Default Friday night ride to dinner

I can't get enough of driving this beast. It handles soooo good, accelerates like a rocket and sounds like a muscle car. I love my RCF! If you have not driven one, go to a dealer and ask.....

The grill is very tough. It's made from hog wire and it's a Yugo. Thanks for asking!

I can't believe you did not get the track edition, I love mine. I am just kidding, and jealous. I doubt the dealer would let me in one, as I drive up in my astro van.

I miss my 350 IS F-Sport. The car was quick, comfortable, and handled well.

Lot of work to get those lines to work in all views. Then there is fit and finish - flushness/margins of all adjacent parts not to mention mold vector and draft and parting lines. Looks great but a lot went into the development/execution of this grille fascia area.

I care more about interior than looks. Not a lexus fan, some stuff feels too toyota'ee for me

Digging my new Mercedes, everything feels tight and high quality

X1000. Sorry I’m sure it’s an awesome ride but horrible to look at.

Funny thing, I was all set to order the scat pack Challenger until I went to the Dodge owner forums and found out the engine warranty was questionable due to all the racing.

That's when I leased the Lexus Is. I figured their engines are good for at least 250k if I decided to keep her. Turns out I needed to buy a truck.
