:mad2: WTF?ComposiMo said:Oh, and don't listen to the "dryer hose" folks... if everyone had that mentality with everything, we'd all be driving around in peices of [crap] with no paint, no ac, no power, nothing that looks good, and living in a beat-down trailer park somewhere in bum-fudge arkansas (no offense to peeps in arkansas, it was just the first state that popped to mind... haha!)...
Quite frankly, i personally like things to look good as well, and if that costs a little bit of extra $$, then so be it... and honestly, i wish more people felt the same way... especially about their daily drivers. I mean, if it was a dedicated race car, that'd be one thing i guess (leaning more towards the "form over function" crowd), but even full-out racecars strive to look good and well engineered, not ghetto-rigged.
Ok sure.ComposiMo said:Yea, i figured that'd get a nice reply... :lol:
