    And bought a Prelude, but then I tried to get in the car... I don't fit well in Preludes.

    With a D60/14B FF combo and 44" mudders, the Prelude should look pretty cool :D :haha: :rolleyes: !!

    Funny thing about Hondas and other small cars... after driving a truck forever, get in one of those and it does feel like a go-kart.

    Cars are lame... People are all like, "why do you drive a truck? That's why you're broke all the time, you have to buy gas for your Jeep"

    But I get a little freaked out when I can see the pavement about 2 inches under me going 75 mph... Not cool...

    We looked at a Chrysler Crossfire and thought it was pretty cool, until I tried to sit in it. My head rested against the driver's side window and door frame and I thought I was going to have to call for extrication to get out of it.

    Didn't even take it for a test drive!! The wife fit in it well though!!!

    I like Jenn's lowered down, loud Civic. It's a lot of fun to drive and race.

    I used to mess around with Triumph Spitfires. Getting in was like putting on a TIGHT pair of jeans. The fit was great, once all body parts were in place.

    I took the steering stops off one, and it would do a 360 in a 2 car driveway!
    Another "fun" factor, was the fact that while sitting in the driver's seat, I could hang my arm out the door, and touch the pavement with my fingertips.

    Gettin into my buddys 3000GT is weird. You can go WAY fast but when you pass a pickup you look over and see the top of their tires, lol


    I dont like not being able to see my hood either, it just bugs me
