o thats wat i thought but i dont know i mean this looked older than a 2000! prob. a 2002! so maybe there is a diff. i dont know but a 13.9 is really fast for a GT!!

No way. You should have laughed in his face. Try maybe 14s with those mods. those cars look faster than they are. They have zero balls and struggle through the 1/4 mile.

in their yr. 2000 annual tests summary, road and track has the stock Celica GT-S listed :
I-4, 180 bhp., 6.8 0-60sec., 15.4 1/4 mile @91.5 mph, 134 top speed.
so with mods and such, one can only go....hmmm.

and for what it's worth- Toyota recently announced that they will no longer be manufacturing the Celica nor the MR2 Spyder after their '05 model runs.

um.... ppl read what he said GT NOT GTS... the fastest NA GT that ANY of my celica friends (MODERATORS on celica sites) know of is running high 14s with MAJOR work done... IE P&P of head and intake, cams, headers, NO exhaust... those type of things... If its the new body style I call TOTAL BS. Hes on the bottle or turbo or hes a liar.

One thing I have noticed from these "ricers" is they all say they run 13s because that's a respectable number and at the same time not so far fetched like 12s. 14s is nothing to brag about, so 13.9 it is.

It's like the cop asking you how many beers you had. Standard answer: "A couple."

Smart answer vegas and you are right i believe.

Next time someone says they run high 13's like a 13.9 ask them what their trap speed was because around 96.5-97.5 is where they will be or they are BSing.

gts can hit 13s with work but not stock... also he is listing 15 second MAYBE 14second cars on his kill list... how about some 350z's or a few srt-4s hes killed? those are low 14second cars if he can brag about racing them I am impressed. Otherwise I call BS... not in a gt N/A no way.
