Thats because theyre prolly rev heads like all the other V8 loving blokes here.... they get so pissed when a tiny little "Echo" can swerve in and out of lanes and stick to their bumpers in traffic.......AND use half the petrol doing it.
I remember a friend of mine saying "Mate.. u just cant do anything besides deliver milk with a 2L engine...."
Joseph has pretty much captured the Australian male attitude towards cars with that quote. Bigger is better.
Holdens seem to be the average Rev-heads car of choice, but you have to start paying a fair ammount to match the Clio Sport (172) in performance, let alone handling.
There was a very limited number of MK1s releases here (72 i think), but there is a growing number of Mk 2s around. You occasionally see one parked or drive past, and theres a few enthusiests. This sunday theres about 7 Mk 1 and 2s from Sydney going on a drive though some twisty roads up north, so the Clio spitit is very much alive!
My friends think my car looks like an Echo, until i take them for a spin.
