Yeah, I abandoned that thread shortly after that gentleman's post, mostly because it appeared to be destined for just what you're talking about there...and to his credit, his usage of the "#dropsthemike" hashtag to conclude his reply was a good sign I better hit the eject button while I could.
Actually, now that I think about it, it wasn't the hashtag that convinced me (though that certainly helped!), it was his assertion that merely keeping one's car clean was good enough to prevent errant door dings on your car in a crowded parking lot. :8:
Yep, that statement was made in response to my post where I said I liked to park my Challenger as far away from everyone as I could to avoid door dings, scratches, etc., and that's when he informed me that was unnecessary to do that, I only needed to keep my car clean and people would leave it alone as a result.
And that's the same post BYW in which he dropped the knowledge bomb on me about men and women driving real Challengers, or whatever it was....And then of course, the piece de resistol hats was his decision to conclude that epic reply by just dropping his mike and leaving...not sure where, maybe the Waffle House...or whatever one does after dropping a mike, I don't know, I've never dropped any mikes. :bowdown:
Seriously though, I think it's clear his reply was possibly the best FACE! comeback one could ever hope to come up with in response to some outsider like me slinging insults and chasing their women around while the drive their real cars. Frankly, I'm probably lucky he didn't choose to come after me and beat me down with his vast repertoire of come-backs any more than he did, as I would have surely withered under the suffocating onslaught of modified euphemisms periodically punctuate with worn-out, juvenile hashtags... :bowdown:
Yes sir, I am one lucky hombre - I'm lucky I recognized crazy so quickly and refused to buy any...AHAHAHAHA!!
Depending upon the age of the kid in question, I would opt for the venerable, "Your mom seems to like it just fine!"
But that's only if he were post-HS age though...anything young enough to still be in HS, and I'd be afraid using a mom burn like that could cause some sort of weird trauma to his developing brain, leaving him with some mild neurosis and disturbing sexual compulsions he'd spend the rest of his life paying escorts to act out with him. And I wouldn't want that...
You may laugh at such an absurd statement, but man I've seen it before. Some kids can't handle mom-burns, they just don't have the grey matter to process it in a healthy manner, and it all ends up manifesting itself somewhere else down the line.
Where did I see such horrors?
Well, if you must know, it was back in my younger, more deviant days. I used to have a bumper sticker on the back window of a 2dr Tahoe that said "My Other Ride is Your MOTHER!" Anyway, the truck was literally always covered in mud. So much so that it wasn't uncommon to come out of work some days to find someone had left me a bottle of car wash on the hood as a not-so-subtle hint.
Others were more direct with their approach, like walking up to me at gas station or grocery store and snidely point out how dirty my truck was. I got tired of that, and got the bumper sticker (and kept that window washed off!)
After that, when some jack-wagon would stumble up and point out how my truck looked like I had driven through a septic tank, I could just laugh and point to the sticker and drive away. Dang, it's too bad I didn't have a mike all those times, I could have dropped it as I drove away!!!
Anyway, I started noticing the younger crowd was seemingly incapable of laughing at the implied joke of the sticker's message. They were more interesting in pointing out how I had just slurred their mothers and THEY wouldn't stand for that. I believe the term "disrespect" was bandied about pretty often...:fight:
But, I digest...
I am happy to report that all that bar-fight jack-assery and mom-banging is behind me now, I'm a born-again man for sure!! Ever since Sept. 2011 ironically enough... :icon_cool:
One can only imagine the level of unhappiness in an individuals life that they should feel the need to yell out that the other persons car sucks. And unless they have an obviously equivalent or superior car, then it's just pure spite. I wouldn't even acknowledge, and feel pity at what their life must be like
Just to clarify, I like Chargers, my son drives a '16 R/T.
But let's take a moment to review the man's statement.
As posted by the OP, he said "Chargers suck".
He didn't say "your Charger sucks".
Perhaps he knew that the OP was driving a Challenger and was complementing him on his choice of vehicle, preferring a Challenger over its closest competition. It's all in the interpretation. I'm just sayin'. >
I have the 40 series on my RT and am wanting more volume on acceleration. I am hearing mixed comments about the Super 44s being louder than the 40s. Flowmaster's sound chart has the 10s and then the 40 series listed as louder on the sound chart. Not sure that just going to the 44s is worth the...
Was heading west on the Ohio turnpike this morning heading to Sylvania, which is just west of Toledo. And Toledo is where a number of FCA vehicles pile up occasionally before being loaded onto carriers for delivery to dealers. I passed at least five haulers (all headed east) that had multiple...
I am not able to keep the 426 cool with the stock R/T radiator, in the summer with AC on in traffic it creeps up to 210-215*, 200 when cruising.
I have come across an 2010 SRT radiator that I can get, but it doesn't look that much beefier than the R/T model.
Comparing it to the radiator I have...
Have had a few issues since the installation of Kooks Long Tube headers with High Flow Cats. Had them installed and dyno tuned last fall and really haven't put a whole lot of miles on it since, but now that the weather is a bit better, I am driving it and these codes pop up.
