Now, putting wheels on your case along with some charged up beefy batteries, wireless network to control the steering - now that's the kind of "case mod for a car" that I could build a beowolf cluster of and it *would* run linux. Hmmmm...

nice magazine, throwaway article (2, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | about 11 years ago | (#5715031)

This is just a silly article from Sport Compact Car [sportcompactcarweb.com]. There are a lot of great sites out there for mods, some of them ridiculous, such as a Delorean pick up. I just found out someone from in a forum I attend that they have a Ford Focus running 436 hp at the wheels. Another person got a s2000 down to 2400 lbs, giving them a 10 lbs/HP ratio with a different air filter being the only power mod. I appreciate the effort but slashdot has never been a great place to talk about cars. It's not hopeless, though. Write up something on the Lotus Elise when it arrives in the U.S. and I'll be pleased. :)

Re:nice magazine, throwaway article (4, Informative)

afidel (530433) | about 11 years ago | (#5715062)

436Hp at the wheels is kind of insane, not as insane as the Hennesey Viper but still crazy. I mean the Sherman tank is only powered by a 400 horesepower engine and it is 32 tons!

Re:nice magazine, throwaway article (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 11 years ago | (#5715086)

436hp at the wheels isn't that insane compared to what's out there. The impressive thing is that it was made using the Focus' 2.0L Zetec, running 26-28 psi. The guy doing it offers the only full fuel/air solution turbo kit [focus-power.com] for the Focus, though there are plenty other FI kits for it that get by with injectors and a chip. I mention his kit because this guy is not full of shit, he really has the power he claims. Oh, and it's still FWD. There is a V8 RWD conversion available for the Focus, though. I would love that.

BTW, I meant a "monster truck" Delorean in my earlier post. I had to write quickly, being an AC and all.

Bah. I'm waiting for Koenigsegg [koenigsegg.com] to come to the U.S. It's a sexy transformer [koenigsegg.com], even just sitting around. The website claims it's the fastest car in production, but I don't care, because I'd never drive it 1/3 that speed. It's just the kind of thing that makes you realize that Ferraris and Porsches are boxy and swollen, and that you don't have to give up the dreams about cars you had as a boy.

It's a freaking super-sized matchbox car [koenigsegg.com] for grownups, and I want one.

P.S. That top? It's removable! I can't find any pictures of it off, however. Just kidding, here's one [koenigsegg.com], though that color scheme is a bit retrograde, and makes that console look too shagadelic for me, with that giant rotary thing in the middle. This one [koenigsegg.com] is better, looks like a spaceship from above, but it's the 2001 model, and I think the shape of the back's changed.

P.P.S. Reminds me of Speed Racer [koenigsegg.com] from the back, too, with the twin cowling thing.

Oh, and according to some wording that seems new since the last time I read the site... they now sell it in the U.S.?!? I was told they weren't cleared here yet, but cool.

P.P.P.S. Yet another thing to make you think Sweden has more dibs on the word "lust" than the Germans. Except it probably costs as much as my parents' house, so I guess that also qualifies as envy :(

I would take a wild guess, and say not many slashdotters are into imports, but that was an article from Sport Compact Car from 2 years ago. It was actually supposed to be a joke, but a good amount of people took it seriously at the time. Sport Compact Car got a lot of hate mail the month after that was published, hah.

Common car mods? (1)

SocialWorm (316263) | about 11 years ago | (#5715042)

Since the article says "Many amateur drag racers stop at simply removing the passenger's seat and spare tire, but we remove everything: headliner, sunroof, carpet, dashboard, six-disc in-dash CD changer." Would I be correct in assuming this sort of thing is actually relatively common?

Or is that part of the humor? :)

Re:Common car mods? (1)

dknj (441802) | about 11 years ago | (#5715063)

Usually they take out the back seat and put a custom shell with some sort of giant lcd or monitor and subwoofers next to it with a vcr, dvd player, or ps2 facing out towards the trunk. Go to import car shows, you'll see what i'm talking about.

