The lifted, pointy nose, the arc of the hood, the cut of the side windows and bottom of the door, all from the 2000GT.

Will be a Subaru over here.

Still no reason for me to walk into a Toyota dealership. I understand the logic of their branding, but the fact that every sporty fun car in the Toyota empire are found in their subsidiary's dealerships does disappoint me a little. I liked oogling the GT-R and WRX on our last trip a car buying (Owen was oddly enamored with the Leaf however), even though we will not be buying anything so fun.

We had a Ford GT in our showroom. It attracted a lot of attention. Having something like that gives your salesmen opportunities. pirat

Yeah, the 86 GT is actually three cars:
Scion FR-S
Toyota 86 GT
Subaru BRZ

The price of this car is almost too good to be true (reading in the ~$25,000 range) for what it is; but then I am reading that all the dealers I can find are going to be holding a raffle for these cars because Subaru/Toyota/Scion are producing them in extremely limited quantities. Maybe that's just for the 2012 model year? Because otherwise (and even still): Booooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Evil or Very Mad

This car is near perfect in my opinion: Not too heavy, not too much HP, just enough lightness and power to be a hell of a lot of fun to drive in the real world. A true people's sportscar in the mold of the old British sportscars. I don't think a car has been more interesting to me since I first saw the MX-5.

Huh, guess I didn't RTFA when they announced this photo gallery business. I thought it would be a built in sharing tool for us, rather than having to upload the pics to a third party site, but I was wrong.

What really happens is the pics you set to 'share' end up in this random online gallery, with no attribution might I add Neutral .

I didn't get that one. I did get five of the chick in Bern and five where one of the visible cars was seriously off kilter.

Ya, apparently car catapults are big in Hong Kong, based on how many pics I saw of cars at altitude.

Well, I was wrong. Today it's all VWs in the OCD.

Some nice ones though, I am sure I am going to pick up some that I don't have. Cool

Is Canada out again? I'm hearing a lot of chatter that it is.

The action will then jump from the virtual cars of the PS3 game to actual Nissan sports cars when the winners of the National competition are invited to take part in the intense international Race Camp competition in August

I wonder if that means the NA finalists will attend the same finals as the European finalists. I hope they include Canada this time, it sucks that you guys missed out last time.
