..if everything goes through as planned i might be picking this up today... Nice - hope yer not gonna get rid of yer vert, though.... And if you pick up the Honda, please don't do what some local fool did to his - he put one of those big-arse park-bench ricer wings on it and ruined the looks of a nice looking car :ugh: ....some people :rolleyes:

Bong.. I was tempted about a year ago to sell my Celica and get an S2000.. still would really love to honestly! I am very tempted, RWD and put a Supercharger on it with a WTA IC.. would be a great fun 320whp ride! If that is what you do, I can't blame you.. I had even posted my celica up for sale, I was very close to doing it but just didn't have the heart to let mine go (doh.. now I have clutch issues too hahaha).

Good luck!

I love a manual rwd, so much fun to control the ass end :D And it's ok to fall in love with another, as long as you still love the one you have now, I mean I have 3 freakin cars....well 2 and a truck, but not tryin to get technical here lol I would still go for more if I had my own place to put them....

I love S2000's, but as long as you're still going to own that vert' im fine with it. ;)

As of now, they have the most HP (241) out of a 4 cylinder N/A. Oh and you better get a manual one for sure.

There are no automatic S2000's. They are true sports cars. :bigthumbu

To the OP: good choice. With some coilovers and sticky tires s2k's are really hard to catch on a road course.

Ahh like the pontiac solstice, those are a fun ass car to drive and a good amount of pep for a 4 banger. I got to drive an S2000 once as well but unfortunately that was only to pull it in a show room :(

they make auto solstices.. and the 170HP 2.4 in those cars is a dog... feels so brash and badly put together.... now the 2.0 turbos on the other hand are quite possibly gods gift to GM

celicaGT90_05
06-24-2007, 03:38 AM
like I said they are decent, but they did make auto solstices? I've never seen one and have been told they are all manual

i drove the first one on my dealer's lot back when they came out... it was a manual but they told me that a doctor in the area was waiting on and auto one for his daughter... i believe all the GXP/Redline models of the Delta platform are manual... but the standard cars can be had in auto or manual... atleast according to my dealer

I drove a solstice back when I worked at a dealership and my boss told me they were all manual, and I've not seen an auto so I dont know, I do like them though. What motor are they running in the GXP? I heard they were gonna come out with an LS1 model solstice

06-25-2007, 07:39 PM
I'm also curious to hear how it compares to the vert!

burnyd
06-25-2007, 08:13 PM
Cool car.. there really well put together.. .so whats happening with the vert for sale now?

bongbbreakin
06-25-2007, 09:12 PM
sorry boys the car is not for sale or not being parted out, for some reason the insurance on all the cars in the family is the same exact cost with the ap1 included too....hmmm :woot2:

as far as comparing both of them, the s2k isn't as fast as the swapped convertible but the ap1 is much for baller status and much more cleaner and drives so much smoother. the celica is rough makes noises, squeeks and creeks, and is a rough ride. more people know the s2k then a swapped celica,... the s2k body is immaculate. drivability and reliability = ap1>st-184 speed and torque = ap1<st-184

celicaGT90_05
06-25-2007, 09:22 PM
are you saying you decided not to part out or sell the celica? Well anyway I like that S-2000! Really like the read leather, but not the red carpeting, though I could make it through with that if I had the car lol

nice dude! So nice you posted it twice!:)

Cavanagh
06-25-2007, 11:38 PM
Yay! So your keeping the Vert? Good Shit. The only thing that bugs me are those tachs since (to me) it seems like they would lag or somthing. I dont know i guess i got to try it. Love the white with black hardtop!

06-26-2007, 03:33 AM
I was driving one almost exactly like that last week. It was the same exterior but had black leather instead of red. They are a lovely car. Nice choice with the white by the way. I was also driving a mint 89' RX-7 GXL with only 30 000 on the clock. Two very nice cars. I'm not sure which I'd rather have.

celicaGT90_05
06-26-2007, 03:36 AM
I almost bought I believe it was either an 86 or 88 RX-7 for $2g about 2 years back. I would have loved having it but I later found out they get bad gas mileage, but oh well I just made it a plan to get one later on

Yeah nice car, I like the S2000's in Red or Black though.

burnyd
06-26-2007, 04:06 AM
I think that thing might be able to get Grumpy laid.. now thats saying alot...

But anyways, Im hoping your plans are to put that s/c on it and aftercooler and let that thing rip.... the stock motor is good for 500hp which is just plain retarded for a unopened motor especially a 4cly.

Nice ride. I hadn't seen one it white before. Looks good, especially with the black hardtop. Mod red interior is pretty cool.

Have fun with it. Watch out for the off throttle oversteer, while turning in the lower gears, at higher rpms... They snap spin fast!

celicatrd93
06-29-2007, 04:46 PM
you bastard, you left the poor celica outside, in the rain its crying its 3sgte heart out. :laugh: just playin, i see you already started the modifications already. nice lip. nice and clean. keep us updated with anything else.

I'd trade in my Celica for an S2000 anyday, if only I had the funds. Great purchase, get some videos up of that VTEC-goodness! :D
