Four-door Sedan: Which would you choose? - Page 7

post #91 of 117
I know people who live in SoCal who drive 2002s every day, so there are places where you can do that. They also take them to autocrosses and the track. The seatbelts are kind of scary for those last two activities, though.

It's probably drier in Southern California. I know in Florida, British roadsters aren't very popular.

I hate the "bling" wheels on this one though. I would have gone slightly more tasteful, though the OEM's aren't really iconic either. They would have to change the name to "homicide doors" when I got in. I also like the 1961 convertible "JFK" model. Forward, then back. Forward, then back.

Excellent choice, Slim. I've always loved that car.

Homicide doors, eh? Remember, old ladies and children are 100 points!

Just had to revive this thread when I re-watched this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzowK_BZWXc Clarksons's finest hour. (I think ImageWIS posted it on AA originally)

In a more affordable price range, the Chrysler 300 SRT8 is a pretty sweet ride:

It's also easy to mistake the 300 for a Bentley.

No.

The 300 has the same dull steering, sterile looks and silly engines that other similar cars have.

The perfect car can never be perfect in every sense because of today's demands. You want something that's comfortable on the road, yet communicates enough to let you know what's going on, yet handles well when you need roadhandling prowess (be it a fun back road or an emergency situation).

In my opinion, Volkswagen/Audi, depending on your price range, are the best. They handle well in snow and rain, they either are FWD or Quattro for grip, they have great sounding engines, a great feel when you are driving them, and good looks. Sure, a BMW might snap around an Audi on the backgroads a bit, but the BMW just feels like it's trying too hard. (Mind you, I've only driven various 3 series)

NR, may I ask if you have a parking spot in Tokyo? My understanding is that you have to prove that you have a parking spot before they can sell you the car. If you actually have a parking spot in Tokyo. . . *I'm not worthy* *I'm not worthy* *I'm not worthy*

BBC asked Youtube to remove all Top Gear videos a few days back when they launched their own service for watching Top Gear for free on their site. It sucks ass for anyone without a UK ip, though, so it's pissed of a lot of people. Myself included. All videos of Sabine Schmidt are gone. The world is a darker place.

The Maserati is WILD. But, I do have a weakness for Cadillac shark fins.
