Yea the mazda and the ranger community is the same way very laid back. Everyone get along, such a easy going group of people. I came over to the focus forums and you have to struggle to head a float, eveyone is better than eveyone else. It such a pain to get along some times. I have been in more arguement here in the past year than I had with my siblings growing up. Luckily I've finally found a group of focus owners I can relate too I been hanging around that section a lot lately. I just don't know why we all just don't get along.

A sentiment? Where? Please quit while you're behind.

And the h1...
A. it's slower than a turd
B. it's heavy
C. it has the turning radius of a semi
D. top speed is 65-70mph pushing it for short periods
and if you think you would have just bashed cars with it, you may get a couple hits... the h1 was unibody designed so the front end would disintegrate or components would have sheared.
you believe you would have done what with that h1? any one of those cars would have left you wallowing around looking stupid.

As for the Hummer H1 - I definitely don't know everything about it, but I do know that it's big, heavy, and stable. I think a 7000 pound SUV with high ground clearance will certainly be the better-off vehicle when colliding with a low-slung sports car weighing half as much. And before you call me a hypocrite for implying that I'd ram them if I had an H1 - it was a joke. I wouldn't, unless I was having a REALLY bad day. Bodywork's not cheap...

I don't comment with the intent of offending people, but it looks like I did just that to you - so I apologize. Hopefully this post clarifies my position. I like muscle cars (especially Terminator Cobras) - all kinds of cars, actually - but not those owners who do dangerous and irresponsible things with them. Just the same as I don't like irresponsible owners of Japanese cars or European cars or any other type of vehicle.

I can't think of anything civilized or constructive to say to you other than what I already did in my previous post, so I'll say nothing. I have a feeling you skimmed over it in a blind rage once you read the first sentence.

You gotta watch out these days; there's a host of those Nissans sporting muscular crates! Turbo LS engines are extremely economical builds compared to OEM 'fo-bangers finessed to the max; there's two or three in this area alone... total sleepers.

I guess I'll boil it down to some jot notes just for you, because you don't seem to get it:

- I'm fine with muscle cars and most of their owners
- I'm not fine with owners of ANY vehicle that drive them irresponsibly as depicted in the video
- The drivers in the video make all muscle car owners look bad, despite being in the minority
- My original comment on the H1 was a joke
- I didn't intend to offend you with my original post, but I did, and I apologized for it in my second post - to no effect, clearly
- Nobody in this thread appears to have a problem with me except you - as I see it, TheGlassMaker and LouBomb were expanding on a concept I brought up in my second post

I guess you can still blow up on me if you want, since being nice is "only going to last so long". Better get your fix before this thread gets locked. I suggest relaxing though, it's good for the heart...

And besides, the bunny has a pancake on its head, therefore any argument to be made anywhere is irrelephant.

Yes. I-880 through Oakland is quite crowded, and of major importance to Bay Area traffic for commuters and business. It's not just backwater Oakland residents. It'd be like blocking the 405 in LA, or the I-75/85 "downtown connector" in Atlanta, or the I-495 Long Island Expressway in New York.
