Saturday we ran across the local STi imposter : 04 WRB wrx with STi wing/trunk.
That wasnt that wierd...
Today comin back from the dayton mall area on springboro & Alex bell, i saw what appeared to be an Italian exotic. I couldnt recognize it from 4 cars back, only the bright red paint. He turned east on alex bell, and i followed... definetly a carbeurated V8 and very very stinky too. We get another light, and im directly behind him. as my ears and nose detected it was a pathetic excuse of a kit car.
the center mounted rear exhaust pipes werent even emitting noise, and he had a "Ferrari" logo on the back, just the word, no horse. The tail lights were directly off the 96 model vette, and the the wheels were huge and chrome. It rattled and thumped like a conversion van with an exhaust leak.
I gave him a little rumble and backfire from behind, but he wouldnt return audio.
Its cool if you build a kit car, but dont try to make it out to be somethin its not. I was so dissapointed i gave him a big thumbs down, as i sat next to him in the turn lane.
too bad i didnt have a camera...
To me its no different than one of those Lebaron > Benz coversions... its soooooo trashy!
