Saw a pretty hot girl driving the snot out of a modded S2000 a few days ago. Normally I hate to see some worthless cu*t in a performance car blocking traffic with her bad driving.
'10 G37x 7AT
Gone but not forgotten: '99 Camaro SS 6MT | '00 Mustang GT 5MT | and a bunch of Maximas and other cars...
I need to find a base turbo four with a blown engine and swap in the premium luxury car drivetrain that completely transforms the car.
"I owe it to myself, and to my choir students, to not be upset about barns."
I actually don't care about this sort of stuff in the normal sense. There's a kid on campus who honest to God drives around in a bright yellow Gallardo Supperlegera. It's incredible what some of these college kids are driving around in. Regardless, whenever I see it I just think "Meh, good for them," and go about my business. However, when someone pulls up to a stoplight in a nice MGA or SAAB c900 turbo or something like that I always covet it massively. People who drive those types of cars have to go out of their way to do so though, so you always know that the owner appreciates what they have.
The W8 was a really nice motor that suffered from terrible packaging and ****ty cam adjusters (made worse by the terrible packaging).
Attached to the 6-speed it was a pretty nice motor for the era. The power numbers didn't tell the whole story: a very flat torque curve, lots of low down power.
It was no where near as good driving with the 5-speed.
Too bad about the maintenance costs that would make an M5 blush.
