      Aside from the roof mechanism, there really isn't anything "specialty" about the C70. It shares a drive train with almost every other volvo from the time period, suspension components (at least most...

      I'd go for the C70. The drivetrain probably isnt as up your alley (Turbo I5 vs the pentastar), but everything else would be better, IMO. Parts are not THAT expensive, and there are a lot of good...

      I believe ford engineers have said that DI provides no benefits in the Coyote engine, which is why it is still port-injected. I don't know if that is true or they are just holding back for a...

      That sounds reasonable to me as well. Gains power and features but stays the same weight.

      Oh I know, I drove a 3900lb GTO around for a couple of years. :P I'm not at all surprised by the weight, just making an observation.

      So figure 4400lbs for the Hellcat, once you add the supercharger, heat exchanger, wider wheels, etc.

      It's kind of disgusting on one hand, and very impressive that (such a heavy car can move so...

      I'm pretty sure the Camaro will be riding on the larger CTS version of the Alpha platform, rather than the shorter ATS. It should still drop weight, though. A base CTS is still under 3700lbs, IIRC.

      Dont look at the net gain, look at the percentage of power gained. $1700 for nearly 25% more power is a freakin steal IMO. :confused:

      It may not be lighter than an Alpha-platform Camaro. At least it has a suspension from this century, though. :P

      It's a lot less expensive and much easier to install and remove. Think of it more like nitrous and less like a traditional supercharger.

      No preggo for a long time! My wife is 25 and wants to be at least 30 before we have kids. Can't afford nor have a place to put 3 cars. I don't really have a desire to keep the Si anyway--it's a...

      Dont say that or I'll end up in a MK7 GTI in a year!

      Yeah, my car has 9000mi on it and I'm already lining up the replacement. :P

      The newest Camry hybrid has more power than a 320i, actually (200hp vs 180hp) and is only about 200lbs heavier.

      That the camry hybrid can get to 60mph in under 8 seconds and return damn near...

      At the sub-$15k price point, you will have to go for a previous generation model of either of those cars. That could be seen as a positive for the Si though, since you would still get the 8000rpm...

      Agreed. It's pretty much why I bought the car--I wanted a reliably, economical, relatively practical car with good resale that was not boring to drive. Yeah, you will get dusted by the 6-cyl...

      I didn't realize the 5.7L was that slow. Is it even a 13 second car?
