    PT Cruiser: 1st, 2nd, 2nd = 1.67 300zx: 3rd, 1st, 3rd = 2.33 Viagra: 2nd, 3rd, 1st = 2 I'm pretty sure that means that the PT Cruiser won the competition and it's not even a sports car!

    Obviously the Boxster is the right choice, but where are you getting this magical $6500 clean Boxster 986? In Canada your looking at paying double for a rough one and triple for a clean one, and for that money I went for a 60,000km gt86 that's safetied, comes with summers and winters both on rims, isn't going to break and has a roof that won't leak. For that money you're looking at a questionable rx8 at best.

For 5k there are so much better American cars, I mean fuck who buys a 5k boxster or 300zx those are legit platforms then you represent america with a PT loser, yes I am American however I daily a M3 and have a 570 with dp and tune for a track toy so I am partial to European cars but everyone was 16 at a point and most 16 year old Americans that are into cars with a 5k budget for an American car will go camera or mustang...

    The shitty American car for the price is about right. In the UK you get a good car for a packet of crisps. Here in Canada, you can just barely get a running car with an interior for $5k.

    you'd think that a well-established automotive youtuber would know how to perform a burnout in a fwd car. tried to do a burnout using the brake pedal instead of the e-brake? cars use a front biased braking system, applying more braking to the front than the rear, rendering your fwd burnout efforts futile. unsubscribed.

      Miata wouldnt stand a chance it can't drift, it has no power for the drag race. Least you want is an MR2, something with just a little more power to make the challenges somewhat competitive. Maybe a NA 180, but i dont think any clean ones of those exist.

      Magnum was never sold in the UK. Cadillac failed in Europe so they're really hard to find (the only CTS we got was the 2005 3.6L, and that's only 255hp and way heavier than the other two anyway).
