A "nice muffler" and ground effects generally does not mean it's fast. At least in my locale, it usually means the kid driving it emptied autozone of every doodad they had and got the loudest fart muffler they could afford welded or clamped to the 1 7/8" pipe feeding it. Ugly, often-unpainted ground effects take the place of curb feelers from the 70's. Their distinctive snapping sound warns the driver that he's the proper distance from the curb, and no speed bump passes unscathed.
