    I really love the way this car looks, and have been following it's release. Hopefully this will fill the void that the Firebird and Camaro left when they were discontinued. The Mustang is to fat and slow of a car, and hopefully this will give Ford some run for it's money. Even though I'd never buy one... I can't stand unrefined pushrod V8's. Give me overhead cams anyday.

    Any comments on BMW's Mini? I really love the little car, especially how customizable it is. My only problem is how small it is. I would hate to see one meet an Expedition at high speeds.

    Yeah it's one of those pick-your-colour type things that car companies have on their web sites:

    I'll be interested if/when Pontiac does come out with the GTO again. My parents had a 67 model, and it kicked mayor ass. My mom used to race corvettes (fully tweaked ones too) and beat them in the straights. She couldn't get them in turns, but where the balls met the walls, she could beat them every time. It probably didn't hurt that she had (and still has) a heavy foot, and can shift like a race car driver.

    I might get one (eventually) just to show it off to her. Or maybe get her one.... Now THAT would piss off my sister, which is another reason to do it. :D

    uh oh! what have I started

    Alpha-

    While you're at it, I could use a new car myself. I'll even give you my old one for you to have!

    Actually maybe a motorcycle would be a better bet...how about a Honda Alpha? Maybe a nice 750 Magna? he he he he he...

    It's my first ever car and it's a brilliant one, I have the cooper, but if you want a little more power (and can pay the insurace) the cooper s is now out.

    Family members are the only ones that I would EVER consider doing something like that for. You don't even come close to qualifying for the benefit. :p :D
