Cool Road & Track picks STI top 12 Fun cars

Anybody else catch this new article? Nice pick of the mud covered STI next to the pristine bling mobile truck. Good company to be in, along with MUstang GT, Elise, Miata, 911, ect.

Well the srt-4 is fun to drive until it implodes.

That is, if burnouts are your bag.

Indeed. Read it again today while in the waiting room at the dealership. Reads like an 8th graders attempt at an essay. Worst car magazine ever.

I was making a funny. While I don't take the word of magazine editors as gospel, sometimes they write things worth pondering.

Not really. I am not a big corvette fan, but they are probably right about this. When you consider value and performance it probably is the best overall sportscar.

For my next wagon I'd love that E55 AMG...the picture of the kids in back with helmets at the dragstrip is priceless. Wonder if they'll take a couple internal organs as a down payment...

That certainly wouldn't be my pick. But I'm sure they had numbers that went along with their choice.

I didn't read the article.
