My 85 Celica Gts Coupe Still Runs Like New In 2007, Bullet Proof Engine — "Planned Obsolescence"? Not with this car. Love at first sight, I bought this car right off of the showroom floor in 1985 and I have maintained it like my life mattered on it's existence. Looks showroom new I will never sell or trade in this car, because I doubt I will ever find another car as reliable and as overall excellent as this car has been to me.

Incredible Seats And Handling — Celica 85 GT-S was my first car and that could partially, but only partially account for why I liked it so much. It had just enough power to be fun, great handling and the most comfortable seats I've ever introduced my buttocks to. Didn't like at first how it looked but with time grew to love it as well. Because of its rear wheel drive it was really bad on the snow unless you used snowtires which I never did. The car had about 180K miles when I bought it and I put another 70-80K on it without much sweat and repairs.

Get One — Fun little car. Toyota made a good reliable sporty car. In 85 it's power was more than the civics and most other 4 cylinders. With more current cars it's left behind but can keep up with most cars made 10 years after it. Not a family car but a fun gas saver. Had to replace the head gasket at approx 130,000. It was such an easy task on this engine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun

Cons: Front seat could go back more.

... Like A Faithful Lover! — Yes, it's the best of both worlds for a top down sports car! Durable 22re 4cyl. truck motor in an independent rear end driven ragtop, man, they should bring this one back today, that motor is legendary for lasting the extra duty long haul, mine runs like it was a new one, absolutely the most affordable sports car ever made, and it was only made a single season in this rear-drive configuration!

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

Pros: ... iron clad & top down pleasure too, the affordable economical sports car rag top!!!

Cons: ,,, bigger may be better for some, but it's a sports car, remember!
