Default Toyota Camry Wins COTY from Motor Trend...

The new Toyota Camry wins the Golden Calipers from Motor Trend. At first I yelled at the magazine for being biased. Then I decided to read it. Then I yelled "biased" still, then I read it some more and I now understand why they voted it COTY. Now I want one.

A Camry SE with the optional 3.5 (268 hp for you fellas) can run to 60 in 6.1 seconds and finishes the quarter mile in 14.5 sec at 97.5 while achieving 31 mpg on junk gas. The Camry looks very NICE in silver with the SE trim.

Man, I want one now...Who cares if everyone has a Camry, it'* fast!

And in the great words of Lash...

"Discuss among yourselves!"

I'm gonna have to agree with ya. I just don't feel "right" buying a japanese car, nor the german car I have. I like my pushrod, iron block/head engines.
