I kind of agree, I like the way the new Fords and Chevy's look but I think I would go with ford. My dad had a Chevy and problems all the time. Probably because its a GM.

It just doesn't do anything for me. It looks like every other corvette.

It looks a little different, But it is the engine that changed 620 horses. But The RX-8 can beat it. Oh and I forgot the other American power of trucks Dodge.



The guy were renting the house off of owns one of these. Dude they are sick. But I like Ford or Chevy better.
I really dont know about pickups if I like Chevy or Ford Better. I kind of Like ford I dont Know. SUV`s is defiantly Ford. Here are some of the less powerful trucks


Out of those two I like the ranger better.
Anyway I like Dodge. Chevy, or Ford better then those Trucks from like Europe. Only Americans make good trucks.

Ahh, but it's damned quicker than any other Corvette. It's rumored to cost around $100,000+ but for what you get, it's worth it if you ask me. Take the brakes for example...they're not just overpriced Brembo kits. The front brakes are from the Ferrari FXX and the rear brakes are from the front of the Ferrari Enzo.

Car enthusiast or not, I simply can't imagine somebody spending that kind of cash on a vehicle, unless money just isn't an issue in their lives.

Yeah, that is true. Almost any supercar you see is mostly for admiration. Almost all of them aren't practical to live with and the mileage is just insane. Then again, I'm sure if you owned such a car, you wouldn't drive it enough for mileage to be a big factor.

I recently did a job replacing a door for the house my sister lives in. Theres a jaguar in the garage, I have no idea what make or model, but they've been paying that thing off for years now, and it's seen less than 5,000 miles.

Yeah, thats why I'd rather buy older cars off Craigslist or something. I've found so many nice E30s and E36s for pretty cheap and they make really great daily drivers or track cars.

No the RX-8 cant beat it. Can we stop talking about how the RX-8 can beat any car on the street? Its really getting annoying.

I agree. The RX-8 is a great car, but this argument hasn't really gotten anywhere.
