Here’s a couple of pics of the Bwarp Appliance from when it was fitted with RSR TI2000 springs (meant for a K12 Micra/March). I was expecting a 35mm or so drop, and they ended up being closer to 60mm…. Gotta love tardme deals.
Snapped a few pics before our substandard roading made me raise it back up to normal height. The sills were very thankful as they took a hiding, as did the exhaust manifold which is on a super shitty angle from factory.
I decide to ask a girl what her opinion was on cars. Modified cars in particular. This girl is not new to the modified car scene at all. She was once a person that went to the thursday night Melling drags with a bunch of bogans, but is not car trash by any standard (no tramp stamps or bleach blonde hair and certainly no playboy labelled merch)
What makes a car “hot”?
Something either new and shiny and likely black. Or old school cars, but not tacky – so no flame paintjobs.
What has been the favourite modified car you have ridden in/driven in the past?
Probably ‘Goldie’. It was a gold Mazda Familia Turbo. The old square-ish one.
What made it appealing?
Because it was cool. It was shiny. but it was like a stupid car because it was a hatchback, but it was shiny and gold. It was so low. You pretty much sit on the ground. and it was bumpy and fun.
If you were going to build a modified car, what you be the top three things on your ‘to-do list’?
A good soundsystem (doof doof)
a new paint job (black with some shiny fleck)
and it would have to be low
Does the car a guy drives have any bearing on whether you would date him or not?
No… but in saying that, I wouldn’t go out with a guy who had no car. because it’s a pain in the arse.
What modified car trends do you dislike?
People who try to make their cars faster. What’s the point if it’s just used on the road?
Does the word ‘Horsepower’ mean anything to you?
Horsepower? like how many horses it has to pull it? nah i know that means that’s how much power it has.
So it seems the moral of the story is – The size of your turbo or if you have a 2JZ means absolutely nothing to a girl that isn’t a Rota-hoe or car trash. eg normal decent girls. So putting that big huffer and front mount interfooler on your car, isn’t gonna get you the bitchez. and HellaFlush style…. doesn’t have the wimmin pulling potential that the current bandwagoners seem to be convinced that it has.
So you may as well go back to driving a ‘normal’ car and hit the gym if your main goal in life is to get amongst the clunge. I expect the sales of the humble Toyota Corolla/Prius to increase DRASTICALLY after the world reads this post…… wait…. what’s that saying on all the Tui Beer billboards?
