Smile king of rice

i am still i shock...the west australian actually showed this idiot and his rice machine....he won top car at the perth auto salon. his choice of wheels was...a corolla. corollas are fine cars if you want a reliable economical shopping trolley, but they are hardly dream cars.

to top it off, this guy has spent $60k on this thing, and it features...a spa bath. i dont know why toyota just dont offer this useful accessory as a factory option....

other cars included an audi a3 done up to look like a '30's gangster car, including whitewalls, a 'mummy returns' rav4 with camels airbrushed on the side (reckon that could look good on the xr )and a mx5 thathad a home cinema (?????) and suspension set up so that it 'danced' in time to music.

may god help us all

Yep, God help us all if everyone was the same and bought boring large 4 door sedans, and dreamt of owning more powerful large 4 door sedans.

Heaven forbid someone wanted to do something different from what anyone else thought they should, people just don't know how to tow the line anymore...................

........and the Falcon is a dream car?

sounds like someone gut cut buy your post regerry, i agree, autosalon was a crock of shit, i paid $1 for every minute i was there, and that was 15 ****ING minutes, there were better cars in the car park to look at.

rice city it was, i thought it would have fords n holdens, n rice, but not ALL rice, there was a VU Maloo on NOS, and VR SS, and that was all. a group of hotted up plastic fantastic excels, that stupid RAV4

it was plain gay, the PSYCHO ute was sposed to be there, but due to insurance probs, was not allowed to enter.

everyone i know who went was not impressed, and several are writting to the organisers about how pathetic it was
