4 banger or muscle car which is better

I own both, one gets me to work and one gets me to the track. The one that gets me to work would suck at the track and the one that goes to the track sucks driving to work so they both have their good points. Anyway we are talking Apples & Oranges...

Whatever you can afford or whatever you what to drive is better for that person. This better crap is just S**t stirring if you ask me. Drive what you want and who cares what the rest say.

I haven't seen to many 50 year old Ricers and I also haven't seen a lot of 16 year old muscle car drivers so its more about 'the generation' and 'the times' then about whats better.

I have a rwd v-8 car because I enjoy the power, but it also makes sense for me because I live 15mins from Atco Raceway. The nearest road course is in Englishtown and I can't possibly forsee driving any car that far to flog it on a road course then drive home...plus road racing is more expensive than just heading down to the drags every now and then.

The sound of a 4-banger at 6500rpm just screams "come and get me", whether it's a nearby cop or a late-model ninja f-body. I hate this new age "ricer" business...it's not so much the cars I hate rather than the people. I've spent some time behind an early-90's 240sx and it was a fun car...no it wasn't a rocket but it was sure-footed, even on the skinny stock tires. I don't mind if people want to make a show car out of these little imports...that I can appreciate, especially when it's packed with trick one-off pieces that the owner spent days working on...but don't pack your civic with 500lbs of audio equipment, 20" spinners, fart can mufflers, and aluminum pic-nic tables and then try to pull up on me like a hardass....people like that are a waste of a human body.

And that's my rant.
