i wish i was a toyota fan

then i wouldnt have the problems currently directed my way by the evil overlords at ford.

first they produce the XR6T. a car that fights out of its class and wins. a car that gets rave reviews. a car that i want.

then the XR8 is on the way. it promises to be more than the XR6T. so, i decide that i want one.

then ford announce the return of the GT. well, with my initials also being GT, and the car promising to be everything the XR8 is and more, i make up my mind. i gotta get a GT.

then today i pick up a copy of the english performance ford magazine. some ricey looking fords in there, but some seriously hard cossies and the last straw. i cant take it any more. after reading about the focus RS, where the hell am i going to get the cash for one of these as well??? huh??? did anyone at ford think of that? i think not. so, now i have to decide that if the RS comes to Oz, then one will have to make its way into my garage. dont know how i will afford one, and it will have to share garage space with the RS2000, but i dont mind.

it has all become too much. i think i will get myself a nice avalon, put those black door protectors with yellow reflectors on it, maybe those nice little marhers that you stick on the bumpers to help with parking and try to collect models of corollas, echos, camrys and taragos. that sounds like a fine solution.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Rsgerry, will you be buying one of those "sporty" Camry's.

You know the one I am talking about. The one with a whole 5kw more then the base model.

The guys at the Bowles club will be impressed.
