The First (of Many) Dream Garage Threads: Sub 2.0 Liters in The Lounge Posted March 18, 2016 Long time no see, C&G community! Lots of names I don't recognize, some I do... I pop in from time to time to see what's going on, and always enjoy the Week in Review emails (keep it up, Drew!). Anyway, I just had to chime in on this thread. Love this topic considering I've owned my fair share of 2.0L cars in the last decade (although I guess only one of them counts): '06 Cobalt SS/SC, '04 Neon R/T (eventually converted to a 2.4T), '11 Cruze 1.4T (wife's car - oh hey, I'm married now!), and '13 Focus ST (current DD). 1. DD: Fiesta ST3 (1.6T FWD) 2. Family: Ford Fusion (1.5T FWD) 3. Utility: '17 Ford Escape (1.5T AWD if available) 4. Fun: 3rd Gen (FD) Mazda RX-7 (1.3L TT RWD) 5. Crazy: Radical SR3 RSX (1.5L RWD) ...do I show a bias? For my last pick, I was actually looking for something more along the lines of the '99 Eclipse GSX (compact turbo AWD fun) but came up with nothing exciting. So I looked into fun conversion options (Aventador-kitted Fiero with AWD and TT conversion, anyone? - meh, base engine is >2.0 so I rejected it). When that failed, I looked into track options. I could've also went with the Lotus Elise Cup R or 250. But I went with a more unique option because... why not? Cheers!
