A couple of my friends have "fast" suv's, and I like to make fun of there pointless vehicles. They like to talk isht and say their "fast" suv's are faster than my subie. So I like to point out that my car is wicked fast, while getting good gas-mileage(especially with gas over 3.20 in my area), and that it probably does better in the snow and rain. Then if they do challenge me to a race, its kind of fun to take them on a road with a straight followd by some curves, and let them see your tailights for a few seconds before they get humiliated. So yes, I like to poke fun at the nay-sayers. Fast suv's, what a joke.... Might as well make a ferrari with third row seating or a truck bed.
