What is this country coming too? Sometimes as a member of the Australian Defence Force I wonder if the place is worth placing my life in danger for.
agree with you 100% jamie. if i had my way, you would be using these cars for ballistics testing.however, having said that, times change (me / us getting old). i have been as savage as anyone on ricers, but at the end of the day, i suppose the owners are no different (except for lack of taste) in wanting to have a car that stands out.
when i was a lad....all show and no go was bad. but now it is acceptable. i think the change could be down to a couple of things;
1. modern cars perform better than the equivalent cars of 15 years ago (except escorts of course).
2. the new cars are safer than the equivalents of a few years back.
3. when you consider the cost, these cars represent reasonable value for money. it is just funny to see them then spend $20k plus to make it look fast when they could have got an xr or something similar for the same, or less money.
having said all that, i still hate ricers. they look stupid, sound worse and are usually slow. not long to wait though for me and i will have the rs running...and will show these peanuts what a real 2 litre is capable of.
sic em escy....
