I am bored at work, so forgive me if I go astray...
I was thinking about cars, because that's what I do from time to time. A picture from Speedhunters of a Miata modded to be a coupe popped up on my monitor as the background. It got me thinking, it seems I like to look at modded cars more. I have an interest in modified cars over stock, unmolested cars.
Now some cars should just not be touched. Aston Martins, Jaaaaaaags, and some other cars. Sure they look okay tastefully done, but almost 100% of the time, they are beautiful right out of the gate.
But then what about cars that are modified for function? Race cars? I guess they would fall under a different area in my brain. They are usually beautiful cars to begin with, but are tweaked to survive on the track. I guess they are modified too, but in a different way perhaps?
But I guess the Ricky Racer in me just won't die. I like modified cars. I just still want them to be functional, so no horrible camber for me thank you very much.
Hell, I will be getting a Lexus LS as my next daily driver at some point. I am all ready beginning to look at modifications for it. Body kits, exhaust, wheels, suspension of some sort...
Now I can appreciate the clean lines of a stock car. Or even the classics. Hell, I am a car guy!
Or even American classic muscle...
But I will always have a spot in my heart for something modified.
So where do you sit? There isn't a right/wrong answer, and honestly, I really don't care. :-) I'm just asking to see a discussion because I'm bored and have not written anything on Oppo in awhile.
