    Tacoma Hooters Greet & Meet

    A few of us local WA. drivers met up @ Hooters in Tacoma to officially meet each other, some already knew of others but some of us are new to the group and was a great way to have introductions. It was a great night filled with information, jokes, current build idea's and just having a lot of positive attitude and excitement made this night a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone that showed up @Badfish69, @Craig & Spencer F. and @T.Love

    Nice.

    I think the stock wheels are underrated. They're pretty nice looking after having aftermarket ones on mine for the last 2 years.

    I was just thinking the other day that Kia did a pretty good job with their first 'hot hatch' in giving it some performance but also the styling cues with it. I've been watching a lot of videos on the Renault Clio RS and I really see a lot of similarities between the two cars; so much so, I want to use some of its bits on our car.

    It will take forever for cute European cars to be "acceptable" in the US. Somehow Canadian market is much more interested in small hatch style than US is. Forte sells much better there. Rondo was scrapped off in the US. Elantra is also a great seller in Canada.
    KIA Monthly sales - Page 41 - Kia Forum
    For the first time this year Forte was selling better than Sorento... yet still, Sorento and Optima are very close.

    Renault, Peugeot, Ford (Escort), Fiat (Punto), and others... lots to choose from in Europe.
    Drives:
    2019 Chevrolet Bolt
    2015 AUDI Q5 (for wife...)
    Previous:
    2016 KIA Forte5 SX 1.6 T-GDI, A/T (for sale some remaining aftermarket parts - see SALE forum)
    2014 FIAT 500e (my first EV - awesome toy!!)
    2015 KIA Forte5 SX 1.6 T-GDI, M/T
    2016 FIAT 500X Trekking Plus AWD (for wife)
    and many others like: Dodge Intrepid, Kia Rondo, Fiat 126p, Trabant 1.1...

    We Canadians do love our hatchbacks although it mystifies me why they didn't bring over the 3 door Fiesta ST, Civic Type R, et al. Even in regions where the Kia Pro Ceed sells there's a 3 door version. We have the Rondo redesigned released here and Nissan also brought out the Nissan Micra a few years ago. If Nissan/Renault can slap the Juke RS/Nismo engine in a Nismo version of the Micra, that would be hilariously fun. I wouldn't be surprised if the Micra shared platform with the Clio. I use to have a Toyota Echo before they became known as the Yaris and that thing was probably 2500lb with only a 1.5litre NA and 107HP, it was a fun little car. Sure it swayed like crazy in cross winds but yeah, wished a manufacturer would bring out some really light weight hot hatches like this Clio RS. I'm hoping Hyundai will see it worth their while to bring out their i20 which I guess is the Accent hatchback with the N treatment.
