    Unique ARs

    Just watched these and they are certainly unique.

    Japanese vehicles; cool and not so cool.

    I considered that too, but given that the MRs is Toyota I didn't think it was as likely.

    Fiero copy?

    The car that was supposed to ape is one of the examples of classic American muscle that I love.
  5. That was very poignant for me today, thank you. Good words to live by.

    No thanks. It isn't something that I find bad, but it doesn't appeal to me. Then again I also am pretty particular about American muscle.

    I take it back, here are two others I would consider: And even the Supra is just because it is impressive how easy they are to make huge power with.

    Between those and Nissan Z cars, you have most of my interest in Japanese automobiles. (The remainder is in the Mazda Miata) ETA: I can appreciate a few others but have no interest in owning one.

    Just read earlier today that Mazda confirmed they would be using a Rotary engine in the upcoming electric car as a range extender. Not sure what I think about that. If you are just charging a battery it seems like you could use a standard four stroke engine and have no issues since it can be tailored to operate at just one speed.

    Now that is appealing.
  11. 🍿 This could get interesting.

    I was only familiar with the An-32 that looks similar but with turboprop engines.

    Kei Car is what you are looking for; it is a class like is available in much of Europe that doesn't require a normal license. ETA: I thought it didn't require a normal license, now I am having to search for someplace that documents that fact. I know they have favorable tax, insurance, and other benefits.
  14. Fantastic, thank you. I did notice you didn't show the picture with the Concorde's canards.
