I think Hotrodding is going to take a new direction. I mean sure theres the usual camaros, mustangs and challengers/chargers. However, I know a few guys that are DEEP into the DSM's (Eagle Talon/Mitsu Eclipse). They're running in the 10s with AWD and these are legit daily drivers.

Also, the Subaro WRX platform, and the Mitsu EVO are serious performers. I believe the V8 RWD thing is going to become more and more of a niche market. As it is, something like 10% of Non-Heavy Duty vehicles are manual gearboxes now.
