Cars, and the jerks that drive them.

Post by Shaft » Saturday, 07 June 2008, 21:17 PM

Maybe this belongs in the humor section, but it is automotive based. Before I start my rant please let me explain that the feelings I am about to express are not felt towards any of you on the forum. My commentary is only for humor. With all that said.........

Let's get a list going of cars that all seem to be driven by jerks. I'll list a few and then we can go from there. All comments are welcome as long as they are clean.

Crew Cab Ford F250 4x4
The jerks that drive these are all 22-28 year old males, and are usually single. They all jack them up, put big wheels on them, and NEVER take them off road. These jerks are also responsible for the near death of many neighborhood mailboxes because they don't pay attention to the surroundings of their slutty girlfriend's home. The F250 Jerk's truck is not complete without either a large Ford logo or Texas Trophy Hunters Association sticker on the back window.
Image

V8 Ford Mustang
The F250 Jerk must learn to run his mouth somehow and it usually comes from their first Ford, a Mustang. The Mustang is popular for these jerks from the ages of 16 through 24. Every one of them thinks that they have the fastest Mustang out. Yeah, she sure is fast when its sitting at home with a broken tie rod or whatever you broke when showing off in a Wendy's parking lot. A lot of times you will see them driving their girlfriends car because their Muskrat is usually broken down. (How they forget that Ford means Fix Or Repair Daily.) But don't ever challenge to race them. The prerace show will nothing but them running their mouth about how they are going to beat you. If they do beat you, then you will never hear the end of it. Even 2 weeks later they will still be flappin' their jaw. If you win, then they will start blabbing about how they would have one if it wasn't for that part they broke last week when they beat that ZR Corvette or Viper. Plus you will also have to consistently hear them say, "as soon as I get my car fixed we're gonna race again and this time I'll win".
Image

Corvette
No list would be complete without mentioning the ultimate Jerk car, the Corvette. We all the know problem with Corvettes; they are the opposite of a cactus. (PM me if you don't know what that means.) Most Vettes are driving by white collar, upper-middle class, middle aged men that have an empty nest and/or divorced. It's not fair that a car that is so much fun to drive is too expensive to own when you are young and can enjoy it. (Think about why only kids drive Mustanks.) Corvette Jerks are easy to spot in a crowd. Just look for the Corvette leather jacket, Corvette key chain, Corvette watch, and Corvette ball cap.
Image

10+ year old Cadillac
The status symbol of choice in Anyghetto, USA. Who cars that it smokes, has wheels out of balance, and 300,000 miles; it's still a Cadillac. When given the choice of a Honda Accord that will run forever and is in better shape, they will take the Cadillac every time. But before you drive your wanna be Pimp Daddy Caddy home, be sure to take it by Maaco and get the purple pearl or emerald green paint job for $199. Don't forget the chrome grille and gold plated Cadillac emblem. Who cares if the brakes are shot as long as you got the dinner platter wheels. You are the envy of the socialist security office when you pull up in this ride. Be sure to check out their trunk equipped with a pawn shop woofer box, Boss Audio amplifier, and the milk crate car detail kit.
Image

Jaguar XJ8
Driven by the widow of the wealthy oil man, or ex wife of an American Airlines pilot. You'll see her with her platinum blond bob haircut, Bichon Frise or Poodle, and leopard print handbag. You don't have to worry about parking near her car and accidentally scratching her door because she ALWAYS has it valet parked. The XJ8 jerk is unique in the fact that their fecal matter has no odor.
Image

OK, that's enough for now. Maybe I'll post something about JB Hunt in my next one.

Boy...........Where to begin ?? I thought FORD stood for "Found-On-Russsian-Dump" which is pretty bad as they throw nothing out over there. Good thing I drive a MERCURY 5.0 :P . Oop almost forgot I have 2 Mustangs w/Jersey plates. Where I'm from in *New Jersey* EVERY driver is a jerk----you have to study for it on the driver's exam. The "New Jer-ky" Turnpike would even make the German Autobahn drivers jealous. There's a certain "Jerk Etiquette" that takes some finesse and you either got it or 'ya don't. Was that really a burnout in the Wendy's parking lot---or was it an engine dying it's last gasp or maybe just burning oil ?? Yeah the "get-ups" that people "suit-up" in when out in their stereotypical rides can be humorous at times but it's a wild world out there............Hey "what you drivin"?

What about the "mini-van man" or "soccer moms".....................

