I don't think there is a law against rate of acceleration.
Its stupid...i'll say that. And it can be illegal actually, could be considered wreckless driving. Think about it..if your car did 0-60 in 2.3 seconds and you floored it everywhere. What if you decide to be a tool and floor it and the car in front of you needs to stop short for whatever reason and you slam into the back of him or swerve and hit a person on the sidewalk. Its just not a smart thing to do. Hence the wreckless driving

Yes, if there is a car in front of you, it's stupid. And yes, if your car does 0-60 in 2.3 seconds you're obviously quickly exceeding the speed limit.

But we're talking about a G37, not a Ferrari. If you're the first car stopped at a red light, and the road is clear, I fail to see how flooring your car to speed, or even 5-10 over is wreckless.

Running a red light, talking or texting while driving, are far better examples of wreckless driving than dropping the hammer from a red light if traffic is clear.

There are not enough hours in a day. Lately I've been working my 8 hours, coming home and working on one of two cars until dark, then cleaning up and putting tools away via flashlight, only to go inside take a quick shower, find something to eat and go to bed.

Rinse and repeat.

at one point i had 4 cars, and no time. due to some mild OCD, i'd even try to get my "winter beater" looking and running good. maintenance, cleaning and detailing, insurance, registration, inspections ... PITA.

that led me to an AWD car i could drive all year - the G37xS is my 7th AWD car.

The only retro car that looks any good is the Challenger anyway. The Mustang is just ugly and the Camaro doesn't resemble the classic in any way .

I'd say "used to" with respect to the Camero and the Mustang. When they were redesigned they did look like modern updates of their classic counterparts. Not so much anymore though...agreed. Same with the Beetle (yes damn it LoL) The 1st redesign was good but the refresh looks weird. The old Thunderbird was a decent retro..it was just a snoozefest on performance and too expensive with not enough options...thats why that one failed. I agree that the Challenger is the better looking of the retro's but I think over all its a little boring compared to the original. Its just blah.

i tried retro no work its like no one on the web wants to address the elephant. and yea the camaro definitely looks like a "retro" only effort they put in to make it look different is the headlights i guess. the body shape is pretty much the same to me. im not an american car enthusiast so i dont see the difference. but i am tired of seeing these tired *** designs on the road

I love how the challenger looks. Not liking how the newer mustangs are trending. I really liked the previous generation. Camaros seem like they're trying to look more like a corvette.
