    Kids my age suffered from too much of a good thing, with Mustangs, Stingrays, XKEs, Ford GT40s, Chapparals, Deuce Coupes. But none were as cool as this.

    Most likely SpeeRacer's influence, the Dino was my first car poster.

    I liked a lot of the Bond cars. The Lotus Esprit was a memorable one for me.

    No, what you need is a Hennessey Venom GT 265+ MPH top speed. 1,200 HP.

    I'll have the Hennessey as my Sunday car, the Lotus for Saturday and this BAC Mono as my everyday runabout.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    Yeah, but you gotta have the 'stache to go with it:



    Odd story: one night long ago I was watching Magnum P.I. at home when my dad walks in. He looks at the TV and says "Oh, hello, Tom." My dad taught at USC in 1968, and Tom Selleck was one of his students.

    you made the right choice. the Focus is a much better looking car.
    also, unless its a lambo or some other exotic sports car, 4 doors > 2 doors

    The Focus is a great drivers car although I think its more handsome than beautiful. Crazy good value at the moment which I couldn't turn down. The Mito was fun to drive but has a VERY firm ride. Very economical too for a sports car but expensive to insure.
