    I'm sure we all have had a time where you wanted to screw with someones ride. Maybe as a joke for a buddy's birthday, or to get someone back for messing with you. I personally don't mess with peoples cars. I'll wait next to your car and punch you in the face before I mess with your ride no matter what you drive. People heal, cars need to repair.

    However, I've seen some really good 'pranks' done to peoples cars back in the day. Please refrain from anything that would be illegal such as "I broke all the windows, poured gas in it and burned it to the ground".

    I watched a kid put a smoke bomb in someones car back in High School. It was funny, but ruined his interior. Still couldn't stop laughing when the kid opened his door and tons of green smoke kept coming out of it, for like 10 minutes.

    There is the banana in the tail pipe trick. Not sure if it really works or not, but was funny in Beverly Hills Cop.

    I heard someone say take 3 zip-ties and link them together around the drive shaft and leave the ends on. Makes a horrible noise when they drive away!

    My buddy had his neighbors, daughters, boyfriend parking in front of his drive way a lot and wouldn't stop doing it. He talked to him a few times, the kid would just say "Fuck off" and stuff like that. The kid was very "MMA-Macho" as he put it. So what he did was grab a can of clear coat spray paint, and his daughters big ol' bag of pink glitter. Can you see where this is going?

    He didn't put any on the paint, but covered all the glass with the clear and just caked on pink glitter. This way he could get it all off if he wanted too but it wouldn't be an easy task. He covered each piece of glass pretty well but did the front windshield to the point where you can't see out of it. He told me the guy was so pissed off he ended up punching out his driver side window of his own car. Stupid Kids these days.

    What's your best auto-prank?

    I dont like meesing with peoples ride either as I dont want them messing with mine but we did put newspaper on our bosses car windshield and poured water on it in -40 weather so it would freeze and he would have to scrape it off.

    It was funny until another employee (not in on the joke) told our boss to just throw hot water on it. However he did scrape about 1/4 of it before the clever idea.

    Another was grease on the door handle. Nothing to brutal.

    Add-a-circuit to a fuse that's hot when the ignition is on and run that to the horn (disconnect the other power wire to the horn). Easily reversible, the car will run and drive normally but the horn will be on whenever the igntion is on.

    I like to hang my arm out the window and tap on the side as we roll. You pick up the pace as you move faster and the person driving usually thinks they have a flat. I say nothing and let them get out and check all 4 tires and then do it again when get moving. It works best when they have a new care or recently had a flat.

    A buddy of mine likes to put fish under the seat so it stinks in the summer time.

    Plastered a buddies care with porn magazines we found but almost got in trouble with campus police.

    Another one is to turn everything on when the car is off and turn the radio way up. Then when they start the car it freaks them out.

    1) We had a new guy at work who used to leave his car unlocked in the parking lot hoping it would get stolen for insurance. He pissed us off consistantly so we went to his car and using funnels poured glitter into every air vent we could find and turned the knob to full power so all he had to do was turn on the car . Yeah he had glitter in his hair for the next few days

    2) On my friends CRX we hooked up his horn to that switch on the brake pedal that triggers the tail lights , so everytime he hit the brakes we heard it.

    3) We also used to put " I <3 My Sailor " stickers on peoples bumpers at parties if they parked in the driveway

    I'm the same in I would never mess with someones vehicle. But since you brought it up..

    Those of you that might have seen Jack Ass. Ryan Dun (R.I.P) from Jack Ass, had his own show for a bit were he would help people get back at people that have had pranks pulled on them. Like setting up a fish market in some ones room. Any way.. he had mini pranks in the show. Two of them were awesome.

    1.) Take a hand full of glitter, and one of the flex pop open sun visors. Close the sun visor, in one of the pockets that it creates when you close it, pour the glitter. When they open the visor and it pops open.. well a face full of glitter/confetti.

    2.) Fill the intake air from the air conditioning with glitter/confetti, (The air opening on the dash ie defroster vent). Set there air to high. Makes a party in the car when they start it.

    When I was in high school I used to take my buddies head rest off and wedge it in my butt crack so it would smell like my sweety asshole. I would also take passenger side headrest and rub my junk all over it. If only his girlfriend knew she was getting tea-bagged by me each time she sat there.

    Would do a lot of stupid crap/pranks in high school.... was always good times.

    I did hear of a guy that hooked up his passenger air bag to a big read button that said 'do not push'.. If you pushed it, it deployed in your face. I never saw this, not even sure if it can be done, not even sure if its true, but it sounds like an awesome prank.

    If your willing to destroy your airbag that is.

    Zip ties ARE fun. I've done the zip ties to the drive shaft and it does make an annoying sound. It sounds like somethings going to cut through the floor. Another one is small rocks in an empty can zip tied to the frame of the truck. Powder in the vents. A whistler from a dog toy in the vents so it catches air (the new toys are handy for this, especially the ones that make duck sounds).

    It can be done but they can do a lot of damage. I saw a couple guys messing with old air bags and setting them off in a garage. They can be wired to a button although that might be a little overboard and expensive to repair!
