ae86 on TopGear tonite 2/5/13

Postby morgan » Tue Feb 05, 2013 6:38 am

yup, they are looking for "americas toughest car", which means they will be destroying a red kouki coupe, but aside from the destruction, this should be good.

The Volvo and Caprice are no surprise....but I don't really equate AE86's with tough lol. Still I broke a bridge with mine and only bent a control arm and tensioner rod....

Look at it this way: They blow one up, the rest of our cars become rarer and more valuable. <VBG>

I just can't help thinking, "America's" toughest car should be one that was made here, not just bought here. Not to mention, calling a riceburner TOUGH??

ROFLMAO.

This is what happens when you don't force the kids to go to the Demolition Derby.

"It's hard to kill a Toyota sometimes.."
What do they say in the dinosaur movies? It's too damned dumb to die.

Which can be a good thing. No traction system to fail, no electronics in the transmission, no 8-way power seats to jam, no automatic dimming rearview mirror to fail....too damn dumb to die.<G>
