That last guy in the pics must have a gland problem LOL
An STI & EVO aren't 40,000, and the G35 can be had for a couple of grand more.

But that's not his point.

His point is, it's ridiculous.

Entry Sports Cars
The style and performance of sporty cars promise more than a regular ride. More...

His point (Let me know if I'm wrong, wolf) is the v6 outperforms just everything in it's catogory. Including the Hyundai 6, the Eclipse 4, the Chrysler 6, etc. Of those, ONLY the Chrysler 6 comes close.

The GT, despite being an 8, has competition, not only from smaller displacement 4s, but 6s, and in terms of hp, the GTO blows it away. So where are the bragging rights?

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.
