I’d love to drive one of these.
I mean, that really really nice one sold for $10,000 on Bring A Trailer. That’s not... a ton of money for a car you really want.
Interesting idea. I think the bigger problem was that the “personal coupe” or “not-really-sports-car-coupe” kind of fell out of fashion. Remember the Acura CL, Altima Coupe, Camry Coupe... all long gone.
...To me, that is what it was like to drive. Reliving a memory. A memory of speed and excitement that was that was put into context when I drove the new Si and realized it was faster and more fun.
The defining sensation of what this car was like to drive was nostalgia.
I did drive the new Si for comparison. The Type R’s in the pictures because it pulled up into my photo shoot and I thought it’d be cool to see them together.
I was thinking about doing another post going into the details there, but yes, speed is only one factor in determining which direction and to what degree the rear wheels turn.
Mt. Mooney is the only one I have scouted so far.
Between the phone in my hand, cocaine lines on the center console and the burrito in my lap I rarely bother looking at the road.
It does have one, yes!
I am far less bothered by people beating up their new truck than I am watching them daily drive and do mall runs with a truck outfitted for more adventurous tasks.
Nah I’m sure my Acura will still be running strong at 600,000 miles haha.
It IS a shame, but I really don’t think the gauge cluster is a trivial detail. You’ve got to spend every second of driving it looking at the thing, after all!
That gauge cluster would have been much better.
I... I don’t see it.
I think the people in the picture are not the truck owners? Just looking at it?
