Re: Rice-Hondas worthless?
selling a used car to a scrap yard for $50 is going to be there punishment for spending un-godly ammounts of money making their cars look ugly and unoriginal, and making themselves look like clowns for trying to make economy cars into race cars.

Hopefully, by that time the rice trend will have disappeared...Seems to me that there will be a lot of cars heading directly to the scrap yard, as it will most likely be uneconomical to stip that nasty body kit, replace "JDM" parts with the correct unit, and bring the interior back to stock....
just my $.02 since i usually fuc|< around and race all the honda guys by my house... and usually win.

No dealer will buy mine...
Ive put too many modifications on mine that the most a dealer could offer is $8,000. "Its too hard to sell".
You right though, if you can find the right person...you could get what you are asking for. But something tells me that no one will give me he $20,000+ my car is "worth" after the bumber, winch, exhaust, suspension, and all the crap on the inside.
Im gonna drive mine for another 5-7 years, then give it to some scrawny teenager like I was (well im still scrawny, but not a teenager).
As far as ricing though...I think its fine. Id rather jack up a Tacoma or a jeep, but most kids cant afford to do much besides go to PepBoys and buy a bunch of cheap lighting accesories. If it interests them, and it keeps them busy...go for it. i dont know how much money i wasted on 4mb of ram and 540mb hard drives when I was 16. Basically, I prolly dropped as much as they did on their car as I did on comp parts. Atleast, they have something to show...Ive got a box full of worthless crap. Anyone wanna buy 4mb of ram for $100? Its really fast...hahaha!
