2004 Hyundai Tiburon vs. 199? Civic Ex coupe
« on: December 19, 2010, 11:34:25 PM »
Driving home from work today. While driving, I pull up next to this guy's Civic at a stop light. From the back, I can see the Ex badges. On the side, it has V-Tec stickers all over. OH! And did I mention he did a tail-pipe delete? That's right. NO tailpipes. So here's the lowdown.

My Tiburon: Bone Stock bar a catback exhaust.

Shitbox Ex: bone stock bar a tailpipe delete.

He throws me a fart... I mean rev. I rev back. Made him look stupid with my lower tone and louder rumble. Light turns green. I floor it. He floors it. From first gear, he stays close to me a little. My car shifts in to second and I pulled ahead of him bad. He never caught up after that. When I make it to about 50 mph, I slow down since the speed limit is 35. He thought it was necessary to pull a ricer fly-by. Farting all along the way.

No no I'm not trolling bro.  Believe me, it's just that I, along with most other people, have never heard a relatively stock 4cyl that doesn't sound farty.  This is coming from a guy who likes Hondas, and drives a Prelude, which some would say "doesn't sound farty like a civic."

Turd-burden? I don't go around saying my car is the fastest thing in the world. Tibbys are slow I know this. But they are far from shitboxes. At least I don't drive a civic with a carbon fiber wing that I think gives me +300 HP due to the extra downforce.

I must look fucking retarded seeing a 26 almost 27 year old get out of that fucking car like its some sort of fucking ferrari.    :lol: 



:drivin: :jim:  8)

But the worst thing is people still give that shitbox props on the street!  "Nice car man!"  Really????  Or the guy in a corvette somehow not being that surprised that he lost badly to me.

Whenever I see a car like yours that has had obvious performance work done to it (i;e the 5-bolt right off the bat) I always try to give them credit for it.  There's a two-tone black and white EG hatch around here, somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 whp.  I ended up running in to the guy one day at a gas station, and started talking to him solely based on HIS 5-bolt conversion.  When you see something like that on a car that looks like a "shitbox" you just KNOW dude is doing things the right way.

Oh... and my Accord sounds like a fart, too.

Not making another thread but I have another kill (in this case killed) story.

I spotted one of my dad's buddies on the road in his 1979 Pontiac Trans Am with a big block 400 in it. The car itself is a rust bucket as he invested all the money on performance internals. He was ahead of me on the hi-way. (I was coming home from work about 2 AM). I end up next to him along the way and he revs hard at me. I of course didn't want to race. My car didn't stand a chance at all. He revs again. I figure since he is my father's friend and this was all in good fun. (He knew my car wasn't gonna stand a chance. He just always picks on me. Been doing it for 19 years) We slow down from 65 to 60 and he honks at me three times and we floor it. He pulls ahead right off the bat and I never gain up to him. He disappears as I take the exit and head home.
