quote: I'd like some Honda historian fanatic to come along and tell us why and how Honda lost their original pair. What happened? Who left? Or who came in and changed things? Or were they near or at the top too long and then rested on their laurels?

quote: Anyone who believes V6 engines aren't good enough for real sports cars needs to inform Porshe, Nissan (GT-R), and Jaguar (XJ220) that their cars don't cut it. Who cares about real-world performance ... 8 is a bigger integer than 6!
