Some people have gone off topic here but ho well. I just want to add a little to what evereyone said.
First, it is true that some jap cars are just plain cool and they deserve some respect.
In my personal opinion I HATE
almost all jap cars. I mean Imagine that feeling you get when you beat a so called "unbeateable" honda with a 38 year old muscle car by almost 2secs. on the drag strip.
Most of us that don't get to see an Skyline, Supra TT, and cars of that caliber everyday, have to put up with all the other rice burners out there/ Those of you that have respectable European and American sports cars know what I am talking about.
Third, It isn't good to stereotype, People have to know to pick their fights just because most jap cars don't go past crap, does not mean that the rest are like the rest of the ricer majority.
