1973 Toyota Celica ST coupe Review


towing it to the junk yard


rust, looks, mechanicals, you name it


Piece Of Junk — Possibly the worst car I have ever owned - nothing but problems with it, particularly cylinder head. Rust bucket too - literally rusted before my very eyes. Was never so glad to tow a vehicle to the scrap yard. Would be better named coup rather than coupe. Think the ST stands for Shoddy Trash.

Owner for 1 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Five speed transmission layed waste to the competition,  Car was cheap and needed basically nothing. Great for a kid to monkey around with.


Rusting away before my very eyes and Wisconsin salt roads are deadly.  You gotta use your car, but taking across salt death can only last a couple of years.

Not Active

Eraser X — I LOVED this car! was one that had the five speed. All worked beautiful, if it weren't for the rust and ruin. Drove it to Cleveland to Milwaukee many times. Kicked ass!, running faster than any other car with the five speed transmission.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

The Vintage Looks


Fuel Consumption


1973 Celica Gtv — A japanese muscle cars that has a performance better than it's successor. Powerful looks. It has a really needy fuel consumption. Very hard to maintain because of not much garage would take this piece of work. Overall a good car :)

The shape is fab, hate cars on the street that all look the same.


Maintaining such an old car can cost a bit in replacement parts


I Love My Little Red Beast :-) — Love how this car handles. Braking and acceleration is awesome and handles really well. She hasn't needed to much in regards to repairs but has had a lot of replacement parts under the bonnet, but that's to be expected for her age. Exterior body work is still on great condition and the interior is spotless, however if I ever had the money would love to re-do the interior door panels, floors and put a sturdier rear-window parcel shelf in so that I could finally have the 6x9 200W speakers I want. Wouldn't mind putting a sports steering wheel in too, and exchanging the current pedals for racing ones too :-) I love driving this car!!
