How about putting "Light Speed - Ridiculous Speed - Ludicrous Speed" around your speedometer?

Heh, I got Evander's home address and phone number from a picture he posted of a dead family cat.

Yeah, after he had beaten it to death with a shovel, the sick bastard.

My car (a black 99 Chevy Cavalier, sadly automatic) has a plushie Cthulhu in the back window. At some point, it will also have a sticker that says "WARNING: This car protected by MADNESS."
Actually, I'd think it was really cool if I saw Jesus in my icecream too. A tyrannosaur in an F14 would be even cooler.

Baillie... The odd way of spelling it... Should I be scared that you know that?

I'll see if I can get any 'Type R' stickers from Halfords, that would rule...

That's slightly surprising.




I always pegged Evander for the type to toss the cat in the microwave while it was still alive.

Exactly the same as the other spellings... "bay-lee"...

I had an idea for stickers on the back of the car... Instead of getting a "Type R" sticker, I'll try and get as many as I can... So it can be a 'Fiesta Turbo GTi NOS Type-R" or something equally ricockulous...

You know those obnoxious white 700 pt. letters that people get on the very top of their windshield stating that they are italian, think they're a stud, or declare that the honda civic is in fact a honda civic? Get a line that says something like 'Ferrari' or 'Viper' or the 'Car-inator.'

I really hate those, but I think it'd be funny as hell.

Those red buttons are awsome. You should try and put one on the gear stick as in Goldfinger

Listen to this man.


You may also want to have a button that says "Super Puirsuit mode" as well as some LEDs in your cockpit.
Would be a good reason to take out the ol' soldering iron, I love every excuse to do that.


And you need a Image in your rear window.

From our good friend Ray:
Ray wrote:I think I know what you are saying. You want to trick out your small reasonable car but not in the regular way that the “rice rocket” guys do, all with anodized caps on their Enki rims and clear tail lights which should actually be red. You have a car and you would like to be proud of it, because it is a major possession and shows the outside world what and who you are.

Like a lot of healers will tell you, the most important changes come from within. Upgrade your sound system with some mega-nasty 9” Alpine ovals and 4” door cones – that should be enough response to fill your particular vehicle. After you do that, have the entire interior detailed, and I mean detailed. I’m talkin’ about guys Armor-Allin’ even the bottom surfaces of your A/C grates, and Windexing your odometer pane. You’ll be surprised at how good a freshly detailed car can make you feel.

After you have got the interior all kicked and crunked, have the body detailed. One of the greatest details is the tires. Shiny Armor-Alled rubber is one thing, but going the extra mile and removing brake dust from the rims is the whole game. You see, every time you hit the brakes your brake pads release dust, much like a pencil eraser when you erase a mistake which you made. This dust collects on your silver rims and looks hella low-class.

I guess basically I’m just telling you to clean your car and put some speakers in it. Maybe if you wanted to go the extra mile you’d just accentuate it a little bit with a decal of Calvin peeing onto an icon which represents a concept that you do not enjoy. Pat has one of Calvin peeing onto Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Samoza.

And the rust is the only thing keeping the engine in.
