I hope the "mods" to the new car are BS. That body kit stuff aside from being crazy expensive is WAY over the top.

...it is a Honda...which are considered to be Rice Burners by most. Geoff is well known by all of those who posted the Rice comments ...they will "joke around" with him more so than if he were a new member. I honestly don't think Geoff has taken offense to the comments, and if he did, he would tell everyone so. Calling people "ignorant" is more offensive, at this point, than throwing up the Rice picture. We're all friends here, no need to get upset over it.

I take no offense to anything. I also find it funny how everyone jumps on it as being rice though. As for whether I am kidding or not, only time will tell. There are a couple people who have gotten hints as to my plans, so we'll see.

Of course it'* rice. It doesn't have to have a big wing to be rice, just an Asian car. Actually I would call my uncle'* new Chevy Aveo rice, it'* like 95% Korean.

So mike, when can I drop the bonneville off with the list of repairs?

I was thinking i should do some engine mods too so I am not a complete ricer, so I have decided on a electric BOV that is set to go off when I hit VTec and an electric supercharger for a little boost. I hear the VTec motors like the extra push.

I was also thinking of shaving the rear doors. I think it would give it a good look. Oh, and a 4" drop.
