Big Top Gear Fan, they hate everything American it seems.  Describes our muscle cars as Killer Whales cool to look at, but don't want to own one.

Guess the Brits that run the show need to be reminded about the Shelby Daytona coupe....more recent the Corvette boys they won how many lemans in a row? Aston Martin who? 575 marinella? Lol silly Brits.

They love the vette. As they put it. It is just to wide for there roads. Hamster loves muscle cars. They call him a American spy. He has a few old mustangs. When I say old. Like from the 60s old.  The one that bashes American cars all the time. You know they guy that yells power all the time. He truly hate muscle cars. At one time though. He had a Ford gt at one time. The reason why he sold it. He said it was to wide for there roads.

I know everything that's manufactured in Europe is the best.

I built 65,000lb 6 spindle, 8 spindle, 12 spindle and 16 spindle checkers for just about every car and brake manufacturer in the world. Every manufacturer in Europe and Japan too.

One of the four checkers I build was for gunite, does Kelsey Hayes ring a bell? These four checkers were manufacturing brake drums for trailer trucks. They went in a rough casting and came out all turned and drilled ready to install on the truck.

Each machine costs $750k and in the first three months running 24/7 the machines are paid for. Plus they had a 25 year life.

No one in the world could match our manufacturing might.

I wish we could focus on making a real sports car. We did once with Carol Shelby. Was any of the other engineers watching or learning?

Now let's take the motorcycle industry. The Japanese focused on quality. There new ideas aren't new if we look back at our early motorcycle industry with the four inline cylinders. It's our invention that they focused in on and made it better. Then they said they could put six cylinders in a row. We said no way. Guess what Honda and Kawasaki did it. We even had four valves per cylinder back then. What were the engineers thinking with two valves per cylinder when we had four already. We went backwards instead of forwards. To this day we can't get the bugs out of a harley, we have Porsche designing the engines now. With many parts from Japan too. Our engineers can't do this?

My point is we sit back fat dumb and happy about the little profits we do make when we should pour money into the R&D. We seem to follow more than lead.

I'm sure we could build a better corvette too. I'm not fond of the changes that we're done to cheapen the engines.

What has happened to the old Briggs Cunningham, Shelby race days what's changed since then. We have lost the drive for being the first in development. The motivation to be the best, the first.

Now we can't come up with an electric car that needs no charging?

Why are we still using fossil fuels and now ethanol for fuel when we should be pouring $$ into the R&D electric car.

I'm a porsche nut love the 911. Cars like this; the carerra gt, 959 etc where they think outside the box and go all in are always amazing works of art and engineering.

X2 that is how I became a fan rear engine, air cooled boxer 6 beating high reving v12s since I was a kid I just thought they were neat. Lately with all the commercial models the road cars aren't so interesting but I been following the race cars since Alex job to flying lizard racing and the DHL lmp2. Awesome cars!