Now, my goal is to take my car (95 protege) and put a v6 engine in it. Not to race my car or to 'rice it up', but just to learn about cars in general. I'll post pictures when I start

While I found the article incredibly interesting, it is not really /. material. That said, I enjoyed looking through the piece; it was well thought-out and I certainly thought the pictures were a nice touch. The end result was a spiffy-looking frame (for those of you who didn't bother to follow the link) lacking only in luxuries...as long as you're used to riding a horse and buggy. The final product seemed to be overly square and didn't really strike me as the speed demon it was purported to be.

Of course, this could just be all my imagination, I am crazy, after all.

Interesting that one of the hottest hobbies, took this long to make a slashdot discussion. Modding cars is become such a big thing amongst people with all types of cars. From Neon's to bimmers, people do pretty cool thing to enhance the appearance and performance of their cars. Not all look, perform or sound too hot, but some can be better than any factory car you can get.

Its also a great way to actually learn about how cars are made and produced.

Re:Nissan is Mhz not Ghz! (1)

Skreech (131543) | about 11 years ago | (#5715191)

Look again! They claimed to have a budget of US$0, and from the pictures, that's probably not far off. You'd have to consider the tools though, I think the $0 budget thing shouldn't be taken quite so literally. If the weight of a computer had anything to do with it's performance, using your anology, it'd be like taking all the internals of the 486 and hooking them together on a tabletop in the open. That's not practical, but neither is the end result of these folks' experiment.

What I want to know is, where'd the car come from? What's the real story behind all this? I mean, it didn't look like they cared about the condition of the ground effects kit, which could be sold. Supposedly, it was a perfectly good car... I can't come up with a good excuse about why they'd trash a car like that. Don't get me wrong, I don't cry a single tear for the loss of an '01 Nissan Sentra. But... why? Was tearing it apart as an elaborate joke worth really worth the money they could have sold it for?

G3ckoG33k (647276) | about 11 years ago | (#5715105)

What is a Rice boy? [riceboypage.com]

From the page:
"Rice-Boy is a stereotype. The typical Rice-Boy can be identified by his car, or rather what he does to it. Generally, Rice-Boy will start out with a car that was not meant to go fast (typically a Honda Civic), and attempt to "fix it up," usually consisting of aftermarket rims, lowering springs and an aftermarket exhaust system with a large exhaust tip.

Most Rice-Boy cars (or "Rice Rockets") have the usual complement of stickers proudly displaying features that the car might or might not have, most notably, the Honda VTEC sticker from the later model Preludes, and the plaques from the later model Integras.
"

The similarity with Duron owners pretending to be Cray owners are amusing. Don't miss out on that Rice boy site's Hall of shame!!!

Better with a beetle (5, Interesting)

Trailer Trash (60756) | about 11 years ago | (#5715111)

I did this about 10 years ago with an old VW Beetle that a friend and I bought for $250. Here's the only picture that I have of it:

http://www.michaelchaney.com/beetle/beetle.jpg [michaelchaney.com]

We removed the body, then welded a small frame for the steering column, and used duct tape to attach the speedometer. We welded on a battery holder, and I screwed the voltage regulator, an on/off switch, and a start button to another plate. The gas tank was simply a two gallon plastic tank that we ran the hose into. (not recommended) The last mod was welding the seat to the bottom of the unibody, we didn't bother to add a back, a fact which made driving it a bit more difficult.

Anyway, it's the same idea as this article. My friend and I were going to build a really fast go-kart, and we actually started welding one together. We had an engine, but when we started to buy parts to finish it out, we realized that it was going to cost another few hundred dollars. I decided that it was worthless, since we could buy an old Beetle for less and just remove the extraneous parts.

I personally topped the speedometer out (85MPH) with this configuration, the wind was difficult to deal with since I had no seat back. The acceleration was great, with the extra weight gone it was incredible. Dumb as hell, but incredible. Funny thing was, when my friend and I finished, his father admitted that he'd done the same thing 20 years earlier.

"Case Modding" Donkey Boy (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | about 11 years ago | (#5715123)

So, I'm pretty pissed about having to go to a circus. But my girlfriend Jeanna and her friend Rebecca have been talking about it for weeks. Plus I've been dragging Jeanna out to ball games and I know she can't stand it. I figured... alright I'll go.

