^probably on its fifth V6^

Anyway, I thought it was given to Per as a going away present?

It's gonna be oil-starved with the front wheels turned like that!

The heavy rear downforce raises the front end to keep better oil circulation.

My first thought when I saw the thread title, before I clicked the link, was, "How did anyone possibly spot that thing?"

God I'm too nerdy, the wing and the wheels are clones of what was on the FF1 Talon/Eclipse... as is the color.

Well, you're in good(?) company, that was my first thought too.

I'd love to see GRM making a Puerto-Miami style turbo tercel in an equally neon shade of green. At least for an April Fools project.

Yea but didn't you notice he authored the latest article about the Camry?

He did so before he left. The stories are many times about 3 months behind (depending on how much room is available in the mag, etc)

Nope, as soon as the guy hit 10mph all that downforce lifted the front, the tires spun and it reved to 1,032 rpm and spun it's bearings, that's why it's parked.

I see turds like that every day on my commute. There is an all purple Camry of similar vintage that is just spectacular.
