Car choices: GTO, GTA or GTR

inspired by an Arsebook linky I get, I wondered if we would like a series of car choices. I'd be very happy to take suggestions in the Cool Wall thread a la "car choices........", and I'll see if this has legs. Would it be better if it was a 2-car choice, or a 3-car "Giant test" like Car magazine used to run (only with random internet idiots voting rather than the likes of John Simister and Gavin Green actually driving them?

Anyway, here's the first: GTO, GTA or GTR? Get voting. Love to understand your thinking too.

With the given choices, will this not just split voters on a generational basis?

over 60s : GTA
over 40s: GTO
children: GT-R

Hmmm, you got me wrong and insulted Jim in one post. God work!

Despite my actual age I'm really 15 and do wear a baseball-style hat, so the GT-R for me all day long.

Much as I like the GTA, the GTO is more my cup of tea. Whilst I'm impressed by the GT-R and what it can do, it doesn't excite me.

No they say you're strange. Not the same thing.

Mind you, I don't mind a good, well-directed insult.

I'm not "over 60" (for...quite a long time) but I'll play to your stereotypes and go GTR. No, GTA. Where are my glasses?

Original GTA is on my list of definite lottery cars...

Never liked the GTR or the GTO really, there are other yank tanks of the era that I'd rather have

The GTO is a measly 3" wider than the S. A bit of a diet might even allow me to get in and out.

Well I'm under 40, and I suspect I'd have the GTA. I might sneak the GTO. I certainly wouldn't have the GTR given that choice..

For looks, worth and flashy posing at classic events, the GTA. For hooning around in (the parts must surely be cheaper than a GTA if you wrecked it!), the GTR.

Sorry GTO, I prefer the Charger...

And for another poll to really confuse people, how about spider vs spider vs spider vs spider? (You could even throw in the eight legged type as a fifth option )

****, How am I supposed to choose?

I'll do it like this.

If I had to have only one car then it would be the Nissan no problem. In fact I'm beginning to think my world car, currently a 911, to be replaced with the Neesan.

However if it is for fun I'm stumped. It won't be the GT-R, because folk I know whom have had them whilst agreeing they are faultless and make even bad drivers look like driving God's they can apparently become a bit tedious, so it's not the Japanese motor.

So is it the lovely Alfa or smooth aggressive stacked headlight GTO? I honestly can't decide. I think the Alfa perhaps just edges it because I love the look of that car (and it's Italian) just slightly more than the GTO.. I think.
**** I don't know, so I'm going to go with the boring Neeeesannn


No I'm not. In the this instance I'm having the Alfa and the Yank. So there

I'm not going anywhere, I'm just going.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
