This car is sick and I’m so glad you posted about this because I never knew about it until now. Based on my 2 minutes of googling, it’s very dubious that this was an actual GT2. According to a Speedhunters article on the car, the owner at the time, Jon Kaneda, said this was “actually a 1996 European version… Read more
Kristen, your photos for this piece are great.
^This is a high quality comment.
This car is easily one of the best looking cars of all time. I’ll die on this hill.
Absolutely. If I had to choose between my heated steering wheel and every one of those other options combined, I’d take my heated steering wheel without hesitation.
I live in Minnesota and let me tell you, I’ll take my heated steering wheel above all those other options combined.
Actually it’s a heated steering wheel. As someone who lives in Minnesota and uses heated seats every day when it’s cold, my heated steering wheel easily takes the number 1 spot.

I owned a 2001 CL Type-S since new from February of 2000, and just sold it this January. Great car except for the automatic transmission, steering, and seating position.

Saw one of these at the Twin Cities auto show back when this thing came out. Undeniably gorgeous and super cool in person, but I was surprised with how cheaply put together some of the parts looked. The areas around the headlights in particular looked like they were held in with plastic rivets or something. Definitely… Read more
I completely agree with this. Also, TG became more about the silly adventure challenges which were fun when sprinkled in, but when they’re every episode it gets old really fast. Plus, the three guys became cartoon caricatures of the personas they developed over their time in the show, to a point where I found it too… Read more
The governing bodies of these racing series need to stop dicking around with the tires. Remember the raw egg F1 tires? You’re not going to make the racing interesting by having all the drivers on tissue paper tires. It’s dangerous and ridiculous. Nobody should have to worry about a random tire failure in a racing… Read more
I was about to get mad about this comment until I read further.
All the traffic circles in my town are like this, with the stop point for pedestrians between the two lanes at each entrance/exit. Honestly, I’ve had way better luck with being seen while crossing them as a pedestrian than any normal 4 way stop. I feel a LOT safer crossing these.