My memories of circuses are the same as everyone remembers... animals, clowns, balloons, blah blah, blah. We arrived at the circus in the early evening and toured all of the outside attractions before stepping under the big top. I have to say this particular circus seemed extremely well organized. This being a late Friday night event... the organizers had been advertising it as an over 21 event and even got a hot local band to provide entertainment to try and attract a younger hipper crowd. They did a good job at that. It looked as though the majority of people were of the club hopping age.

As we sauntered through the various isles I lingered behind Jeanna and Rebecca with Becky's boyfriend Charles- or `Chuck' as I called him. He hated that.

"So Chuck... how you like the circus so far?" I asked, not really caring what his answer would be.

"Well I must contend that the organizers have done an excellent job at putting this event together." He answered in his typical clenched jaw fashion as he studied the attractions around us.

"Yeah... I have to agree with you there." I answered as I watched Jeanna and Becky gawking at a poster in front of a tent.

"Hey Guys!' Becky shouted. "C'mere and check this out!"

Charles and I walked over. The poster was an advertisement for the circus' freak show. And, upon further studying I could see why Jeanna and Becky were so interested. Next to that poster was a poster advertising `Golden Rod: The Strongest Man in the World'. He looked to be a handsome muscular man with a mane of gold.

Becky was giggling and pointing at the size of the guy's package as I stepped up to them and said, "Yeah I see why they call him Golden Rod... hehheh."

Jeanna glared back at me, "You know it's always about sex with you!"

Geezuz! She is such a stiff sometimes. She walked down the isle and towards the freak show's entrance to purchase tickets. Becky took Charles by the arm and followed. As they walked away Becky turned and flashed me a wink and a smile. Geezuz! What is she doing with that stiff Charles? You know, Becky's relationship with Chuck is all about his cash flow. The guy showers her with gifts and money. But hell as long as he's getting a piece of Becky ass more power to him. Damn she's fine. Jeanna's close as far as looks- but not near as sexual. I mean I haven't had actual intercourse with Jeanna yet. She's `saving herself'. For What!?!?

Anyway... I slowly followed the group towards the freak show's entrance. I check out the other posters on the way over. There was the `Tallest Man In The World' who coincidentally had the biggest feet in the world. There was `The All New Donkey Boy' half human and half donkey. Finally... I came to a poster I could relate to. `Giganta the Amazon'- she looked to be about six and a half feet tall and amazingly- very attractive. I mean she was beautiful. There was something kind of hard about her features and she was kind of muscular but she had to have at least 48DD's going. What a Rack! I mean maybe they were EE's or GG's. And I am definitely a breast man.

After seeing that, I skipped past the rest of the posters and up to the front of the line. Jeanna handed me my ticket, "So I see you changed your mine?"

"Yeah maybe it looks like fun." I said nonchalantly.

We all stepped through a dark velvet curtain and took our places on a row of bleachers with the rest of the crowd. This tent was actually fairly small and the bleachers looked to seat about 50 people. Over the next few minutes it was filled to capacity. The lights dimmed and a voice came over the loud speaker announcing that the show would start in 10 minutes.

Jeanna looked over to me, "Reggie, go get us some sodas and popcorn before the show starts."

"You know... why couldn't you ask before we sat down..." I complained.

"Charles go with Reg," Becky nudged at Charles.

"Yes Becca-deary," Chuck answered as only he could.

"Oh alright..." I conceded as Chuck and I struggled to get past the crowd sitting next to us on the bleachers.

We made it to the concession stands within the freak show tent and stood in line for the refreshments. I placed our order and looked over to Chuck who instinctively pulled out his wallet to pay. As he was paying I looked down the concession isle and noticed a long row of cages and small stages.

"What's that stuff over there?" I asked the attractive kid behind the counter.

"Those are the freaks sir." She answered back.

"Hey don't call me sir," I snapped backed, "I'm young enough to be your brother."

"Or my boyfriend." She smiled and winked back.

I stood there with a stupid grin on my face as Chuck took the sodas. "Reginold you take the popcorn."

"Hey let's go check out the freaks before we go back." I said to Chuck.

"Becca's popcorn will get cold," Chuck answered as I stepped in front of him.

"Oh c'mon it's gonna take a couple of minutes," I motioned towards the isle.

"I suppose I don't have much of a choice," Chuck turned and headed for the isle of cages as I scooted after him.

