I don't understand the argument of the RX-7 not selling well because of the badge. The GT-R has a Nissan badge and as much history as the RX-7. The Corvette is a Chevrolet. You could go on and on.

The clutch is extremely stiff which made the traffic in the DC area simply horrid. » 8/07/14 12:52pm 8/07/14 12:52pm

Jeep Cherokee XJ! Why? I know from first hand experience. Mine has the HO 4.0 with a 5MT. The only work it's ever had was a new CPS.
