Why the **** people have crooked window decals and stuffed animals hanging from their cars?

Jesus... I'm starting to miss LED windshield sprayer nozzles and altezza tail lights.

those are the ones we all notice. does anyone in fact know (google search, maybe the internet knows) per cent of cars with large decals/animals?

my hellas are flat black, no slam, no tint. That being said and being a sticker whore maybe 30 decals on the back bumper (not a one sideways).

cause it's america.

I assume you mean you took a break from the car modding scene because I really don't see how you could not drive or ride in a car for six years.

To answer your question, it's always about the kids whose Id is stronger than their Super-ego.

I don't get the sticker obsession the new crop of Subaru owners have either. Crooked or not, looks stupid to me ... Maybe I'm just officially old now.

I've seen people hanging... What I think are referred to as domokuns from the bottoms of their cars, I get a good chuckle out of this, but no idea why it's done.

I must live near smart people, the only iffy subbies around here are the ones that have been uber slammed or drive through traffic like its a time trial.

Anywhere near south Florida and you have kids who think changing a muffler tip is a 30 hp mod, or that a bulky body kit adds better "aerodynamics".

I think it is dumb but all the civics hang **** from their car because it means they want to race. And they keep doing it knowing 1) it is illegal and 2) cops know about it and will pull you over if they see it.

At least the reversed "drift" stickers really never caught on. For some reason, I rage over those.

That reminds me, some douche in Jax with a cobalt ss was flooring it around and cutting people off in rush hour traffic the other day - these types make me mad. They put themselves and others at risk because they think its cool???

Also +1 on sideways stickers being a drift thang. When I did roll 240, people in that crowd rocked it like a necessity. Not for me.

Congrats on graduating! That is a tremendous accomplishment.

This 'Hellaflush' movement originated in California I believe, around the bay area. I think the negative camber and rolled tires part is derived from the VIP cars in Japan, gotta be mad JDM!
I've been told that the stuffed animal is called a 'drift charm' ? FWD Honda's can't drift? It also means you are looking to race other people, kind of like the whole shoes hanging from telephone wires meant they sell drugs there..

This is just a trend that will fade out soon. I'm not into the whole trend thing, because once it's not longer cool, you have to sell your stuff and conform to the new trend.
