Having 8 wheels might make up for the inferior "driver-engagement" :crackup:

1992 Honda Prelude Si. Loved that car. Wasn't fast, but handled well and was just a fun little sporty car. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm contemplating selling my Viper and picking up another Prelude...

Dodge should bring the car back instead of screwing around with the 25 different models of the Challenger.

I think their current business model is stuff the hellcat engine into anything they can.

The Gen 5 Viper sold poorly due to price - ironically ACR-Es, which started off around 130k or somewhere around there, are now selling for 250k+ preowned.

Honestly? Please forgive me... The "BEST" car I've ever owned was a 2007 Toyota Corolla S... I fucking loved that car. I bought it with 8,000 miles on it and never put a scratch it, even after putting it through hell. I could show you trails that the Corolla was on that most people wouldn't drive their lifted SUV on.. My Corolla is legendary to my friends because it made to Rogers Trough Trailhead in the Superstition Mountains... Go on, read the description of this trailhead... 4WD with high clearance recommended... How about a Corolla.

I sold it to my niece for $2500 a few years ago... It's been wrecked 7 times since I sold it and that bitch is still running... Damn car is worth 3x what I sold it for...

Second to that, my current 2019 GT is the runner up..

And yet I would take the Gen 5 Viper over the new Acura NSX any day. What an overpriced piece of shit. Why are they even thought they bring the car back is beyond me.

I had a 2005 Forester XT, which basically had the STI engine with the WRX turbo (easily corrected). It had a 5 speed and a differential with 4.46 gears. It was pretty much all done by about 85 mph, but it could launch like it was rear-ended by a semi. It could light up all 4 tires. It was the ultimate sleeper because nobody expects an SUV to weigh 3200lbs.

I can still drive it any time I get the urge to play with a nasty 4 banger turbo. I gave it to my son-in-law with about 120k miles on it. He has made a ton of additional mods and it's now pushing 200k miles. It's still a blast to drive!

I should mention I replaced the engine with a better one at 96K miles. Horizontally opposed engines are much more effected by bore scoring.
There's a Forester in AZ with a supercharged LS in it driven by a guy who's like 70...

The most fun car I had was a 2002 Nissan Sentra SER Spec V. I loved that car and drove it like I stole it. I traded it for a 2004 Mustang GT.

It wasn't the best car I have had or the fastest/best performer but it was a blast as a college kid car. I am sure if I drove one today it wouldn't live up to the memories but good times.

I always thought that would be a very cool swap. We saw a NA Chevy V8 Forester at tech inspection at the local dragstrip, setup to look like a sedan delivery (no side windows). It was tubbed and weighed 2850 lbs. It ran low 10s. It was one of those "fun run" nights where you run anything that passes inspection, so no classes.

Lack of available parts may be a deterrent. I have a 99 prelude and it’s rather discouraging to see he parts that are no longer available through Honda. Good thing I’ve been hoarding parts for the last 15 years…
