The part I really do not understand (I have spent countless hours pondering this) is when I see tricked-out piece of shit cars. Yesterday I saw a mid-80's Honda that looked (and sounded) like it was about to die, but appeared to have brand new wheels and a spoiler. Last week I saw a tricked out Kia (maybe it was a Daewoo) with a fit-for-Tokyo-Drift paint job, spoiler, and neon lights underneath. Hello? Couldn't these people take all of the money they spent on tricking-out (upgrading?) and bought a better (safer / more reliable) automobile?
I understand the idea of wanting to be cool... I still buy from time to time stupid things to be cool (not a car) - but are Kia's and Daewoo's really "cool" cars? Does your mid-80's Honda really need new wheels and spoiler, or maybe you should spend the money on a new engine? Shouldn't you just save your pennies and buy a better car? I would.
This really is a Daewoo.
