Car - Poll.

What are you into and why?

I myself am into American Muscle. I do like some imported cars but it's never been my cup of tea. I'd say there are probably not that many people who have actually driven a high horsepower American Muscle car. I think once you do you get hooked for life.

I grew up around built motor cars from highpowered Ford small blocks to big blocked Chevelle's that would chatter your teeth at idle. It's something you just can't get out of any import car, IMO.

One of my favorite Mustangs that are often over looked:

04 Yamaha YZ450F - Off-Road it, mang
06 Kawasaki BruteForce 750i
09 Yamaha Raptor 700r

I have a space in my heart for all classics. You have to appreciate the styling of old jags, the power of the muscle cars, the handling of a porche. I love cars in general. I generally like the more exotic (don't know if that's the correct word) muscle cars. Like a Buick GSX, the Pantera, the 442. These cars you don't see too often but its a pleasure when you do and they are fully resotred

The cars you like aren't necessarily the cars you've owned. I love European cars but have never owned one. And, erm, isn't Britain considered Euro?

1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am- fun/toy car
2000 Honda Prelude- daily driver
2001 Infiniti QX4- wife's

I think I've registered maybe 19 cars in my life, 11 of them were FBodies at last count. Owned many more (parted out, turned/burned, etc).

I was referring to the body style.

The King Cobra had a very tame stock 302. But as you all know the 302 had huge potential to be built up and a car that weighs under 3000lbs will = fast.

We had a Mustang II with a 351 Cleveland stuffed into it. It was far from a POS. If your friend still owned that King Cobra today it would be worth some cash since under 5000 of them were ever made.

Arch, Jap Muscle doesn't exist. American Muscle refers to cars that were made with huge motors during the 50s up until the early 70s.

...and Japanese Muscle refers to the few cars that pushed out over 315HP off the showroom floor.

Top 3 Cars I Like:

1) Acura NSX
2) Audi RS6
3) Subaru Impreza 22B


With that said, I drive a Pontiac GTO, before that a Honda S2000, before that an Eagle Talon TSi.

I voted for Euro on accident... I meant to vote for Jap imports....but almost voted for American Muscle.

I'm an overall car enthusiast.

I've never really heard of them referred to as Japanese "muscle" per se. Most, if not all, high powered Japanese cars are GTs- grand touring cars with very high HP potential. GTO/3000GT, Supra, Fairlady/300ZX, R32-R34 Skyline, Soarer/SC, etc. I guess in their domestic market, they would be a type of muscle car.

The FD RX7 was a true sports car though- as opposed to a touring car.

All imo anyway.

I like all the choices, have owned US and Japanese only.

My first car was a Jeepster Commando, and I'd love to have one again.

Had a '71 Javelin SST and a '69 AMX. The AMX was very unique and fun. Sold it for more that I bought it for. Allowed me to buy a TZ250.

I'd like a SVT Ford Focus. I'll probably wait for a new generation diesel car though. I like diesels and their ability to run unique fuels.

That's exactly the narrow spectrum I was referring to. And yes, there is no 'universal' term of what it's exactly labeled. Generically calling them 'imports' puts the in the same category as an 88hp civic.

Yeah, my Javelin was a '71. It was odd, but it was the year that they used the high compression 401 that they used in the Interceptor cars. Less HP in '72. Some unique features in '71, but it was still shaped like a Coke bottle like a Corvette.

If it has functioning air conditioning and all the paint on the car, it is better than the POS I drive. One of my fave cars was this.

1984 VW GTI


I totaled it dec 22, 1990. I still miss that car.
