    Pretty cool little car. Not Euro (wrong forum, lol), but I'd rock it.

    Of all the things said about Jay Leno... he knows his shit inside and out and is interested in a wide variety of *anything* that moves really.

    You have to give him credit, he really is the definition of an enthusiast of all things automobile.

    Goddamn that's a small car. Roller-bearing crank? That's cool. 9500rpm redline? Crazy, just crazy.

    Man, it woulda been fun to have lived in Japan in the 60's, except I'd be 50-something now.

    Roller bearing cams have been a racing trick in small blocks for years. Doesn't last as long but it works well for the purpose.

    I bet if they could make roller bearings strong enough to stand up to the torque of a modern I4 or V6, they could increase gas mileage substantially on almost every car currently in production.
