1979 Ra40 Toyota Celica — Handles well for a 1979 car, has very stiff suspension. Needs more power has another engine from a newer celica, but still needs more has seats from newer Celica too Fun car to drive Has a GT grill which could be worth more than the car

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

Pros: handels very well

Cons: not enough power

Fun While It Lasted — The 1979 Toyota Celica was all show and no go. The performance, even with the 5-speed, was pathetic, and the build quality left much to be desired. I've owned two Toyota Celicas. Both died. I doubt I'll own another Toyota.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very good looking car.

Cons: Very poorly built car.

Celica Gt Is Acceptable By Azereza

For a relatively inexpensive used car, it is a good buy. I broke the manual transmission when I was younger because of stupid driving, and replacement was 1600 dollars (paid a dealer. Stupid on me). A... Read More

The Best Celica Ever By Kieth

fun car to drive, great performance and gas mileage. This is one car Toyota never should've stopped making. Scion TC is a very poor replacement, especially since the Supra died along with the Celica... Read More
