I’m one of the few that likes the Aztek . The very polarizing is one of its best features (who wants to drive around in the same old bland box?) and the view outside from the interior is pretty cool, with all the glass panels. I’ve always thought of getting one and dropping the Grand Prix GTP drivetrain (or better yet…
THE IDx IS BACK ON THE MENU BOYS
My undoubtedly worthless two-cents: bring back 6-wheelers.
That faded hood is no match for some carbon fauxber veneer!
Well of course you can’t find a “trunk release” button.
I never had access to one called that, just one called Ontarioppo + Quebecoippo (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1758827684389209/?ref=group_header) which doesn’t seem to have much activity (last post was March). However, if you want to be in touch with a lot of the Ontario Oppos, the Driving.ca Backlot group has a…
Very nice! More Canadian Oppos ftw (I’m in NS)! I’ve always liked that generation of Celica....there were never all that many of them around here, but there are even fewer now, so they always give me a smile when I see them - looking good! :)
Another Ontario oppo!
Hey guys! Long time no see! I’ve been meaning to post about the stuff that’s been happening to my car, but sadly life has sort of taken over (especially the trying-to-find-a-job-to-pay-for-college bit, which has hit a dead end as far as I’m concerned).
Hey, parallel parking certain cars is a whole lot harder than doing just about anything else with them.
Because The Morning Sh*t (and The Morning Shift) got so repetitive, I’m trying out a new format – summarizing all major FP articles and stories in one place each afternoon. This form of repetition is pretty much all the mainstream media does anymore, so it must be working. Let me know what you think in the comments or…
“...just tires, final drive ratio, drivetrain efficiency and weight of that drivetrain.”
That’s not a “just” accumulation of factors, especially since you also might have a taller ride height wreaking havoc on aero drag, just as much as all of the factors above wreak havoc on mechanical drag.
That added weight might…
I wouldn’t say it’s impressive. A Malibu gets to 60 mph in 6 seconds and only has 250 hp. That would be 5% of the claimed 5000 hp of this thing. Something running 500 hp should be a bit quicker, right?

The 2000 Celica’s are under-appreciated cars for sure. They look great and have a decent amount of power. The TRD kit is not bad looking either.
The looks on the Celica were in a weird spot for the time it came out but have aged nicely. I think this will only apply to manuals, however