"Doesn't look like there's anything over here," I said as we noticed that the cages were all empty. "They must be getting prepped for the show or something."

"Oh look," Chuck said as he motioned towards the end of the isle, "there's something in that cage."

We walked over to the end of the isle. It was a fairly large cage the rims of the cage were decorated with extravagant wood carvings and painted a lacquered red and gold. A sign was displayed in front of the cage reading `Donkey Boy' and `Do Not Feed'.

"Oh, it's just a donkey," said Chuck, clearly frustrated that we walked all this way to see an ass. Chuck turned and began heading back the way we came.

"Ha! Hey there's gotta be something special about this ass," I said jokingly as I peered into the cage. It looked like a normal donkey. I don't where the `Boy' part of Donkey Boy came from.

"Hey," I said to the donkey, "why they call you Donkey Boy?" I asked the question not expecting an answer. I turned to follow Chuck but was stopped dead in my tracks when I heard...

"Cause I can talk."

"Whoa!" I spun around and looked back into the cage. The donkey was starring right at me with what looked to be a grin on his face.

"Hey Chuck!" I called out, "...come and check this out!"

"I haven't the time Reginold," Chuck answered over his shoulder as he headed back towards the bleachers.

"Donkey... did you say that?" I asked the animal as it stood motionless in the cage.

"Do you see anyone else here?" He answered back.

"Holy crap... a talking donkey!" I was amazed.

"What's yer name?" the donkey asked me.

"My name?" I stupidly replied.

"Of course your name dummy who else am I talking to here?" the donkey cracked wise and somehow managed to display a look of annoyance on his face.

"Oh right... heh heh." I laughed nervously as I looked over my shoulder to see that Chuck was nowhere in sight. "I'm Reg or Reggie," I answered.

"Hey Reg... or Reggie," The donkey said, "take a look at this." The donkey stepped to his side displaying one of the largest set of cock and balls I'd ever seen.

"What the hell!" I blurted in disgust. I mean what the hell was this?

"Take a look at that fella..." the donkey said, "that's almost a two-footer."

He was right his cock must've been at least a foot and a half long and his balls were each the size of grapefruits. I froze for a moment in time and in my shock noticed that the thick stiff cock's head was glistening with donkey juice. In a cross-eyed daze I watched a drip form at the bulbous head and fall, almost in slow motion, as it splashed in a small pool underneath him.

I snapped out of it, shaking my head as I noticed that I just squeezed both popcorn containers, spilling most of the popcorn on the floor around me. I turned and headed back to the bleachers past the concession stand where the cute girl called something out to me as I stumbled past in a daze.

When I finally got to the bleachers the show had already started. It was dark and I had a hard time weaving my way through the crowd. I scooted past the seated patrons and finally reached Chuck, Becky and Jeanna. I shuffled past Chuck and was stuck in front of Becky as Jeanna scooted over to make room for me.

"Oh my... Reggie," Becky exclaimed as I looked down at her. I parted the two buckets of popcorn which blocked my view from above to reveal a smile on Becky's face and to my horror... a raging hard-on in my shorts. It tented my loose shorts and was literally inches from her face.

"Whoa!" I quickly sat down on the spot Jeanna cleared. She hadn't noticed my erection as she was clearly entranced with the show. I looked to my right and found Becky still gazing at my crotch with a smile on her face. I nervously looked past her to Chuck who was also too busy watching the show to notice any of this. I handed Jeanna a bucket of popcorn and handed the other to Becky who passed it to Chuck without taking her eyes off my crotch. She finally looked up at me as I nervously turned to the show, not wanting to make eye contact with her.

"What's gotten into you Reggie boy?" She asked suggestively.

"Nothing," I snapped back, still in shock over the incident with the donkey and completely numbed by the fact that I now had an erection. And it wasn't just any erection, my cock was throbbing hard. I continued to nervously watch the show as Golden Rod stepped into the center circle and lifted a huge set of weights over his head.

"Next time I should go with you to get the refreshments," Becky teased.

I giggled nervously trying my best to ignore her. I tried to focus on the show as Golden Rod now lifted the weights with his teeth. But I found my eyes journeying down to his crotch. It was bulging. I could almost see his cock twitch and throb as he strained to lift the weights. I found myself wondering how big it might be and whether there was a collection of juice collecting at the head. I now felt pre-cum dripping down my own leg through my shorts.

