    Another fad I'm glad to see is dead are the lowered minitrucks. The ones with the tiny rims with tires that stuck out from the wells. They were so impractical because they couldn't handle any dips or bumps, always crawling through intersections.

    Re: worst car fad

    About a quarter of the music I own is rap.

    Playing it in a convertible, I am sure there have been times it was too loud for someone. I would hope that whoever was offended would be mature and rational enough not to become obsessed with the temporary situation to the point of seeking revenge. People who expect the world to be inhabited by only others who think, feel, and act, exactly as they do (and think others should), are destined to be permanently miserable without professional help.

    That said, I also do not like the cars that are so loud you can feel three cars away without hearing the music. I tolerate them until I, or they, move away. Being cars, which are mobile by nature, that is the easiest solution. To seek retribution for some momentary irritation would seem to me to be a bit of an extreme reaction. I am sure just as often I irritate them with my gradual acceleration away from a light, or my strictly following the posted speed limit. These are the trade-offs we make to live as a society of individuals sharing the same space.

    Like any music there are rap pieces that are good and bad. There are also, like all musical trends of the past, pieces that are, in their nature, designed to be controversial or counter-culture. That dose not mean that there aren't also pieces that are musically complex and lyrically beautiful. Just as with the music trends of past generations, the controversial aspects have done exactly what was intended. They have formed a music for the current generation that is hated by the older generation, thus allowing the young to enjoy it and the ability to piss off the old at the same time.

    The society didn't crumble when the flappers danced wildly, or when Elvis gyrated. We even survived the "noise" and "lack of any musical value" of the Beatles. We will be able to survive this also. At least the people who can control their irrational beliefs and emotions with people who do not meet their standards of conduct. They will end up in jail or a mental hospital eventually.
    Or perhaps a compound in the woods.

    Summary for those who don't want to read this whole long winded post....
    Hey....you kids.....get off my lawn!

    We used to slam Chevy S10's Chevy Luvs, Mazda B2200's, and Nissan Hard bodies back in the day. It was fun

    Wheels that have the REALLY stretched tires on them, tires that have no business being on a wheel that wide. They look like they are going to implode and cause a HUGE accident.

    I got a friend with a Subaru outback, he's pumping bass nonstop. His rearview mirror won't hold any position, even with the stereo off and his roof racks are about falling off... I hate riding in his car, and every time he goes by some "cool lookin cats" he turns it up even louder. All you can hear from outside the car is the racks rattling. Haha.
    I think hearing what's going on in and around the car is more important and interesting than ear crushing bass.

    ----------

    And let's not destroy each others cars... you don't mess with a mans wheels. I wouldn't do it to my worst enemy, because there is likely kids depending on those wheels, and it just doesn't seem right. Don't take it out on the cars, they don't know no better. I like to turn up the tunes once in a while, but I try to be neighborly. Destroying property is not neighborly.

    I do not find "rap" musically pleasant or even environmentally tolerable ... accept to educate the rest of society as to the depths to which some of our fellow man can fall in their disrespect for other members of the human race.
    If I didn't know better, I would swear you were a closet fan.

    I'm with T.A. Let's be neighborly and find some tolerance. Lay off property damage. That's just a step short of of assault and too often leads there.

    I'm sure I don't realize the things I do to aggravate some people!

    Re: worst car fad

    I can agree with Orconn. I am not a Rap fan, or a fan of disturbing the peace. A LOT of rap is disrespectful to women, men, particular individuals or racist.

    A lot.

    But a LOT of it isn't While I am not a real fan of rap and I can see that it has it's songs that are just vulgar or cruel, it has a lot that are not. Likewise, there are racist, vulgar or hateful themes in many other genres of music.

    In a perfect world, everyone could just listen to a pure form of music, free of hate or vulgarity. Music with no use of profanity or cruelty.

    Music like Black Metal.

    But that SUX! Sounds like a poor Prodigy/Motörhead/Slayer bar band.

    And anyone that believes that there was no murder or rape before the creation of rap, metal or even video games is not living in reality.

    FLAT BLACK -

    everything painted flat-black -

    back in the 60's and 70's the non-glare flat-black hood
    actually had a purpose -

    but now - EVERYTHING is painted flat-black -
    car - wheels - taillights - headlights - any chrome trim -

    to me - it looks like it got the first coat of black primer -
    and the owner ran out of money -

    there is NOTHING sharp about a car in primer -

    it's not that murder - rape - and violence didn't exist
    before rap - and video games -

    it's the FACT that murder - rape - and violence
    is so readily ACCEPTED - almost EXPECTED -
    and DOESN'T disturb kids anymore -

    and ANYONE who doesn't think people have become desensitized
    to rape - murder - and violence BECAUSE of rap and violent video games
    is ALSO living in a fantasy world -

    Plus it's a Honda. But it's my fun car...
