say what?? why, that would be....crazy. i mean, there are tons of blogs and websites out there that feature the best in import whacko mania. i feel that i'm doing a service to those of us that still think the rumble of an outdated, overweight machines is music to the ears.
that's not to say i don't like a lot of cars. on the contrary, i like most cars. as a matter of fact, if my old habits didn't get in the way, there are a few four cylinder turbo cars that would be on my list of fun things to own.
volvo turbo wagons. especially a T5 R. a good enthusiast following, stout construction, and i could even fit the whole family. this doesn't fit perfectly into the mold, because volvo has inline 5 cylinders with turbo's, but whose counting?
of course, what enthusiast would be worth his salt without the subaru? specifically, the sti? talk about a tuners dream. styling is subjective, but i still like it, and it can take what you dish out.
i'm a closet vw fan. the gti has been a favorite of mine since the 80's when it was a rabbit with cool stuff. probably the only cars on earth that have as much of a fan following as mustangs are the civic and this car....and this one comes with a turbo. tons of aftermarket. original build quality makes me a bit wary, but as a project fun car, it's a good one.
and no turbo 4 list would be complete without the neon. normally, i wretch at the thought of a neon. but the chrysler folks thought enough about the srt4 to say that it was an srt4, not a neon. good enough for me. this car goes from rucous 4 cylinder ripper to absolute tuner car madness with just a short list of modifications.
i'm no one trick v8 pony.
