imo we are giving american musle to much breathing room, we need to make them nervous again, if a new supra came out that was not butcherd to hell i would more than likely put a down payment onto it but dont see that happening any time soon
Totally agree with you. Even before the 80's the Japanese were putting soul into their cars (prime example is the skylines), and now they've seem to have lost that edge.....well until the Fr's/BRZ/GT86 came out. If they do remake the supra (which I'm sure will happen) I REALLY hope they don't kill it like Nissan did to the skyline and well the z models; which lost it after the 300zx.
I honestly don't hate american cars, yes they do suck but they occasionally make a good one. I just hate the arrogant drivers who don't know what a good car is (A.K.A pro Americana ppl), those people are the only people that ever piss me off. Screw the v8 this v8 that bull shit as me and my friends say "god invented turbos to give v8's a chance". people are so twisted with the "if it isn't putting out over 350hp the car sucks" bs. The fr's is a damn fine example of that, it wont win in a straight line but on track it's going to dominate.

Please do not use the term "Jap" as it is racist and rude.

thats so true, not all drivers are so arrogant about there american cars but a vast mojarity that i have met are d bags about it. i dont know why every one wants a v-8 in everything, look at the lexus lfa its a 4.4 liter v10 this is smooth as silk, revs on and on and is making more power and torque than the biggest vet motor( excluding the zL1 since thats charged). i like american cars iv riden and driven a bit of them but there not sooo special to say its the best around. you got to apprichiate a car for what it is and not where it was made, look at Akio Toyoda he is the ceo of toyota but he has admited many times that toyota isent his only favoret car( thats apprichiating cars for what they are) he would buy many of his competidors cars just becuase he likes them, why cant we all do that?

I know I do that! I'm a huge Mitsubishi and Nissan fan but I still love my toyota's and of course bmw's. But ya with the americana people their so one minded (not all but most), you give them respect and in return they give you non back. You can prove a lot of stuff they say/think is totally wrong/miss leading and they'll still be a d-bag about it and talk up their cars like there the best in the world. A couple days ago I drove a all original 65' Pontiac Parisienne convertible and loved it, it wasn't fast but it was a sweet car. Got talking with the owner (had it since new) etc and told time about my cars and plans.....he told me my cars were crap and I should get a muscle car.
No matter how many video's are put on youtube about this topic you cant educate the stupid/unwilling!

and we're way off topic! lol

Yes, I will agree with you guys about your take on american ideology. They simply think that they the shit, without any evidence at all to support such an idea. At best they are moderately good at what they do, but they still try to brainwash people into thinking they are the best.

example: I used to have a camaro, and it had a v-8. my 85 supra puts out more power than that chevy v- 8 did. my supra about 176hp the camaro about 157. Jeremy Clarkston said: "I don't know how those Americans figured out to get so little power out of such a big engine." or something close to it.

I mean. American Ideas are dieing on their own weight. I would stay away from America's backward thinking. If it wasn't for British television being imported to the united states, I don't know what I would do.
