The pre-facelift Elantra Sport is a REALLY sharp looking car, darn near almost perfect. Hyundai ruined it with the facelift, and now they’ve gone and seemingly ruined the Elantra again with whatever the heck that is pictured up top....the front end reminds me of The Grinch smiling.

Let’s also give it up to said hero, carefully scrawling 190 on the speedo above the 120 MPH mark.  It was ludicrously ambitious then, and it remains so now.  About the only way you’re going to hit 120 in a Scout II is if you shove it out the back of a flying C-130.

Now, now, we can’t hold everyone complicit in this scam accountable, can we? Those pillar of the community bankers who got a nice commission on those loans would never knowingly grant a government backed loan to some dude claiming wildly inflated revenues, would they?
