    To each his own. I previously owned a comptech supercharged v6 accord, and what it lacked from a launch(partially because of the slushbox) it more than made up in smooth power delivery, tons of passing power, and was an all around great car. It was quiet, comfortable, great interior for long hauls, but when it needed to it could delve out an ass whoooping.

    Fanboyism on either side is pretty lame. Why buy a slow ass AWD? Why a wrx and not an STi? Why did you upgrade to a VF34, why not a real turbo? You want a track car? buy used miata slap a flying turbo kit on it and call it a day. You want straight line? Pick up some RWD american muscle, for about 1/2 the money of a new STi, I can build an old stang that would be faster than the worlds fastest subaru. Respect a car for what it is. Just because many honda owners act like twinks, that doensn't mean someone who actually built their car deserves the hatred. Truth is we all buy our cars for our own reasons, looking down on someone because they chose to fix it up regardless of what it is, shows a lot.

    Whaaaaa??? That's Elisha Cuthbert dude. She was in 'The Girl Next Door'. She is 23 years old. What do you mean 13 or 14 year old thing? I'm 10 years older than she is and would STILL do naughty things to her.

    Everyone has their own tastes in cars. Bashing a guy because he decided to put a turbo kits on an Accord is just silly. If its a clean install and done right, I would give him kudos. While I love the WRX and STi, I can appreciate almost any car as long as its been tastefully done.

    And I would so tap Elisha Cuthbert, she's legal and she's hot.

    Sorry, quick hijack:
    White Out, is that a Grand National in your av next to the STi? NIIIIIIICE! I have a 1/24th scale model of one of those. Did a pretty good job on it if I say so myself. Those are totally bad ass cars.

    Yeah, that is my '87 GN. I am impressed that you know what it is, most people refer to it as a Monte Carlo.
