Another one? "Mainstream"?! That's as good as Elijah's! You miss the
point, and haven't been for a ride in any of my projects kind sir. I would think
that just my deviant behavior in organizing Steamboat every year would give
me a lifetime copyright to "qship". And sneaking in a LT1Q MP/MP wagon
chasing supercharged Landcruiser to the party 2 years ago sure kept me out of the
You didn't ride with me on my 951 excursion last week, or my group a S2 "odo
checks", or my RS6 test drives, or the stunt driver for Apikols cover shots
of the 90 at steamboat this year (chad did). Then again, you also didn't see
the type 44 Steamboat car I built that 'looked' mainstream.
These ascriptions are all keepers. I assure you, your and Elijah's
ascriptions couldn't be further from the reality of my style, constructs, design, or
driving styles. Please don't mistake my mission of looking for the stories,
with a desire to see less craziness. I've been living that longer than this
list has been around.
With all due respect, another coffee spitter. I gotta stop wearing these
white quattro shirts....

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.
