Some really nice cars in there including my buddies AE86. Why does that fender flared S13 look so good?

You weren't kidding, that S13 does look good. Best one I've ever seen.

The wheels on the VW look like someone assembled them incorrectly.

At first, I thought, "that's a pretty nice AE86." Then I clicked on the SpeedHunter's link and saw it was a V8. Do you know what engine?

Also, I skimmed past this VW and wondered how it possibly made the list...



... then I saw the caption: "AP'S 650hp AWD VW R32."

That's a heck of a sleeper.

Voted for the red Civic on black 6ULs, because it is the only car in that entire list that actually looks like a street car.
