[QUOTE=bradley;35108620]Are you sure it wasn't a Fiero kit? They're pretty common.[/QUOTE]
I watched a couple of videos on YouTube to see how it sounds, and they sounded almost identical compared to each other. Also isn't the fiero kindof small, the 348's ass looks a lot wider. If it was a kit car they did a damn good job on it :v:
Saw one of these today.
Sterling....Kit car. I guess they're made with the frame from a Beetle. The one I saw was part Baja too. :v:

[quote]The "kit cars" and parts manufactured by Sterling Sports Cars LLC. are sold as components. The cars are not pre-assembled by Sterling Sports Cars but are intended to be assembled by the purchaser or by a third-party. The Sterling was originally designed to be fitted to a VW Beetle floor pan but supplies of these have diminished, so a new model, the Sterling RX, uses a special made mid engine tube chassis design to fit the Subaru or other smaller but high HP engine.[/quote]
Here's some pictures from when I was at my old job.
These ones I got to drive:
Chevy Silverado - not very common here in Australia)
BMW M3 (didn't get a picture of the outside - I'm sure you all know what they look like)
These ones I DIDN'T get to drive ;-;
GT-R (which is now completely wrapped in matte black vinyl)
Matte black painted M3
With CF roof
I can't remember what this is (i no gud wif merican carz)
One'a thems Lamborghini things
One'a thems Porche Carrera S Turbo things
A Toyota FJ Cruiser when they first came out in Aus (and a blue one in the side mirror)
And a nice little MX-5 parked near the Subaru dealer
Saw this one yesterday.

Picture of a real Countach for comparisons:
I thought it could be a replica because it looked somewhat damaged.
And still, who would ever own a Countach in Poland?
I would rock a countach replica.
But only if it was V8 powered.
I saw an M3 at my apartment complex the other day, but my phones broken again. :(
That roofline reminded me of the roofline on the Audi A6.
Saw a Nissan GT-R as well as an Audi R8 at a gas station that time.
Last night saw a Range Rover Evoque in the parking lot. They're bloody expensive here.
As well as the probably newly launched SLS AMG Roadster.
Saw this the other day. Notice it's size in comparison to the puny Honda CR-V next to it. Most Malaysians buy the H3 because it has a smaller engine than this. But H2's are common too.
I don't get why people take pics of 911's :v:
[QUOTE=Ferosso;35190635]I don't get why people take pics of 911's :v:[/QUOTE]
Because for most people, it is the CLASSIC Sports Car. That, and it's expensive. People like taking picture of expensive cars to say "HEY LOOK WHAT I SAW, I SAW SOMETHING COOL!"
Plus (Hammond Moment), I really like the 911. A 911 Turbo with Whale Tail :jizz:
Even a new 911 would be fine though, I love it.
[sp]Don't fix what ain't broke[/sp]
911s are stupid. I've driven two, one standard 911 and one 911SC. Both of them felt like driving a beetle -- The 911SC was a critical disappointment. I've also driven a 944, 944 turbo, 928, and briefly driven a 914. All of them were... Boring. The 914 was kind of cool but only because it was so odd.
I have never driven any Porsche model I've liked. None of them really felt amazing to me, I'd rather have something cheaper and faster, with the engine in the correct place.

Beetles are fun though -- because they are beetles.
Porsches shouldn't feel like beetles.
Speaking of how cars feel to drive, one guy I know on another forum compared the Murcielago and the F355:
[QUOTE]I had a bit of seat time in an automated manual (flappy paddle) Murcielago a few years ago and liked it, but the stupid thing was very intimidating because it's so large on the outside and hard to see out of. I got to open it up on the highway and it was a blast, but I dunno. Disconnected is how I'd describe it, like driving a really low SUV. About a year after that I had a 6-speed, 3 pedal Ferrari F355 to myself for an entire afternoon and while I didn't go (as) crazy in it, I enjoyed that experience much more. It's a smaller, more intimate, more comfortable, and just a nicer place to be than in the Lamborghini. After the first half hour I stopped worrying about it being a Ferrari (and not mine; I drive my friends' cars all the time and I white-glove them like crazy) and could relax and enjoy the experience. I knew I'm in something really special, yet I wasn't worried I would accidentally bump into something it's so gigantic. The Ferrari felt like something I could pick up some groceries in without having to plan ahead for traffic or parking. As much as I like cars like these, they're entertainment objects and tools, and should work for my purposes and not the other way around.
My favorite part about the Lambo was sitting at stop lights with people looking at the car, and then pressing a button near the armrest between the seats and making the cooling vents behind the driver and passenger lift up.[/QUOTE]
Rather interesting, IMO.

That's my problem with supercars. They look cool and exotic, but once you get in, it's like "Holy crap, I'm in a car the width and length of a truck yet it costs over 200,000 dollars. Oh boy!"
Was on a walk on campus today and saw this lil number.
I want to kick myself for not taking a photo, but while I was on a vacation in Florence, Italy I was walking down an alley and onto a small cobble stone road and saw a guy who just bought a Lamborghini. It was like brand spanking new, he was even removing the plastic wrap covers on everything.

What kind of Lambo was it?
[QUOTE=Herr General;35307618]What kind of Lambo was it?[/QUOTE]
I didn't stick around long enough to really find out. Although the man probably would've appreciated the gawking, I didn't want to be rude.

I suppose that's understandable.
Personally, assuming I was actually able to converse with him, I would have stuck around and talked with him about it if he didn't mind.

I definitely would've talked to him but there was a big language barrier. Him being Italian and me being American.

Babada boopee? Babadebeepadebabadee boopa!
This checker cab blew all four tiers!
I just noticed something in the corner of a picture I took, I didn't notice until some time after.
Is that an Excalibur? I put a radio into one once, interesting car for sure.
I've seen various super and hyper cars in my life, but the most impressive and rarest thing I've seen was this:
Sporting that livery too.
And yes, it was real.
Saw it in Sedona, Arizona a while back at a small car show. It was fucking amazing.
Later that day we got to watch it tear up a back road from on top of a small mountain too. That was even more amazing.
