I don't care what my car is called, was called or will be called. It's about how it drives, performs and fits my needs/wants.

It could be called the Chevy Sh!t and I couldn't have cared any less.

I agree, if it meets the performance/ handling criteria that you like to see then it doesn't really freaking matter what they call it. It was just a foot note earlier.

Personally I liked the new Fiesta better than the old one, but wasn't looking for a car quite that small this time around.

The MK3 Focus drove better than the latest Cruze as well as the Dart in my opinion, which is why I have one.

I also prefer the way it looks, but again this can be quite subjective.

Check out a lot of the naked bikes, SV650s like doug's etc. They have a more upright riding position. Feels A LOT like a dirt bike.

And they run 14s with light mods... Not bad for a under $20k car that gets about 40mpg.

Yup, I'd be looking at the FZ8 for a next bike I think.

I wanted a CBR because it was basically like the civic of bikes, cheap, easy, billions of upgrade options etc.




edit:
the fender eliminator helps this bike a ton:
