You guys get a lot of attention?

Sup guys,

You guys get a lot of attention while driving the lude? I apparently do whenever I drive it. I don't know if it has to due with the fact that I'm all murdered out or that I'm one of the few modded cars in town, (or I'm Asian driving a Honda lol). Besides that, I get attention like guys pulling up next to me and taking off, revving at a red light, pointing down the road while nodding their head at me, trying to stare at me through my really dark tint lol, edging forward at red lights, all that stuff to make me go at it. I rarely ever go at it because it's not worth it, just normal civics, cavaliers, cobalts (non SS), accords, stuff like that. I went at it a couple times against an SI that lives down the street from me for fun because I knew he wanted to mess around. He always stares at me whenever he drives past and waves or revvs, seems like a friendly guy.

Lets hear your stories!

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

I get alot of Cavaliers, neons, cobalts, civics, accords, integras, and some other rice burners pull up next to me. they try reving and all that fun stuff. usually i just ignore them unless i got a girl in the car which in that case i smoke the **** out of them. sometimes a little burnout before the light turns green but that's only when i had ****ty tires and was waiting to put new ones on. majority of the time i just gets beeps and waves....maybe a nice car or nice whip but that's about it. There is my buddy who has a Mazda 6 and we race down the highway for fun alot...i usually win unless there is traffic becuause i prefer not to wreck but he don't care.

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

Almost never at a red light, usually just on the freeway they'll come up next to me and gas it and drop back again til one of us starts honking. I'm still stock looking though so that filters out a lot of my competition to begin with :P

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

I forgot to mention that I do get a lot of thumbs up, nice car and all that crap. Usually at the gas station or parking lot when that happens. Nobody believes it's a 99 because my car just recently got repainted lol

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

I sometimes get compliments from people at gas stations, in traffic, wherever I'm stopped. then I get the douches too. whenever I give it a little gas to match freeway speed on an entrance, I always get that one tool that will fly past me over a mild down the road thinking I was racing him

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

I get a lot of people complimenting the car. Seems like the Prelude turns a lot of heads, not hating but Civics don't get that kind of love! As far as getting challenged it happens all the time but normally I just smile and keep cruising.

I agree. My Lude turns heads all over the place at school. Especially from the girls! XD

I don't get as much heat from "ricers" as I used to...

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

From the car scene, nothing. My car is apparently not worth noticing. I get a lot of attention from those outside the car world...Especially my friends at college. Im hoping that will change with some mods that I will be doing come July.

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

I get the dirtiest looks when I drive my car. Like you don't even understand people will give me the worst glares ever. I've never had anyone comment on my car unless it was parked and I rarely ever go anyone from a stand still.

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

Not sure if its me being asian driving a honda too haha, but yeah everywhere i go. I get a lot of mustangs, civics, rsxs and tegras wanting to race me. I think its because there aren't alot of preludes here in the sacramento area and the fact my car makes a loud ass noise with headers and exhaust. And of course.. it gets attention from the ladies.

Speaking of attention, I even had a dude in a Prius rev at and took off on me on the way home from work.. I just laughed lol

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

i notice people staring pretty regularly when I'm driving and the occasional passing prelude will wave back to me once in a while, it seems to get a lot more attention since dropping tinting and getting different wheels. never had any toolbags try to race me yet though.

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

Wow.....You see Karma's daily? Nice. Have you heard the noise they make under 25 miles an hour?

I do occasionally get looks from people in traffic, and occasionally someone will have a problem with me passing them or pulling up next to them. Most of the time I just ignore it, but sometimes I have a little fun. People are always surprised when they see the power in these things stock.

