Muscle cars - are we missing out?

Thanks to our unfriendly road tax structure, muscle cars won't be making their way here anytime soon. But Joseph still thinks they should be present on our roads...

domino88 If I ever get one (and can afford to maintain one), I'll like mine to be navy blue with white stripes. Well, navy blue is almost as close o black at night.

azfar I'd love to get the Dodge Challenger though...there's something about its shape and design that I seem to love, VERY much.

domino88 Challenger surely is an impressive car. I like the new Ford Mustang bullitt but not with the original green.

joshwong The base Ford Mustang may only cost USD 21k in US, but may cost SGD 100k here. Or more.

domino88 Wow, SGD 100K. I might still need another SGD 15-20K to beef it up to race standard. No harm dreaming, it don't cost much.

Mirage77 Good article. I am one for the Mustang/Challenger/Camaro trio to be brought to Singapore. Are they produced in RHD though?

I promised myself to get a Camaro if I do study in the States...

Hi,

I am looking for a sporty car but not willing to spend more than $60k for a car; what do you guys think of the new Subaru Impreza 1.5R?

21 Oct 2007
I am wondering is it a good time to buy this car. COE is @ 14000 car retail price 60988 and OMV @ 16K.
Do you think price will drop further?
Any comments?

Jeffrey74 Frankly if your Budget is around 55-60+k get the Mazda 3 sp, the Lancer EX 1.5 is under powered and pretty noisy, looks wise though nice I personally feel not as "fierce" as the Mazda 3 ,

That ...

ifconfig there's never a good time to get car... just ask yourself how much you wanna lose on a car... of course, get the car you like... that's most important thing.

mojo I think when it comes to "slow pick-up" and the Lancer being "noisy" its subjective, it would depend on what you are or were used to, e.i. what you were driving before; what would you take as a ben...

accyt1978 i think noisy engine is common.. unless the car is sound clad or sound proof..

if the drive is noisy then.. it's very difficult to judge since not all test drive cars are using the same tires...

Hi,

does anyone know if the 2008 Honda Civic is coming to our shores?

check out this website:

domino88 I like the new tail light. Unlike the batmobiles we saw on our roads.
26 Oct 2007
sumo Wow! Nice!
Doubt it'll be on our roads (unless from PI). KM will not change the civic so soon. Besides, the civic hatch that's widely seen in UK hasn't been seen here.....or did I miss something?

neutral Honda Integra has stop production since Dec 2006. I think the PI also cannot get liao. Maybe only from 2nd hand dealer.

joshwong I see... thanks... I saw a post at SGcarmart for an Integra registered in Sep-06, and has only gone 10km! It is going for $72k.

Do you guys think this car is a lemon or it is worth checking out?
