10 car/truck mods that make people think your an assh0le



Who's guilty here? About all I have are the pillar pods.. But I want instrumentation in my line of site instead of looking inside my glove box

That was funny.

I use the pillar guage pod as well (ONLY two gauges that I HAVE to monitor). Not like those guys who put 5 gauges up there and those would include things like "volt", but exclude things like "boost". Lol.

I have actually had people ask me if my gauges were fake. I just ask them if they would like to race. Lol.

While at the grocery store this afternoon I saw a poor PT Cruiser covered with every shiny plastic trim toy you can imagine.

The fake Buick-style vent holes on the front fender and the obviously non-functional hood scoop were particularly disgusting ...

Re: 10 car/truck mods that make people think your an assh0le

I agree with a lot of things from that website. The A-pillar route certainly seems easy, but hiding things is the way to go IMHO. It was always fun to have people get in my truck (when it was boosted). I'd take them for a ride and they'd say, "What's that sound?" (my subtle re-route BOV).. and I'd go, "Oh... well.." and proceed to open my cigarette tray with EBC inside. I should have put my wideband where the clock is, but then I couldn't have seen it. Damn I miss my turbo. Ugh, can't wait to complete my degree and have a career again.

I'd like to think they are just bored and can't write anything of value, so that's about as good as it gets.
