I was watching one of those Japanese difting videos the other day and got surprised. Camera is standing of the outside of a corner and here comes a pack of about 10 cars. Rx7....Supra...Rx7...wait a second, WHAT WAS THE FOURTH CAR - a rewind and about 15 replays showed that it was a 5kt, and not only that but the 7th car was another one! 

-Cody Forbes
'86 5ktq
'87 5ktq EFI/K27 - Drifts quite nicely with the difflocks on!
'88 80 4cyl - Drift? Whats that?
'88 90 4cyl

>Hi all,
>Was watching the tube last night, a McDonald's ad came on (one of those odd "I'm lovin' it" ones)  The main character is looking at a Jag in a showroom, then another car, and then finally ends up getting a Gremlin from a used car lot - behind the negotiating character, salesman and the Gremlin is a Stone Grey Metallic Type 44 turbo.  I haven't got the ad on tape to see if it has the "quattro" badge in the grille, but it even has the "Aero" rims that my '87 is using now (with snows).  It took me a couple seconds and I said, "Holy crap!!! Look at that...It's my car!!!!"
>Wife replies, "Yeah....apparently it's worth 3000....must be Lire, not dollars." Sigh...she's incorrigible.
>At least they didn't choose that car to show the McD's employees pushing the guy out of the drive thru in the last scene.

>1987 Audi 5kTQ - I'm Lovin' It Special Edition....would you like fries with that?
>1980 Audi 5k - the colour of a Supersize order of fries - before the buzzer is ignored and the fries burn
>1962 and '64 Auto Union DKW Junior deLuxes - could probably use fry grease as 2-stroke oil....
