    I just sing to myself and beep the horn creating my own songs when i'm driving my beater. Only one speaker works and the deck is a dial tuneable AM/FM radio unit. :rofl:

    Yeah i can remember a certain solo 2 where i launched the bitch (usually use the parking brake) and well for some reason it didn't fully come off, of course half way through the run i was like, jesus christ this thing snaps the tail out, and of course looked down and was like a hah the p brake, and of course released it fully. Bear in mind i use this car to it full extent in the winter, had two friends actually throw up out the window because the donunts were to fast and well the spinning around got to them.

    God blesh her......

    I guess my winter beater is my 97 Integra GS-R 4 door, but a friend is borrowing it right now and winter's not much of a concern anyhow. :D
