[s-cars] Worthy projects (was Alum..was UrS $)

I don't think open minds are the issue here - everyone knows there are great 
cars being built right now, and everyone knows what they are: M5s, RX8s, 
996s, etc....we're enthusiasts!  You can feel you're done and movin' on, and 
that's great - go build something fun, but there are those of us who will 
continue to get a kick out of running fast in something that's just doesn't 
look fast.  There are many forms of JNR - not all are the searing 
hot-ohmygodwe'regonnadie unadulterated speed JNR, this is more of the 
whatsupwidat why is this happening JNR.  I don't need to have little kids 
point at my car and gawk.  I like it when things are not as they appear.  MP 
is user-friendly performance in a stealthy package, the Avant even better. 
It's weird, it's geeky, and it's stupid, but I think it's cool.  I don't 
look down my nose at ricers and kids who slam their cars any stick sewer 
pipes out the back - I think that's its own kind of cool too, but I don't 
want to do it.  And when I want to go really scary-fast I jump in my shifter 

If you get any closer to the mainstream you're gonna have to lose that 
"Q-ship" moniker - it ain't a Q-ship if everyone expects it to go like hell.
