I'm now debating whether to get a celica or supra (non turbo)
but i cant find any performance figures for the non turbo supras, i know the supra has the rwd factor, but what do you guys think would be better? 4-6gen celica
or 88-92 supra non turbo?

I'd go for an N.A Supra over a Celica any day because I enjoy RWD and the build quality of the Supra. I own an 88 n/a Supra and my sister has a '91 Celica st. After driving both, I can safely say the Supra is built a lot tougher and just feels better inside and out. There are also much more aftermarket support for the Supra than there is the Celica.

Eddie, you can't just kill someone b/c of the way they looked at you.

Since we are talking about NAs here:

86-92 RX7 GTU, GXL, or (the best) GTUs

will run about the same times as a mkiii n/a, except smaller, lighter

160 hp, so youve got more than a celica, but sadly less than a mkiii

awsomely short throw on the shifter, so that beats the piss out of truck sticks on celicas and supras

rwd

NO PISTONS!

Although the 5th gen my sister has is fun to drive (I stole it a few times and cruised around in it) I was apalled by the inferior build quality of it compared to my Supra and my Dad's Solara. It just felt cheap inside and out. When they were new, Supras cost anywhere between 20-30 thousand dollars.
