Buddy of mine called me today with the news that he just picked up a new ride. He called me on the way over from his house to show it off. I of course was thinking 04 Cobra or Z06 but didn't think he had the funds to swing that. My next idea was that he might of gotten a new SRT-4 to play with. I had never even heard of one of these new Ion coupes.

So, the car had a little over 2K on the counter already and one oil change under his belt so I thought we would go out looking for some action this Saturday. Streets were suprisingly dead but we did manage to stir up some action with what appeared to be an 03 and up GT-S. It had the darker tailights and the larger scoop on the front fascia as well.

Mods to the Ion are....none, yet.

Mods to the GT-S was at minimum...cat back, cold-air, some gauges (monster tach), and Volk's rims.

Needless to say, I thought my buddy had bitten off a little more than he could chew his first time out because the Celica sounded a little mean and he was alone while I, over 230, was in the car with my buddy.

We ran twice with my buddy coming out on top both times by about a car length and a half. Both cars seemed to launch equally and the Celica driver was landing lift, good shifting, on every shift. I was shocked, little Ion can run.

I am shocked how fast that Saturn is. I think mid 14s at 95MPH in good air might be attainable...
