Top-notch Toyota basement
« on: May 27, 2017, 11:24:39 pm »
I don't see this posted elsewhere, though it's about 2 years old.  Rally Celicas in the beginning, many other toys on display.  Toyota Motorsport GmBH (TMG) in Cologne, Germany:

"Chillica" (hadn't heard that before, only SELL-ica vs Se-LEE-ca)

"I mean, it's nice..."

Lots of other quotable quips.

love the description of the Group S MR2
"It's dangerous . . . It has about a 3 second turbo lag, and then, when it comes on power, you don't know if it's gonna understeer, oversteer, or whatever.  It's a bit hairy to drive"

"Alright, alright, alright" that was cool
The comment of the group S MR2 being dangerous ..   :whip:
Reminded me of the gran prix bikes of the same era they were similarly unpredictable and bucked off many riders  :faceslap:
