    so everyone please tell me about some of your v8 kills!!
    As an answer, I refer to the ignorance is on both sides of the equation response above.

    aaaaggreed. Ignorance and stupidity know no bounds. The old axiom is still true... there is ALWAYS someone faster...

    It is easier to understand either side of *this* equation when you have been in both sets of shoes. Both car types drive differently. Both have their own unique brand of fun, and an owner can easily believe that his brand of fun is the superior brand.

    A smart car person will appreciate each car for its value... and laugh at the foibles that occur when someone takes it too far.

    What DOES that big assed wing on the back of that Honda do anyway???

    hahaha, speaking of I have a pretty funny story about that:

    I had a guy in a 97/98 5MT GT Mustang with what sounded like basic bolt on's (probably intake, x-pipe, catback) that I caught at a light. I didn't instigate anything, nor had I thought that he wanted to play, but when the light turned green he took off hard spinning through most of first and chirping second hard. I stayed about three cars back because I was not expecting an race and never really went over 1/2 throttle.
    So we hit the next light together and he signals for me to roll my window down. As I do so he says to me "that car is not bad, you kept up with me somewhat.... You know, you should just throw a turbo in there and that thing would haul". I responded with "a turbo?" with a blank look on my face and he said "yeah!". So I laugh and ask if he wants to go again and he agreed. As I was reving up for a semi-aggressive 3.5k launch my BOV makes some noise and he looks over at me the same blank face I gave him originally.

    Then I proceeded to put roughly 6 cars on him by 70mph... I thought it was pretty funny.

    lol, thanks. Yeah, I figured that by saying LS1 that also implied all of the LS-series motors, but I should have been more specific.
    I was being sarcastic hahah my chevette is a 60hp off-road rally wonder, it runs 22 second quarters, and spends most of its time sideways.

    my boss is a "V8" guy-- he apparently built an 11 second street chevelle (back in the 80s). Now that he is older and has more money, he just bought a 01 BMW 740il. So no only was he v8 snob, but now he was a BMW snob to boot--

    when I got my wrx he kind of scoffed at it, calling it 'rice' etc....until I took him by 2 car lengths from a stop--without even launching.

    Needless to say, now he wants a wrx as a winter car.
