Found myself behind one of those "Rice Rockets" the other day.



You know, some sort of lozenge shaped Japanese car with a silly thing on the muffler to make it sound bad. Only makes 'em sound silly, like a kid with playin' cards pinned to the frame of his bike, only he's goin' 60 miles an hour.

My eyes were drawn to the bumper, where he'd placed some sort of Asian calligraphy. You know, you see that a lot these days.



Only, with a closer look...



I found I could easily decipher the foreign images. Yea. It's pretty clear what he's talkin' about. Universal language, I guess.

I sit at red lights and shake my head at kids these days...they have no clue what a "bad ass car" is or what they should sound like.

Like every other idea and ideal in this country, they've all been brainwashed!

There ain't a sowing machine in this world that can ever sound like the sixties!

Yeah, I'm stuck in time, I suppose, but by God I'm thankful my memories are still free to remember sounds that are "bad ass"!

You're not stuck in time. You just know what's good, and you're not alone. I hear the real thing all the time around here, with some soldier drivin' an old Camarro or somethin'. I hear the real thing more often now because of the new Mustangs and stuff comin' out.

I look at my home town where I remember teen-agers saving up their bucks to buy a sports-car, and it was spotless.

Now you just see kids driving a pick-up truck or some piece of shit sedan. What happened to the hot rod?

Funny pics on the bumper there!

Whatever else was going on, he got the Asian calligraphy right!

These "kids" think they invented the 4-inch exhaust, huh?

We used to cut 'em out of junked drive shafts, and use 'em as header pipes already YEARS ago!

(I still do---they fit PERFECTLY on a lot of antique tractors, especially the old John-Deeres...!)

The "Race Cars" are funny, the "porn" even funnier....

There's a muscle car in my future, some day. I'll do it up right!

With all the Asian food you consume you'd think you'd be a big supporter of the Jap car lines. LOL

Those symbols are pretty cool. Maybe I should get 'em for the bumper of my Honda Pilot.

Chuck - I do drive one, and those stickers were hilarious.

I didn't see that coming. That's funny.
