Post Real EVO!?

I was in my friends car today crusing up ash and 54th I think? Suddenly my friend was like " wow look at that nice car" I turned and took a look. @ first I was just like.. oh.. its another impreza but when I looked again i saw it was a #$@!%$ mitsu evo.. im not sure if it was real though.. we got out of our car and took a look on the inside to see if it was that fake acura 1.6 everyone was talking about.. didnt really look like an acura on the inside.. Before we could take a closer look, the alarm went screaming! We were like half a meter from the car!!! holy crap!.. i gawt the plate # just incase you guyz know if its real or not..or if uv seen it around.. It had a BC plate.. oh btw.. err.. i think it had a leather interior? so.. acura 1.6 el? hmm..

Didn't we have this very same discussion about two months ago? Same crappy 1.6 EL Acura too.
It amazes me time and time again why people put that kinda cash into crappy cars...

well..the 1.6 is not really that crappy of a car..its basically a civic under acura right??? so its the same as souping up a civic...but thats not the point...souping up cars is a hobby...something a lot of people really enjoy...I mean...if someone like him enjoys doing up cars so passionatly as him...I think that he would rather buy a 24 grand car and spend like 20 grand souping it up...than to buy a porsche boxter or sumthin..thats what I think..its the joy of putting a car together the way you personally like it

Thanks for the info on the EL - Civic connection. But I guess that's not your point.
MY POINT is that taking a CRAPPY FWD car and dumping money into it is a little silly. Not to mention to make it look like a very high performance sports car like the EVO.
I love tinkering as much as the next guy but what this guy has done is a joke.

Yeah man, to a point you should tinker away and enjoy, but replicating one of the worlds most ferocious cars using an acura 1.6 el is just funny.

If you tinker, make your car better than other cars just like it.

Thumbs down

i agree with mel22b and jaimak. It's jus tpure dumb or maybe insecure with what he/she has. You can easily use the money to turbo up the EL to whatever econbox one drives. Say if I spend 23k for a civic or EL and then another 20k to buy parts to make it look like a car it;s not (I wonder what the dealers would say when he brings it in for service....) Id rather use the money and by a used RX-7 for the same money and that extra 10G to fix it up and hte extra 10G for RRSPs. Not only does it look way better than any "I wanna look fast" rice POS. It can outhandle and outrun all of 'em. Not to mention the genuine respect the 3G RX-7 gets.

Worse still is that some hick with a V8 truck that smokes the EVO wannnabe EL and then he goes on to tell ppl how his truck left a AWD supercar in the dust.
