Imported Cars

Picture yourself in Orange County, California. As you walk on the gravel covered road, you
spy a bright neon green Honda Prelude. When you take a close look, you will see all kinds
of logos. Pokemon, Honda, Greddy, Mugen, Transformer, TriZone, Kamikaze, Weapon R,
Neuspeed, Barely Street Legal, HKS, Xenon, DC Sports, Catz, Nakayama, Venom, Napolex,
Tokico, Momo, Honda Sport, and Street Glow are all popular logos you can find anywhere. As
you turn a cheek, the sun's bright beam is reflecting off the shiny chrome wheels. Since
it is hurting your eyes, you turn around; right in front of you is a sticker that says
"Greddy Racing Exhaust System". As your eyes wonder downward, you see the 4.5-inch exhaust
tip. You stand up and leave with a huge smile and say, "That is going to be my car one
day".


Stickers are the main characters in import car shows. You can always get stickers of
anything and about anything if your car is great, as any import car owner hopes it to be.
To have millions of people admire your car as much as you do, your car will need to be
unique by using manufacture logos. The manufacture owner then gives you their logos, turbo

only true owners of the high wing spoilers are Toyota owners. Samurai sword holder
spoilers are basically the same as three-piece spoilers. The three-piece spoilers are only
for looks because they do not have the aerodynamic figure or slick designs. (Chang 44)


Every running car has to have an exhaust system. If you want a lot of speed, you would
want a racing exhaust system. A racing exhaust system contains a racing header, a
provision pipe with a custom tip. Mini draggers are another approach for looks, sound, and
some speed. You can hear a mini dragger from miles away. My mommy always told me "If you
can't say anything nice then don't say it all". Therefore, I'm not going to say anything
bad about the manufacturer's stock exhaust system. You will be able to find the sports
exhaust system in the after market. The sports exhaust is the inexpensive exhaust; all
because it is mainly for looks then speed. There are many choices available for the
interest of the owner.


The most important accent to any import car is the body kit. The regular manufacture body
is within a traditional framework. The manufacture style will catch some attention,
however, with a custom, wide body, or shogun body kit will really set you apart. A custom
