Default your opinion of wannabe's

So this morning I was driving in to work and I see a Dodge Ram pulling out onto the road. I slowed down but he would not pas me because he had a white Ram with the Daytona wing on it and the Daytona decals in it.
Now obvisouly this was not a REAL Daytona Ram, mine is, and they only came in the silver or go mango.

I don't have a problem with his wing but I HATE to see those Daytona decals on it because it is not a Daytona. I also seen a yellow quad cab with the Rumble Bee decals on it in Georgia once and that to me is wrong.

So, how do you feel about it?

i completely agree. it is just like base model ford's putting on a lightning emblem or silverado's putting on a SS emblem. it is just dumb. don't try to advertise for something that you don't have or can't afford. thats my .02

I think you can add the accessories and what not that came with those packages, but change up the decals so that they are different

I once saw a Camaro with Z71 badges. Does that count? There's also a lifted F-150 in my area that has F-350 badges on it. Come on now, the bodies are completely different! I think I'm going to head to AutoZone and get me some Type-R badges for my Hemi. What do you think?

copying a design is a form of flattery

now those 5 inch letters across the top of the windshield, that read dodge, chevy, & ford, just irritate the heck out of me, you look out the window of almost any auto parts store & you always see at least one with those stickers
next time watch as the counter guy asks the year, make, model, engine & trans the vehicle has & you always see the customer look out the window to read the words on the windshield, because he can't remember what they drive

Down with the wannabe's, I think it just draws more attention to yourself that you were too cheap to buy the real thing or didnt have the bank roll to afford it. But then again I also think if you have a ton of mods on a vehicle and still are in debt for it, your a fool. So im just harsh.

Having been one myself, don't see a real issue . . . to a certain extent.

I often see copies that look much better than what the factory COULD have done, and actually show exactly what they SHOULD have done.


Although . . . for that one example of what SHOULD have been done, there are about 10 other copies that should be burned to the frame for their lame a$$ attempt.

I am not sure so it could be true but today i saw a First Gen Tacoma that had the iforce badge on the rear next to the 4x4. Again those trucks may come with one but the badge looked out of place.
