"Someone ripped a spoiler off a vehicle...."
I don't condone vandalism but some of these spoilers are the most stupidest looking things (it was probably on a Honda or Mitsubishi too).
One less the better.

Let's take all the guard rails off our highways. Here we have two cases where the guard rail kept some idiot on the road, where they could have seriously hurt or even killed some innocent person coming in the other direction. Of course the innocent party would have no place to bail out if there is also a guard rail on his side. I'll take being stuck in the cornfield, or even a plunge into a river, rather than a head on collision.

i agree, those spoilers look stupid and most of the cars that have them also have the loud exhaust. too bad the vandal didn't take care of that problem too. I agree, probably a 1995 honda civic with custom taillights, exhaust, sitting about 2 inches off the ground.

You guys make me laugh. Cut someone a break!
When we were kids we had '55 & '57 Chevys..... some later had Camaros, GTOs, Mustangs & Chargers. We had 'off road exhaust'= side pipe headers that ran out under the doors & made plenty of noise! Ours had the nose raised for traction or the rear raised for 'looks'.
Kids today have their 'tooner' cars - Integras, Civics, Eclipses & Celicas. Most are from the '90's & yes, they have tinted windows, spoilers, body kits & exhaust systems. Stereo systems too.
These kids take a lot of pride in their vehicles, work on them constantly & keep them in great shape. There are several car clubs in the area that meet regularly in local parking lots where they stand around, displaying their vehicles & talking cars.
So aside from the (I agree with you) ugly spoilers, what's the dif between now & then?

I agree with you, For What, when we were kids, the louder, the better. I know, I'm the first to admit, I sit on my porch and growl and mumble about the loud, goofy looking cars that travel in our town, but the kids could be doing lots worse than loud cars and LOUD music. And they do keep them looking nice.
Not much dif between then and now!
