Just came back from lunch driving in Hackensack (yuk)while leaving garden state plaza I see a silver celica GT waiting at a light. The lane goes from 2 to 1 in 1500 feet so I thought nothing of it until this 30 something in the silver GT started rocking back and forth and revving. I look over it's this italian looking guy who is giving me the "you better not think of getting in front of me look". Naturally I assume racing mode and when the light turns green we go nose to nose till 40 and then I start pulling hard on him. I take the lane by 11/2 car lengths (just mashed the gas) and the guy is on my ass cursing me out LOL. Next light he decides to make the left hand turn lane a strait lane and he comes up next to me and rolls the window down. I expected curses and threats instead he says "OK what's the secret?" I told him "nothing man, bone stock" he says "Bull****" and goes to spit on my car but gets more on his passenger door. He revvs up and launches at the light, I just let him go. Man, do you IS300 guys get this? I wanted to go beat his ass soo badly but since I work with attorneys I know better.

You sure it was a GT? Maybe it was a GT-S? A GT has a n/a 1.8L VVTi 16 valve 4cyl with 140hp (125lb-ft.). The GT-S has a n/a 1.8L VVTLi 16 valve 4cyl with 180hp (130lb-ft.) You have a CL-s rite? If you have the DVD nav, did anyone ever figure out how or if a NTSC signal can be seen on the screen? (ie DVD movie)

Hey DJ that had to be a GTS man. I just spoke to a guy in my office that raced one and he said a GT would never put up that much of a fight. Come to think of it I think it was a GTS. Funny enough the prick who spit at me works next door according to people here. Since this is my last day on this project I am tempted to go leave a luggi on his window.............. hmmm, temptation........

Hmmm, never knew how to spell "luggi." Are you sure that's not a type of pasta? I've got a cold right now, could probably bring up a lung for you to heave at that ape

That's what I thought. A GT wouldn't have performed like that unless you had your e-brake on by accident. Anyways, him spitting at your car is just plain wrong. But 2 wrongs don't make a right, so just go flip up his wipers or something. Or confront him, make him spit on you and then beat him down... hehe (kidding)