Shaft that is just messed up man. I am 24 and drive a jacked up F250. Of course whenever I see another one I view them in the same way as your post. Those punks give us guys with legitimate nice trucks a bad name. And my mommy and daddy didn't buy mine nor pay for anything on it. It makes me sick to see some high school punk driving some huge truck like that. Must be nice to be given 50k worth of equipment to just throw around. Plus mine does see off-road action. Not nearly as much as I would like, but it does see it. The rest of the post is spot on. I am just one of the exceptions who happens to fall into the usual suspects range. Plus I actually use mine to tow toys on occasion so I have a reason to own it. But I can't say I don't act like a big kid at times in it.

Nice post Shaft. You are definitely spot on with the Mustang and Corvette crowds. I am sure there are exceptions to those as well, but I sure don't see many.

Of course there is the group that of high school, usually boys, that drive completely stock trucks, put on an exhaust system and automatically think they can whip anything on the road. And they definitely try to race everything. These guys make me laugh.

I hate hearing that when people do that, lose their vehicles in such a way. They don't get anything for it hardly and it attracts the desperate or needy. So he was a "I got no exhaust almost sounds like Flowmasters" type driver huh?

Ford Ranger
The Ford Ranger pickup is popular because it is one of the cheapest cars in America. But for one group, it is the car..or let me say..truck of choice. Presenting our Ford Ranger Jerk, the butch, bulldyke, lesbian. These trucks are easy to spot with the rainbow BUTCH sticker on the back and/or pink triangle. Check out the parking lot at the next WNBA game and you will find plenty. Also, ownership requires a mullet.

It's also funny, the reaction with the Mustnag crowd (which you aptly hit on the head), when they see me driving my car:

Image

I suppose their five-point-slows or four-point-sicks don't give them enough balls to play around with that! Yes, it's an old police car, yes it still looks like one, yes there are departments out here (including Sherrif Joe Arpaio) that run them, and yes, I laugh maniacally when they slow down in the act of passing me!

I like the Caprice that looks sharp. Almost as good as the two FORD police crown-vic's I had :wink: . Really though she looks good even with that Chevy emblem on there. The police-package cars----can't say enough about them, high-output and heavy-duty.

I'll stick with my old 97 Chevy silverado Z71 off road extended cab.. bought it new, just hit 100k and still love it. I don't think Ill ever get rid of this truck unless I give it to my son in 14 years when he can drive lol.

As far as the S-10's there definitely not for working although I do have one( 1985 2d 2wd s-10 blazer). To get around the general uselessness of it and the awesome gas millage they have I decided to build a 1974 police intercepter 350 4 bolt main to a 383 stroker and dropped in it with a 400 turbo tranny and 4:11 posi unit. Its now totally useless for anything but sucking up mustangs and so called tuners lol.. Its made a eyeball or two swell as the owners of brand new $30k sports cars get completely eaten alive by it. It has flow-masters on it now and headers of course but I used to run it as a sleeper. When it was quiet it really made a few people think "what the hell just happened" as it brought up the front wheels while sucking the headlights out of a new ride or 10 at a red light lol :D Ive been pulled more then once just so the cops could see what in the heck I had done to this Innocent looking kid carrier.


I will add pictures asap just to give you guys an idea of the Innocent looking S-economy tire fryer.

V8 S-10

The V8 converted S-10 is for the lower class guy/blue collar laborer who can't (and never be able to) afford a true muscle car but happen to have a non running S-10 and also happen to have a well worn out 305/350 from their grandmother's Caprice wagon to drop in. Combine the two together and you have a fast truck, like a muscle car. Or so you think. Most of those who drop V8's into their S-10's are backwoods shade tree mechanics who look for any short cuts they can to get an engine into a truck which was never designed for it. To get the engine in, you will need a used radiator, some zip ties (or bailing wire) to hold the radiator to the core support and some duct tape. Then you will need to tack weld some motor mounts to the frame only for them to break again. Leave the stock coil springs up front, for the V8 will give your S-10 a raked appearance. Sure it will bottom out on speed bumps and rail road tracks, but it saves the blue collar man on a lowering kit. For the trans you can run a TH350 so as to not get good gas mileage. To keep costs down, leave the stock rear in there, with a one legged carrier the right rear tire is guaranteed to go up in smoke in all 3 gears, if the 7.5 rear doesn't give out first. At the track expect to run 15's and maybe even 14's in the 1/4 on a really good day....nevermind the fact the V8 throws off the front to rear weight ratio by a very large margin (70% front, 30% rear)...just remember that worn out 180 hp engine somehow has a ton of power to fry that right rear tire which is more cooler than out running a Z06 Corvette. Also required for tackling this job is a wife beater, a 12 pack of Pabst blue ribbon beer, a copy of "Def Leppards 'Hysteria' album", a big tree with a make shift hoist installed, and the best location is your local mobile home park.

