Battle Creek Michigan

23 posts in this topic

i just got back from 5 days in battle creek... most of you guys from michigan are probably wondering "why the hell would you go to battle creek?"... well i had a national gymnastics competition there... so i unfortunately was stuck there for 5 days...

the place sucks... its boring as hell... the cereal city place run by keloggs is awful... the zoo is half decent... and every girl i saw except the ones from outside michigan was not attractive...

but what i really want to share... is what happened in the rental car...

we walk up to the Hertz counter... im fully expecting an impala or G6... so im prepared for a nice ride but a generally boring powertrain... and then i hear this from my fathers mouth "oh you have a charger? we'll take that" my eyes widen... but then i remember... rental... its gunna be a V6... damn...

we walk onto the lot and find the car... and i see two letters that for that instant make me a very happy kid... "R/T" on the back of the car... i dont even let my dad start it... i immediately check under the hood to verify... and there it is... a 350 hp 5.7 liter hemi sitting in this RWD sport sedan... maybe battle creek wont suck so bad after all

i was wrong

there is actually only one complaint i have... but the complaint pretty much destroys any possibility of fun in the car... the suspension... floats more than my moms 2004 caddy DHS... it ruins the entire experience... the power is there... you can hear it... but you cant feel it... the suspension doesnt let you feel a thing... this car would easily destroy mine in a race, but if you didnt know the numbers on the engines... and had a ride in both... you would pick mine as the more powerful... a SPORT sedan should not float... it should stick to the road and let you feel everything... but this doesnt... and it ruined the whole thing... and im very dissappointed in DCX for doing that

Yeah, my friend's '95 Neon feels a lot faster than mine, but that don't mean a damn thing :AH-HA_wink:

Anyway, there aren't many gorgeous girls or great places for a teen to visit in Michigan..

I'm sure the Midwesterners on the site won't dig your dig. Hey, I went to the Univ. of Illinois from the other coast and boarded a plane 2 hours after my last final. Ciao, baby. It's not me. I'm a southern latitudes kind of person. Spring and summer only? No change of seasons? NO problem. That's what plane rides to Montreal for peak color are for!

Incidentally, a lot of Midwestern chicks will (eventually) put on a caboose. If not sooner, than later. Part of it is those big Germanic and Scandinavian frames (look at wrists and ankles as a foretelling feature) and the other is that it's easy to want to eat when you're stuck inside and it's face-freezing cold.

It's true. Though there are some real hotties around Indiana...but only in the richer areas. There really is an inverse relationship between wealth and obesity.

i wasnt sayin that all michigan girls are ugly... i was just relating my experience haha... just the fact that there wasnt even anythin pleasant to look at made the place even worse is all im saying... and thats only in one town... and i couldnt have possibly seen every girl in town... so im going on a very small observation here...

If that's to me, then yes, there are some good looking ones. Unfortunately, most of them are bitches or drink far too often.

I know some of the former but none of the latter.

Cool, I always wondered the inverse of "latter."

Bullllll&#036;h&#33; you went to a JoCaine concert you should be telling stories!

Also as far as Battle Creek goes, it's produced the only possibly positive thing and that's.......

I'd have to agree with Josh an that one...

I think he's back now too...I heard he was out a while.

I guess I can agree about the fun part, but there is a lot of places to RELAX up north.... 8)

I can always install firm shocks on a Charger and it will

probably cost me about 03% of the cost of converting a

Impala, Lucerne or DTS to longitudinaly-mounted

engine & RWD with IRS. :wink:

Your complaint of the suspension being too soft makes

me want an R/T even more. It's the motion of the ocean!

Well, that doesn't make Port Huron a great place because Edison was born there :AH-HA_wink:

Yeah, we have good concerts and stuff, but our city is nowhere near as nice as other big cities.. aka where Detroit SHOULD be but can't be.

I've been to Port Huron on a road trip.

All they've got is a mall and a bunch of Canadians. Lame ones.

Thankfully, our Canadian members around here aren't lame! :canada:
