This is the 1978 Pontiac Trans Am my uncle purchased new in 1978:
Hey, if Nismo and Waffles got to rave about the GT-R and Enzo respectively, hell yeah I want to be able to do the same with the FD RX-7.
I was going to wait till someone else selects it for Car of the Week to properly polish and finish up a spiel I've been working on on and off for the past few months, but with the thing that we're discussing in PMs (can we talk about that here?), I simply had, had to select the FD RX-7, my childhood dream car, when offered this chance. This is the car that introduced me to cars and video games, and made me love cars. It gave my life meaning and direction since I was a kid. It's an incredibly personal car to me, and asking me to "review" the car would be like asking me to write a love letter I never had the balls to as a teen, to give you an idea of the unhealthy amounts of cheese and cringe in my "review" I will publish when I feel it's ready.
That said, I recognise and accept that it has its own very glaring flaws. I hope no one holds back on their opinion just because of my attachment to the car. In fact, I want to hear everything everyone has to say about it. It's important to me. I want to know how others perceive it, how it affects them, etc.. It doesn't have to be thought out, or good. I just enjoy hearing others talk about it, both the good and bad. It would mean an incredible lot to me.
Gonna take a while for a n00b like me to get used to this one... or I have to remember not to punch the gas so soon. Could only manage a 2:33.899 around the mount.
So I guess you're game for tomorrow's race then? That would mean I'll also participate I guess. Oh and also: please include me again in your story, as the awkward, filthy rich German, who likes to name Nordschleife lap times (and since a few months also the top speeds + Tsukuba times).
@XSquareStickIt When's the race? I did not participate in a long time, totally out of the loop, but REALLY wanna join this one.
From Today until Sunday you can send in your votes for COTY and BOTY. The winners will be announced next Monday and then Tuesday we will go racing with the COTY.
The cars that up for COTY and BOTY are from Weeks 68-116. Once you have chosen a vehicle that is worthy of these titles you can send a message to me. Looking forward to COTW 2021.
Are we only doing COTY and BOTY this year? What about the other awards, like best looking, worst looking, most artistic, etc.? Can we nominate other awards? I'd like to pitch a new award for "Car that provided the best racing", if possible.
We really didn't get many. Most of the time there were two or three nominees, only because two or three people actually picked a car.
