No place to vote for my car (preference).

I hate Rice! I prefer a car that has exceptional handling. I drive a 2003 MazdaSpeed. It's turbocharged, and has increased boost. (close to 195hp). Racing Beat suspension & exhaust, front and rear anti sway bars, Racing Hart 17" wheels, oversized rotors, Tokico dampers. Not to mention; 450watt Kenwood sound with CD/MP3 player w/8" subwoofer. It rocks! Oh; Sparco pedals, and short shifter.

I prefer sleeper rice rocket (=no stickers, no bad paint, no Aztech taillights, no carbon fiber wings, well you get the idea). Just drove around Acura TL A-spec past weekend (my brother in-law's new car). Although not as light or nibble as S2000 or NSX, it was fairly descent with usable back seat/truck.

Thanks! But; The MazdaSpeed is this way from the showroom. And; quite limited in production. Mine is #38 of 1,150 in the world with Black Mica paint.

Rice is a japanese car (usually a Honda) with a fart can exhaust, and ******** all over it. The MazdaSpeed is a true performance car. Make no mistake.

I have nothing against Vipers, etc.... I have driven one! Their just too expensive, and really; that kind of performance on the street is a bit nuts.

i guess there is kind of a stigma assigned to the word "rice" as it pertains to cars. i was just using muscle to mean cars with big displacement and an emphasis on big noise and big speed while using rice to mean typically forced induction cars with more of an emphasis on body style and handling.

but those might just be my own definitions.

I would like to have in my garage, a 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350. This is my dream car in regards to American Muscle.
