

I'm thinking two fart cans on each exhaust outlet ..... 200 HP. Plus, I can add one of those performance chips off Ebay:

Why didn't I think of doing that with my car. I added HP the hard way with headers, P&P supercharger, intakes, and tuning. I could have saved my self a ton of money.

Speaking of ricers. I was watching top gear the other week. They had a ricer on there taking on a nice old car. The owner was bragging that he spent over 25k on modding the car and was proud of the fact that it does 0-60 in 6.2 seconds.
