@TheDude69 That and my 34mpg is fine. Sure beats my Camaros 8mpg. But that's basically turning into a circuit track car.

@TheDude69 Why would I go through the trouble of pulling out a 4 cylinder, just to put in another 4 cylinder that is only a tiny bit bigger?
I wouldn't go so far as to say Honda built a fun car to drive for every budget. Maybe if your budget is a underpowered 4 cylinder in a squeaky and rattly car then yeah, go with a CRX or the Integra. Or for the same price, buy something off of craigslist that has a V8. Or a used BMW. I own 2 BMW's and they cost around $2000 added together. One is a donor car though.
There should be a movie where someone steals it. It looks like robbing a bank would be easier...

@arsinek Pretty sure everything was better in the 90's. 90's seemed the time where people wanted hot rods and whatever else that was fast. They didn't care about the heated seats and cup holders. New exotic cars have A/C and 18 different heat settings, heated and cooled seats, 6 cup holders, plush leather comfy seats and everything else that makes the car not painful to drive or even irritating. The 90's, if you wanted a fast car, you bought one, if you wanted a luxury car, well then you had to buy that seperate. My E36 M3 rides like shit, rough and painful and no cup holders so you better buy a bottle and not a can. For long distance driving, it's my favorite car to take. Then I have a 1994 Camaro with a home built 383 stroker with a Holly double pumper. Fun to cruise around town in. Cup holder sits between the arm rest and my shifter, so it's useless lol.
Then I have driven a few new vehicles, none of which appealed to me. Can't feel the road, drive by wire, throttle by wire, super spongy and soft motor mounts, traction control and warning lights and annoying dingers that ding when I don't put on my seat belt or have my lights on or I blinked my eyes and it panics thinking I'm not paying attention to the road.
Nice car, minus the big fart can in the back that can evidently eat your foot.

I mean, it's a concept car, the seats they have on here versus the seats that they will actually use are so different that the only thing they have in common is that you sit in them.

@hanablemoore You mean to tell me that in America you have to get a special package of car to get a manual tranny?

@japanophile25 @TimMorgan Yeah, it's a Cadilliac, the cheap alternative to a real luxury car. It's the kind of luxury car you buy when you want notchy / stiff steering, torque steer and boat like handling. They say it's lighter than the previous model, but then compare it to a BMW. Which yeah, weighs 200 pounds more, has more driving options as far as suspension goes, which doesn't matter to be because I don't buy luxury cars and wish that they were track cars. I buy track cars and deal with harsh rides. So you can VIP it all you want, but really all that means is put on a boring paint job, add some chrome strips around the doors that you buy from autozone, then put on some stupid rims with bad alignment. When GM makes a luxury car, I will look into it, but right now they charge way too much money for a boat with wheels on it with handling issues that no other luxury car has, too big for it's own good, is the height of a truck and now comes with turbos that the average grandma won't let properly warm up or cool down.

You spent all that effort on the car, a great effort. Car probably feels amazing. But you may as well paint the hood to match the rest of the car. So many people don't paint their hood "because it's carbon fiber". But yet they will paint their stainless DeLoreans. It really does show laziness in my opinion to see a hood that isn't painted just because of the material it's made from.

@LS1RX7_owen @BlackJacket @Lastspark Except for the part where if it isn't quite running right, it takes 30 seconds to fix. No computer hookup required, everything is a million times easier to diagnose. You don't need 8 ignition coils, one works perfectly fine, they are engineered to work like that. And the valve angle is perfectly fine, why? Because the heads are engineered to work like that. I would put money on the fact that his engine has the same horsepower as any LSx with the same reliability at half the cost. That is, if he built it right. Which I am guessing he did. And before you go on about weight, did you know that you can get old style V8 blocks in aluminum? And heads? And intake? Holy crap it's like DART or Kieth Black or whoever took the perfectly good old style components and made them better! I'm guessing you didn't know that was possible. Also, the oil pump is perfectly fine. I run a high volume and I have never had a single problem with it. So that argument doesn't even matter. Enjoy having computer problems and spending 9 hours wiring up a car and then trying to figure out what wire is shit out of the 600 feet under the hood alone. I'll be on the track.

@JDMized @Mighty_Mite50 I have a cheap ass brand of rims on my BMW called ACR. They look amazing and no big shot company makes the style that I have, except most of ACR stuff is knock off. Maybe if BBS didn't make two kinds of rims, and if Kreigger didn't only make the SS looking rim which is ugly as shit, then I would have bought a name brand rim.
Fuck yeah, old style V8. Any pos with a LSx engine won't be able to touch this thing when he's done.
@andrewhake Except for the fact everything on this car is computerized and the cost of production is so far through the roof with a shitload of technology you don't need. The F1 was simple and pure. And it's hard to beat a center driving position when it comes down to track driving or shitty highway traffic going through a city.
