Case closed.

I could give a $H17 what others say in other Communities. As long as they keep their thoughts out of our Community, I'm completely happy.

I have a copy of it hanging in my office - because the words have great meaning.........

Enjoy and ignore the haters -- knowing that we just unleashed a BEAST...


The Penalty of Leadership



"In every field of human endeavor, he that is first must perpetually live in the white light of publicity. Whether the leadership be vested in a man or in a manufactured product, emulation and envy are ever at work.

In art, in literature, in music, in industry, the reward and the punishment are always the same. The reward is widespread recognition; the punishment, fierce denial and detraction.

When a man’s work becomes a standard for the whole world, it also becomes a target for the shafts of the envious few. If his work be mediocre, he will be left severely alone - if he achieves a masterpiece, it will set a million tongues a-wagging.

Jealousy does not protrude its forked tongue at the artist who produces a commonplace painting. Whatsoever you write, or paint, or play, or sing, or build, no one will strive to surpass or to slander you unless your work be stamped with the seal of genius.

Long, long after a great work or a good work has been done, those who are disappointed or envious, continue to cry out that it cannot be done.

Spiteful little voices in the domain of art were raised against our own Whistler, long after the big world had acclaimed him its greatest artistic genius.

Multitudes flocked to Bayreuth to worship at the musical shrine of Wagner, while the little group of those whom he had dethroned and displaced argued angrily that he was no musician at all.

The little world continued to protest that Fulton could never build a steamboat, while the big world flocked to the river banks to see his boat steam by.

The leader is assailed because he is a leader, and the effort to equal him is merely added proof of that leadership. Failing to equal or to excel, the follower seeks to depreciate and to destroy - but only confirms once more the superiority of that which he strives to supplant.

There is nothing new in this.

It is as old as the world and as old as human passions - envy, fear, greed, ambition, and the desire to surpass.

And it all avails nothing.

If the leader truly leads, he remains - the leader. Master-poet, master-painter, master-workman, each in his turn is assailed, and each holds his laurels through the ages.

That which is good or great makes itself known, no matter how loud the clamor of denial.

That which deserves to live - lives."
Elvis also had this hanging in his wall or so the story goes. You are in good company.

LOL, Honda guys are funny..

But this guy right here is on a mission... Not sure what his problem is but he must have had a pretty sad childhood or something. He is obsessed with the Z/28.
I even think he is or was a camaro5 forum member.

If that's who I think it is, he was a member and liked manipulating. He's not much welcome anymore.

As long as the hate is outside this Community, I don't really care.

It'd be one thing if the Nurburgring were actually a power track. But anyone remotely familiar with the 'ring understands that it is a handling track above all else. There aren't that many long straights (though there is 1 gigantic one) nor are there many high-speed sweeping turns. So its kinda hard to classify it as a 'power track'

Yeah, THE PILL is completely obsessed with discrediting the Z/28 and every other Camaro. It's too bad words can't fix the fact that GM has spanked Ford, again.

LOL at THE PILL.

ThePill absolutely HATES all things Camaro. He works long and hard to prove just how sh!tty our cars are and how stupid we all are for owning one.

Its like we took his first born or something.

You mean Nitrous Oxide? NOS is a brand, Nitrous Oxide is a oxidizing gas. Not sure anyone uses it over there, we prefer boost.

No, it would have been more impressive with tires Chevy actually plans to sell with the car. JUST barely legal r Comps that you can't get as a dealer option? Meh, not as impressive.

Not nearly as impressive as spending more money on a Camaro than a brand new Stingray Corvette just to go slower anyway.


Most of us in the GDD section do not drive Hondas and we make fun of ricers. The only difference between our little forum and yours is we make fun of all ricers. By "ricer" I mean anyone who holds form over function. We too consider fart cans of obscene size and large spoilers on street cars ridiculous. Just as we also consider V6 Camaro's with bling-tastic wheels, said wheels covered in the cherapest rubber money can buy and European ricer "halo" lights to be rice. Because they do nothing for performance and infact the wrong wheels can even adversely affect performance. Especially when wrapped in Wal-mart grade rubber.

So please come over and visit. Feel free to join the debate. Some of us see it as impressive even with the R comps, especially considering the latter part of that run was in semi-wet coniditions. It's not like the Camaro has the lightweight advantage of the Corvette, the all wheel drive and technobabble wizardry of the GTR or the brute force of a Viper.

Cheers,
