Personally, I think if the manufacturer, or even an individual finds a way of improving the looks of any of their models, I don't see the harm in it. :eusa-think:

again biggyrick and mrizzle I just think we have different takes on cool cars e.g. my vette has tuning parts I would bet you would have to google to know it even exists (harmonic balancer anyone?) which takes it up to circa 500BHP while retaining a totally stock exterior ie not a wrap or quad exhaust in sight
it doesn't mean I'm right or your wrong
I just still struggle with "look a like" cars and while I realise its a popular route for manufacturers to follow it doesn't mean I have to think its right or that I have to change my opinion that the people who drive them are a little sad!


I disagree again (though I am little unsure quite why I am being dragged into this). I think a lot of cars are awesome for a whole range of different reasons. It may be looks, it may be performance, it may be innovation. It depends on the car and I can appreciate a lot of different cars for a lot of different reasons. I understand that you have a classic Corvette (a car which I told you I have always thought cool when you first joined) but let's have a little look at what Corvette are doing with their styling today...

Image

Notice anything? ;) Oh...and yup, I think that these are cool too.

Now, I'm being flippant and I'm honestly not baiting (although I actually do know exactly what a harmonic balancer does to reduce vibration...and nope I didn't even need Google, my Uncle builds hot rods in Houston in his spare time...genuinely) and I would genuinely love to learn more about some of the sleeper cars that you have built. However, I would argue that any mainstream production car is technically lookalike. Styling kits be it manufacturer approved or fitted are part of what personalises a car...admittedly they can be atrocious in my eyes but I don't think anyone should be shamed by wanting to make their car as visually appealing (to them) as they wish or their budget allows. Interested by your views though and I hope that my post doesn't sound antagonistic because I don't intend it to. It's sometimes hard to convey properly on a forum.

Oh...for the record, I currently have twin Remus exhausts...and I think that they're cool and I have absolutely no intentions to change them.

Hi mdrizzle I think we know each other well enough to know that a slight disagreement in outlook doesn't not mean we should spent the rest of our time on the forum throwing hand grenades at each other a good and well constructed post my man!

I laughed too. Gentlemen, I'm not easily offended and don't really get flustered by a bit of niggle.
