I'm not a fan of blowing for a long time anyways ; )
I think it's a great idea in a "Who's car belongs to who" kind of aspect. It would encourage people to start a build thread, so the picture has something to link to.Rating isn't really needed, if you think it's a nice car, tell the guy
What about Facebook style "like" button, which you could sort on by number of "likes"
i don't know why you would want to say its an sti, especially around people that know what they are looking at. like buddy, its a wrx, who cares. personally i find it insulting that he calls it an sti
