I happen to think the solid red mercury lamps are very nice looking... and I seriously doubt people sneer when they see them on my escort (the few that would notice, that is) :D I don't think I'd like to be seen in a ride sporting Altezzas.. even a new Altima... and I usually drive rustbuckets.

New.. hardly! Expression of art... Did you make them and design them yourself? Personal art.... how is that possible when every civic, accord and god knows what has them!

yep!

when i say new i mean to scorts!
not all cars! and not all hondas and stuff have them!
and in art i mean you do things to your car that make it look the way you want as in what you add or take off!
does a painter always make his brushes or paint, or even the whole canvas!

i just say if someone wants to do something to there car!let them dont rag on them, you want to icourage people to do stuff, niot be affraidn and discourage them from the hobby!

to each his own!

rice to me is thing that arent made for your car, or you cant afford by what i have seen over the years!

Two weeks ago I saw a Grand Prix GT with them. the car was completely red, except the taillights. it ruined the car IMO. Although I don't like altezzas at all, on some color cars' they look cool. like white or silver. but they will never be on my car. never. :wink:

Ok well, how about we shut up about this whole thing cause no ones opinion matter for this because if someone wants them they should get them if someone doesnt want them they shouldnt and they also shouldnt mock or rag on the person who did get them because it wasnt there car. I agree i dont like them but if they came out for my sedan i would get them because we know where to get these and not every escort in riverhead new york would have them which would make my car uniqe which is what i think "hooking up" cars is all about

IMO, it really depends on the color of the car to make altezza's / clears / euros work sw33tly. i've seen many civics in town here, a great majority of the 'hooked up' ones have aftermarket tails. it's the same car, the same aftermarket tails, but some just have a better look than others. for example, i think a white car would be nice with tails but a green one looks better with stock. w/ my car however, i took a step sideways and matched my vinyl stickies (ehehe stickies...) to my stock rear reflectors. kinda looks like it was almost meant to be that way, wrap-around red/orange. at least i like to think so (and most of my friends), so whatever. it's unique, and honestly, i haven't seen any other car out there where i think the same type of vinyl design work work well.

but i agree, to each his/her own. have fun with your own ride, and respect the fact that others are having fun with theirs too.

I think the opposite applies here. Everyone's opinion matters...but it should only matter to that person. If you want altezzas, far be it from me to stop you from doing it. I just don't like them. To me "hooking up" cars doesn't mean "ricing them out". if it doesn't bring the lower ETs at the track, I don't want or need it. (hypocrite: i just put about 80 lbs of stereo equipment in my car, not to mention I'm on my second set of front speakers) But, again why should my opinion stop you? Do what you want. I'll even compliment the pictures you show of them, why? because I am a nice guy. :wink: :lol:

you want my take on this subject, I have been with the Escort community for a long time, all the way back to the LX/SE board. And the one thing that I saw'll and still see , and is probably the reason for peoples opnions on the Altezzas.
They are just pissed because it has taken so long for them to come out on the Escort, and there pissed that they were made for the hondas first. People feel like there getting hand me downs, they want something to come out new just for the Escort and then let the Hondas get them to catch up. I sure the better part of you guys, remember seen your first honda with them on and you said to yourself,. Damn those really help the appearance of the car I want to get a set, you do some checking there not made for the Escort. You wait, nothing yet. So you get pissed, you feel that the Escort is way better then the Honda why are they makeing them. Then you see a Toyota and a Dodge has some made and then you get really pissed and then say Fuck them there gay blah, blah. Because there not made for the Escort.
People are just pissed because they don't get something for there car before Honda or at the same time. Guess what people. We drive Escorts. We are always goin to be last in line to get shit, and then if they think about making something for our cars, the chances get destroyed because the people bitch at how much it cost, Well think about this, How many people do shit to Escort compared to Honda ( yes Escorts are orginal, and I believe we should get more credit for what road we took to customizing a car) There are alot more Hondas tricked out compared to the Escort. The price for any part for the Escort is goin to be high because the company doesn't have as many people as Honda getting the part. And not to mention after the first production run, the honda part is goin to keep selling. Were as the first production run of the Escort part is goin to be the first and last because there will not be enough people to warrant a 2nd production run, and not to mention the first production run will sell half and the rest will set on the shelf till they collect dust, and then the company has to get some profit to cover there lose for making a part for the Escort. Because people here talked the talked but couldn't walk the walk. When they saw'll the price.
Everyone is entitled to your opinion, just don't go calling shit g&y because your pissed that it took this look to come out for the Escort. If you have been around as long as I have, you'll see that we are always goin to be the Bastard step-child. And gettin shit last. Because some people talk a big game but when they see the price, bitch and say its to much. We could have had Altezzas before alot of these cars, after they made them for the Hondas, but when it came time to give money for the first 50 people so that production could start people started talking there normal shit well I want to see what it is goin to look like blah, blah. The company told the people just give half a deposit for 50 lamps so we can start and get this goin for you. After the first set is made and you see them if you don't like them we will give your money back. Still they walked away, knowing that if they just gave there money on a little chance. ( that chance being if they looked good they were already 1 out of 50 to get them first) And give money to start this production for everyone and the community.

I'm goin to end this now , because I hate this subject. But some of the people will know what I'm talking about and agree when they read it. but not support it with a post, that is fine. And then........ there are goin to be the people that said they remember seeing the first honda with the tail lights on it and said that is g&y. cough, cough (BULLSHIT) Just don't hate the fact that the Hondas have people that want to spend money on there car and are goin to get things first. When we have people in the Community that say they want to do all this stuff but when they see the price the fucking whine and bitch.

Now you see thats the biggest pile of dog crap I've EVER seen. I have NEVER liked the look of the Altezzas, people put them on a red car and it ruins the whole damn car. I lke to look at the body lines of a particular car, and when you start playing with the taillights, you start playing with the body lines, it makes it too bold and out there in appearance so you won't have the time to draw around the car with the lines, you focus in on them right there.
This assumption that i get "mad" because no one made them for the Escort... where the hell did that come from? Because if and when they do come out, you will NEVER....AND I MEAN NEVER see altezzas on my car. so your assumption that you think I'm jealous of honda owners is purely an opinion on your part, which I have to restate is completely off the deep end. Now don't get mad, I don't like them and you can call bullsh*t on me all you want. but like I stated in my last post, your opinion doesn't matter to me as much as my opinion matters to me. Enjoy your altezzas.
