If you're gonna have one, shift it! I hate being behind some yahoo in a Honda Civic in traffic that doesn't want to shift to second and then stop again, so he crreeeeeeeps along the freeway at 5 mph while the rest of the traffic is doing 10 or 20 mph. (Just fast enough that you can't pull out and get around the idiot.)
Or they think it sounds good with them stupid little rice crackin pipes on there wound out to 3000 rpm. Buy a real truck....Dodge....360ci with straight pipes no mufflers at all.....that sounds good. Like mine.
Bill you sound like my dad. Someone gets in front of us and they slow way down we get right on their ass so when they look in their mirror all they see is the nice Dodge Ram logo in their mirror. They usually speed up after that!!
Well actually I was referring to the American habit of, I'm bigger,better,more important,faster,less impatient, I am a republican,democratic, have bigger; gun, penis,house, so get outa my way attitude than to what kind of car you drive.. and whiskas mate an unmuffled 360 cubie truck would not be allowed in most western countries, due not only to benzine poisoning but that the rest of the educated world is actually trying to reduce poison emisson,s into the atmosphere.. Gee which major western country won't sign the accord ? I'll give ya a guess its the biggest polluter of the Earths enviroment and the worst country for recycling????????
By the way any fugger follows up my arse on the road gets the bore of a .44 or a 1 million candlelight spotlight in the eyes
KIWI, don't get me started. First,there is no doubt that there are assholes in this country, I quess New Zealand doesn't have any. Second, that 360 cubie, has a CATALAYC CONVERTOR just like the law says, it just doesn't have mufflers. Third, your right we won't sign the accord, and we may have the worst recycling record. We have MORE, we make MORE products than any other country in the world. Including YOURS. We don't want to give our country up to a bunch of outside socialist and tree huggers that are fighting to get IN here. Most of them as refugees from their own countries, because they gave up all there rights and freedoms. Fourth and final thought, I don't point guns at objects that I don't intend to shoot, or intentionaly blind someone with a spotlight, trying to cause an accident cause they ran up on my ARSE. I just pull over and give em the finger on the way past. Just my thoughts there MATE.
New Zealand and educated industrialized country.....LOL.
Yeah, I think your post was a little contradictory, Kiwi. On the one hand, we're assholes for following too close, but you threaten them with a gun or blind them with a spotlight?
I am not sure I buy that whole "the US is the worst polluter in the wrold" opinion. I've been to a lot of places, and most of them have no pollution control in place. Isn't Mexico City the smoggiest city in the world? I know when I was in Asia, it was a rare jeepney, auto, bus, moped or motorcycle that wasn't smoking like crazy. Plus the refuse burning....
By the way, I have both an F-350 4x4 Super Duty Crewcab and a Honda Civic. When a big ol' truck gets on my butt, I just go slower, and slower, and slower. While showing which side he can pass on with my middle finger. I have thoroughlyembarassed my kids by doing 10 mph on the freeway just 'cuz an idiot wanted to play games. But once he passes me, I let 'em go - I don't play the speed up, slow down game.
YOU know what I hate ? It's guys and Bright lights... Suns-o-beatches have there lights on and I do the Courtasry "Flash back" and they don't dim it.... I then turn on my brights .... Leave thenm on, And go into their lane... You'd be amaised how fast they dim their lights
Thats way better then Spotlighting them
Either that or I take out my JIMMY (LIKE Kiwi said) and push their car over
Hate to say it guys, but Kiwi has a point. Nobody swaggers like the American male. Take it from a female who has seen a bit of the world. Thing is y'all don't care. You just boast about your braggadocio and swaggar some more. We are a nation that is proud to be proud.
BTW Kiwi why do you have a spotlight on your vehicle? You night hunting roos or something?
The Kiwi may be right. Maybe it is from all those nights pondering the Southern Cross. During all this "Blackout" think in NYC and Cleveland, there was some stat quoted on the news, something like "The average American uses 12000 KW of electricity per year, and the rest of the industrialized world uses 2200 KW.
A friend of mine's 16 year old, wants to buy a "body kit" for his 2001 Mitsubishi "something or 'nother". It is actually a pretty fun car to drive, and I was suprised how quick it was. The Body kit will be $3000 including the paint. Seems like a huge bucket of money, just to say "mine's bigger".
