Just a minor quibble:

http://www.titanmotorsports.com/200mphcelica.html
This is a full chassis vehicle built by RJ Race Cars. A car like this although looking like a Celica; starts and stops there. A car built from the ground up with all chrome-moly tubing and chassis components to go 6 seconds, over 200 MPH safely is not an easy accomplishment.
Can I get a fiberglass bodykit, chrome-moly tubing and chassis, a one-shot ungodly-hp motor (the locals here call them "Azaleas" - IOW, they bloom once), put a GTO badge on it and call myself the world's fastest GTO?

I mean, I'm sure it's fun to go that fast, but I've gone out for a beer in a daily-driven, street-legal, CARB-legal 8-second WRX (used to claim the title "world's quickest and fastest WRX").

My only problem with that celica, it not a car that some sactioning behind it. Pro Mods have a set of rules to go under one of which is a weight restriction, boost etc. That car could weight 1,000lbs if they wanted to. It has zero in common with a celica. But yes it is impressive they ran a 6.65.
