You have F&F to thank for that...
Also, driving most Toyotas yields an experience more boring than watching paint dry.
Most Hondas at least have a decent fun-to-drive demeanor...

out of the two I've driven, only one sucked.

I drove about an '04 echo, and that thing was a major POS, and then I drove my grandmas V6 camry from 02. while it was an automatic, it had pretty good handling, especially for a FWD which I despise so much in most cars.

I have three words for you. ST165, ST185, and ST205. ;P

Though, I will admit there are more '03 Priuses on the road in the US than either of those cars in the entire world after thirteen years of production.

My buddy and i had a street race once:


It was a warm summer evening with a nice cool breeze. A sleek silver nissan 300zx TT with teh top down pulls up to the red light. then a white 06 corolla. they rev. There were about 10 teens standing at the light. the light turns green. the rolla punches it. the sexy owner of the zx drops the clutch at 3000rpm. the wheels spin in a show of smoke. the z sits there for 2-3 seconds as the rolla tears down the street (well... realistically waddles down the street) the z stops on spot. the owner of the z hears "dude that 300 just got beat by a corolla!" the smoke clears. everyone is laughing... except one, cute blond. the owner of teh z make eye contact with her. she sheepishly smiles. the z owner winks and peels out with a stylish fishtail.




damn i miss the summer.

Camry has good handling? No wonder why it's the best seller in America.

it really did. I didn't drive it very hard, but it was definitely the best FWD car I've ever driven.

Why? Because we aren't entitled to have some fun? How'd you like it if I was rich and had a Gallardo and said that those Montego guys race their cars? lol thats so crappy and stupid? loloololol! :x


+1

Don't hate on racing with slow cars. I've had a lot of fun racing my friend's Hyundai Elantra wagon with my Prizm. We know our cars aren't fast, but it's still fun because it's a close race.

Hey ya'll foos.
I have a Corolla... I know it's got absolutely no guts compared to the bigger guys but I love my car. It's a standard. It's old. It's clean. It's got alot of character (driving-wise). And it's a helluvalot more fun to drive than any other car Ive driven.
Quit hatin on Yotas!
I'm gonna keep my car until it absolutely will not run anymore. Until it simply falls apart (if it ever does). Should the motor crap out at say 350,000 miles I'll put another one in :D. Transmission problems? You know what I'll do.

I love my Toyota.

I certainly will get other cars throughout my life, but I will always have my Toyota parked in her little spot waiting to be driven.

Anyway, I had to defend my car!