"Holy Shit," I exclaimed out loud.

"I know... He's incredible isn't he," Jeanna exclaimed as she watched Golden Rod put on his show.

I now felt a hand gently wrap around my raging hard cock. I looked down to find Becky's hand squeezing my erection through my now soaked shorts.

"Reggie," she sighed in amazement as she could clearly feel that my cock and balls were soaked in pre-cum. "What happened to you?"

I couldn't answer. What could I say? And Jeanna is sitting right next to me. What would she say if she found her best friend's hand wrapped around my pole? I had to get out of there. I leaned looked over to Jeanna and excused myself to use the restroom.

"Yeah okay honey," she answered without even turning her head.

I stood up all the while Becky continued to grip my iron hard pole. I literally had to tug it away from her causing my stiff cock to flop around in my shorts. She continued to gaze at me with a goofy grin on her face as I struggled to get past the bleacher crowd. I was hunched over in an attempt to hide my hard-on.

I finally made it out to the concession stands and leaned on a tent pole. I hunched over as far as I could to keep my erection hidden. I nervously nodded and grinned at people as they passed. Man I must look stupid. What's wrong with me?

Just then I heard a voice call out to me, "Hey Sir?"

I looked up toward the concession stand and saw the cute girl still working behind the counter. I nodded and flashed a nervous smile.

"Did'ja get a chance to see all the freaks down the isle?" She asked.

"The cages were all empty," I answered back preoccupied with hiding my erection.

"Really? That's weird. I think the Donkey Boy should be back there. He's funny you should go talk to him," she suggested.

"Yeah right," I smiled and nodded back to her as she went back to doing chores behind the counter.

My mind started wandering back to the Donkey Boy. I looked down the dimly lit isle of cages as circus music filled my head. Then I looked back toward the bleachers... I could hear the audience cheer and applause. I have to face this... I thought. I must've hallucinated the whole thing. Without control I walked back down the isle. It felt like I was floating, but I managed to regain my composure as I reached the end of the isle and Donkey Boy's cage.

I crept up to the cage and peered in. I saw the donkey just standing there and I began to feel my erection relax. It felt like a huge weight being lifted off my crotch. Whew, I though to myself... I must've been dreaming or something.

"Heh heh," I chuckled to myself.

"What are you laughing at?" Donkey Boy asked me.

BOING! My rod sprung to attention again as Donkey Boy's voice rang through my ears. Damn... I wasn't dreaming.

"Hey Donkey... er Donkey Boy I guess... heh heh," I nervously replied.

"Couldn't resist huh?" Donkey Boy asked as he stepped toward the bars of his cage.

"Resist what?" I snapped back frustrated by this whole situation.

"Resist the fat one," Donkey Boy said as he turned to his side again exposing his massive cock and balls.

He was right... I had to see his `fat one' again. I couldn't help myself. But it was just out of curiosity. Really it was. I stood there for what seemed an eternity with my mouth agape and the sounds of circus music running through my head. The cock throbbed and twitched and I noticed that his balls were hairless and glistened in the dim light. I felt my juices dripping down my own leg.

"Well look at that," said Donkey Boy, referring to the pre-cum spilling down my leg, "That's what I call sloppy wet."

"Why don't you step in and get a closer look?" Donkey Boy offered.

I stepped around the cage and found the door. It wasn't locked but it had a door that could only be opened from the outside. I lifted the latch and stepped into the cage. My feet pushed aside the deep mounds of soft hay as I nervously approached Donkey Boy.

Now, I am not gay. Never was. I was strictly doing this out of curiosity and to try and get past the whole situation. I really had no other choice.

"Go ahead," said Donkey Boy, "Give it a squeezeHEEHAW."

"Okay... I mean why not," I reached under his soft fuzzy belly and gripped the shaft of his cock. It felt like a steel pole. I began to stroke slowly, back and forth... pulling the skin away from the head. I saw pre-cum spill out.

"HEEHAW," brayed Donkey Boy, "...step behind me and give those balls a feel."

