Honda Civic GT-R Turbo!

I'm sorry the picture is a total FAIL because of the angle of the sunlight. I saw this base model looking Honda Civic coupe with a young driver on my way home today and hoped to be able to get a decent photo of the badging he put on the back of it. The sunlight put what I wanted to capture in the shade, so it's really difficult to see here. The first thing that caught my eye was the chrome badge on the right side of the trunk lid that says "Turbo" in cursive. Then while I was trying to take the picture, I noticed the subtle GT-R (written like how it is on the Nissan GT-R) on the bottom of the chrome license plate frame.

I couldn't hear any turbos other than my own, and the huge diesel truck behind me.

To each his own... but I think it's funny nonetheless. I find it interesting when people put stickers and badges on their cars, even if they have those features or mods, but especially if it's some base model or basic pickup truck or Chrysler 300 that's got huge wheels (that probably costs $1000 per year in tires) and they try to make it look like some sort of high performance vehicle. I like how my car is just a discrete little sedan with stock 18" wheels, but it performs with a high level of sophistication and refinement, not to mention the power it has.

There are plenty of people who have really nice cars, that have a commuter car like a civic or prius.
True, but the turbo badge as well? That makes the second car GT-R theory a bit far fetched.
