My First Car — My 1977 Toyota Celica GT Liftback was my first car at 16 years old. I drove it for 8 years and it was a great car. It put up with my couple of fender benders and survived my brother putting it into a wall too. The car ran and ran....the minuses as I pointed out that for todays market it is pretty powerless. I had it running sans cat converter, smog pump and used a super wide exhaust. This was before bi-annual smog testing, well it took the car for a 105 MPH top end to 125 MPH top end. I sold it in 1984 in favor of the 300ZX I bought. This was aferall the "poor mans" Z Car. I wish to heck I had some pictures of her to put up, I also looked to buy one just for the heck of it but good luck finding one that isn't a rust bucket.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap to run, great styling for the day, reliable as can be, and easy to work on

Cons: Before power windows, doors etc were available on cars like these, weak engine clogged up by smog equipment

Bad Experience — I owned three Toyota Celicas, all 1977 and '78 models, back in the mid-80's, and all three were lemons. One problem after another. I'll never but another Toyota, unless maybe a pick-up truck. The trucks are supposed to be good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of power, sporty look

Cons: mechanical problems

Fantastic Car! — I've owned this car since it was new in 1977 and I have always loved it. There are very few around anymore. I always liked the styling which is similar to the fastback Mustang. This car is all original except for the aluminum rim upgrade that I switched from a 1979 Toyota Celica coupe that I also owned.

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

Pros: one of the best cars ever made!

Cons: gas mileage is not the best

Overall Great Car Never Had A Problem Exept From The Ciggerette Lighter — the 5th best car ever. got to love the mini mustangs. it is only a four but it still goes hard for a four, they have alot of potential going for them, classic not plastic, so if you want fun good looks or a project car this would be great car for it.

Pros: good looking ride, fun to drive.

Cons: old wiring can cuase alot of problems

Perfect For Drifting Or Racing — Being as old as this car is it was destined to need repairs but Toyota put super stock suspension on it including a rear end equivalent to that of fords 9 inch rear ends the only problem is the bushings need to be replaced with polyurethane to make it worthy of rally racing

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

Pros: Any Toyota or Lexus Performance can be equipped

Cons: Can't find any parts for it

Fun Old Car — This was my first car (well the photo isn't what I had, mine was a rust bucket). I got it as a graduation gift (I think the people that gave it to me just didn't know what to do with it anymore). It got me around for a year or so before I knew it was time to move on. I think what tipped me off about having to get something else was the time I had a flat and went to jack the car up, and the jack punched through the rusted out frame.

Pros: Reliable, even when all rusted out

Cons: I don't know what kind of metal this car was made of, but it sure didn't react well to minnesota winters.
