    Oh well, you win some and lose some. He who has the most mods will usually win.

    i am not trying to defend srt4s or anything like that. i would never buy one. but some of you guys keep on saying that it is only a neon. ok, so if its only a neon. i dont know whats worse. having a srt4(which is only a neon). or getting beat my an srt4(which is only a neon) so i guess if it is only a neon to some of you guys, i guess its safe to say you got beat by a neon.

    well I can't speak for everyone else, but what *I* was saying is that getting beat isn't everything.

    If someone offered me a choice between a new non-turbo non-AWD Porsche 911 or a new WRX with enough mods to beat the Porsche, I'd still take the Porsche and live with getting beat on the drive home. Winning isn't everything, and getting passed in a "race" on the freeway from a roll at 60 MPH isn't what *I* call winning anyway...a pissing contest, certainly, but not winning.

    ...and as I get passed on my drive home in my 911, I'd think to myself: "so what? its still just a Subaru."

    i agree w/ you. but i dont know if a porsche 911 and wrx is a good example. i mean, the pirce range on those two is not even close. im pretty sure most people will take the porsche.

    Kind of like ours is to yours ahahaha!. But seriously, I'd even take an RSX over a neon. There is more to a car than JUST power. I mean whatever happend to getting from point a to b safely? Neons are and always will be throw-away cars. It's like who cares if an 87 GLH blows your a%% away by three seconds in a 1/4 mile, I still would never want one. An srt4 is just a newer GLH. A slapped together power sled, made by your fine high quality unionized american labor force full of drug selling crackheads who only get a slap on the wrist for selling drugs during company time . While fine cars such as our get made by highly skilled engineers, and highly disciplined non-unionized assembly workers, who will get fired at once for smoking a cigarette on company time, let known some crack!
    My car looks just like this without the skirts and roof wing! Yeah baby!

    don't fight kids...they're both fairly cheap low end cars! Although the neon IS build on a slightly cheaper base car.

    How much longer has Dodge been around and making vehicles still on the road before Subaru was in exsistence?

    1914
    First Dodge Brothers car
    First stop sign - Detroit
    First US-produced 12-cylinder car - Packard

    The Subaru Timeline
    1917 – Setting up of the ‘Aircraft Research Laboratory in Japan
    1931 – Restructured as the Nakajima Aircraft Company that designed the Zero fighters
    1946 – Reorganised as the Fuji Sangyo Company. First Rabbit scooter produced from spare aircraft parts
    1950 – Fuji Sangyo divided into 12 smaller corporations
    1955 – Four of these corporations and a new one merge as Fuji Heavy Industries. The new corporation
    In 1954, FHI unveiled its first automotive prototype, the P-1. Engineered and designed to comfortably seat four adults while providing a stable and comfortable ride, the FHI P-1 would, in 1955, be renamed the Subaru 1500 - the first car to ever wear the Subaru name. The lessons learned during the development of the 1500 led to the 1958 debut of the Subaru 360, which became a milestone in the history of Japan's automotive industry and established Subaru as a builder of small, affordable, yet technologically advanced cars.

    thing is, most cars made TODAY are made to be disposable...isn't there even a law in Japan that you can't drive a car that's older than 5 or 7 years?

    How much more advanced in every was is a Subaru than a Dodge? Not a Mercedes rehashed into a Dodge but a Chrysler designed/engineered Dodge

    There's no comparison
