Sidewaysstarion, there is a question I have been meaning to ask for a long time, have you heard of a car known as a Starion? Just curious of how you got the name.

Re: Train Wreck thread

The Starions had some of the best fenders from the 80s. BMW M3s come to mind as another car with great fenders. They were an angular throwback to the muscle car era. Just needed a V8 rumble to finish the job.

Yep, that's how he got his name...


I had the predecessor to the Starion, and almost bought a Starion after that, in the day.

In the Virgin Islands, I have been sideways a number of times on those winding roads in a Starion. When the back tries to pass the front, we call it fishtail.
