In Reply to: What do you 1.9L owners love most? posted by Mike Dicillo on March 02, 2001 at 16:13:01:
I really do miss the power and torque of my old car but the looks of the 1.9 compensate for that. I like best about the 1.9 is that the front end is so long that alot of people think theres a big v8 in there plus the handling and supersprint! Its gotta be frusterating for the guy in the faster car to get left behind in the curves. They do catch up on the straights but I always tap the brake just b4 they catch up to let them know Im backing off and its over (b4 I get smoked) :)
Most times I dont engage in speed contests, I just give the other guy a slight glance and smile. Its such a teriffic car that speaks for its self; I dont have to prove anything else.
I may not be too rich or too fast but damned if I dont look the part!!
