My First Car — There's nothing like your first car. It was sporty and fun to drive. Also very reliable and good on gas. I loved the way those raised white letter Goodyear's looked! I still think of it and miss it to this day.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Just a cool little car.  Great styling and had a lot of standard equipment that was optional on other cars.  Very sturdy and reliable.

Cons: Black vinyl interior with no A/C, but what did I care? I was young.

Good Car — I was 20 years old on January 29, 1976, when I bought Car, a brand new red Celica GT for $5,400, including tax. I'm now 53 and in the ensuing 33 years have moved 14 times, had 9 jobs, owned 4 Volvos, lived with 3 meaningful men and had 1 baby girl who came home from UCSF in Car 17 years ago. Three of my houses burned, almost all of my employers went out of business, 2 men left and my husband died January 29, 2005, on Cars' 29th birthday. My daughter, my red 2006 Volvo T5 and Car are all that is left and are still going strong. They say you don't plant a chestnut tree for yourself, but for your grandchildren. I think I bought Car for mine.

Pros: After 33 years, it always starts and is still beautiful

Cons: People steal the hub covers

I Have Always Liked The Celica. — This one belonged to two of my friends before me. It was undewr a grand, $800 I think. It had high mileage, and would have kept going I think, And then there was this telephone pole. Bad driving, really bad that day.

Pros: It performed well.

Cons: By the time I got it, the paint was fading, that's about it.

My First Car, And Truly Deserving Of Staying In The Memory Forever — My blue 1976 Celica LT2000 coupe was my first car and never let me down once. Built back in the day when style wasn't a dirty word at Toyota, "Eva" was a beauty whose performance didn't quite live up to her appearance (like most Celicas) but was still able to get me up to 170 km/h on 1 or 2 occasions. Survived being rear-ended at low speed thanks to chrome bumpers. 5 speed manual gearbox was pretty good for a car bult in the mid-70s - it's still as many gears as you need. Ah, you never forget your first.

Pros: Great metallic blue respray mean she looked great, especially with all side windows wound down to reveal B-pillarless profile.  Toyota reliability - without the brain-numbing boringness of Toyota's current design philosophy.

Cons: No air conditining, original "stereo" was a radio only, vinyl upholstery got a bit toasty during summer.

Great First Car — solid, reliable first car that was easy to work on regarding repairs. Susceptable to rust in the pillars. Sports exhaust system made her sound good and a bit more economical.

Pros: Easy to maintain

Cons: Slow as a wet week.
