Default Why do kids who drive Civics think they are driving race cars?

A 14 second 1/4 mile time is nothing to brag about, especially since you car is heavily modified.

i think that most kids regardless of what they are driving think its a race car....just parents tend to buy more civics because they are cheap and pretty reliable and good on gas

What is a cool car is very subjective and depends on who you ask. To a 16 yr old kid making min. wage at a part time job a Civic is a very cool car cause it is cheap to buy and cheap to modify.Ask someone who is much older and has much more money and they would tell you a sports car is a Porsche or Ferrari.

Stupidity is the only thing I can think of. But they sure have a million excuses when there little ricer cars loses to a real car. Trouble is it's not just kids.There are soom older people that should just know better. But on the good side not all kids waste there time on ricer junk. How Honda's can be cool is a big question.

why? it's because civics that are heavily modified ARE race cars. Honda civics are the best: cheap, reliable, fast, easily modified. age doesn't matter when it comes to owning and using civics :-)

The reason why is because Civics have the broadest amount of accessories compared to other cars. If you look for modifications for higher models you wont find much. Mostly because they dont need them. But if you look up Civic there are thousands!! Mainly because they are very low horse powered and there is many mods that can be done on them for cheaper out of pocket expense. Companys make a lot of money off these aftermarket parts. And they are geared towards the cheaper cars. Although I do think some of its a little annoying. Such as the glass pack exhaust systems. Sounds like crap if you ask me. What a waste of money for the whole maybe 5 extra horsepower you might get out of it. dumb!

1) Parents that are inattentive/Naive/even slimes, who brimg up their kids to mimic them/do whatever the hell they want (often suggested by other kids just as bad).2)They want to own/act like all the other 'show off/loser/skip classes in school/put all your money into your car kids.3) It's the ONLY power they have (the car,...showing off WITH the car,...having stupid girls fall for those with 'IN' cars, etc.4) These cars can be accessorized/modified a zillion ways (so everytime the kid adds something, they show of YET AGAIN!

Because the kids with a 14 second 1/4 mile civic is not modded (most likely a base civic) and they just want to think they are fast. a none modded civic Si (now) is about 12 second car and one that is heavily modded is a lot faster than that. So name a 4 cylinder car that is like that, that does not have a turbo?Plus those are the idiot civic drivers that think they can race anyone. I hate those people.
