Your Cars Are The Stars - Editorialisms

They are in a class of their own — innovators instead of imitators.

It’s pretty amazing how fast time flies; it feels like just a month ago I was reaching out to you (the readers) about Readers’ Rides submissions, and here we are with the completed issue at hand. Once again, it took a lot of sifting through countless emails and selecting what we thought were the best cars, not just based on modifications or looks but also what the owners had to say. The passion and enthusiasm that goes into building a car is important to us, and we feel like the individuals who expressed those feelings the best now have the bragging rights to claim they were featured in Modified.

There’s a lot of variety and different styles of cars in this issue, and while some may not suit your tastes, remember that everyone builds their cars differently. To this day, I still shake my head and wonder why so many enthusiasts feel the need to please others with their cars rather than themselves. We all want some type of recognition for our accomplishments — that’s normal — but to base your entire build off of what others are saying is cool and trendy isn’t going to get you very far. If you look at the real trend-setting cars, they aren’t cookie-cutter builds that have been done a million times. They are in a class of their own — innovators instead of imitators.

To this day, I still shake my head and wonder why so many enthusiasts feel the need to please others with their cars rather than themselves.

Build your car the way you want it. If you like the track-inspired look but don’t want to risk driving your pride and joy on the road course, there’s nothing wrong with that. Don’t let others mock you for it. Or maybe you want to slam your car so low it’s dragging on the ground; even though I’m a function-over-form believer, I’ll never tell you to not do it.

Remember, it’s your car, so build it as you see fit. But, please, for everyone’s sake, don’t use knock-off parts.
