Jesus.. I am brutal.   :P

For a long while now, this is what I've been wanting for my next car (in order of preference):

- Convertible
- Fun to drive
- Manual
- V8

I've been stuck on this order for a while now, which is odd since I seem to normally change my mind about this stuff about every other day.... 
I'm now wavering on the convertible part.

This is where my heart is today...

After sitting in one of these I wanted to trade in my GTi for it. Sadly I need function first so I can't do it but would I love to have one of those.

So ya....DO IT!

Saw a black right handed drive one yesterday on Hwy 6 on the stretch from Arthur to Fergus.. He was having a harder time than I was passing all the trucks towing trailers who where "camping" on the weekend...  Harder to see oncoming traffic....

Yes.....yes you are....Mid engined, reliable, comfortable, great looking, handles sublimely, the god like hand of Ayrton Senna blessed the design of this car....dont know what there is to not like about it.
Keep the change you filthy animal.

Looks-wise, it was kind of "meh", especially when they ditched the pop up headlights and went with the bugeyes. Everything else about it was fantastic though.
For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. –

Yeah, the looks never did much for me, and the fact that it's reliable also doesn't help me much....A car like that is something that I would only use occasionally and when I do, I want it to feel special, look special and act special (even if that means being a little tempermental). I've driven a couple NSXs and and while they do drive fantastic on the road, when I am sitting in it looking at the Accord gauge cluster, it just doesn't feel special to me....I'd take a Ferrari 355 at a similar price over the NSX anyday.

I get it, when you get to these kinds of cars, looks are oh so very important as a car like this you buy with your heart....or the southern head ;D . I dont think you can get an F355 for anywhere close to NSX pricing can you??
