I'm not angry because you made fun of my econobox, it's nice having people that don't agree with everything you say around here. As long as we stay civil about it. Also, the Supra is a bona fide tuning machine. Someone who likes cars and would rather drive something that will surprise them any time they want will drive the Supra. Someone who wants to be safe and probably bored to death while driving would want that bone-stock Accord. Oh, dumbasses who think they can DORIFTU will want the Supra too. But let's not talk about them. They'll probably wind up dead somewhere anyways, from sliding off the side of a cliff or slamming into a pole at 80mph.

Some of those guys barely even drive their supras.

It's a standard and even though it only has 4 cylinders I have a really good time driving it. [editline]17th April 2011[/editline] And it has an intake! Adds about 2 hp dude

I can understand not wanting to look like a douchebag. There are still other cars I would have over the Accord, but meh. If I had a choice between the Supra and the Accord... Actually, I'd probably go with the Accord myself. Mainly because the resale value is probably better than that of the Supra. It's hard to get rid of an MK4 unless it is super pretty or super ratty, and if it was ratty the Accord would fetch more anyways... -_-

I just hate the bodykits people put on Supras. stock4lyfe

That isn't a '90s Accord. >_> I wouldn't own a '90s Accord. I'm not stupid and they are ass ugly.

Oh well, I'm happy at least.
what im saying is, the resale value isn't worth it. the supra has a higher resale value than any accord

I'd rather be comfortable than have a fast car. You'd just speed speeding to the next red light, you aren't getting anywhere faster. And EVERY car would be fun on the track.
I wouldn't doubt you would be comfortable in a supra. You don't have to speed between every light, it's just nice to have that power at your fingertips (or toetips i guess) when you need (or want) it.

Absolute monster in the snow. I love racing kids in Honda Civics and blowing them away off the line, it's quick as a rabbit, but takes 14 decades to turn.

And EVERY car would be fun on the track.[/QUOTE] Ok so I disagree 100%. I own a 2008 Mazda 3 hatch. The suspension is stiff, the tires are thin, and the seats are hard. I'm not particularly comfortable sitting in my car, but damn I wouldn't change it for the world. When I want to push it a bit, the car goes. It grips the road and then some. I don't have to be speeding to be enjoying driving. It's the fact that I am driving a car that's sportier that I enjoy. It's the mindset of the driver. I enjoy driving, so I'd rather have a car that's fun to drive than comfortable to sit in. Today I went out and drove 100 miles on back roads. I wouldn't be particularly up to doing that if I was driving some long and heavy sedan.

Generally, car lovers buy their cars for the few moments of gigantic pleasure you can get, not for everyday driving comfort. I for instance drive a Fiat Grande Punto (not exactly a hot ride) and in the country i live in it's a pain in the ass to live with, since the roads are in poor condition and the suspension is quite stiff, plus it's hard and expensive to service it, but the few times I've made a mountain pass or a winding country road in it the experience has been fantastic, i love the little thing, even though the engine sucks balls the handling makes up for it big time.

I have a shitload of cool cars but I'll talk about the least mentioned. I have a 1983 Dodge Rampage. The particular version is a direct connect model, which was only made 284 times if I recall correctly. It has a standard transmission making it 1 of 10 remaining (estimate). It used to belong to my great grandfather Ronhagan, who was grandmaster gearhead when it came to engines. I'm guessing he bought it from the dealership new. This particular one is red with black interior, it also has every possible sport addition on it exept for the rear box cover. It is powered by a Chrysler 2.2 I-4 with a aluminum cylinder head and should push around 100hp stock. This car is very light due to its compact design but is still very tough. The engine starts up like new, even after siting for god knows how long in a field (10+ years). It seems very fast, I've been in a 2000 Camaro with a I-6 with twice the power as this car put it has nowhere as close to the pull of this car. I asume he has done some work to the car because alot of the things don't look 100% stock. The car is very rusty, I can't put it anyway elce. Anything under the door of the car has rust, above that its rust free. I plan to do some minimal work to it. Maybe fix the floors, take apart the rear axle and part of the engine. It was considered sporty for the time, its nowhere near the kind of car I like (old mopars, different story though) but I find a odd draw to it, I can't explain it, something you have to find out for yourself. I'll get pictures of it as I work on it but here's a similar image. [img]http://detroit.in.ua/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/rampage-300x119.jpg[/img] It has a big black 2.2 sticker on the hood though.
:fh: Rampages are awesome. Although a little piece of me has always wanted that generation of Charger platform to be RWD. ...Didn't stop me from owning 3 of them.
I have an '86 Cutlass Supreme. [img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/Cutlass_Sept_24th_2010_cropped_and_resized2.jpg[/img] Here's a vid walking around it and showing off the exhaust. 307 v8 engine.

What's with all the shocker signs everywhere? Just looks completely dumb slapped on the fender of an f-150 or a civic, imo.
Come on man, the only good cutlasses are 69-72.
[QUOTE=NuclearAnnhilation;29276259]Come on man, the only good cutlasses are 69-72.[/QUOTE] Come on, the Metric ones may not be great but don't shit on the 73-77, those things were a hoss. Despite me being a total import guy now, my first car was a '76 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, with the Brougham package, half vynil top and all. It was the 350 rocket with a 3-speed auto on the column, cream in color and tan interior. She was a big sled but a clean one, all original with like 58,000 miles on it. When you started it up you could sit there and feel the rumble of the V8... I do miss having a V8 car. Only for the awesome sound and the torque. Don't want the gas prices at all. yuck.
Oh come on, show my '86 some love too. :(
I absolutely love that Cutlass's grille. It's different, but subtle.
