I dont really hate the car but Im sick of hearing about Skylines.

I consider it the ricer crutch.

Whatever they drive, Honda,Toyota Mitsubishi there excuse for losing or comment

" A Skyline would of won"

Like the damn things made by honda or toyota or whatever.

Maybe Nissan guys can say it but still. Anyone can just say an f16 would of won.

So I guess I cant stand the people hiding behind skylines like they own one

Oh yeah, Im sure its a great car but I think the NSX is a ripoff.

I just dont like ricers. Their annoying and wake me up at 3am cause they insist on going full throttle in a 25 mph zone. I sure hate Civics and Toyota Tercels with loud *** mufflers, yeah.....

I dont really like big SUVS like the H2 and expedition. But thats also more the drivers. If you actually use an SUV for what it is then great. I wish I had a Real Hummer I would go offroading all the time.

I can go on and on

I can deal with almost any type of car, except those with poor workmanship... The local yokels do all kinds of things.. I especially hate when they do chevy trucks... I've seen speedometer cables laying on exhaust pipes... Broken e-brake cables... Compression fittings on brakes... Fuel lines with kinks... Excess wires held up by electrical tape... Ladder bars that are only 10" long and made from 2" square steel... Exhaust systems where they expanded the pipe too much at the joints and just filled it with weld... Header flanges cut off and welded straight to the pipes... 2" nap fabic glued to everything in the interior and all the bezels painted with cheap silver spray paint, Obviously the same brand they used for the satin finish blood red body... This was just one truck. And the guy was happy to have "only" paid $2500....

Camry > Accord. For its intended purpose, the Camry fills its shoes quite well. I would pay the extra premium over a 3.4L Impala. At least I know I won't **** intake gaskets and will be about as fast (seriously), and have considerably better reliability and build quality.











I personally can't stand automotive ignorance. Having spent many many hours on both sides of the American and Japanese fence, it'* quite common.

Round here the fart can, wing and rims get these guys wound up.

I pulled up and had fun with a 92 bone stock prelude SI that I had. Most of them were newer and tons more money... you know who did what. lol

Now I'm just doing it in style. They are gonna have a fit when Aug 20th gets here.

Wouldn't be as cost effective. Yes, there are incentives, but the Cam is cheaper to boot. Still my preference (actually, I'd go with a four-cylinder SE 5-speed model, but similar pricing regardless).
