Lotus Exige S.... I got to drive one of these cars around Pacific International Raceway and fell in love. Nothing has gotten close tot he grip and noise this thing makes



Or a caterham super 7... OMG how can you get more real than manual steering no abs, direct throttle control and a manual transmission. Its a real car.

I still prefer the technology in making the smae amount of power from a motor that is 1/4 the size but have respect for the big blocks of the past.

One of my first jobs was working in a garage that flipped cars. My boss was a Chrysler Man. He would buy a used car about every week & we would repaint & repair anything that needed on these Chysler products.I worked there for 3 years. Every now & then he would get a Roadrunner or Cuda. At 18 in the 70's the muscle cars were so much fun to work on & test drive. We had a 69 roadrunner I wanted to take & rebuild but he used it as a parts car. No hemi, I don't remember what was in it other than it had the shaker hood & was beat up pretty bad. I always & still do want a 70 or 71 Challenger.

I like the GTM from Factory Five as well, but I'm actually looking forward to the upcoming Scion FR-S, if they actually keep the weight and price down.

that would be because the US versions were dumbed down and were way overpriced.... I would love to have a 2005 AMG with the Overland Package.... solid axles front and rear lockers, air suspension amazing 500hp v8.... IM SOLD

Cant say Ive ever been a fan of the G Class.... seems like a really expensive German Jeep. Not to mention, for the price and the gas mileage, I feel anyone could do better. lol