You could also include 5.0 powered Ford Rangers. Motor donated from a wrecked Mustang when one of those Mustang jerks had a wreck while D.W.I.

I saw a 350 S-10 once at a NHRA Nationals event. It was in a tent and was a really nice truck. However, there was so little room under the hood that the steering column had to go through the headers.

Let's just say that I've seen a lot of converted S-10's and how cheaply they were "thrown together". I have however ran into a few that looked every little bit like the factory installed them in there, but those are very few and far in between.

Good call on the 5.0 Rangers, though I've not seen many of those.

Whew! You guys are pretty rough on us truck lovers. :D

Would this be an acceptable engine in an S10?

151 C.I., Offenhauser Intake, Holley 4BBL, My Cam grind, MSD Ignition, Clifford Header. Exactly 50% of the engine weight of a 350 V8.

The truck is actually in pieces right now because what with my son being one of those "Mustang Nuts" I have decided to p1ss everyone off by putting a FORD :shock: 302 in it for a new street truck.

Flame suit on! Take your best shots! I am 51 and have only myself to please building cars and trucks now. 8)

By the way. On edit, since we are being so open and honest with each other about our thoughts on vehicles without getting into a big fight I will also add that real racers shift gears. No weenie auotomatics allowed around here. :)

(Bet this comment gets me roasted and toasted) Just keep it nice guys. :)

you gotta watch out for the mustang drivers in jersey, all these kids slap blowers on them and then it becomes the fastest car in the world. just be careful not to challenge them to a race you'll get the typical mustang answer "I only race on the highway at a 40mph roll in" which translates to "I don't know how to shift or launch a car right, so i won't go to the drag strip and let you beat me with your diesel farm truck"

Lesbians also like Chevy S-10 Blazers. And I wouldn't think about you like that slydog for the pure fact that you bought a 4x4. But then again, aren't we all butch lesbians trapped in a man's body?

I think this is all hilarious.

I own an AWD Mercury Mountaineer with a 5.0 in it. Basically a ranger with a back seat and enclosed bed.

I own mine out of necessity. I live in northern Michigan where we have snow six months out of the year, and lots of it too. I also do volunteer fire watch for the DNR so I have to be able to get back in the woods. Oh and I have 3 kids so it's either and SUV or mini-van and I despise mini vans.

I also grew up on a farm and learned how to drive on a pickup so I just prefer the larger vehicles.

I know the kind you speak of though. I went to high school with a kid who had the mustang gt with the flowmasters and crane cams and all the good stuff. We had a huge parking lot so I challenged him to a race. I smoked him with my ford f100 with the inline six and 4 on the floor. He thought flooring it and dumping the clutch was the way to go so he spun the tires.

By the way. On edit, since we are being so open and honest with each other about our thoughts on vehicles without getting into a big fight I will also add that real racers shift gears. No weenie automatics allowed around here. :)

(Bet this comment gets me roasted and toasted) Just keep it nice guys. :)
You are losing time in a race shifting gears manually and shifting more than once.

Are you double clutching too!? :twisted:

These pompous jerks love to pass my dumptruck on a double line blind curve and flip me the bird as they go by because they are in a hurry to get to the redlight before me....

What about the crowd that has a 327 smallblock in an old sleeper S-10? and what about the drivers that nearly wreck you on the highway because they were "racing" you as in going 90 then changing lanes right behind your car finding it also blocked then slam on the brakes and they to go into your lane causing you to go into the oncoming lane so you don't wreck and yea thats nearly happened about 3 times now :evil: so I guess that goes to the Wanna-be-racers or the careless-racers


whew i feel better now :)

Let's get a list going of cars that all seem to be driven by jerks. I'll list a few and then we can go from there. All comments are welcome as long as they are clean.

Crew Cab Ford F250 4x4
The jerks that drive these are all 22-28 year old males, and are usually single. They all jack them up, put big wheels on them, and NEVER take them off road. These jerks are also responsible for the near death of many neighborhood mailboxes because they don't pay attention to the surroundings of their slutty girlfriend's home. The F250 Jerk's truck is not complete without either a large Ford logo or Texas Trophy Hunters Association sticker on the back window.

Ok guys, I try to stay out of arguements, but this is where I draw the line.

