      Never really was interested until I took a ride in this beast. Now I feel like a ***** for driving a cabby. Someone build my confidence back up please.

      Good point haha. We made a u-turn and we were almost to the curb on a 2 lane road. And he lives next to some guys with 2 riced civics in his driveway, I bet that person is embarrassed.

      Anyone who owns a street registered car with a Lenco is someone worth knowing.

      GTFO with your German fanboyism. This thread is definitely not the place for it.

      If you're not talking about current cars, then why in the hell did you mention AMG and M?

      The Camaro is not a muscle car, it's a pony car if you want to get technical. You're also completely wrong even if you don't want to get technical, have you ever heard of TransAm racing?

      Nothing wrong with American Muscle. I love looking at the classics. Some of the new retro cars are pretty nice too.
      I also used to own a 95 Camaro Z28 and a 04 supercharged Monte Carlo SS, so I maybe a little biased

      Agreed, but when they are left to run rampant for as long as they want the people must police themselves. But yes, we should all put Crob on our ignore lists.

      How do you entertain yourself by being a complete dumbass, though? Never understood this. "It's fun to be a retard. I like being stupid and I like everyone else to think I'm mentally challenged." How does that amuse you? Maybe because it's not an act and you really are mentally challenged.

      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      Eh, I did it to Barry once when he was being an idiot so while I don't condone the behavior I understand it. If people would just relax and not get so riled up the internet would be a much better place. There are always going to be idiots, fanboys, and the ignorant biased among us. We can either ignore them, educate them, or let them get under our skins

      Muscle cars are terrific fun.

      Especially modern ones. The Camaro 1LE is undeniably a muscle car and it seems to be able to turn just fine.

      I laid 40 foot strips of tire in my GT yesterday with my mom in the passenger seat, scared the hell out of her but a good time was had by all. You can't do that in a cabby.

      Sell cabby, buy V8. Have fun. Don't look back.
