The V is trailing the GT-R for car of the year. Not like this poll is life and death just interesting to see.

Yeah! in 86 the Renault Fuego was car of the year.. Then the Isuzu Impulse.... It's kind of hit or miss on that poll. Some sh!tty cars have made car of the year.

You know that every publication is going to give their award to "Godzilla" :bigroll:.

Meanwhile, the Nissan Dealer down the street from me has two of them in showroom gathering dust. One of my customers waiting for his V stopped in just to look at it, and they practically begged him to buy one at MSRP (no bump).

Speaking of the GT-R it is getting bad reviews to do with trans. ie 15 launches and tranny rebuild time.

That Gt-R looks like a Hyundai Tiburon on steroids. You decide:

Ouch. :pwn:

Sound sort of like the first gen Honda S2000- people were doing 8,000 rpm clutch bombs to get the promised 0-60 times, but three or four of them was enough to send it up in smoke.

Lake Nissan. If you buy one, tell 'em I sent you so they'll give me a finders fee. ;)
