      A sedan?

      So Scion couldn't hack it making niche cars so they're going to make things the average consumer wants.

      Good business, but entirely uninteresting.

      There is no car, in any category, at any price point that I would not want to change something.

      No car is perfectly suited to my tastes right out of the factory.

      When I get my new Focus RS,...

      It doesn't seem that far fetched to me.

      If I had to choose between running Laguna Seca in a 100hp minivan or my 40 mile bumper-to-bumper commute to work in a new GT3, I'll take the minivan.

      The AC Delco in my Tacoma made it 9.5 years. The Odyssey PC680 in my Focus is shockingly 7 years old. I had an original Optima (new ones are meh) that made it almost 13 years being passed from car to...

      The lengths in question for manifold tuning are for valve to plenum. (Or atmosphere on a car without a plenum).

      Before the plenum, the intake's only performance optimizations are to provide the...

      I became a believer in that saying after I turned a couple slow cars into fast cars.

      On backroads, my Focus with 130hp was more fun to flog than it is now with 250hp. Corners come up much faster...

      I've actually seen that thing in person at the Concours d' LeMons.

      I know. I'm not special.

      I'll get e-punched for this because they look nothing alike....

      But... they're identical under the skin except the wheelbase. The Charger's wheelbase is 2.2 inches shorter.

      Hmmm... Yeah.

      As far as "American".... The Tundra is pretty much just as American as the Dodge. Engineered in this market, by people in this market, for this market.

      155bhp would be enough for me... but I expect we'll see more.

      Power and fun are mutually exclusive.

      I'm really conflicted with the latest batch of V6 pony cars.

      I hated the old 3.8/3.9L Essex because it was out of date.
      I hated the 4.0 SOHC Cologne because it was out of date.
      I hated the 3.5L...

      Couldn't they have picked one in an uglier color? I cried seeing that pretty blue getting all distorted. :(

      Well... My daily driver is a 2002 SVT Focus.

      Practical reasons for buying:

      1) It was $1500.
      2) We needed a comfortable four-seater, as my Tacoma, Charger, Cortina, and track Focus no longer...

      This probably explains why I like my RS four-spokes so much. These would be butt-tacular without the lug-to-spoke lineup:

      To put time and depreciation into perspective, four of those five vehicles in the original poster have run in the 24 Hours of LeMons... more than once.
