Swording the ZX2(kinda long)

A few weeks prior we got this idea into us that when we race we should lead a "charge" using a sword out the window kinda like the old horseback cavalry days and we threw it around for a while and then forgot about it.

Well, last Sunday (October 14) I was out cruising with a fellow board member in his pristine 87 GN. He has a few upgrades: injectors, adj. fuel pressure regulator, Walboro 307 pump and the like. And one of us mentions the sword idea again and we both look at each other and grin. It being Halloween season we ran by the local drugstore and went in to check out the costume aisle to find the right "battle cry" and opted for a plastic ninja sword. We thought it'd be more appropriate for when we burnt rice.

For about fifteen minutes after we bought the sword it was pretty dry when coming up behind us we see this burgundy Escort with blue neon shining in the interior coming up behind us. We slow a bit and he passes and lo and behond it's a ZX2 with a wing, rims, stickers, fartcan all all the other rice paraphernalia that normally comes along with that type of thing.

We cruise along behind him for a bit hoping he'd go straight at the light a few blocks ahead as it looked as if we'd catch it red. It looked as if was to be true but he slides into the left-hand turn lane forcing us to slip in at the last moment. We take the turn and pull up next to him and he looks over and floors it. Being a gentlemen my friend lets him pull for a moment and then mashes it thrusting the sword out the window in victory as we fly past him. That's when we saw the Domino's Pizza sign in his window. We'd just sucessfully sworded the pizza boy :p We laughed about it the rest of the night.

There's nothing like taking out some domestic rice and giving him a good swording in the process;)
 
Good kill Cryptic

You guys did a good job of vanquishing that evil pizza boy ricer LOL!!! You guys should of raced him for a deep dish pepperoni or maybe a thin crust with extra cheese and topings ROFLMAO!!! BTW, if he's a true RICER shouldn't he be a delivery boy for a Chinesse takeout place instead of a sh!tty domestic pizza place like Domino's;)
 
Thanks, yea it would've been nice to get a pizza since we were hungry. We ended up going to Sonic right afterwards and getting a burger. Frying rice is hard and hungry work!

If I see him around I'll suggest he change his place of employment but I can't promise I'll be able to keep a straight face while doing it :) I'm such an a$$

I can't keep a straight face every time I see a ricer who takes a perfectly good economy car, and tries to make it into some kind of race car with huge wings, spoilers, body kits, stickers, fart tips, and it goes on and on... Nothing makes me laugh more and it also makes me wonder how ignorant and clueless people can be LOL:confused:

I figure at least they're taking an interest in cars, regardless of their origin. They compare wings, ride height, and stereo systems like we compare timeslips.

They need to realize that what they're doing is for show, not go. I have all the respect in the world for people who take the time to take a car - any car - and make it their own by personalizing it. Looks are subjective, and what looks good to them may look ridiculous to us. But, playing around with GNs, LS1 F-bodies, and the like is fruitless and just gets them laughed at. When they screw with me in the GN it really pisses me off.

uh, god that was funny..........you brought tears to theyes on that one..........sword out the window.........lol!
 
Glad you're enjoying it

I'm just glad that we could bring a smile to your face. We thought the sword idea was great and in my opinion pretty original. Maybe we'll start a trend and instead of brights and hazard lights people across the nation will be sticking swords out their windows if they want to race and when they win :D
 
;) I felt as if I had kicked a puppy...until a few of my sources revealed the evil pizza boys rampant blabber of his "RACE CAR":rolleyes:
