My rig (click for full size)


It's a 1991 Celica GT-Four (or Alltrac as you US folks call them ), Group A (Or CS, RC etc) model number 53 of 150 delivered to Australia.
Currently sporting a fully rebuilt engine with TRD forged pistons, ARP rod bolts, shotpeened rods, O-Ringed block, balanced, full Engine Management system, and worn out smoky stock standard turbo

Beautiful car to drive, just holds the road like nothing else, and plenty of power to surprise unsuspecting ricers

Everyone tries to force the merge there so I if I see someone trying to inch forward I always gas it off the line too, I iced him out and made him come to a complete stop. He had to wait there till the five cars behind me went pass, aww poor little ricer, I could hear him gas it after the cars went by, ahh the evocative sound of a 1.6L D16 farting out of a 4in 5Zigen muffler is always so amusing.

Here's mine. Sadly no Volk Wheels, I had a brief stint with a pair of LE37Ts this past August but I needed to sell them to pay some unforseen bills (F****** ***** ). The stock wheels are now back on, along with those fatty Michelins however, my dad said it's my sister's fault that the stock rims are so scratched (Since she trashed them earlier this year when her Camry was in the shop) so I might be getting some new wheels soon. Though they probably won't be as nice as the Volks, anything is better than the clunkers that are on it right now.
No kidding; I have trouble keeping up with my friend's '02 EX whenever he goes out in it and I'm driving my mom's '00 Civic. On the highway, I have to floor the poor D16 whenever I want to pass, and keeping a speed of about 120-140 km/h needs about 3.5K RPM or so - not to mention the super-light nature of the Civic's steering at that speed! Definitely not a car that is well-suited to long-distance traveling at high speeds. The Odyssey, on the other hand, is a champ at road-trips. Very comfortable during the summer, when we went out to Vancouver Island, and the Sunshine Coast. The Interior posed no challenge as well, and everything was smooth sailing.

A shame about the wheels; they were awesome-looking. I'm probably not going to be able to convince my dad to get those put on the Odyssey, so I'll just have to get my own car first. I'm looking at either an SC400 or the 2nd gen MR2... I need to save up the cash first without blowing it on a L300/DHA3000 combo first.

Head-fi's making it quite hard, though.

Actually many 5-6 year old cars here have 80-100k miles on them.

Roastpuff, I've seen VIP style SC300/400s and they look killer. Buy one with an oxidized paint job (No rust though) to save money then slap on a Wald body kit, new wheels, and new paint. You'll have one sweet looking ride.

Amen! I'm so going to try and find one with the Onyx Black paint, but I'm most likely going to have to import from the US because pickings are slim for SC400's in Canada. I'm trying to save up so that I can get the car AND mod it in one fell swoop.

Something like this guy's SC is my goal. It's so incredibly slick!

Anyone know what is required to import the SC400 into Canada? I know it's on the approved list, but what would I need to do? New bumpers, new speedometers with km/h instead of mp/h?

No offense to mini van drivers, but something screams at me that it should be filled with kids and car seats.

Last time I rented one, half my friends wanted me help them move stuff. I almost killed someone because I am used to 4 seaters and 2 seaters, not 8 seaters and 12 seaters.

You know, like the VW peace wagon...I am sure it is VERY safe and powerful but when you are used to driving cars and all of a sudden get seated behind a party wagon, you kinda lose control.

I can't even drive a SUV! I like little Mazdas. I rented a Mazda 3 and as soon as I sat behind the wheel and started driving I was singing "zoom...zoom...zoom." Mazdas are fun. Try the RX8?

Enough with cars, I will take a Segway anyday!

while you are at it, make sure to take the 3D tour!

Sense of impending doom, much?

Please don't compare the Odyssey to the VW Eurovan/Peacewagen, they are very different cars. For one thing, the Odyssey drives more like a tall and long Honda Accord, with pretty good sightlines and HUGE rear-view mirrors (at least on the 06+ models) that allow you to see where you're backing up to easily. The brakes are really great, very powerful for stopping in a hurry, and the driving dynamics are pure Honda - a joy to drive. So far, so good... no one's asked me to move anything, though bikes and sports gear gets in there often.

And I don't really think that the Eurovan is all that safe, or powerful. In fact, the only real use for it is the Westfalia conversion, IMO.

EDIT: Segways are cool, but I don't think they'll be much good on the freeway. Around campus, on the other hand...

Thaddy,

Nope not a daily driver at all. Matter of fact I refer to it as my "retirement sled" which I picked up a wee bit early. I drove 2 seaters from BMW, MB, Porsche, Audi, etc in 2003 but found this to be the most fun (but still providing the level and balance of performance I wanted) with the Boxster S coming in second. Granted some of those cars have been improved since to include bigger motors but I remain quite happy. I've had sports jobs on and off my entire life starting with a '58 TR3A we punched out to 150 inches and fitted with twin Webber sidedrafts. That was well over 40 years ago

Actually it isn't as bad as one might think. We're not "Northern Tier" and are often said to be in a "banana belt" in the shadows of Mt. Rushmore. We're semi-arid with less than 17 inches of rain and 37 inches of snow per year. I usually have it on the road between April and November. I've taken a couple 4k road trips with it too and have found it comfortable and a great deal of fun.

Sounds like the Wx here today which hit 74. Of course humidity is never an issue around here.

Mine is a 2003 which was the last of the 2 liter 9,000rpm engines. Only have 13k miles on it at this point.

I'm still not sure what to think about the minor styling changes made on the newer model like yours. Regardless the S2K is a reliable and very enjoyable sports car

Recently I put in driving lights so it looks slightly different. I also replaced the cap and rotor, which were apparantly bad because the car is a lot quicker now. I would have a ported and polished intake manifold but USPS seems to have lost it .

now don't tell me you were shopping for a sports car and didn't at least give the miata a whirl? Personally I like it a lot more than an s2000. Alas I can afford neither so I get my weekend fun from my motorcycle.