You done screwed with the wrong farm boy. And if you choose to kick me off this forum, then so be it. Unlike most of you city slickers, I was born and raised on a farm. And I'm pretty sure that unless you have a chevy 2500, you've got a F250 or F350. No, we don't jack em up, and The snowplows knock down 10x the mailboxes any farmer ever has.

So why don't you kiss my redneck gluteus maxims?

Easy there now farm boy. Remember the first line of this thread was that this is humor. The Ford F250 Jerk I was talking about was the city slicker type as I said that they NEVER take the trucks off road.

A Ford F250 Farm Jerk wouldn't have his truck jacked up to high heaven because he knows it would scratch the roof and/or destroy his CB antenna when driving down a tree covered dirty road. And no Farm Jerk truck is complete without a least one dent in the side caused by a steer. (Of course the dent in the side of my father-in-law's farm truck was caused by my wife's head slamming into it when she was a little girl.)
A CB'er and his money are soon parted.

Jerks that never take their truck off road don't live in the country; everybody knows that. If you life in the country you've got have 4WD for when it rains and you can't leave the house because of the muddy dirt road.

However, there is actually a legitimate reason to have a F250 4X4 in the city, but it's not a F250 Jerk that drives them. It is usually a yuppy F250 Jerk that would rather be driving a BMW, but he needs the 4X4 to pull his boat out of the water when he back wheels start spinning on the slick boat ramp.

No, I'd just have String and Dom come and show you what the helicopter was for! That's a joke, you'd get it if you ever saw 'Airwolf' on TV. That's what the helicopter is, Airwolf.

Honestly, I have thick skin so it wouldn't bother me either way. So, don't be so sensitive!

I remember that TV show, that was back in what....'85? '86? They always used to tackle the enemy by blowing up their helicopter....that's about the only reason why I never got into that show....you always knew at the end someone was going to die when their helicopter was blown up.

Sounds like someone is jealous, can't afford the vehicle they really want. It is not nice to "stereotype" people by the vehicle they drive. "Judge not lest you be judged"

I actually sat down and read all this post and well it sometimes pi$$ed me off and some i thought were hillarious. Never owned a f250 wouldn't its that 4 letter word that i have a problem with. I have owned a few s-10s and have thought about putting in a 350. But then I had a s-10 with a 4.3 litre and well with a little work you will be as fast or at least fast enough for me. Now as for mustang crowd It also pertains to the camaro and trans am crowd. They always think there cars are the fastest thing on the road and most love to cut you off and drive like their heads are someplace that is dark and stinky. I have got alot of them upset with my 79 c-10 with a 375 horse power 327 and a three on the tree. and my 72 buick skylark gs 350 yes and even a few with my 89 s-10 4.3 with a bad cylinder they always gave me some looks to kill. I know there are alot of faster cars out there. A friend or mine built a 62 Galaxy 390 that was one fast machine and he would smoke anything i had. Most punks just don't understand the limitations to there vehicles. Well that is my rant for now

This guy was stationed on Fort Wainwright Alaska while I was there. I though his car was so amazingly stupid that I took a picture of it to show my friend back home. I figured just describing it wouldnt quite get the point across.

HI RISERS

Also known as "Donked out". Typically driven by black men and white wanna-be black (think: Vanilla Ice, Emeneim) men that want to idolize 4 wheel drive trucks but would rather spend thousands of dollars to pimp out their 2 wheel drive cars instead.

These types take a typical Caprice/Monte Carlo/Regal/Cutlass and install lift kits similar to what is used on a 4 wheel drive truck, in effort to fit massive 24" + size rims under the car that were never meant for it. Then in an effort to further express their poor taste in customizing, they paint the car in all sorts of candy apple colors and have a matching retina burning color to boot.

The type of person who typically drives one of these cars usually lives in a run down trailer park (to help save money) and sells drugs and even sometimes needlessly collects welfare. They'd rather have flashy expensive clothes and cars as opposed to a nice house to live in. Also considered to be a gangster wanna be thug.

Never mind that when lifting a car like this with big rims, you are seriously reducing the center of gravity while trying to stop on stock brakes (which are inefficient with big rims) not to mention with those rubber band tires you're sure to feel every bump in the road, but damn if you won't be the coolest cat (or "G") in town.

About the only advantage to this mod is easier oil changes. Just don't make too many sharp turns since there's no roll bar, and don't try and stop too quickly.

Required tools for this job: a fridge stocked full of 40 oz. malt liquor, lots of cash from dealing drugs, a copy of Ludacris CD. Also to complement this car, one should have a grille on their teeth while driving it.
