    The cars loved by you and no one else..

    Over the years I have realized that some of my all-time favorite cars wouldn't be looked at twice by most of my friends. Now obviously they are clueless to not realize the infinite-awesome of 80's J-tin boxes like the Cressida, and they just don't get it if they can't understand why I would rather have a 4 door Kenmeri than a GTR Hakosuka. To me those cars could and should be loved by anyone. However, I can't explain why some of my favorite cars appeal... I waste way too much time daydreaming of a late 90's Mitsubishi Mirage dumped low on Volk barrels, and I have lusted after mid-90's Jeep Cherokees for ages. I get super hyped about Volvo wagons, and I must own a Protege5 with a list of Racing Beat parts before I die. I silently plot to steal a little old lady's 1st gen Prelude across town, and sometimes I ask my girlfriend to go on random drives across the river into Ohio, (where thousands of car guys enjoy relaxed motor vehicle laws). I tell her we're just going for the scenery, but I'm plotting to find a neglected 87 Fiero or Subaru SVX.. does anyone else do this or am I breathing too much premix? Who's got a top-5 list of cars they'd love to own that would make your neighbors wonder if you're okay?

    The Grand Cherokees were hideous, a guy in town has the se-r with the sr20vet, JDM Nissan variable-valve timing right? I think he imported the motor.. here's a Mini to suit your needs...

    That mini was awesome, I fell in love with those a few years back when I saw one in person. As soon as it hit vtec, that little car was gone.

    And yes that's correct about the Sr20vet, they also run a bigger turbo then the det, the vet has a T25 turbo.

    I only love underdog-cars that almost nobody likes. These are my favorite cars:

    Subaru Leone III



    HDPIC Hundai Precision Galloper II



    Toyota Camry V2



    KIA Opirus



    SsangYong Musso



    and many more!
