old school new school

Im and when I went to school rear wheel drive , large powerfull cars were the only cars to have / be seen in etc , you know XDs & XEs with 302 winsors and 351 clevos with big 15' globeline mags , hq 308s with 5sp dragways and vb ss 308s ...

anyway this past has resulted in me buying a large rear wheel drive , large displacement six cyl FORD FALCON sedan ( think about it the past alters what we become)

What im getting at is the change in australian mage of 'coolness' , nowdays if your 16 yrs old , cool is a turbo 4cyl 4wd subaru , or a lancer with 19' alloys and a 3 thousand $ sound system , but to me my brothers xe 351 loud as a mother****er sedans better than a loud stereo and pretty wheels .........

any way what do you think about the asian motoring influance on the aussie youth of today.......

Problem is these ricey car's are just as fast as fords and holdens and some of them a cheaper too. Was checking out new cars today and saw about 6 R32 skylines for under $12,000. I want a xr6 ED or EF and there $12,000+. So it makes sense to by these small ricey imports cause they are cheap , go hard and handle the road better than a falcon ever will. But hey ive had 2 Big falcons and loved them both.(when they dont stuff up that is :) 0

I find the reason for the younger generation liking rice is because most, not all, but most don't know shit about cars, and I mean absolutely nothing. You start talken bout a turbo in ur car and everyone is like "hey man, ur the bomb" and seein movies like the fast and furious made them all think that those rice skylines and everything else were king shit. I showed my mums VL to a group of the "cool" people from school and told them it was turbo'd and had NOS, the idiots believed me and thought that an air box was a turbo and the injectors was what gave it NOS.

Not all of us are like this tho, there are alot of people like myself who know there way around a car and are seriously into the heritage of it all and want to see it continue. I would rather have a stocko 8 over a fully riced up blown milk carton
