This seems to have been quoted eighty-two times, but this is the oldest one that shows up:

Quote:
VTEC is NOT "V-tec", "V-TEC", "V-tech", "V-TECH", "VTECH", "V-TEK", "vtech", "vtec", "vortech", "Vtec", or "Vtech". It's CAPITAL VTEC. No dashes, no lower case, no extra letters, no anything other than the correct and only spelling of VTEC. If you cannot respect the technology and simply use the correct spelling, you do not deserve what it gives you.
I remember a rant a very long time ago about people putting VTEC (or some variation thereof) decals on their cars, as well as "Type R" and "Spyder"

I doubt that anyone has ever installed one of these in their cars:


Or a cheap cordless phone, although it would be easier than an engine swap.

Spyder is interesting. "So, you are saying that this car is a convertible?"
