    lol, don't get me wrong, the vanquish would be proudly owned by me! Those things are rare so, just from a collectible standpoint, I'd have no problem owning one.

    Interlagos, such a beautiful color...if it wasn't for the alpine white, I would've gone intelagos or sepang. The metal flake really brings out the shape of the car.

    I absolutely despised the karma in photos, but in person the thing is just stunning. No other car in it's class has the presence that the karma does. I still can't stand the diamond shaped graphics but it looks awesome in motion.

    you might actually get a decent price on the hatchback if you sell to some honda tuning type dork - if the bodywork is without too many dents you could probably get $1500-2000 for it. If you stress that it gets like 45mpg, you might be able to get even more if you put it on ebay with '45mpg' in the subject field. Seems like a decent tradeoff if you just need AC and working windows for the summer. Both of those cars are from the era of Hondas that go forever, especially the Accord.

    I saw the Scion FR-S for the first time, driving down the expressway. it was in sort of a copper color, and man it looked amazing. this thing is going to be a tuner's wet dream. styling is very aggressive, distinctive, and the reviewers all say the performance is there. pretty much fully optioned for $25k (iirc the only significant option is an upgraded sound system). the only criticism i have after the drive by is that the exhaust note is too quiet, but I'm sure the aftermarket will take care of that.

    it was being driven by a woman with kids in the front seat and back. when I spotted it and realized what it was I started maneuvering in traffic to get a closer look. I was in the GT3 and it seems like the kids asked their mom to get closer to me because we both started picking through traffic and ended up together...the kids gave me a peace sign and I gave them a thumbs up. kind of funny in a car-geekish kind of way

    Yeah, thanks for the reply Keith. It'll be hard to see the car go but I'm going to take the trade. The thought of another year needlessly sweating my bag off in that civic just isn't pleasing. Just needed someone to tell me I wasn't downgrading... But with these cars I don't think it matters.

    Either will have a decent resale, had both and the accord was a definite step up, sold it at 150k mile bc I was bored of it but got decent return and it had a lot of life left in it. My dad kept out old civics and he could t go to the shop without getting multiple offers from the tuner kids.

    599 GTO is my favorite design currently produced car, unfortunately doesn't come with a proper transmission.

    Here's my buddy's m shoe

    Not a fan of the wing but it is tracked frequently if any consolation.

    599 GTO is impressive but unless you're a pro driver and live near a track, I don't see the point. It's an unforgiving extreme track machine which comes at quite a price. It doesn't even look nice. But as a show off machine it's indeed quite good.

    Most of us wouldn't even exploit a BMW E46 M3 to its full potential on a track :embar:
