Sometimes, it's easy to forget why we spend so much time on Jalopnik. That's a shame, because for all of us, and probably all of you, it's for one simple reason. We love cars. We really, really do.

It's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind of SUV bashing or hating on other people's cars because they make you jealous. We understand, we do it too. But, sometimes, all of us need to remember why we're here.

Gamjccdad get's it. This is from Ben's Jalopnik Fantasy Garage, Hot Hatch Showdown:

I will have to go with my first car, 1983 VW GTI, black, Gold Enkei Wheels, Kami Air damn, the Recaro striped velor seats, hand crank windows and sunroof. And of course the most important feature, three wheeled turns!!

Ah, yes, memories. After all, what's cooler than hoisting your rear inside Enkei a few inches in the air whilst cornering?
