@AlanPeterson1 @wheatgod 4dr vs 2dr? you mean 5 vs 3..

If people don't buy many 3dr's then surely as a manufacturer you might as well make 5dr models which more people will buy

Patch up the supra as a short term project and sell it for a profit which can be used to fund a jz swap for the crown? That way the crown gets some lovin and the rare supra gets a happy new owner

Can we please just get it straight that "VW Audi Group" isn't, and never was a thing. VAG is Volkswagen AG. Audi is a subsidiary, not an equal partner. There is no evidence to support the wide misconception that VW Audi group ever was a thing.

Stumbled across Speedhunters through Nori-Yaro, as I found that SH had a more comprehensive feature on the 2009 JCCS New Year meet. I think this was about 4 years. Still reading every day! Getting to the point where I'll have my own project, just one more year. I've even bought a dSLR in an attempt to become good enough to get some pics on IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER, I got one from my iPhone featured way back at the beginning. This is just by far the best car culture website the world over.

Fantastic Paddy. Got to say, personally I dislike the whole 'VW scene", but I know that if I saw a dumped Golf, I know my eyes wouldn't be taken off it, because whether it has a VW, Ford, BMW or whatever other badge, a car is a car and that is the thing we all have in common and brings us together.

Surely its between Daigo and Loeb? No idea why they put Gitten Jr on the list, since he Daigo was clearly the better driver, winning two championships and a 3rd place finish in another while Gitten Jr came runner up in one championship. I don't mean to belittle the achievement of coming second, but Daigo achieved a LOT more this year.

But my vote went to Loeb - 9 consecutive titles.
