Out of those 3, the GTP. Raw power. I love manual trannies, and it'* one of the most important things to me, but i wouldn't want the VQ35 engine, or the V6 accord. Not enough low end torque.

The accord is kinda too soft for me, and the new ones are kinda bulgy and ugly.

The new maxima is also a fat ***. Looks UGLY, and i could swear they're bigger then our cars.

But all things being equal, and instead of spending the money those cost (specially the maxi) i'd go spend my $30k on a LS1, manual GTO.

The GTP has alot more capability in the long run. It'* more mod-friendly. That SC opens up EASY mods.

GTP for all the above reasons, but the Max for style and class...I'd lean on a Max I think

I'm sure the Maxima is nice. The new ones do look a little funny though, not too too bad. I'd go with the GTP for what was already posted. I love the 3800, and would enjoy modding it. Lots of possibilties.

They're all too small in my book. I like as close to full-sized cars as I can get. How 'bout a nice Caddy???

Just wondering why you dont like foreign cars, not trying to start anything just curious



I would lean towards the Maxima as well, you got to love those Nissan engines, especially ones that decended from the RB25

I know now days the world is a global economy, and alot of "foriegn" cars are made here now, but it goes back to the days when I was a kid. I've been a union member for along time, and my dad, and my grandad were union,..it was kinda DRILLED into my head,..don't buy foriegn stuff. Only things made in the good ole USA, (or Canada, cause most people don't really consider Canada, foriegn.) Anyway, I can't help myself,..when something is pounded in your head long enuff, ...well it sticks! I know it'* kinda a dumb reason, but.......
