The Cressida was fast because it had the 7M-GE engine which was also in the Supras and also had the 7M-GTE turbo version for even more yeeehas. Didn't you just love the sound/feel of the inline 6? I wish more automakers made them. Right now GM makes a really nice one, the 4.2 Vortec, but the only put it in the Trailblazer/Envoy. Why can't they just shove it in a Solstice? 291hp inline 6 in a car weighing that little, I'd be in line.

That is very true Adam, that 333hp screamer is one of my most favorite engines. I'll take the 6 speed manual though, SMG is for sissies.

The S was a great car...only had it for a year. I didn't get to drive it much so I figured I'd sell it and break even before I had to fix anything.

I had a '00 ZX3 before my '02 SVT...
Before that, an Isuzu I-Mark turbo hatchback, with 'Lotus Handling'
I loved that car!
