As a del sol driver, im sure you have experienced some people talking shit about your car?

I really don't understand why people talk and think so much smack about the del sol.
It is a very efficient and can be (with the right engine and suspension) a very powerful car.

And yet, people still talk as if its a chicks car, or a guy who is in his 50's car.
A car that cannot perform.

I noticed, its not just the del sol, people will talk smack about the Miata, MR2 (the spyder mostly, but i have heard some hate on the classic MR2's), S2000, and even heard some hate on the Lotus :eek2!
Any type of car that is a 2 door convertible! :mad

I don't think I will ever understand why these wonderful cars have such a bad reputation.
People don't understand that these cars were not built to be super cars, they were built with drivablity in mind. To have the ultimate cruise experience with much better handling over power.

the older mr2's are badass why would anyone hate on them, even I had one. I'm thinking about getting another.

the miata is a chicks car its that simple.

the s2000, never heard anyone call it a chicks car and I don't suppose I ever will.

del sol meh its ok but I've had better

You just answered your own ?. I dont like some of those cars because of the looks but im not going to bash em.

Those people that talk a bunch of junk, will later admit that building an "ugly" 2200lb car FWD around 300hp could get faster track times than a 500hp 3000lb RWD..FWD 25+mpg...:ninja. If they dont agree, well. Just walk away...

you do know what a motorcycle is don't you? lots of power rwd and 300-400 lbs. I don't think that 300hp car is winning

so if it is girlie.....and all the girls want me to take them for a ride......and i have a different hot girl with me every time the "haters" see me..... i think i know why they hate.....they are not us!!! and just green with envoy. and when the big loud mouth guy at the stop light talks shit to me... well the girl in my passenger seat will laugh while she is looking at them in the rear view mirror..... it is no wonder they hate, we smash their egos and still get better gas mileage.

well... miatas have no power and they are too small thats why no one buys them. S2K's are sick and lots of people build them to drift and i have never heard anyone talk shit. Personally, i think the del sol is kind of weird but to each his own. If you like it thats all that matters who cares if someone talks shit? just make sure you can beat them in a race and your golden.

ummm s2k's are rarely built to drift. they have shitty power bands for the sport and their gearing is complicated. not to mention parts are expensive and the only way to make more power with them is boost. miatas are better for drifting because of the wheel base and the ease to make more power

I forget where, maybe it was here? Miata with a KL DE swap, build allmotor. That thing kicked ass, I bet that woulda been a monster of a drift car, considering stock KLDE's in a probe GT coupled with a 5 speed put out fair numbers for a cheap semi-sporty car that still gets 30mpg :lmao
