coming from the guy who has a miata, that thing looks like a girls car.

its a bit better with those wheels though.

Buying a volks for its reliability is just an invalid argument really..

Funny thing is.... They will both run circles around 99% of the Merkur's out there.... And a damned sight easier to find parts

It's not about how fast you can go, my 2007 Toyota Camry goes 0-60 in 5.8 seconds, but driving it isn't the same feeling as driving a car almost no-one else has.
