Ram Pride
 
I thought I would share this moment of Karma with my new Ram Family!

I was heading into work a while back, and all of the sudden out of no where comes these two riced out tuner cars zipping along. Obviously they were racing each other. Anyways, the speed limit is 45 and I was already putting my foot into and cruising along at about 55 so these guys had to have been doing at least 65. It was some tin can POS Honda Prelude and a really ugly red Ecplipse with a coffee can muffler, a spoiler big enough for an airplane, and some shiney new rims. So these guys come up on me and go into the turn lane to pass me and cut me off at the light. Good thing I have new brakes! I'm pissed off at this point and when we take off from the light I stay right up with them and guess what? These jerks are headed to Boeing too! We come around a blind corner and there is a HUGE pothole right at the end of it before the turn into the parking lot. BANG BANG BANG we all hit the pot hole. It even made me nervous! So we park, get out of our vehicles. I check on Stella (my truck) and I'm alllll goooodd! I look over at the Prelude and dude has a flat tire! Haha. Sweet. Next thing I know his little buddy comes up to him and says, "Dude, I bent my rim!" :hah:

Ah yes, Karma is a B**CH! I love my Ram! :smileup:

Gotta love it! Coffee can muffler...that was good....My husband and I call em' p.o'ed bees in a can. Maybe now they'll buy American? Or at least Dodges!

Great story 07......damn little rice rockets anyway!! Glad Stella came through like a champ! :D

sweet... even though I also own one of those rice rockets... I don't have a "fart can" on the exhaust though... so far the car is totally stock ('08 Civic Si), been spending all my cash on mods for the Ram.... of course just bought the wife a new Challenger... so there's a new source for mods money

Exco

I like the SI.. I just hate it when these guys think that their car is fast because they put a carbon fiber hood on it. Hehe. I had an RSX Type S before my Dodge. A Little 6 Speed. It was fun to drive. Sadly, I think Acura stopped making them because they came out with the SI and didn't want the competition between the two of them, and Acura went to the full Luxury class instead of Nearly Luxury. So, I'm not a "ricer-burner" hater, and I've owned them too. Its more like an irritation of idiot drivers. Let me know whatcha do for the SI later though!

Partly true, also the official reason for dropping the RSX was the fact that the TSX was kickin' it's butt sales-wise. I have a couple of rice-burners in the garage, a 97 Miata and a 88 RX7 convertible. Love 'em both, and I even had a 04 RX8 for a daily driver. I quickly realized you could actually have too many sports cars and ditched the RX8 in favor of the Ram. I haven't looked back not once. Sometimes, you just need to drive a truck. Obviously 07 here gives us a shining example of just that!

When I was in my 20's I always wanted an RSX, Prelude, or Eclipse. They were good looking sporty cars. But I would have never made them sound like shit with those crappy exhausts and put those ridiculous 747 sized spoilers.

Ah yes, the RX7. My dad had an 88 RX7.. says he misses that car everyday. He got rid of it because I was born. Haha. Yikes. Maybe I'll buy him a little project RX7 one day to play with.
