Thumbs up GTR taunting.

I have come in contact with 3 GTR's within the last 3 days. Attached is a photo of a GTR that was parked next to me as I left school the other day(sorry, cell phone quality). I will admit, most cars do look big compared to miatas, but the GTR looks just HUGE. GTR taunting.-gtrfatboy.jpg

I had another encounter on the freeway this morning with a silver GTR. Driver still had dealer sticker on it. He was barely driving the speed limit, but had a white knuckled grip on the steering wheel. My first encounter was 2 days ago, dark grey GTR and the driver was driving like a badass. Awesome engine note. Anyways, if I run into the COBB GTR I am going to take it as an omen and will be forced to buy a GTR.

And here i don't like parking my miata next to people in public parking lots....I guess he can afford to pay for door ding removals.

I've only seen one and it was just a glimpse. Dont want to sound like a fanboy but I'd give my left nut for one, preferably an R34.

I don't know, but they are getting there. The new Jetta is the size of a couple year old Passat and the new Civic looks really big. I hadn't really noticed before, but one passed me the other day and it just looked like a large car.

I can't wait to play with one on the track, regardless of the end-result.

Hell, it looks big compared to what looks like a Passat on the other side of you.

GSM reviewed it this month. One editor said something like "I don't care that it's a bloated pig and has electronic nannies up the wazoo. It's still the fastest car I've driven on the track. Complain all you want while I'm passing you."

Even worse when it's one of those cheesy chrome ones up front with the manufacturer's badge on it, so there's a badge on the hood grill and then another just to drive the point home..

I have seen only one in person. I think they are about the size of the new Nissan Maxima. They are pretty big cars.
