Why doesn't /o/ love the middle finger to aristocracy car racing that is american automobiles
It just screams fuck you while simultaneously laying rubber onto the tarmac
op asked why I dont love them
I gave my reasons why
>no on poor quality
Isn't the F40 also of low quality? i remember seeing Jeremy Clarkson review one and he listed all the things that was wrong with it for the price.
>big panel gaps
>"it was badly made"
F40s are literally made of old chicken bones, tile grout, and bagels, the GT is infinitely better constructed
because the ideology behind them is equally as retarded as yuopean supercar aristocracy
>muh american underdog
Enzo was the son of a grocer with little formal education, in 1960 Ferrari was making 300 cars a year
In 1960 FoMoCo was the third largest corporation in the United States
Ford hired Lola to build it's race car and supplied the engines.
>expecting people who fanboy over "muh moosetang" to understand history
This so much. USA was much more powerful when it mattered, yet hasn't produced much relevant cars because average car enthusiast is mustang-driving, cousin-fucking redneck from alabama who denies every aspect of performance bar quarter-mile time.
Because the blind loyalty of the market and protectionism by the government have made American cars a constant stream of horrid shit following the initial post-war boom and surge in quality. That American cars have been horrid from the beginning of the 70s all the way through the 90s and even up until the bailouts is a fact, but even when you think they've gotten their shit together nowadays they will still prove you wrong soon afterwards.
Sure, sounds like you know a lot about racing history
yeah a big 7 liter V8 barely beating 3.8 liter Jags is impressive
thats why no one takes American cars seriously
theyre complete garbage with big engines to make up for their lack of everything else
No one meaning who? A subset of /o/ posters who discovered being a "car enthusiast" 2 months ago?
>yeah a big 7 liter V8
>theyre complete garbage with big engines to make up for their lack of everything else
What if you have garbage that has a big engine but it still rivaled its competitors in areas where it wouldn't have mattered if they had an equal sized engine (displacement wise) cause they'd still lose?
Not the original guy you were replying to of course and i uploaded the wrong pic.
>won in 1963
>againts 1.5 liter cortinas and 1 liter mini coopers that made less than 80 hp
>it had a 7 liter FE making 425 hp
>mfw the GTR did
>mfw the GTR BTFO the Corvette once again
Many successful American race cars were campaigned by non American teams, and still are, safe to say they "take them seriously" (as did the opponents losing to them). Unfortunately average non Americans (like you) aren't able to participate in amateur motorsports like Americans are, so I can't blame you for not knowing anything about racing history.
Enough said, that's the goal of racing, to win within the constraints of the rules, pretty simple concept.
>pic related won in 2008 under the GT1 class
>arrive at the local arcade
>beat a number of kids
>"I won, enough said"
i dont know
I think it was because it was "touring car championship" not "landyatch championship"
>Jaguar and aston martin dominated sports motor racing in the 50's and 60's
>"b-but le me race againts econoboxes"
>"rekt yurop, rekt"
>"w-why are you banning this car that isnt affordable from affordable entry level racing"
lol how delusional
why do euros get so butthurt over not having big engines? stop being so fuckin jealous, its like saying a porsche is stupid cause it has fancy suspension to make up for a small engine.
>sportsmanship = introducing new rules to let your cars win rather than make competitive cars
Not our fault you dont even fit in an econobox in the first place
it was pretty much like that in the old BTCC, but people didnt do that to keep things affordable
give me a call when you can afford to make a v12
I wasn't talking about racecars
He was talking about American cars in general
I am able to participate no problem in motorsports?? What are you basing this on?
>not knowing anything about racing history
I don't really its not really my thing, I did follow touring cars for a bit though, the point was about ford, but good work at dodgeing the statement though.
Anyone whos been here knows your full of shit anyway, I'e seen you called out and proved wrong by people who know what they are talking about plenty of times
I read somewhere that lee Iacocca wanted to buy honda engines for an american small car in the mid 70's but HFII told him "No car with my name on the hood is going to have a Jap engine inside."
Then the oil crisis happened and everyone bought 40mpg civics
>several years later
>decided to put shittier fiat engines inside
oh hello, would a twin turbo version of this change your mind?
