    In a hyperbolic sense, I agree. We all gotta start somewhere and everyone's needs are different. CTR is perfect for certain tracks, Miats & BRZs and the sort are fun if you do AutoX. Subies for people that need 1 car that does everything.
    Back in the late early 2000's you could pick up a 180/240SX for like 3 grand and spend another 3k on mods to make it a drift missile. Do a few simple mods on an EG/EK to beat F-bodies; tune an SW20 to match Porsches.
    These days I think dedication and knowledge matters as much as first hand experience.

    I have five motorcycles, a NB with glitter in the oil and one of the best suspensions money can buy, finally sold my old Ram to my neighbor's dad after I'd had enough of its transmission nonsense, had a VW Alltrack 6MT with the basic APR tune until it got deer'd, and now I have a 20 Mazda 6 with the 2.5T. I have had everything from an old VW Beetle to a SN95 Mustang to HEMI Ram to a shitbox Shitsubishi Mirage to a Ford Pinto in my immediate family. The favorite car I had from my youth was the 89 EscortGT 5MT. I have autocrossed, trackday'd, and taken that NB places Jeep Brahs have given me the Tucker Carlson look for. I have chased down a GTI in a stock NC2 on track. I have driven in every environment available in the United States except the concrete hellscapes and seething masses of the northeast and the actually-difficult 4WD trails of the Southwest. I have driven a jingle truck in Afghanistan. Your arguments are invalid.
