Figured I would join the thread, I have a 98 Camry that is destined to die.
Long story short is that I got my oil changed, the mechanics fucked up and not my rod bearing is cracked. This just gives me an excuse to get an S13 fastback but now I need to find $7,000 laying around.
I have an I-4 Camry with 121 horsepower and it is good enough. I smoke cars on mountain runs and get alright gas millage. First thing I did as soon as I got off provisional was drive like an asshole and I still do but just barley and smarter about it. You will ADORE good gas millage because I am filling up $60 every week and that is with a family sedan.
