Default "ricing out" cars

now i dunno if this has been posted before, and i don't mean this to be mean towards anyone, but i don't understand why people "rice" out thier cars. i mean adding a huge wing will only create drag if you're not going 120mph or have it tuned right. i guess its the whole all show and no go thing that gets me. i dunno if anyone else agrees with me but thats just how i feel.

anyone else?

Some people are good at body work while others are better at working on mechanical things in a car and some people are good at both and some people just like to waste so much of their money to have other people do it either way its all a waste of money unless you have a trans am or older muscle car or a viper ot porsche or a ferrari etc etc etc some people like the looks more than the crappy gas mileage that you get when you up the hp alot along with spending more money I dunno my opinion

I like it when people rice out their cars. That way I can pick out who is going to try and cut me off on the highway.

Mmm...so true.

Also a nice blip of the supercharger as you casually drive by always makes them sink down in their seat.

*riced out imports you see on the roads are not indicative of the true tuner crowd
