    i've seen a TA on here where the neon's were very tastefully done. and it looked sick. he even had some in the nostrils on the hood. that was probably the coolest way i've seen them displayed.

    i totally appreciate the work this dude put in to his car. and i still want to know where he got the bags, and how much they ran. cause i really want to put a set on mine.
    im not close minded, but its ok that you think that. im into not mucking things up. there is a school of thought that believes things that arent really needed arent worth getting. sure i can appreciate a good looking set of wheels, but im more interested in how they will benefit my car from a performance stand point, not that wheels do much.

    thats fine if you appreciate the work that someone puts into their car, but in my opinion neons are annoying and unnecessary. i also dont need alot of attention, which is what the majority of appearance mods are designed to do.

    you listed 3 of the 5 things i listed and were in agreeance, so i dont see how i went too far. lambo doors serve absolutely no purpose. so youre going to spend over 2 thousand dollars on a door that swings upward? wow. hooray for america.

    the reason these things are frowned upon is of what they symbolize, which is ricer culture, where the name of the game is to completely trash a car, muck it up, talk so much shit about how fast and cool it is, and get your doors blown off by a completely stock car. ricer culture believes for some reason that all this will improve their cars performance, and when called on it they say some "i want to be individual" shit. its a joke.

    contrary to what you think, alot people who own muscle cars do race and atleast want to go faster. if this wasnt the case there would be no real reason to own a v8 in this day and age. sure some people like to cruise and dont drive these cars daily, but im fairly certain they have go fast parts as well as your appearance mods. anyone who races or likes going fast knows that who ever gets the 1320 the fastest is the way to seperate yourself. every ls1 f body owner can run 13s. not everyone at all can run 11s or 10s and below, so your statement has no truth.

    look at lamborghini, the inspiration for this new craze. their doors are not heavy. those cars are built for speed and luxury which is how they justified the price tag. i could see if this mod made the doors lighter or something, but the doors of an f body are heavy. you will most definetly have sag from the hinges being too weak after a period of time.

    muscle cars are about raw power, atleast to me. you wanna throw some chrome wheels and some tasteful vinyl on then go ahead, but muscle cars have gotten attention for one reason.....power.

    this guys probably got them installed and is happy as hell. As far as 'ricer culture' you could say that about turbos, or superchargers and loud tail pipes. why not include loud paint jobs? 'Ricer culture' is people with no actual knowledge trying to get a reputation and playing car games too much. these kind of people make more professional car people, who happen to prefer import cars, look bad. There are people who have very nice imports and there there are 'ricers'. We have the same kind of people. I can't tell you how many 'fast' mustangs both look like crap and drive like it. and there's always some v6 f-body that looks like it fell off a cliff revving at anything with wheels.

    My question about the Lambo doors is-dont you have to put your hand on the paint to shut it? I wouldnt want my upper door all scratched from shutting it all the time. Or maybe they shut it some other way?

    basically what you're saying is that none of this is necessary. going faster isn't necessary. cause these cars already run 13's. so making them faster, isn't necessary. maybe we should all by ford escorts. cause a car's basic job is to go from point A to point B. that's really all that's necessary.

    and many people, are trying to make these cars faster. trying to lower their times. so essentially, if you're doing the same thing, whether you're running 10's or 11's, you're doing the same thing everyone else is trying to do. there's nothing different about that.

    and these doors arent "that" heavy. they're probably the same weight as the lambo doors. every one says our doors are so heavy. if we were talking third gen cars, yeah, i'd agree with you. those things were made outta metal.

    fourth gen doors are a fiberglass composite or some shit.. they don't "dent" they break.
