The Typical Mid 1980's Red 2 Door Sports Car (near Convertable) With An Electric Sunroof! — Everyone who has driven the "toy" loves it. I bought it to enter it in off road rally events and car club activities but it's in such great condition for a 25 year old car and it's so much fun to drive on the road that I can't bring myself to thrash it on the dirt. I have decided to keep it tidy, original and have fun on the road instead.

Pros: fun, well built, tuff, electric sunroof, sporty, drives great, plenty of power, great on fuel, easy to look after

Cons: body has a few scratches and marks, 25 years old, no power steering

Pure Fun — This was SUCH a fun car to drive. The car is low enough and the wheelbase is wide enough that the car cornered on rails. The manual transmission is a must. It's the only way you get to *feel* the car as you drive.

Pros: ~Fast and fun to drive
~Corners beautifully
~Very reliable

Cons: ~None

My Favorite Car I've Ever Driven. — 3rd generation Celicas are stupidly reliable. engines are known to well outlast the car. GT-S have Supra suspension designed by Lotus and Supra brakes, so handling is tight and precise and brakes are more than adequate. Liftbacks have the timeless, streamlined looks so they are definitely sexy cars. Interior is filled with features and comfortable. Their only real drawback is the USDM Celicas instead of coming with turbo 1.8Ls, came with the pick-up derived 22R 2.4L, which istead of giving it great top end speed, gives it immediate engine response. The 22R needs some modification from stock to be fast but is still a great engine.

Pros: Handling, braking, acceleration, appearance, extremely reliable.

Cons: Hard to find parts, low top end power, rust issues (from being 20 years old)

A True Classic. I Will Never Get Rid Of This Car. Bought It On Ebay For $1600.00 — I bought this car on ebay for $1600.00 from the original owner in 2004. All it needed was a new exhaust system. car is completely stock and everything works. Even the top was in great condition. It was a California car so it has no rust. 170,000 miles and she purrs like a kitten. Even the convertible top is in decent condition for the age. I have owned Toyotas for nearly 25 years and still think the 22r and re were the most durable 4 cyl ever built. 85 and older rear wheel drives are getting hard to come by so if you have keep it as it will only appreciate in value. well gotta go now. see ya.
