I drove a 280Z once. It was fun. Dunno if that counts, though.

An NB Miata is something I'm keeping in mind if I go for a dedicated track/AutoX car at some point.

My dad still has his 240Z he's aiming to restore someday. Something I doubt I'll ever get the chance to actually drive.

A member here once recommended that I get a fox body Mustang as my first project car. I ended up going with an AW11 MR2, but every now and then, I get envious of the Mustang's aftermarket and support. Definitely something for me to consider for my next project... whenever that is.

On topic, coincidentally, I was catching up on RCR's videos today. Although I'm not a huge fan of his forced sense of humor (my opinion), it's definitely refreshing to see light-hearted reviews that are entertaining and provide a perspective outside of the numbers. His technical errors aside, he's been pretty spot on with the cars I've driven.

Prices on early C4 Corvettes have come down. Don't know too much about them, but I'd think that comparing them year-to-year with the Mustang, the Corvette would provide a better base.

That was... kind of sad.

I haven't taken too close of a looking at the '15 WRX, but from what I understand, it's more refined than the previous ones. I guess refinement took away some of its character.

On the plus side, since it's looks are definitely muted, it shouldn't attract as much attention from the popo.

I kind of agree with him. It's interesting how much the WRX/STi changed over the years. The current design lacks the character of the GC and GD line but I'll still take it over the 3rd generation Impreza. Character aside, even back when I was in college, I still thought the STi looked almost comical with the obnoxiously large hoodscoop and pink STi lettering in the front. I preferred the more "get down to business" look of the Evo 8/9 at the time.

Drove the 15' wrx and I fell in love with it, it's a great DD vehicle and if you just want to do some light track, it would handle it perfect. They have stepped up their game with the interior, love Carbon fiber and black leather They used on the one I saw.

The random bumper stickers on the rear window thing is kinda weird, but Haku, so okay.

I almost bought one but was being impatient the look didn't really grow on me so ended up with '13 WRX instead. Love the car though. I've never really owned a fun car until last year and it's been looking forward to driving it every chance I get. All stock except the muffler delete.

A little shoot I did last summer.

Just wanted to say that on the drive yesterday I passed a Dodge Challenger. As I did so I paid close attention to the trunk lightbar and sure enough... it's not aligned. laugh2.gif Thanks RCR, I'll never see the Challenger the same way ever again.

I had to rewatch that episode. Now I have to go out and check. ^^

Regardless of its faults, the Challenger is one bada** car. One day, summit girl...
