SLOW CLAP. I agree wholeheartedly. In the 90s it was hard to sell the GT1 homologation cars, nowadays billionaires are beating down doors to buy fake race car versions of super cars (FXXK, P1 GTR etc) that are just track day trinkets with no links to actual racing. That’s cool that they can afford such things, but if…
The one they (obliviously or trollishly) called GINA ?
GT1 should be where its at.
The expectations of the Miata are set in stone. The 86 was not the Supra reincarnation they expected. The car world set some weird expectation for it, that it clearly was never meant to achieve.

Basically, what this says is that the “Boomer Nostalgia” era of car designs is slowly dying out. I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing. Along with the PT Cruiser, Chevrolet HHR, Ford Thunderbird, and a few other retro-styled cars in recent years, it’s time for makers to move on anyhow.
I hate the YCC. I feel like people should be insulted that it ever existed. It’s literally a car that was designed around “oh, is working a car difficult? Let me help you sweet lamb”. Its patronizing to car people and the general population alike. There is a very good reason these ideas never caught on.
A moment of silence, please.
Oh, they do build it like that...

there’s that whole canal thing to deal with (you’ll need to ship your car across it)
My undoubtedly worthless two-cents: bring back 6-wheelers.
I have no problem with Musk smoking a joint on his own time, and his choice to smoke pot or not smoke pot is irrelevant to his role as CEO.
