    Quite comfortable for me at 6', 200 lbs. If my upper body were 1" taller, I would be brushing the roof, though. Otherwise, it's a pretty roomy car- I made an 1800 mile trip in it a couple years back, no problems.

    I like it. Apparently some of the JDM supercars that were restricted from import from the 80's and 90's can now be imported.

    An "Assault Rifle" is an full-automatic or select-fire rifle.

    An AR-15 is not an "Assault Rifle". An AR-15 is a semi-automatic center-fired magazine-fed rifle.

    There is no such thing as an "Assault Weapon". The term "Assault Weapon" was made up by the anti-gun wackos in the late 80's to describe any gun they do not like.

    And the Democrats in Sacramento have carried on the gun-control push ever since.

    That is surprising since the AR muzzle velocity is probably three times my 45. However, the AR rounds tend to tumble.

    I also like mine for target practice in the back yard. I fire down into some oak logs. Although there are no houses within two miles in that direction, it is possible that someone is out in the woods. The max absolute range of the 45 is a mile. I have chewed through one log about a foot and a half in diameter. Probably took close to a thousand rounds to do it.

    You're thinking of "Assault Weapon", not "Assault Rifle."

    The term "Assault Rifle" does exist and describes a full-automatic or select-fire rifle.

    The term "Assault Weapon" is a made up term by the anti-gunners in the late 80's to describe any gun they do not like.

    The laws have remained pretty much the same since Right wing nuts and the NRA crushed the 2nd Ammendment here in ‘67. When negroes started to assert their right to defend themselves the righties got all liberal in a hurry. So don’t post anymore of your hypocritical bullcrap about Democrats and gun control here in California.

    "The laws have remained pretty much the same"???

    LMFAO! Hell no they haven't.

    California currently has over 800 gun laws on the books.

    And there are a few more going through committee right has we speak.

    Here. Buy this book and freshen up on your CA gun laws...

    Several of those statutes were signed into law by Republican Governors Pete Wilson, George Dukmejian, Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwartzenegger. And the floodgates were opened by right wing reactionaries and the NRA overreacting to a few black people asserting their rights. Your boys did it champ....Own it!!!

    Did you hear me?

    There are over 800 gun laws in California today and the vast majority of those gun laws were under Democratic governors.

    Once you start a trend like Reagan and his Republican State Senate did, it’s hard to stop.

    No, it's easy to stop. Just stop passing unconstitutional laws that infringe on our 2nd Amendment.

    Nope. Only in your mind.

    In fact Article one Section 8 of the Constitution describes that "well regulated militia" as used to put DOWN the kind of insurrection you describe....and that's exactly how it was used both in Shay's Rebellion and the Whiskey Rebellion

    This remind me of how Candace Owens claimed that the NRA are for the self defense of blacks.

    I've seen a few right-hand drive's around recently, which would be JDM or European imports. Mine was the property of one owner, bought for his Florida vacation home- never out of the state, kept in an air conditioned garage except when he was there on vacation. All papers from the price sticker forward, so it's all original and fully documented. When I first saw one of these I'd have have loved to have bought one, but the price was way, way out of my range. So it's old- but still in my opinion one of the best looking cars ever built. people sometimes what's under the car cover in my garag; I tell them it's a Japanese Ferrari...
    Which is pretty accurate, that was the target it was built to compete with.

    They really are awesome cars. VERY distinctive in person.

    As a kid, I played racing games that featured it. I always went with red.

    Do you have a reading comprehension problem?

    Reread what I posted really really slooooowwwwly.

    An "Assault Rifle" is not an "Assault Weapon".

    A myth propagated by anti gun advocates meant to deceive those ignorant of firearms. Often followed by a description that would suggest a weapon firing deadly high power ammunition, capable of killing a bazillion people in seconds when fire in a fully semi-auto mode. Oh yea.... has a bayonet lug, vertices grip, an adjustable plastic stock, and is painted in all black camouflage.
