Default OT: Ricers' new love

Damn these days I seen a lot of ricers putting a WRX style hood scoop on their car. The guy one street over drive a new Civic Si with a hood scoop and he drive like an ass. Saw a silver Celica at SFU and it got an enlarge hood scoop as well. The concept of good taste is dead.

Oh no! Not WRX hoodscoops too! I know they've been doing it for years with RS hoodscoops.

Imitation is the best form of flattery, so I say you should feel damn flattered for having a car that people want to imitate.

What does your sister drive? And what purpose is the hoodscoop on her vehicle?

Tora: RS and I know where you going with this. I can't help it if it came with the car. I ain't going to waste money getting a TS hood. At least the car looks right not like those other cars. It's one thing to if your car look like a different trim level but it's another thing to make your car look like another brand.

Ahh...but it is still rice factor. Lots of useless hoodscoops, whether they came from the factory or not are ricey...IMO. Anyways, WHO CARES! I'm happy if therre are a bunch of dweebs driving around with air induction scoops case they just make my plain jane family wagon look better!

Well I could fix the problem by getting a USDM STi conversion done to my sister's RS, but I don't got the money.

Speaking of which,

Hey tora, you got any extra hoodscoops/roofscoops sitting around? I've got this great idea for a crazy lookking induction system on my car. You should totally see the vinyls I just got on the g-ride too man! Think leopard print, but chrome!

BTW: don't worry people, it'll be the dopest rizide evAr after it's finished and I'm done with driving my moms' camry.

Here is a tastefully done custom hood scoop. Almost as big as the STi's.
