Funny vehicles that people tend to try to modify for looks and performance, but all they get is a POS. Most of the common cars that people tend to modify are oldschool 87-89 honda civics,accords, saturns and chevy astro vans,
HAHA dude check out that civic: Bean type-R!

A special edition of the Honda civic witch true version has only been sold in japan and recently Australia. Meant to be a much more sportier and of course faster civic. The earlier type Rs had b16s and produced upwards of 180hp.

Civic Type RR is a new limited production "300 cars" model of the 2008 honda civic. with 240hp and 160 foot pounds. Available only in red.
person 1: damn did you just see that civic type R eat that subi up.
Person 2: Hell yeah that things built.

A front-wheel drive lightly modified version of the Honda Civic. Usually has 200hp, and absolutely shite around corners if you give it any performance modifications and no handling modifications. Favoured by ricers in the States and by skangers, skobes or Antos in Ireland.
Random Anto: Jaysus bud did ya see me Honda Civic Type R it went fooken floyin down Sherdiff Stree.
A D4: OH MY GOD you're such a skobe.
Randomer: Look at that piece of shit Honda Civic Type R it's such a ricer!

one of the most common JDM cars in import racing mainly because it's cheap and runs like stink. sadly the type r has been steryotyped as the typical ricer car which sometimes is the case because they put cheap parts on it from wal-mart while most of the time true tuner JDM drivers look hard for good parts that are usuley somewhat expensive and have swapped drivetrains from fron wheel to rear wheel for better power output and bodykit helps aerodynamics and looks cool while ricers just buy cheap interchangible bodykits that dont do shit
ricer: i just g0t my new b0dykit f0r my vtec y0!
tuner: i just swapped the drivetrain on my EK civic type r coupe it was expensive but the extra power is worth it
muscle: nice
ricer: hey you wanna race bet i can beat you
tuner: sure
(ricer walks to car)
muscle:this will be too easy for you why'd you say yes
tuner: to teach him a lesson on proper modification

A decent yet overrated shooter.

The story: The evil Bydo aliens threaten to take over Earth. Only some guy in a fighter called the R-9 can destroy the Bydo and save the planet.

The gameplay: The game introduces a unique item called a force pod. It can be attatched to the front or back of the ship and can fire secondary weapons and absorb bullets. It can be detached from the ship allowing it to hit hard-to-reach places with its own bullets. This game series is very difficult and requires intense memorization skills.
R-Type Leo is my favorite R-Type game even though it has different gameplay from other games in the series.

The "Racing" type version of a vehicle, or any other motorized object.
