From the days when I used to race in Stockton, San Jose, and watch them in the San Fernando Valley (not my videos, bc it was illegal):

MR-2 Turbo

FD RX-7 Twin Turbos with Veilside kits (especially the one Han had in Tokyo Drift)

And the one whip I've never seen in California, but saw in Connecticut hanging out with a ToyotaNation homie back in 2006:

R33 Skyline GTR:

Damn MotoRex for screwing up importing them. Dunno if they got excepted from the 25 year import rule like R34s did, but if not, when I get a garage with a house on the same lot, this may end up in it.

Its dope that has the Cummins logo on the side of the truck too. For those who are wondering, these trucks don't have an ISL lol, they have a much smaller Cummins engines suitable for pickup trucks.

I also like the serieis "Top Gear" where one person drives car while two people take public transportation across Japan to see who they won.

I also like the cars that Extreme Makeover Home Edition gives as gift to family after 7-day makeover.

You'll love the Top Gear when the raced across London in a boat, the Tube, a bike, and Mercedes SUV.

They’re legal here now under the 25 year rule, but all the SR20DET equipped models are largely cannibalized or overpriced because folks imported them to put in S14 240sx models.

I value the car I drive and the bank still owns for another 3 years which is a 2019 Subaru WRX. It's a Japanese muscle car 4cyl turbo, manual transmission(6 speed). I love it because its an all around car that has AWD, and its a sedan thats spacious. For a turbo vehicle it gets 25 mpg for someone that travels roughly 30miles round trip to/from work. Doesn't cost much to fuel about $35 on premium to fill the tank, I fill up every 12 to 15 days. It meets my needs because it's unique with the hood scoop, manual option, sedan body, turbo charged, AWD for under $30k. I could care less if people have negative opinions because everyone is entitled to their opinion. It was this car or a 2019 Totoya Camry XSE which costs close to $35k and had no manual option. I love when people film my car or check it out because it is an attention grabber and in public I have no expectation of privacy so those curious people know who I am when I drive by even though I don't know who they are lol

Why not the STi?

This is the one me and my old 2nr buddies always wanted - 98 STi 22B. Never sold in the US - widebody, 2.2L Turbo, 276 hp on a  government dyno (some hit 300 hp on other dynos).

Aside from the cost which is $7k-$15k more for the STI, it is an older platform engine wise and not as efficient as the FA-20 motor the 2015+ WRX has. I didn't want to deal with ring-land, head gasket issues from a platform that hasn't changed in 20+yrs and I said before the efficiency. The FA motor you can get power out of it with a simple tune or going to E85. STI you're more restricted.

When I saw this video I understood that it would be great to have a Chevrolet Tahoe in a garage of my property in Costa Blanca here and drive around Spain in it with comfort, would be great.

Gawd, those new GM's are hideous. And personally, I can only tolerate Doug D in small doses.
