Default Why mod Hondas

Whenever my wife and I go out we usually see at least one Honda that's
been modded out. Sometimes it just has decals, but I've seen custom
rims, under carriage lights, and "bull roarers" (don't know what they're
called) on the tail pipes. That last one is kinda funny, because it
produces such a big sound for such a small car. Any way I was wondering
why these cars are so popular to mod? Also what's your favorite
modification you did on your car?

The next time that you are in a magazine shop, look for a magazine
entitled, Honda Tuning <www.hondatuningmagazine.com>
You will see the best of the modded out Honda cars--especially Civics.
One thing that I hate about most of the newer Honda Accords such as the
1999 Honda Accord are the muffler tips. On many cars made by other
companies--the muffler tips look great but on the Honda Accords--they are
very plain looking.

My favorite modification--you guessed it--
new mufflers and fancy muffler tips.

That's an interesting question. I am not sure, it seems a bit of a
cultural thing. They are known to be moddable, parts are available, the
base car is cheap enough for younger folks, ... the "rice boy syndrome"
is indeed interesting: http://www.riceboypage.com/

| Also what's your favorite modification you did on your car?

Continuously variable speed control for the blower fan (changed the
resistor pack, after one of the resistors blew, with a MOSFET switch and
made a little control box). Boring, I know, but it was a fun electronics
project. Not to mention that I'm too old (and never had any desire) to
put on any "visual mods". I'm glad if my car looks plain so nobody
thinks they need to steal it...

You might want to fix the spelling error in your motto before you buy
any more muffler tips, bud.

Cripes!
It used to be OK. Bill, err, Jason, had it the right way around for a
while.
