I don't understand why you're wasting money on insignificant stuff like brakes when you should be figuring out how to stuff a BorgWarner s366 into the bay

If you need to stop, it's because you're going too slow

This car is starting to grow on me. Shitty suspension, ugly wheels, but damn, the body lines look good.

Took it to WWE smackdown at the Rose garden tonight.

Yeah, the SW20 goes up there on the list of 90s cars that I really liked the styling of. FD, NB, 2nd gen Probe, MR2, to a lesser extent some of the DSMs and the 240SX. I'm mostly not a huge fan of what happened to exterior styling after Y2K.

Second best-looking (sub-$50k) car of the 90's IMO.

I went and saw WWE Raw a few months ago. I have just about zero interest in wrestling, but god damn was it an entertaining 4 hours or however long it was. The one thing that disappointed me was that you could not hear the announcers in the stadium. Was that the same when you saw smackdown?

Was Shamus the red hair Irish guy there wrestling? My friend who I was with kept starting a chant of "Shamus is a Ginger" whenever he came out. The few red heads sitting a few rows ahead of us were not amused.

I think so. It was pretty fun. We were in an executive suite through Hailey's company. Lots of free food.

Does the e30 really count as a 90s car?

This thread is now an argument over ugly blob looks vs crisp clean rectangles.
