like 10 years earlier. That way I woulda been around when Toyota rally raced. I REALLY love the idea of rally. I mean cmon...Your job is to haul ass thru jungles and forests and shit. How cool is that! Now rally isnt a big deal anymore. I wanna get an AWD turbo car and just go haul ass thru a jungle!!

Ummm...wat? Rally is still a big deal...and its even getting more-so in the states than ever...just Toyota isn't involved. ...and yes, you probably shoulda got an EVO.

I wish I had been born in the late 30s so I could have enjoyed the Hot Rodding heyday in the late 50s through early 70s.

I so would have loved me a 50 Merc leadsled with a flathead Ford...

well toyota would still be in the wrc but they were banned for taking the restrictor plates off the cars, i mean dont get me wrong i love my celica but yes it would be awesome to see them rally again, i do autocross but its just not the same

Groupe B was awesome. I remember when Audi entered the Quattro and turned everybody on there heads. The Porsche 959. Ah, the golden age.

It was a time when a "turbo" badge was seen on sooo many cars. God I miss Ronald Reagan.

God I miss Ronald Reagan.

A few years ago, I would have mocked you.

Now, after realizing my own set of values, and not those imposed upon me by others, I second this sentiment.

Hehe...evo's and Wrx's are all that competes now days. There is the occational european ford that can be cool...but back in the day rally > now rally for sure.