I released his rod, letting it smack against his belly as some of the pre-cum spattered on my shoes. I stepped behind him and wrapped one hand around each of his grapefruit sized balls. I cupped them, feeling their weight.

"Yeah there ya goHEEHAW... heavy aren't they?" Donkey Boy looked back over his shoulder as I continued to grope his massive balls. They were like two huge tits in my hands. All I could think about was sliding my own cock between them while I squeezed them around it. I fell to my knees in a daze.

I must've blacked out momentarily because the next thing I know, I'm leaning against the bars of his cage. My face pressed between two steel bars and my hands tightly gripping them. I looked back over my shoulders to find Donkey Boy pulling down my shorts with his teeth. I then look underneath me and find my feet spread wide and my cock raging hard pointing right at my face.

"What... what's going on?" I nervously ask Donkey Boy.

"What do you think's going on?" Donkey Boy replied with sarcasm as he buried his muzzle in my ass. "Mmrrrphhh!"

"Oh!" I yipped as I felt his warm wet tongue slither up and down my ass. "Oh God!" It felt amazing as I could already feel my balls start to churn. I'd never had my ass eaten out- ever. But damn it felt good! My mind was awash in pleasure but I began to worry about someone finding me with a donkey's muzzle in my ass. This was so freakish.

I gripped the bars tighter as I realized that I actually had a smile on my face. I felt Donkey Boy's long tongue slither up between my balls, spreading them apart and coating the underside of my hard cock with wetness. I was up on tiptoes as he continued to work me.

"Please Donkey Boy...," I managed to force out some words between my huffing, "Please stop."

"HEEHAW!" He ignored my pleas as he continued to slop up my backside with slick witness.

"Oh... damn," I felt my neck weaken and my eyes rolling back as my head continued to press against the bars. It felt incredible as I began to drip sweat. I started gyrating my hips... I wasn't even conscious of this until I looked underneath my self again and saw my cock and balls flopping around. I saw Donkey Boy's hot tongue slithered between my balls and covering the length of my shaft. Then, I felt Donkey Boy press his muzzle against my ass- hard. My sweat soaked face was pressed against the bars when I felt my entire head slip through. "Ungh!"

"Like that huh?" Donkey Boy asked me.

"Yeah..." I sighed with a huge stupid smile on my face.

Then I realized... my head was stuck between the bars. Oh shit! I panicked and immediately snapped out of my stupor of ecstasy. I began pulling back, trying to get my back through.

"Donkey Boy," I pleaded, "Donkey Boy help me get my head through the bars!"

Then I felt Donkey Boy begin to slide his long hard cock between my legs. It nudged itself between my balls and then traveled the length of my own 7" shaft. I could feel him straddle my back as his hooves came around my sides. His cock pressed hard against my belly and squished my own cock against it. My need to escape from the grip of the steel bars gave in to my need to feel this massive rod continue to stroke my underside.

That's when I felt him pull back and then press the massive cock head against my slick wet ass. Oh no! I thought there's no way he's gonna fit that meat pipe up my ass. I panicked again... and started to pull and jerk on the bars. But it was no use my head was completely stuck.

"Um... hey Donkey Boy," I resolved to pleading again, "I think maybe you're kinda big you know... I mean you're cock is kind of..."

"WOOOOHOOOO!"

My scream was loud enough to startle the cute girl back at the concession stand who banged her head on the top of the ice cream counter as she was leaning inside to scoop up some Choco Chunk Fudge. She plopped it down onto a sugar cone and handed it to the customers who were also startled by my scream and looking down the isle to see what all the commotion was about.

"Don't worry about it... It's just one of the performers goofing off." She took their buck fifty and slipped it into the cigar box behind the counter as the patrons rushed back to the bleachers so as not to miss the show. Then she hopped over the counter and rushed down the isle to see what was going on.

"Ungh... unhg...huff...huff," I was struggling to keep my breath as Donkey Boy pumped my backside. I looked up to find the concession girl standing in front of me outside of the cage... her mouth agape as she was no doubt in shock at what she.

"What are you doing to Donkey Boy!?!" She asked, clearly not aware of what had transpired.

"Ungh...huff... it's...ungh...it's what's Donkey Boy...huff...doing to me!" I struggled to answer her.

"How did you get into his cage?" She asked.

"It...huff... it was open," I tried to explain but was having trouble getting the words out as the pain I was feeling in my guts began to feel a lot more like pleasure as Donkey Boy continued to rock in and out of my tail.

"Oh his cage was open so you decided to just walk in." She was upset by the situation, "you know it's my job to keep an eye on the isle! This could get me fired!"

"Just get him off of me," I pleaded.

Concession Girl stepped around the cage and I could hear but not see the door to the cage open.

"C'mon Donkey Boy... pull out of him!" I heard Concession Girl struggling as I managed to look over my shoulders and see her trying to pull Donkey Boy off of my ass.

"HEEHAW" Donkey Boy brayed as he started pumping harder and faster. I felt my cock and balls flopping around underneath me... the sound of the `smack, smack, smack' of my stiff cock whacking my belly echoed through the cage between my grunts. The `slap, slap, slap' of Donkey Boy's glorious balls smacking against my own balls mixed in to create the sounds of hot sweaty sex.

I bit my bottom lip as I felt it begin to quiver. I was in heaven. The donkey cock see-sawed in and out of my bottom. But he wasn't just pumping randomly, there was a rhythm to it. As I started to concentrate on the beats of each thrust I began to pump back. Now we began working a rythym as I bucked back and forth. Sweat poured over me as I felt Donkey Boy begin to

lick it off my neck. I turned my head and he slipped his long tongue into my mouth. I can't believe I was actually French kissing Donkey Boy!

"YUCK!" I heard Concession Girl exclaim. She was now atop Donkey Boy, bare-backing him as she pulled him by his ears in an attempt to get him off of me. "You're actually enjoying this!?!?"

"No I am not!" I argued back, "Ungh... I figure if I can...huff...if I can make him...unghmmrrrpphhh... if I can make him cum he'll pull out!" I was now gyrating my hips in complete abandon. I closed my eyes so I could concentrate on the rythym of his thrusts.

I heard the gate to the cage squeek open again. Concession Girl appeared in front of me. This time she began pushing on my face trying to get my head back through the cage. Her middle finger slipped between my lips and I instinctively began sucking it.

"Ewe!" She exclaimed in disgust. She began pushing harder on my head.

Donkey Boy was really pumping now. Harder and harder. Faster and faster. The wet slapping sounds were so loud that they drowned out the droning circus music.

"UNGH!" Concession Girl gave one last shove and `POP' my head slipped back through the bars as Donkey Boy and I fell back. We landed with a thud and Donkey Boy's rod completely impaled me. I thought his cock was going to come up through my mouth as I felt it buried to the hilt. I hovered there in a daze as I gazed at Concession Girl on the other side of the cage. She stood there in awe... motionless for what seemed like an eternity. I started to see pearly white ropes of liquid spatter her through the bars. Stream after stream flung at her. I looked down to see that it was my hard cock pumping out cum. Spurt after spurt. I came without even touching my cock. I felt my bottom lip quivering uncontrollably as I stared at Concession Girl with a cross-eyed gaze.

Then, I felt Donkey Boy unload inside of me. It felt like someone turned on a water hose as it gushed out of me and over his cock and balls. "Oh Donkey Boy! Oh..." I moaned like a bitch in heat.

"HEEHAW!" He shoved me off of his cum spurting prick and I landed flat on my face- my ass pointing straight to the ceiling. I felt two or three more long spurts splash hard on my ass and back before hearing the cage door swing open and the sound of hooves clip-clopping away. Donkey Boy was escaping. I rolled onto my side and looked up to find Concession Girl standing there in shock and soaked with cum.

I managed to pull up my shorts and struggle out of the cage. I could barely walk and had to use the bars of the cage to keep from falling over. I stumbled over to Concession Girl... still out of breath I tried to talk.

"I... I'm so...sorryeeeeeeeeggh" I felt another spasm as I shot a load in my shorts. My eyes rolled back as I leaned against the cage for support.

She slowly turned to me, cum dripping from her nose and chin and one eye practically glued shut. Trembling now in anger she said, "Take your cum soaked ass and get outta here! You HOMO!"

"But... but I'm not gay..." I tried to explain.

