View Full Version : Type R for $8.99?
06-28-2001, 12:53 AM
I went to auto Zone to get the plugs, Plug wires and a fuel filter and I went by the Shifters and all that other crap and what did I see? Type R emblems for $8.99. Now even Auto Zone has turned to rice.:( They were even in all different colors so you could match your rice burner. But It was a high quality emblem than I have seen on some "Type R" Prelude with a Supra wing and None VTEC engine, I will give them that. At least they are making a quality product.:P I thought about making my Saturn a Type R because I thought that would be pretty funny, but then I realized that that would be rice and not funny at all.

A sticker will NOT make you car faster!!!.......if you stick it on the wrong place!! :D

If you stick it over the regular emblems it makes it go super fast, and saying "NOS" alot also makes your car go faster. Also alot of GotNOS? stickers make you feel like you've got NOS in your car which allows you to beat M3's and Vipers.

Don't forget to pick up your "Eye-Burn Yellow" or "Nuclear Meltdown Orange" paint while you're there - after all, that Supra in TFATF (hey, I like that acronym) wouldn't have been half as fast without that retina-searing paint job. Oh, and I think I've decided against putting nitrous in my car simply because of that movie...

Yeah, I'd love to stick a Type R sticker on my '92 Geo Tracker.
But I'm scared someone would think I was a semi-serious ricer, and miss the irony entirely.
When your fad has become so outrageous that there's no room left for irony, it's time to give it up!

Well, why did I waste my breath (typing) tellin' you other reasons... I should've just said... "Go see TFATF" end of case.
vroom vroom... rooma zoom zoom... SPEEDBUGGY!
Heheheh, yeah, I know...
See, I usually figure that technical details can always be worked around or fixed by some kind of upgrade. Image is a lot harder to change...
I knew NOS was associated with riceboys, but I'd forgotten exactly how much until I saw that movie. I wonder how much they paid to get their name plastered all over EVERYTHING? You realize that they're trying to make their name synonomous with NO2? So when you think of nitrous, it's their brand name, like Kleenex tissues or a Frisbee flying disc. Pretty damn good marketing ploy.

guy, wait up... you can still do that with the Type-R emblem... I've gotta 96 Prizm, and heres what I'm thinking...
Everywhere you place an emblem, place a small black sticker that has a "tail" that points to the emblem (like when they write text in cartoons, the text box points at the person speaking).
(obviously you need to do this on your computer, and print it on magnetic labels or something)
Then put stuff on it like "This Type-R emblem makes my car 2.5 times faster than your car!" and stuff like that ;)
get my drift?

You could also opt for one of the Calvin dudes pissing on the Type R emblem! That would be good for me to put on my car! :)
