Polka dots, with "Free Candy!" painted on the side. Mothers will love you.

And it'd be Generar Ree if you wanted to go after the racial slur jokes.


Otherwise Castrol Rally.

Just FYI, "Engrish" is not exactly a racial slur, it references the fact that the "L" sound isn't really a part of Japanese so when they speak English it can be very good but still have trouble with the "L"s. Heck, Toyota's electronic parts catalogue has some entries for "Brack" upholstery etc.

Engrish is most certainly a slur, when you're doing it intentionally. Not that the Japanese aren't all about xenophobia, but to say it isn't a slur would be a lie. It's a stereotype which doesn't fit all Japanese speakers. Now a days, younger Japanese are introduced to English early enough that many can speak English "L"s very well.

Now if you're incapable of saying "L"s because you've only been introduced to Ra Re Ru Ri Ro as opposed to la le lu li lo, that's entirely different. But I'm being persnickety.

It doesn't help that Japanese is insanely difficult to be a fluent reader in in the first place.


Not to thread jack, I was just being dickish.

Yes, you're being persnickety at best. One of my best friends lives in Japan teaching English and is marrying a Japanese woman this summer. No it's not a slur, it's a description of an lingual idiosyncrasy, and I appreciate that you probably take Japanese or watch anime or maybe you are Japanese, heck if I know, but you're being silly about it. It's no more a racial slur than noting that British people add an "r" to the end of every word that ends in "a" or noting that Texans say "Ya'll" (calm down, I lived in Houston for 15, Texans do say ya'll), or noting that most Europeans I've met write their 9's like lower case "g".

Now intentionally using Engrish while talking to a Japanese person is rude, in the same way talking like Apu is rude when talking to an Indian, but it's not technically a slur, it's mimickry.

So yeah, don't thread jack, and don't be dickish, and especially don't do those things while being wrong :)

I think the Rally look is great but if it's not an ST165, it loses some of the sex appeal. I personally prefer the solid colours of either stock or custom gunmetal/pewter/silver. Doesn't get any sexier that that. Check out this gorgeous grey on "Lone Wolf's" car:
