I'm not sure if something is wrong or right with me.

Case in point: the other day I got more excited about seeing a first-gen Honda Insight in traffic than a brand-new Supra.


I blame all of you.

First-gen Insight is pretty rad.

I saw a JDM FD today, sadly in a no cameras allowed part of the base.

It's just a better looking car. And more practical. And cheaper. And slower. Only downside is that it's not a BMW.

I get way more excited about seeing something like a Tatra then any Lamborghini or McLaren.

I was discussing a 2 year old Civic Si and said: "It's a fine car, and fun to drive, it just isn't interesting since you can go buy one new."

I saw a AMC Spirit AMX at a Cars and Coffee a couple weeks back. Definitely more interesting than any of the "super" cars that usually show up.

Love me some first gen Insight.  I got excited about seeing a mint 99-06 Celica the other day here in the rust belt.

I'm glad to see I'm among like-minded individuals.

Don't get me wrong, modern cars are really great, but it's also fun to enjoy what was once brand new (for an often cheaper price).