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

too many modded cars in nyc that people just dont care. i know get/give attention from/to other prelude owners. there are car meets here every week i try to stay away from all that.

attention = fans
fans = haters
haters = thieves

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

When school was still in (summer vacation now) everyone knew me as the guy who owned the blue prelude that parked alone in the very back, I never got direct attention but my sister said a ton of people would go up to her and ask her if I was the one who owned it. A few chicks here and there, especially this girl that owned a 4th gen beaten to the ground always drooled over my car and her boyfriend that tried to race me in his cougar which I smashed lol. But outside I always get these ricer Civics mean mugging me when they pass by with their windows down or at stoplights. Rarely any of them trying to race though.

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

My car gets a lot of looks due to it's stance and the grenade on my tow hook, lol. I get a lot of people asking about my wheels and get a lot of questions about if I autocross it, and they say the wheel/stance combo makes it look like it came out of a time machine from a 90's race track. LOL

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

Yeah in my 4th gen since they're even more rare in my area.

plus its a little loud, has a dent on the passenger side door, melt spot on one of my headlights, cracked windshield, small ding on trunk, rust on rear quarter panels with a small dent on the passenger quarter panel. It could also be my wheels stand out...205/55/16 and 30 offset Advan AVS VS-6 in white, red Work Emotion tuner lugs.

cliffs: my car is a nice looking, but rare POS in its current state, with a set of nice wheels.

A Prius???? i can't even tell when they are reving because they are so quiet. My favorite has to be the ricer fly bys and at stop lights. there was a civic with a fart can next to me the other day. Naturally he had to start reving it because his girl was in the car.Smoked him. haha he wasn't too happy to say the least.

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

MY 96 has a fart can on it right now. The duece I bought it from had sprayed most of it black and had all kinds of other F***ed up ***t done to it. I've finally got it safe enbough to drive above 120. I get looks all the time because of how loud it is (4-2-1 no cat with 2.5 catback) Not sure what I'm gonna due to the exhaust because as much as I hate the noise it has such great throttle response. It's also funny cuz the car dealership I work at is a Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen, Kia and Mazda dealer so I have to putt around to keep from setting off alarms all over the place. Any body got any suggestions on a moderate tone HIGH FLOW muffler I could switch too?

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

I noticed that I am getting some attention myself with the Prelude I purchased a couple of months ago but more like they are afraid of me when I drive by. It's an auto and I have gotten used to driving it in manual mode and usually getting into vtec territory before shifting, that with my intake make it quite noticeable as it sounds pretty loud. I have gotten a couple of head nods from other Prelude drivers who have their cars modded but not from those who are all stock. I enjoy the attention :)

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

Dude in a camaro couple days ago saw me make a U-turn and straight creeped up behind me with his brights on, switched lanes, and it was on! Dropped down to second.

Racecar.

2 days after I bought it, I found a little note on my windshield from some guy who had just wrecked his civic si, fiendin' to tune somethin'.

Other day, some guy waiting at a perpendicular red light in a truck just honked like 3 times and threw a fist up, like yeah! That one was good.

Another time, dude behind me knew the car (also in a truck) and revved real high. What do I do? Go by instinct and peeled the fukc out, ye!

I do occasionally get looks from people in traffic, and occasionally someone will have a problem with me passing them or pulling up next to them. Most of the time I just ignore it, but sometimes I have a little fun. People are always surprised when they see the power in these things stock.

i work in one of the richest parts of boca raton n lived in boca for 10 years

never heard the sound they make but ill try n get a listen now i know

Re: You guys get a lot of attention?

I get compliments while getting gas.

Assholes in Mustangs, BMW's and boosted cars always trying to race while driving.

Civic and Accord owners rev at me while at stoplights.

And the average weekend night where someone attempts to follow me home and I have to ditch them on a highway or back road....





While the car spends all but 8 days a month parked, I always have random people and kids in my neighborhood coming up to my house asking about it. What's done to it, what I plan to do next, if it's fast, how long i've had it, and they love the car.

Kinda funny when both guys and girls (door to door solicitors) just ask me about the car vs trying to sell me anything. When they realize what they're doing, they just hand me a paper and walk away LOL
