minivans rock. Seriously. You can fit all kinds of crap in them and get good gas mileage. You have to be married with kids to truely appreciate them I think.

I'm too old for "cool" and my definition of "cool" prob isn't the same as most guys. Cool is comfort, good gas mileage, and ease of use.

Rav 4' s blow. Like a Ford Escape or a Honda CUV. Waste of metal. Sucks in snow and looks like shit in summer. Want an SUV, get a real mans SUV like a 4 runner.

I've had a Saab, an MR-2, and a ford ranger.

Current Vehicle

A Bicycle.

I'd go with a Mini-van when I decide to get my license back.

Learned to drive in trucks, bad mileage, bad handling, and just big and fugly. Not the ranger of course, it was just fugly with bad handling.

SUV > Minivan..

I hope I don't grow old and become like you Cat... that's a sad definition of cool..

My definition of cool = Hazardous to health, Legal only in Amsterdam and too fast to know what happened.

Add in reliability and you have my 2005 Toyota RAV-4...


Its far easier to get kids and car seats in and out of a minivan than any other vehicle on the road. I do it enough to know how much it sucks. Being able to open a sliding door and comfortably lean in to put in a car seat or smack my kids was great.

I now drive a 95 4 door Honda Accord and I hate it. It has good gas mileage, looks ok, and handles good, but gettomg ,u 6'2 ass out of it and my kids car seats is a pain in the ass.

Keyser,

When you get older your definitions will change. Its all part of growing up. I'd rather put $50 in the bank each week than in my tank. Having money in the bank is the epitomy of "cool". I'm not very cool at the present time :(

That's definately junk that WILL dome something. I'm at least expecting it to bump me up to about 300-400BHP from the current 182BHP. .


You will be sorely disappointed if you think your going to even sniff the crack of the 300whp mark with those mods. Maybe, maybe, if you turn up the boost. A lot. And unfortunatly rotary motors dont get along with real well with detonation, a byproduct of high boost.

Edit: It is a nice car tho. Makes me miss my modified 1993 MR2 turbo.

If I get the engine ported, I'll easily pass 300BHP, this I know from people who've done it.
