Is that an SS? I wouldn't call that a downgrade at all. Some people prefer speed to handling and a camaro SS compared to a celica is like a celica compared to a civic dx when comparing speeds. :) Its just a matter of preference.

Wiseman probably drove a 17 second car. :D

The car is good for drag racing, which is what 90% of the people on the celica boards do. And our car is not a drag car. Most of the racing that goes on around here is just a measure of straightline speed. I'm not saying that I'd drive a camaro, but theres no need to hate on him for getting one. And if he was driving a GT previously (not sure what he had before), i'd call it a serious upgrade. :D Jk.

Nice car man.
those cars can be hella fast with a fraction of a cost that is would take the celica to be fast.
Plus he gets that deep throaty sound from the V8!
but yeah only thing I don't like about it is when you drive and need to pull out of a blind corner your nose sticks out too much!!!!!!!

Well I guess thanks for the um.. I don't know..

To those that like it thanks..

Handling.. well it handles pretty damn good considering the fact that I don't plan to be doing Auto-X anytime soon... lmao

Here is some interesting reading for those of you that like the F-body car, this may drop your jaw.

Sorry guys, the celica was a good car.. fun to drive, handled great and had great gas milage, but I missed the power and this is a dream car of mine.. the last year they made the Camaro.. not to mention an SS. All in all I love the way this car looks, runs, handles, sounds, and turns heads.

Plus I love the sound of these cars and the fact that I can spin those fat 275/40/17 tires in 3rd gear... sorry this was just a fun factor =)

Jonasblack, you are right haha still getting used to the front end =)

Thanks again Jonasblack, Redline, cool2miketlu(your cars still awesome!), aZnTrD2k, and skamikaze.
