Don't bother challenging me...

By EternalOne

Filed under: 1999 Mercury Cougar (Eternal)

Ok, I accepted the first two challenges just to see what they're like. After realizing they are nothing more than a popularity contest I will no longer be accepting any challenges -- I think its absolutely stupid that cars that wouldn't even stand a chance against me in a car show come within a few points of a tie. I also don't like the fact that I receive messages asking me to vote for them so they can win a challenge -- again that's not how you should win, if your car is good enough it will win on its own...

I didn't spend $50k on this car to see it get beat by some of the worst looking or some bone-ass stock car, I swear some people have no taste when they are building their cars and others think they can buy a new car and compete with no mods...

Hate me for it if you like, haters will be haters...

I had to approve ROLNGTZ's comment, simply to prove a point here. He seems to think that winning challenges on this site is an "honor" or something -- its not, its a stupid system where you challenge someone and then PM all of your friends to vote for you. Even when I first joined I said I'd never do the challenges, then I recieved my first challenge from none other than ROLNGTZ -- had I known at the time he did nothing but sit on here all day and challenge people I would have declined the first one -- but I accepted to see how the system worked. I confirmed that the system is stupid (as a car show judge he should know that, unless of course he's a corn-field car show judge) -- and then I posted the original entry. Now he comes on and acts like a child because I scorned his challenges, and hurt his ego.

He says I have a poor attitude, because I think my car is the ****. No, quite different here. I have a great attitude about my car, its built for a very specific purpose, to win car shows and promote products and services for my sponsors and my shop. Unlike him, I do this for a living.

He claims I refused a challenge because I would lose, no I declined because I posted a damn bulletin saying don't challenge me because I'll decline, how ****ing hard is that to understand, idiot? I'm here because I needed a quick and easy way for my sponsors to check up on the car until the website its redone this year, chatting with a few people about cars is only a bonus.

He then proceeds to say I was crying and call me a loser, funny here he is challenging every car he can get his hands on to increase his Internet Ego, and then says I'm crying because I don't care about the challenges? No, fact is he is the one crying, because I called out his precious challenges for what they are, nothing more than a way for people with ****ty cars to "win".

So, he claims I'll be beaten in a real car show by his friend with a two-tone Cavi. So... Bring it. Stop talking, grow a pair, and show up at any major show around the area, Detroit, Indy, Chi-Town -- I'll be all over your neck of the woods so come on out, and beat my car in a REAL show. And just for ****s and giggles we'll run on the track, I'll show ya what a 3L Supercharged Jaguar motor running over 20psi with a 150 shot does on the track... (I'll even record using my rearview camera as I walk you on the track.)

Now...as you said, go cry to someone else... I'll be on the phone designing next years project car.

You think VERY highly of your car don't you. I judge and compete in car shows. Picutres RARELY EVER do a car justice. For you to think your car is all that. Its a POOR attitude to have. I actually had a friend challenge you and you declined. In a REAL CAR SHOW, your Cougar would have lose to him. But you took the cowards way out by declining. If you don't beleive me, checkout imphat260. Its a two tone Cavalier.

Howeber, you wouldn't be the first to whine over losing or tying in a challenge. You just happen to be the first to post a journal about it.

Now go cry to someone who cares. LOSER!!!