She raised one arm and pointed me away. I stumbled away as she struggled to keep her one good eye open. I made it back to the bleachers right as the show let out. I was covered in sweat and had strands of hay covering my body not to mention the ropes of Donkey Boy jism that were spattered against portions of my body.

"Wow that was a great show!" Jeanna exclaimed as she walked toward me with Beck and Chuck behind her.

"Wonderful," I replied with absolutely no emotion. I was in still in a state of shock.

"What happened to you?" Jeanna asked as she began picking straw from my hair and dusting off my shirt.

My eyes locked with Becky's who stood there with a toothy grin. "Well, maybe we can hook up again next week guys?"

"Yeah that would be nice," answered Jeanna as she turned her attention away from me and walked off with her friends. Becky again turned over her shoulder and gave me a wink and a smile.

Just then I heard Donkey Boy bray in the distance... and felt my cock spurt in my shorts one last time.

Are these people that bored that they need to spend a day doing this? Ok, wait, that's not even what bothers me the most...

Who paid for that thing? I mean, it was someone's car at one point right? Did they not need it anymore? I've never known many people to just destroy a fairly new car because they just "wanted to"...

Lesson learned: Don't destroy a perfectly good car, even if it IS a rice burner...

... because I'm currently accepting car donations. :)

Sure they probably paid for it... but I bet they aren't going to be throwing away money like that in the near future :)

Not after they (Sport Compact Car) ran the Cobb Tuning project WRX into a water truck causing $22k of damage!
See the April 2003 magazine for a shot of the car on the front (and inside for the accordian version) and also see http://www.projectcobb.com/conebasher/ for the car. *425hp to the wheels!*

So, but cutting down and removing parts of the car until it's basicall useless, they can make it do 0-60 in 5.8 seconds. Why bother?

First, the thing probably isn't legal for any sort of competition now. Nobody would let you race this thing, It's too dangerous. What if it rolls?

Second, it's "fast" but it's not that fast. Why not put all that effort into making a car that already a little fast, go really fast? You can buy a car that does 0-60 in 5.8seconds, and we're not talking a Ferrari either.

I get really sick of seeing hondas with huge wings on the back and coffee can exhaust pipes. There are people out there that will till you adding a big exhaust TIP will give you like 5hp! WTF? What's wrong with these people!?

come on.. get a clue. Is sarcasm and absurdity totally lost on you? That car was a crusher anyway, i.e. it was a test car, unregistered, given to the mag to play with. When they're done with it, they have to return it to nissan, who has to destroy it anyway.

My goddam fat pig of a 99 Trans Am convertible -- 3800lbs w/o driver -- pulls low 12's. That's *with* air conditioning, 1000w of bass power, and full leather, spare tire, trailer hitch, and body panels. And all for probably a comprable cost.

Sentras are nimble cars... they'll often kick my ass in an autocross, if the course is tighter and slower. But getting 14's out of a sentra is like gleefully reporting overclocking a 500mhz Duron to 700mhz. There may be some technical merit there, but neither the starting product nor end result is particularly impressive.

... and a literbike will run in the 10's, bone stock. Heck, some are even scratching the top part of the 9's.

Hey I like using a Sawzall as much as the next guy, but what a waste.

See here [sportrider.com] and weep...

squidliness is next to codliness...

While I'm all for trashing cars. . . (2, Insightful)

I don't get how the 'case' on this thing was modded.

More like 'removed altogether', thus reducing a car into a go-cart.

But who am I to judge? I used to get my kicks. . . Well, actually I never got my kicks doing anything even remotely similar. Or expensive. But whatever.

Oh! I thought of one! I thought the Phantom Edit was cool idea. And Guerilla Advertising. That's sort of the same; taking post conusmuer idiocy and restructuring it so that it becomes something equally ridiculous, but which satisfies the male need to tinker with things and thereby stamp some sort of individuality upon pre-fab nonsense.

People are funny that way. It's how you avoid gazing into the void to face your ultimate aloneness. It's much easier to pull apart flashy consumer junk, feel self-congratulatory for no good reason, confuse your girlfriends, and say, "Cool" a lot with your buds.

When playing that game finally fills you with nausea to the point where you start wishing for death, you're probably 75 years old, and nobody cares what you think at that point anyway.

Cheers!
