    back when they drove real cars. Once upon a time you could go to the dealer and buy more or less the same hemi Charger that they were running on the racetrack.

    Please tell me where I'd go today to buy a rear-drive V8 powered Toyota Camry.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!

      To your nearest Lexus dealer.

        and while I'm not really a fan of either, there is a difference between a Lexus and a Toyota.

        Other than the low-end Lexus ES, I don't think any of them share a common platform with a Camry.

        •  You are right. (0+ / 0-)

          My reply was bit tongue in cheek.  

          Also, the ES is actually on an Avalon platform now, not a Camry, so nothing in the Lexus line-up currently uses the Camry as a base.
