Pimped Out.

I don't think that I will ever understand the way some people think.

Today while driving downtown I saw a totally customized car. It had tinted windows, skinny rims, racing seats, a glass-pack muffler and what looked like some big subs in the back seat.

All in a silver, 1996 4-door Chevy Caviler.

What's the point?
I thought the idea of "Pimping Out" your performance car was the fact that it's a performance car. It's not a family wagon. I thought the stupidest car I had ever seen was a Hyundai Pony with a spoiler and a hood scoop - and it was - until today.

I wanted to ask the guy what he was trying to tell people by tricking out his car that way. Is he trying to say he's a bad-ass, but a responsible bad-ass? Or is he trying to tell everyone that he is so cool, that anyone who wants to ride in his car has their own door for optimum access to coolness?

It's just sad.

If anyone ever sees me putting spinners and spoilers on the trusty Santa Fe, just stop and shoot me.
