1995 celica to 1995 civic?

Ok, this little punk down the street says that the new celica would kick my 95 civic's butt. I agreed. But could a 1995 celica beat a 1995 civic? both the top models of course. My civic is a Vtec-EX coupe. 130 hp. Not sure on the celica. But I sure would like to race this punk, even in his 2002 celica. So whatcha think?

Well if you were to race him in his 2002 celica all i can say is you're in for a good ol' spanking. A friend of mine has a 2001 celica and that thing can move. But a 1995 celica?, I donno. I know they weren't that fast back then, but I say find one and race it... 8)

95's had the 2.0 liters, the 4cyl camary engines.. i think they were around 140HP.. i think a 95 would take you.. its got more torque... but there is only one way to find out..

What trim lvl is the old Celica? If it's GTS or GT4 you might be in trouble

The Honda would spank the old Celica's ass, of course!

Actually the celica has 2 different motors. One (in the ST) has a 1.6 liter 7afe motor and is slow as a snail (Iknow this cause I own one) and the other is the GT version and it has 2.2 litre 5sfe motor which is the same as the MR2 NA. Ive never owned a Civic but Ihave owned the MR2 and the Celica. I used to eat up civics all day long in my MR2 NA. So if your friend has the GT version you will lose but if he has the ST version you might have a chance.

If your friend has a '95 Celica GT4, then believe me, your screwed and don't even try. Its got a 3SGTE engine, all-wheel-drive, and turbo. Your Civic won't stand up to that.

News flash guys. He asked the question over 19 months ago and hasn't come back. I don't think he cares, how about you? 8O

Depends on the driver

i have a 95 Civic DX (102hp)one of my friends has a 90 Celica GT-S HB(130). My car keeps us with him ive beating him on takeoff but he catches up i acn barely win and theres a difference of 28hp. the 95 civic ex versus a 95 celica gt is a good match because it would all depend on the drivers. weight is very important to.a civic ex will win!!!
