> What Makes a car fun to drive depends on the driver.
> Acceleration alone makes some happy. The 67 Corvette 427 L88 single 4 barrel was rated at 425HP ( underrated on purpose by Chevy) and would definitely press you into the seat back as it turned in a 11.88 ET 1/4 mile Stock.
> High G forces alone makes some happy, there are many low CG well balanced high priced mostly foreign cars that fit this bill. Not necessarily fast or good looking. Although some were, such as specialty cars like the AC Sheby Cobra, but it wasn't very practical as a daily driver.
> I had a 67 Fiat 850 Spider that was fun to drive even though it was lacking in power it made up for it in handling and styling.
> Then there are cars most of us like that have a degree of comfort, acceleration, good handling, styling and sex appeal.
> I consider the MR2 to be one of these. It is well balanced, has good styling, attracts attention, holds the road under acceleration and braking, comfortable enough for medium length drives and enough power to have some fun and stay out of trouble, not to try to get in to trouble. Bob A
