[QUOTE=EDDY TT;29156111]Nope, all cobra's should come with the default mustang badge which is the horse. The cobra is the same one they use on the 07 shelby GT 500, it's on the side. Fun fact: the 07 shelby GT 500 only has 450 bhp stock, should have called it the GT 450.[/QUOTE] Yes it may have 450 to the back wheels, but the engine does make 500 horse power at the crank... The ford GT with the same engine makes 550 at the crank..

The Mclaren F1 LM, probably my favorite exotic car of all time, hands down. Haha, never gonna own one for sure, I mean there were like, oh, 5 I think in the world. [img]http://pictures.topspeed.com/IMG/crop/200803/1995-mclaren-f1-lm-3_460x0w.jpg[/img]

[img]http://i1003.photobucket.com/albums/af154/ScrapRodCustoms/RatRodPhoto.jpg[/img] I fuckin' love all ratrods.
I find ratrods unnerving. It's like having a zombie car, they just look like they're ready to fall apart and die.

Don't even get me started on my bobbed ratbike. That thing is an engine with two wheels and kind of steering. Not even a real seat anymore. [editline]14th April 2011[/editline] Really, I jump curbs and speed tables on it and I think stuff comes off each time.
Are those metal deathtraps even street legal?
[QUOTE=adam1172;29164642]Are those metal deathtraps even street legal?[/QUOTE] Yep. A DOT certified frame with a muffler, seat belts, turn signals, tail and brake lights, headlights, and doors = car. Sometimes an emissions test or two. Some countries are more strict, but I've seen ratrods in the UK, Canada, and the Netherlands. Hell, probably more places than that.
I thought UK had strict rust laws?
[QUOTE=bradley;29164960]I thought UK had strict rust laws?[/QUOTE] As long as its not heavy structural rust, I believe its a-okay.

[img]http://www.preludeonline.co.uk/img/wwrs.JPG[/img] This thing looks cool, don't really care what anyone says about gayludes.
The EK9 is awesome looking in my opinion. I like the facelifted version best. [img]http://image.nengun.com/member/29276/1024x768/1-0-pictures012.jpg[/img] [img]http://image.nengun.com/member/25894/1024x768/0-0-meinek9.jpg[/img]

ANY other generation Prelude looks better than that Prelude. ANY. Although, I mean, it's not a terrible looking car. There are definately worse. But if it isn't absolutely clean it may as well be a third gen. Those were amazing.
I think the older Preludes look weird from the back.

They just look strange to me. My cousin used to have a 3rd gen, and it burned oil really bad I guess. He gave it to his sister and it blew up on her. :v: [media]http://www.japanesesportcars.com/galleries/data/media/77/customized-honda-prelude.jpg[/media] That one looks pretty cool, except for the stupid CF lip. Imo [media]http://images.hondatuningmagazine.com/features/0608_ht_02z+esteban_gonzales_2001_acura_integra_type_r+_front_view_hood.jpg[/media] This one looks cooler than any civic I've seen of the same era. [media]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8c/Prelude_4th_gen.jpg[/media] However this stock looking one is ugly.
Third gen 'ludes blow motors like I eat babies ([i]all day, erry day[/i]) The B20A and B21A used a silicate compound material on the cylinder walls and it wore down way too much, can't remember if the rings wore out too fast or the cylinder walls wore down, but they are horrible engines. Best thing they ever did was switch to the F platform (and H, which is the same), it's really too bad that by the time they did that it had lost its cool wedge shape. [editline]15th April 2011[/editline] [img]http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f345/InvaderTrax/prelude001.jpg[/img] First gen is where it's at. The EK1's in these were bulletproof turds.
That's an Integra [img]http://images.hondatuningmagazine.com/features/0608_ht_02z+esteban_gonzales_2001_acura_integra_type_r+_front_view_hood.jpg[/img]
[QUOTE=evilweazel;29154690][img_thumb]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3312/3665931900_b077a253e0.jpg[/img_thumb] This is my first car, well almost the same but mine is a darker red and has a black vinyl top on it. Lots of people say it's ugly but those are the same people who go "LOL SUPRA WITH 12 FOOT WING SO COOL LOL" Gotta get some pics up for you guys one day[/QUOTE] MOPAR for life. 1968 Coronet is my first car in a very odd way. Long story but it's mine. Wish I could drive it daily like you lucky bastard. Small explanation of the coronet ownership. So much drama and confusion behind this car jeez. When my dad had finished with the coronet he was looking for a new car, something lighter and that he could rip apart considering the coronet is a fully restored car. My grandpa had a old 1969 barracuda that he drove forever and it crapped out on him. One day I asked him about the car (I was around 10 at the time) and he said I could have it. I had a blast with the car, I would sit it and run battery after battery dry from running the radio and I would do a dukes of hazard slide across the hood to the driver side. Later on my dad took the car and made it into the sex machine it is now. Having no other car and wanting some involvement in vehicles he gave me the coronet. The car was no junker and it was and still is a very nice car. So over the next 5 years up to now I regularly maintain the car, checking for leaks and cracks and bits of rust. *cough*unlike hellstrike*cough* Sometime this year the car will get going.
Is it now. Herp a derp. Crap you're right. Never seen an Integra with those headlights, and they look the same as the Preludes headlights to me.
