Hehe, yeah, not too many Camry track days or show-and-shines. Uh oh, story time. A couple weeks ago there was another local autocross. I did pretty well, improved throughout the day. Anyway, there was a guy there with a ~'95 Camry. When they were doing the tech inspections, the inspector asked the guy, "Hey, does your mom know you borrowed the car?" We were cracking up... Anyway, this thing is an auto, totally stock, and he's whipping it around the track, the thing lifted the inside rear tire in a couple places - not really due to impressive grip, but impressive body roll, but hey. There was also an older Volvo 240DL and a '93ish Beretta. The 240 was on par with the Camry, but the Beretta was running even with me!!! Good driver, my FTD was barely better than his. I have some practice to do...

But then again, I've never heard a Camry owner talk about gaining half a second through the esses at Road Atlanta either. It's all in what you want from a car.
