Recently fellow TW member Sup2Dresq compared my tennis game to the Chevy Cobalt. While at first it doesn't sound all that great -- I am thinking it might be pretty accurate. My strokes aren't entirely reliable so I can't be the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla of the tennis world. I hit with pretty good power but I'm not a power player so I can't even be a Ford Mustang GT which probably equates to a unreliable power hitter. Oh and he picked out a neon yellow Chevy Cobalt and by golly - I do have yellow skin.

i compare myself to an 06 Civic Si. it's my current car and will be for a very long time due to payments, etc.
http://oregonstate.edu/~lamontm/tennis/DSCN2443.jpg

even though it's not a super car like an Evo, it's extremely fun to drive. In my opinion, easily as fun as an s2000 or RX-8. I actually like naturally aspirated cars over the more jerky turbo'd cars like the STi or Evo. Kinda like my game...even though I may be a low level player, I still have a ton of fun and I think it's fun to play with me even if you're better than me/not as good as me.

I'm no race car driver by any means, but I like to drive like one sometimes -_- taking racing lines and taking turns as if I'm on a track. Rev-matching and heel-toeing as much as I can. Kinda like how I try to play/have similar looking strokes as pro's.

Just like I can sometimes beat better or weaker players or more experienced players with some good shots and rare exquisite shots, I can trounce on a lot of the cars out there...like the cobalts, scions (-_-) and other heavy trucks and minivans

...but I still lack torque and only have 200hp....very good for a 4banger, but obviously there are a lot of more powerful cars out there. My added 50lbs of fat that I have affects my acceleration in my car...just like it affects my tennis game...slows me down.

my game looks pretty good, as does my car, but it's still not a polished Lexus or BMW. Still just a souped up economy car.

What I want to be is.............hmm....a Ferrari....360. or F430 -_- ferrari red, manual, tan leather interior. I want to be as good as Federer.

http://static.flickr.com/241/524464040_f59681102a_m.jpg Mmm....the F430.

Actually, I wanna be even better than Federer. I want to be like Agassi ^_^...like the Lamborghini Murcielago Reventon

wow lots of super cars. its gone from what you would be to what you want haha


the s2000 naturally aspirated is just beast. it runs on teh track next to a ferrari. the integra gsr is right next to it. thats the car i want.

but i am afraid my tennis is more a ford-cheap, crappy, unreliable, inconssitent, etc:(

Perhaps you aren't a Kia since you are very assuming (read article below). We'll find you a Ford Junker.. like a used 1995 Escort with different colored body parts and no muffler.

Kia earns a top place in major car reliability survey
29 January 2007
Kia vehicles have won a top place in one of the world’s biggest surveys that investigates the reliability of more than 450,000 cars aged from three to nine years old. More than 82% of the owners of Kia vehicles surveyed reported no mechanical failures of any type.

lol i am assuming. i dont know anyone who drives a kia. and kia is still crap. out of the 450000 cars it could have only been 10 kias, so sample is distorted. oh and age 3-9years? kias probably last 2 years lol

02-18-2008, 11:07 AM
dude. they're not the car they used to be.

last 2 years? then they'll give you a new one. 10 year, 100,000 mile warrantee.... can't be beat

that being said...i probably won't buy one JUST cuz of the styling and performance. unless they come out with some sports car that is really fun to drive

dude. i think you are confusing them with hyundai. they are owned by teh same people though right?

kia is like the crappy division. thats why they have to offer the 10year warranty otherwise noone would buy it.

hyundai is getting better. the washington post has good reviews, and the new genesis coupe is touted at mustang gt killer. but honda > hyundai

i agree with you, honda > hyundai. that genesis coupe is supposed to be SIIIIICK............
