Default Villager Riced

Do you guys like to make fun of those ricer heads? Do I even need to ask.

Well, today I saw a Mercury Villager with custom rims. (probably 17 inch) I can't believe someone could think that a minivan is worth suping up or modifying in any way. Its like putting custom exaust on a shopping cart. When I saw the car at a gas station as I was driving by, I almost crashed my car I was laughing so hard.

Of course it was a young guy my age, who probably got a case of the "Fast and the Furious". I think his brain may have been infected when he decided a minivan would look real cool with cheapo rims.
Just thought you guys should know that minivans are now... "the ****"!

I've seen clips of an old Dodge Minivan running 13 sec quarters. The 2.5 turbo was easily tweaked to make tons of power.

Good question. No I'm pretty sure they were those really cheap brand of wheels with a really bubbly look to them. Maybe not all minivans are bad, but still, it seems like all the power in that "mean mini" could be put to better use in a sedan or coupe. But talk about a sleeper.

It seems even funnier when I remember my mom also drives a Mercury Villager.
