today was a good day...

isnt it nice when you introduce a person to a prelude for the first time? at my job there is this guy who drives a camry and one day randomly says to me, " i have a V6, so im faster." i laughed at his stupidity and told him how our ludes with a few tweeks can easily keep with mustangs. (if not beat them). he couldnt agree but that was the end of that. the next day, he parked nxt to me, blasting his crappy stock sound system to some gay rap song, when a camaro rs (the slowest of them all) with an exhaust drove by. to my excitement he said, "oh that thing can smoke you." so i asked him "why do u say that?" he replied "because its loud" (lolololol). i rev my engine with my AEM cai, dc headers and a full custom borla exhaust and tell him, "see, my car is loud too, but thats not what makes it fast." he replied "you should give me ride one of these days". since we were both at work early, i told him to hop in. and as soon as we exited the plaza into the street, that roaring sound of vtec revving at 8K in first gear, made his face look shocked and hilarious as he said "dam this thing is quick." so during that short trip around the streets and a quick highway cruise, he didnt say much, all he did was hold on to that little grip on the passenger side with both hands. afterwards he asked me to open my hood and explain what made the lude so fast. eventually we were late to work and i felt like i changed a soul today. he went from a honda hater to a lude lover. i felt like my job for the day was done. :) so please comment on my story, and share yours of how you converted someone to the lude side of life.

Re: today was a good day...

This friend of yours owns a camry. Therefore any opinions they have on anything even slightly related to cars is totally null and void. But nice story. It's like me telling you about quantum physics, despite me only having read the wikipedia page on it.

Re: today was a good day...

Awesome! My friend was a domestic car guy -_- He absolutely hated Honda's. He drove a Cavalier... He was always saying how his little EcoTech engine would blow mine out of the water because his was 2.2 and automatic. One night, we we're driving home and I managed to line up next to him on our little drag strip. The light turned green and I blew his ass away. Yeah, I'm cool, I raced a Cavalier, lol. The next night he wanted to drive it. So I took him to an empty parking lot and let him loose. Can you guess what his next car will be?

Re: today was a good day...

haha good stories guys. yeah my friend with a 01' buick regal gs (supercharged) with an aftermarket pulley system thought he would be a hard ass and talk some mess. i had just got my jdmh22 swap and he thought he could walk on me. haha we raced from a 20mph roll and once vtec kicked in i started pullin on him. you should have seen his face. it all boils down to his car being a granny car. lol

Re: today was a good day...

My friend has a 79 trans am with a 350 chevy swap, he thinks his car can walk on mine simply because it's a V8. We'll see.

Re: today was a good day...

Good stories. At my job there is this guy with his '00 Oldsmobile that thinks hes got a supermachine so when i got my 'Lude he was like "why u bought that for?" and he kept days makin fun of my 'Lude so one day at 4AM we were almost done at work and i told him to come with me for a ride, he agreed.. my 'Lude is a 92 H23A1 so isnt VTEC but anyways the guy got into the car and when he got out asked me how much i wanted for my car.

Re: today was a good day...

i raced a v8 mustang with some bolts up components this night/morning; sadly it was not a good day and I ended up about a car length behind him. I think I should adjust my valve clearance.
