1985 Toyota Celica

Celica 1985 GT-S is not a car, it's an experience.  
It taught me one of life's most invaluable lessons: that inanimate objects can be loved!  What else can you ask from a car?

I bought it with 180K miles and it still handled like new.  Being incredibly tight around turns it was an answer for those of us who hate slowing down, especially when making a turn.

Three layers of individually inflatable air sections don't just support your back, they treat it like family.

Did I mention the car saved my life by not flipping over when I performed a 360 degree turn on a major highway going 80 m/h?  How many cars care that much?

I know you are not supposed to say bad things about the deceased but for the sake of objectivity: the rear wheel drive and wide tires made winter driving adrenaline rich.  Maybe a little too rich. There I've said it.  Now I will go into my corner and ask for forgiveness.
