      The top speed of some cars is terrifying. I mean cars like my old Nissan Sentra. I topped that car out at around 110mph and cheated death when hitting the brakes. The car felt like it was going to...

      As far as I'm concerned if it can safely go over 150mph and remain stable and controllable then it's a fast vehicle. I wouldn't consider a Yugo GV with some dragster doohickeys to make it accelerate...

      If the Boxster was stolen I'd be really annoyed. On the other hand Porsche made like a quarter million of these things so it's not like the insurance company couldn't find me another one.

      I usually do not care about wheels at all and am not picky but in this case I agree with you 100%. They just look 'correct.'

      The M249 (and M240) are really good chuckle factories in full auto. I am not going to say they would be boring in semi auto... but I'm also not saying that they'd be nearly as much fun. Even a short...

      You want the fans to run more often. Dark colored FEWC Porsches have a tendency to cook themselves on a hot summer day. My fans used to run for a few minutes after the car shut off and I'm glad they...
