CRV/Jaaag

It's fast.
It's loud.
It's not massively safe.
Your mother won't like it.
Your significant other's mother will hate both it and you.

That has to be cool.

BTW, the gold car isn't a highboy. A highboy is has the body plonked on top of the chassis where Mr Ford put them but with the wings and running boards thrown away.

The gold car is channelled. Hot rod speak for cutting slots in the body so it can be dropped over the chassis for a lower sleeker look.

I'm not sure but go on, that has just about swung it. The rest of your post almost punted it back over the fence.

+ It's oddball and crazy enough to just be cool.
- You look odd and crazy in one. Take a wobble on the wild side granddad.

+1 on the seriously uncool. Loads of that sort of stuff licking about in the states, and over here, only a [email protected] would have one.

Thank goodness you included "American". I thought you were talking about me and at least half of the regulars for a minute.
