Initial Timing - Changing the Future

Has the time come? Is our world about more than just imports? Should we be looking beyond only what the Asian manufacturers put in our laps? Times have definitely changed. Since several domestic manufacturers decided the import or sport compact performance arena was a lucrative alley into the future and not just the flash in the pan, they have stretched their creative resources to come up with the ultimate option. A platform to compete with and appeal to the performance enthusiast of today, you our readers.

As you all know, 2NR's foundation has been Japanese-oriented platforms since the very beginning. Every car in the staff fleet is an import and every one of us is a diehard import enthusiast that's been involved since the industry's very beginning. There's no chance of us ever "selling out" so to speak and there's nothing we like more than say a Honda or Nissan spanking Detroit iron whether it's at the track or on the street. But, recent additions such as Dodge's impressive SRT-4 and even the SVT Focus, have got us contemplating whether you have any interest in these domestic offerings. Should we test them up against favored imports, feature modified versions and/or the aftermarket support for them, or hell, even just make fun of them. But seriously, as always our quest to provide our readers with an all-encompassing product sends our minds to other planets and the thought has casually come up on several trips. In all honesty, we can't reach a decisive conclusion and thought maybe we should leave it up to you to decide. What would you do? What do you want to see? Is it something we should even be thinking about or are we contemplating a dark alley you don't even wanna go down? Like I said, we're not selling out, that's not our style. We just want to know that we're not leaving you hanging and give you another chance for input into our magazine. So hit us up, send in your thoughts, ideas and of course, your insults to importtuner@mcmullenargus.com or visit us online at www.importuner.com to take part in our reader poll. The craziness is in your hands; we've got a whole new year ahead of us, and you just know it's gonna get crazier.
